I had worked for the Japan's biggest travel agency JTB (Japan Tourist Bureau) for 35 years as a tour escort for Japanese.
I visited 67 countries and of course all over Japan as well. So I’m familiar with almost all of the tourist attractions in Japan.
More over I’m also a professional magician now. I’m a member magician of The Magic Castle in Hollywood in US. That's why I made a decision to become an English tour guide.
I acquired a tour guide license issued by the Japanese government with a lot of hard work in 2016 and I started this new career.
I guided 1,420 people with 17 groups totaly last year in 2017.
Through long work for travel business, I was assigned to excursions of all over Japan, such as Sapporo, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Okinawa and others, which gave me intimate knowledge about most places in the country.
In addition, I am adept in business fields and knowledgeable about historical sites, traditional culture and modern subcultures in Japan.
