Hi, I am Shinji. I am a certified national guide interpreter. I like English and have been studying it since I was 12. As I studied English and Western culture, I realized not only the differences between the Japanese culture and the Western one but the uniquness of the Japanese culture. I soon became interested in our own culture and history and studied them a lot. I would like to show you so many interesting aspects of Japanese culture. I live in Kanagawa Pref., which is close to Tokyo. Kanagawa pref. has an ancient central city of Kamakura where samurai first established its government in the 12th century, and also Hakone, which is full of nature and is one of the most popular hot spring resorts in Japan. And as you know, Tokyo has been the capital of Japan after Kyoto since the early 17th century. It has many modern shopping districts as well as many histroric sites. I am sure that Tokyo and Kanagawa will attract you and fascinate you. It will be my great pleasure to help you enjoy places with new and old faces or with lots of nature, and learn more about Japanese culture, people and their lifestyle. I am looking forward to showing you aroud those places.
