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 really helped by taking care of visitors touring Ise & the surrounding for a whole day. The communication for arranging the itinerary was smooth and Kumi answered not only all questions, but provided ideas by herself. I felt assured that the visitors would have a great day with Kumi, and my feelings were confirmed. It was a pleasure asking Kumi to take care of the tour, and can recommend her strongly.
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.
