Hi! My name is Fuhito, and I would love to be your Japanese tour guide in English!
I can take you on many wonderful trips around Japan, and I specialize in giving extraordinary experiences that you will never forget, from popular sightseeing spots to places off the beaten track.
Let me share a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in Tokyo’s countryside, and I have spent 3.5 years abroad when I was a child. While I was abroad, I realized that I knew so little about my own country. Since then, I became much more interested in Japan, and started to research a lot. The more I learned about Japan, the more I became more attracted to Japanese history, culture, and customs, which made me want to live like an ideal Japanese person in some way. I first started out as a volunteer guide and interpreter in Tokyo, and I am now certified as national licensed guide and interpreter, and have been traveling around Japan to learn more about my country, and to share it with my future guests and friends. As I introduced things about Japan, I found myself enjoying seeing my friends and guests becoming more interested in Japan. Since then, I have also sought out opportunities to get involved in many cultural exchange programs such as walking tours, promoting sister city relationships, taking care of delegations, and organizing homestay programs.
I also love to take photos of beautiful scenery, people, and traditional things. I would be more than happy to take your photos for you while you are in Japan, so please feel free to ask! There are so many memories that you can remember from a single photo. Please reach out to me if you have any specific requests or even if you’re just looking for information. I would be delighted to take you to photogenic places to take some photos together!
I always enjoy guiding and want to contribute to your wonderful trip with the very best of my hospitality. When you have a chance to travel around Japan, please feel free to ask me anything!
And if you book me for a tour, we will surely have a great time together.
I look forward to seeing you in Japan!

We were in town for a conference and our sightseeing time was somewhat limited. I am so glad we were able to find Fuhito, as he made the full day packed with some of the best arts, culture, dining, history, and just a great day. Fuhito was able to add tremendous value by sharing the whole story of the many sights we visited. We felt like we were getting the inside scoop as he toured us around.
Thank you for choosing me as your guide! I am happy to see that you enjoyed my tour and the atmosphere of Kyoto. I myself also enjoyed going around Kyoto with you and sharing the stories coloring the entire day. I hope now you are more interested about our country and culture, which makes you want to visit again. Looking forward to see you again some day!
