About

I was born and live in Ttottori prefecture which is at the southwestern part of Honshu Island. Our area is rich with virgin nature, purely preserved culture and amiable people.
If you are weary of crowds in big cities like Tokyo, please visit our area to get the slow life and healing. Of course, you can explore various unique activities, too. I worked for a TV station for 37 years and produced more than 1,000 programs dealing with this area.
After retiring, I became a tour guide for foreign tourists. I love history, mountain trekking, igo(board game) and travel. Would you share wonderful experience with me in San-in(Tottori and Shimane) District?

“ The Director of an incredible day ”

Before arriving Mr. Shun very communicative and made an effort to learn our preferences, so we could maximize our day in Kyoto. He picked up at Kobe Cruise Terminal and travel with us to Kioto. On the way he handed a printed itinerary to every person as well as a timeline with the history of Japan with the important sites that we were going to visit. Mr. Shun walks fast and was tireless, took us to the best places, told us funny stories and interesting facts about Japan culture, history and his own life in Japan. We learned a lot by using different means of transportation. We spent 10 wonderful hours with Mr. Shun. An unforgettable detail, Mr. Shun received us with a bag of Japan sweets. We recommend him 100%, and we definitely will hire him again, he also tours others cities in Japan.

Shun:

Hi Martha, Thank you for your review . You gave me too many nice words about me. To tell the truth, I had been concerned that I might have guided you with too difficult topics. But I feel grateful now to have read your review. By the way, I tried to send you the photo we took at Kyoto, but I failed. I have no idea the reason so far. I'll try it again later if possible. Anyway if you will have a chance to visit Japan again, please contact me. Thank you again. I hope you will spend happy days in your country. Shun

“ Kyoto Customized Private Tour ”

My friend and I booked a 6 hour custom private tour to specifically visit the Sagano bamboo forest in Arashiyama, Tenryu-ji Temple, and the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto. Shun met us at our hotel and we made our way to each spot via the train. At the Sagano bamboo forest, he mentioned that there was an option to see Okochi Denjiro's (famous past silent film actor private villa. We decided to do that and the views were great! The experience also included matcha tea overlooking the bamboo forest. Overall, it was super helpful to have a professional guide navigate the way, which in turn, creates a stress free experience. I highly recommend Shun. Prior to the tour, we communicated through email and he was very accommodating. He also took great pictures for us and picked out a good lunch spot. The tour was definitely worth it!

Shun:

Thank you, Tracy, for your review. The honor is more than I deserve. To tell the truth, I couldn't get correctly what you 'd like to see in Kyoto first. But I saw soon that you were really having fun in contact with different cultures in Japan. I was a little surprised by your eagerness for taking pictures. You and your friend were particular about photo angles at Arashiyama, weren't you? I hope the days you spent in Japan would be your unforgettable memory. And I wish you'll visit Japan again. There are a lot of wonderful places, especially in the countryside in Japan. Thank you, again.

“ Customized tour to kyoto and nara ”

Our trip to osaka, kyoto and nara was made memorable by Shun-san. He was very accomodating with all our requests... from meeting us at a place in osaka so we wouldnt get lost to arranging our itinerary to fit all the places that we want to visit in kyoto and nara for 2 days. Happy and grateful to have him as our guide. We wouldnt have covered a lot of places in 2 days without him... He was also very knowlegable about the places we visited and constantly provides us with great insights on japanese culture and language... hope to get him as our guide again on our next visit to Japan. :)

Shun:

Sally-san, Thank you for posting your review. I suppose you and your friends are back to your daily life working at each place in Philippines. I'm now in my hometown and remember you. There happened a lot of things during our 2-day tour in Kyoto and Nara. First, it was raining all day. I thought how unlucky we were! But, I realized soon that you had really tried to enjoy the journey and had found something beauty at Arashiyama even in the rain. I couldn’t forget the scene in Nara. You were really enjoyable playing with deer. To tell the truth, I was concerned about the schedule at that time. Do you remember? When Lawrence-san successfully passed the hole of the post at the Great Buddha Hall, people burst into applause. There were some other impressive happenings. At the end of the tour, I thought I was very happy to have been your guide. Please make a chance to visit Japan again. Give your friends my best regards, thank you. Shun
