About

I've been involved in English education at public junior high school and prefectural board of education for more than 40 years as a teacher, teachers' consultant and a principal.Now retired, I’m very interested in introducing many places of historical interest and scenic beauty in my hometown to international visitors to Japan.My motto in life is ”once-in-a-lifetime encounter”. I'm more than happy to help make your trip the most impressive one.
Why don't you get off the beaten track and visit Shinjo and Mogami regions? Shinjo City is now world-famous for its Shinjo Festival, registered by UNESCO as an Intangible World Cultural Heritage, December in 2016. I’m sure that you can definitely enjoy both the festival and the subtle harmony between man and nature in this area.

“ Sakata full day tour ”

We had a very good time with Kuniaki visiting Sakata while our ship had a stop there. When we arrived Kuniaki was waiting for us at the agreed meeting point. His English was excellent. Since we had limited time to visit, we were happy to have a very well organized guide with us. The tour was well managed and we got to see what was in our program for the day. We enjoyed every place we visited. The monk sanctuary is not a place to be missed. Kuniaki is very knowledgeable and a pleasing person to be around. Without hesitation we would recommend Kuniaki as a guide.

Kuniaki:

Thanks a lot for your tour review. It is a very good reminiscence for me, too. I'm happy that you had the time of your life visiting the Five-Story Pagoda, Mt. Haguro, Rice Storehouses, Maiko Teahouse, and Kaiko-ji Temple, which houses two living Buddhas (you mentioned above). Your family is always very punctual and considerate to others. I've never met such an amiable family in my whole life. Have fun with the rest of your trip in Japan . See you around. Bon Voyage! Thank you so much.
