Hisashi O.

Suzuka, Aichi, Japan

Hi, My name is Hisahi. Since I obtained the national license as a proffesional tour guide in 2017, I have guided foreign customers mainly at Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka!

By using my expertise on Japanese literature, history and ceramics I can show you deep and distinctive local things of Kansai region.

Since I was a little child, visual art has been one of my great interests.

Western painters were the main source for my own paintings and drawings. But it was not until I met with Japanese and Chinese classics at college that I found and understood the beauty of the Japanese art!

As an earnest amateur scholar but proffesional guide, the great joy of mine lies in discovering the beauties of Japan: nature, traditions, life, and people with my customers!

Most of my time has been devoted to searching for the pleasure of especially foreign-tourists and visitors as a licensed guide, and so I wil add more valued moments to your stay in Japan!

Supplements: bike rider on cross country bike and road bike. book reader on mysteries. World traveler visited over 20 major cities across the world.

I am very looking forward to seeing my guests from abroad here in Japan!

Thank you!!!

We had a wonderful tour with Hisashi. our group consisted of 3 generations (the oldest a 90 year old), 2 wheelchairs and a special needs person. He was patient, friendly, and sensitive to all of our needs. We give him a rating of 5.
