Welcome to Japan I love! I have enormous pleasures to offer you " highlight tour of Nagoya, Kyoto, Iseshima and Takayama", and also "off the beaten tours" meeting your requests.

I am always so excited at serving you as a tour-guide for your making wonderful memories and experiences, which remains in your recollections for your lifetime.

I was born and brought up in Nagoya, and moved to Tokyo to study at Sophia University. On graduation I joined Murata mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kyoto, working in overseas sales division. Then, I moved to PolyGram (Now Universal music) in Tokyo, had been working for 25 years with many foreign musicians. After early-retiring, I am living in Kuwana-city, Mie in the vicinity of Nagoya with my wife and got the license of a tour guide in English certified by Japanese government.

My interests:
"Love music, Japanese garden, eating food. "
I speak Russian and love Russian classical music.
I am an enthusiastic lover of western classical music, and also have a great interest in Gagaku, a type of Japanese classical music that has been performed at the Imperial Court, enjoy playing a Japanese traditional flute for Gagaku.
Also, visiting Japanese style garden and eating variety of food are my favorite matters.

I would be very glad to help you discover your own Japan and create memories that will last forever. You should not miss this chance in my opinion. See you soon!

Cordially and respectfully
