I like walking, tennis, badminton, yoga. Also, I learned “Kado” Japanese flower arrangement. Kumano has many beautiful flowers and trees. In Wakayama prefecture, Kumano pilgrimage route was designated as UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. I would like to share the beauty of Kumano. I have guided many tourists for the past two years. Why did I get this license of English guide? Because I like speaking with tourists from abroad.They said "Let's go to Kumano Kodo " I began to study English 3 years ago to pass the examination licenced guide. Thanks to my friends I could get the licence and i can speak English a little. Have fun Japanese history, culture, walking. I am waiting for you at Kumano Hongu.
