I passed English 3 years ago in 2015 and Spanish in 1978 over 40 years ago.
I lived in the USA for over 10 years and in Latin America for over 5 years. I am now settled in Yokohama, Japan for over 20 years.
My favorite hobby is appreciating different glasses of wines from different wine regions of the world.
In fact, I loved wine so much, I studied wine when I was stationed at New York, and finally became the wine sommelier. Now, I also teach wine at least once a month in Tokyo and have over 100 registered students.
My main area for guiding is Tokyo. Tokyo offers such a wide variety of attractions and beautiful places such as historical and cultural places, museums, modern buildings, and fine restaurants.
I especially like to take friends to many different styles of Japanese restaurants and bars. As a wine sommelier, I can guide you to the good combinations of Japanese Foods and Drinks not only wines but also Sake, Shochu and Whiskies and others.
In addition to Tokyo, I also do guiding for places like Nikko, Kamakura, Hakone, Mt. Fuji area and its surrounding area.
I do guiding not only for daytime but also for evenings like from 5:30 -9:30. So if you come to Japan and looking for a guide to a variety of Japanese foods and drinks please contact me.
Remember, Japanese foods are not only Sushi, Tempura and Sukiyaki.
I hope you can enjoy Japan with me.
I will be waiting for your contacts.

・I can not provide guiding while I am driving. Here in Japan, that activity requires a special driving license. I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
