I've resumed guiding but only around Mie Prefecture (where my home is) and Nagoya area until April 2018 after my baby starts to attend childcare service. I apologise for the lack of flexibility and the inconvenience caused.
Hi! I'm Kumi, a tour guide and an interpreter living in Mie Prefecture, about 1 hour away from Nagoya by train.
As I had a chance to live in Singapore, a country that accepts diversity, I am rather cosmopolitan as a Japanese. . . That's why I am in this business! I love meeting people from all over the world (that's you!), and I am passionate to introduce you to my country too.
My interests are enjoying good food and jogging (to burn all the calories out after eating too much. ) Let me also add that I am a wife of a Buddhist priest despite my alma mater. I hope I can make use of my limited knowledge on Buddhism in Japan upon my guiding.
I was living in Tokyo area until April 2012 and gave tours in the city.
Please drop me a line should you need any assistance :)
I'm also happy to make and guide your very own customized tours!
A Recent Review of this guide
Kumi guided my son and I through a fantastic day tour of two castles - Nagoya and Inuyama. We loved seeing the contrast of the two castles, and I thoroughly enjoyed our many conversations with Kumi. She also helped me skip the line and make rail reservations for the remaining week of our trip. Highly recommended!!!
I am a licensed tour guide since 2009 (Registration Number: EN00084 under Mie Prefecture).
Education: International Christian University (B.L.A), Linguistics
I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
