Hirohisa S.

Tokyo, Japan

Welcome to Japan! From me, Hirohisa. I'm a certified National Guide Interpreter (English) and love to travel around the world myself.

With my long and plenty of travel experiences as well we my strong interest in Japanese culture and history, I will ensure that you completely enjoy every second of your Japan.

I've been living in greater Tokyo for nearly four decades and Osaka for five years. I also frequently travel to Kyoto, my most favorite city in the world. This means I'm confident in guiding you throughout greater Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. If you need vegetarian, halal or some other food selection, just let me know I'll try to find it for you. And if you're a more adventurous eater, I'll show you some of my local favourites!

I love to travel, read books -especially on history, watch ball games and swim with my young kids. I live in central Tokyo with my wife and two kids. I've been involved in international business for three decades until early this year and lived in Jakarta for five over years until 2001. I also finished AMP (Advanced Management Program) Class 175 of Harvard Business School in 2008.

I really look forward to helping you enjoy your JAPAN!

Thanks and see you soon!!
