I started tour guide for guests in 2016. My expertise is in Hakone and would be happy to extend tours to Kamakura, Mt.Fuji and Tokyo area. Motivation for me is to interact with guests from various countries in the world and to provide "only one experience" in Japan. My hobbies are playing soccer, watching sport games, reading history books, travels with family, and movies. I'm expecting to meet you and talk about these topics.

Great time with Kochi-san. Well planned day in Hakone. The rain that fell did not dampen our time. Kochi was informative, enthusiastic, and courteous. Lunch at a charming local spot was delicious. I would highly recommend Kochi.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with "Kochi". He was very good at navigating the day in a smoothe an efficient manner. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a good and interesting historical perspective of the area.

Stunning part of the world with a a friendly and knowledgeable guide who went out of his way to give us a superb day. Thank you
