Hello ! My name is Kazuo(和夫・かずお) which means a peaceful man in Japanese,
so please don't worry, I am a gentle,kind person.

I had worked at one of the biggest companies in Japan for 33 years.
I belonged to the sales department of the company.
So, I am familiar with the relationship of others.

I have traveled to more than 10 countries, I love traveling and meeting with new people.
This is the reason why I chose the English guide as my work.
I also would like to enjoy communicating with foreign tourist with this job.
Other than travel, my favorite is history, food, and sports including martial arts.
I have learned karate for more than five years ,and now I have a black belt of karate ,
also a black belt of judo ( my high school had judo lessons once a week)

Before becoming an English guide, I have joined Tokyo city guide club ,
specialize in Asakusa, Imperial palace and Meiji shrine,so I have a good knowledge of Tokyo.
I have many tour plans, but I can arrange tour depending on your request.

I am looking forward to seeing you.

“ Awesome guide! ”

Awesome guide! We booked Kazuo the day of our tour & he communicated very well with me while I was trying to booked him. He was good at making sure we were comfortable as we were touring with an elderly person so we had to take our time waking and going up and down subway stair cases. He was very patient & friendly through out the tour. Really enjoyed having to tour us around and we will definitely hire him again! He was also nice enough to give us instructions on going to other places for the remainder of our stay in Japan.

“ Great tour of Shinjuku ”

We had a private tour with Kaz-San on our first day in Tokyo. Kaz was very prepared with maps and a detailed itinerary of where to go and also giving us the flexibility to choose our destinations. He helped us with some common Japanese phrases and local history of all the places we went. We are still working on our “gozaimas” :) arigatogozaimas Kaz, we appreciate the extra time and attention you took to make our tour a great experience. Jay

“ Wonderful Tour of Shrines and Temples ”

Our small group of ex-pats hired Kazuo-san to take us around to some shrines and temples and explain the differences between the two main religions here in Japan - Shintoism and Buddhism. Kazuo-san was a excellent guide and very prepared for our tour. He even made a notebook for each of us with explanations of all the different aspects of both types of religious buildings and what goes on there. Our whole group learned a lot about religion in Japan and will be great guides for our guests when they visit.
