What is a Licensed Guide?
Licensed guides are professionals approved by the Japan Tourism Agency. Licensed guides have passed tough examinations and are highly knowledgeable about the history and places that feature in their tours. In Japan, unlicensed guides are operating illegally, and are therefore considered to be of lesser quality to licensed guides, who carry official registration cards which represent professionalism and legalit
