Hello, My name is Yoshio Ogawa. Please call me Yoshi for short. I am a Government licensed tour guide. I have been working as a tour guide mainly in Kanto area for the past 3 years. I can show you around the major places of interests in Tokyo, Hakone, Kamakura and Nikko. My hobbies includes playing tennis, skiing, reading novels, seeing movies and motorcyle riding. I got interested in riding bikes rather late in my 50's, got the license and right now I am riding Honda CB1100. I also enjoy singing karaoke. About 2 years ago, I built a new house with 3 rooms. I can invite the guests from oversees and have them stay at my place for a few days. I live in Ibaraki, which is the north east of Tokyo. Recently the trains started going to the very center of Tokyo, Tokyo station and it became more and more easier to commute to Tokyo. I can show you around Ibaraki or Chiba area as well. So let's get to know each other. See you soon.read more

Hi, Thuy. Thank you very much for writing the review. I'm glad to hear that you had a good time. When you visit Japan again, don't hesitate to contact me. I wish I had more time to talk to Brandon and Amie. Give my best to your family. Take care. Yoshio Ogawa
Yoshio was a fantastic guide on our trip to Ushiku Daibutsu to see the Great Buddha... Yoshi organized to use his own car to make most of the journey after a train ride out to where he lives... This was mainly because we were a small group & had our 2yo daughter with us... I can't thank you enough Yoshi for personally driving us to see the Big Buddha statue... Our daughter was very tired from all the traveling getting to Japan so having our own car to relax in was awesome... We all really enjoyed our day which included taking the life up inside the Buddha... I can recommend Yoshio to anyone looking to make there way out to see the Big Buddha statue & the Ushiku Daidutsu area... Thanks you...
Dear Ben. Thank you very very much for writing the review on the Ushiku Daibutsu tour. I'm really glad to know that you had a good time in Ushiku. You must have enjoyed visiting Kyoto and some other interesting places as well. Next time when you come to Japan, be sure to contact me. I can invite you to my house and show other tourist spots. And i can meet your daughter who has grown up to a charming girl, too,
