Tokyo is an attractive city where new and old things coexist. Let's explore the heart of Japan in Tokyo with me.
I was born in Aichi prefecture (located between Tokyo and Kyoto) and grew up there. I have been in the Tokyo area for more than 25 years. When I was a child, I was interested in different cultures, so I studied English enthusiastically to be able to communicate with people who have a different cultural background.
After graduated from college, I had been in the computer industry for about 40 years. I've traveled a lot and visited many countries. When I was thirty's, I lived in San Francisco, California for four years. I experienced a great deal of cultural exchange at that time.
After retired, I acquired the national license of tour guide, and have been in tour guide business over two years.
I myself like walking around the towns. I sometimes do temple and shrine hopping, and once in a while visit the Sake brewery for my own research. I also like strolling around the Tsukiji food market, Ryogoku area famed with Sumo, Asakusa, and Ueno where we can feel the atmosphere of Tokyo's past decades.
Most of my tours are on foot, simply because, it's the best way to explore inner Tokyo and the surrounding area. We have a very sophisticated transportation system here in Tokyo, so we can get almost any places using train, subway, and buses.
My tours are planned to teach you about people, culture, and history of Tokyo and Japan. I aim to provide an informative experience that helps you to understand what makes Tokyo, Japan such an attractive place to be and travel to.
