Hi! I'm Susumu, a certified English tour guide.
I was born in Gunma prefecture (100km Northwest of Tokyo) and have worked in Tokyo for 30 years.
In 2011, Japan was hit by a great earthquake. Then, motivation to volunteer increased throughout the country. One day, I happened to help foreign tourists who lost their way. Since then, it became my volunteer activity. As a result, I found so many foreign tourists lost their way. And, some of them advised me to become an English tour guide. It led me to obtain the guide license.
My hobby is walking, I enjoy finding strange things along the way and studying about them. My interests are history and background. I think history isn’t a list of events, there are many stories behind the events. To find historical story is exciting for me.
For 20 years, I’ve walked around Tokyo and adjacent prefectures. So, I'm familiar with many sightseeing spots within 100km of Tokyo.
As an English tour guide, I’ve guided many guests for the past three years.
I love travel and traveler. So, it’s a great pleasure to make my guests happy by my tour.
Moreover, it’s a great honor for me, I’ve requested to guide again from previous two guests.
When you have a chance to visit Tokyo, please contact me and enjoy your tour!
I propose standard tour courses, but I am ready to modify them according to your request as far as I can.
I'll be looking forward to seeing you, spending wonderful time with you.
See you soon!
