Private tour guide Masaharu

Masaharu I.

Hirosaki, Aomori, Japan

Would you like to tour around Aomori Prefecture ?

If you do, I can take you to places of your interests.
From Aomori, would you like to go to Hokkaido or to Tokyo ?
If you do, I can do that, too.
I speak Tsugaru dialect (Japanese dialect spoken in this area and very different from the one spoken in Tokyo or other places in Japan) and I can be a bridge between you and our people here. I lived in Amsterdam, Holland for 11 years, NJ and Florida, the USA for almost 30 years and India for 1 year in charge of sales for Japanese companies. I also stayed in Spain for 1. 5 years, England for 1. 5 years and in Helsinki for 6 months as a student. Since I came back to Japan, I started to work as a guide (English). I was born in Hirosaki and I love this place with history and nature surrounding our town. It's different from big cities and we have a lot of things to show you. Please visit us and I will be very happy to show you the best of our place.


Guide license No.17 by the governor of Aomori Prefecture in 2000.

Since I am not a driver for a commercial vehicle, I cannot drive you in my car. But I can arrange for a car and driver.
