Hiroshi K.

Kuwana, Mie, Japan

Dear tourist! Welcome to Nagoya I love! I was born, brought up in Nagoya, so I am proud of much knowledge of Nagoya and the areas around Nagoya such as Takayama in Gifu, Iseshima area in Mie.  

I have enormous pleasures to offer you the " highlight tour around Nagoya" for first visitors, and at the same time "off the beaten Nagoya tours" meeting your requests.
When you have any questions about the tour or you don't find exactly what you're looking for, please be free to contact me. I will create a custom-made itinerary for you and can offer you recommendable spots considering your interest.
I am always so excited at serving you as a tour-guide for your making wonderful memories and experiences during your tour, which remains in your recollections for your lifetime.

Biography:
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 and moved to PolyGram (Now Universal music) in Tokyo, had been working for around 25 years with many foreign musicians. After early-retiring, I moved to Kuwana-city in the vicinity of Nagoya with my wife and got the license of a tour guide in English certified by Japanese government. Since 2017 I have been enjoying serving tourists from overseas as a tour guide.

My interests:
"Love music, Japanese garden, eating food. "
I am an enthusiastic lover of western classical music, every day listening to music.
I speak some Russian because I love Russian classical music.
I 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 is one of my most favorite matters and love eating.
So you would get some knowledge in Japanese food reflected on Japanese culture.

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

Cordially and respectfully

HIroshi
