Dear Travelers ! I'm KAORU. (English name : Katie)
I love mountain climbing as you see in my photo and also traveling.
Now I'm teaching English at vocational school as a part-time teacher, but used to be a tour guide to take Japanese tourists abroad.
Why did I become a national certificated guide ?
I'd love to introduce real Japan to you foreign people. I think there are a wide variety of people, customs, places, foods ... in your country. Vice versa in my country !
I'd like you to meet real Japan not only Tokyo or Kyoto but also suburbs and countryside.
Please come to visit Japan and see me ! Find different sides of Japan !
