Yoshihiro M.

Kashiwa city, Chiba, Japan

Hi, I am Yoshi. I am a government certified English speaking tour guide as well as 1st class registered architect in Tokyo.

I am very glad to show you Tokyo and its vicinity. Greater Tokyo Area is a vast area and its population is almost 30 million, 1 of 4 Japanese people are really living in this Greater Tokyo Area.

Tokyo is a dynamic city, full of modern architecture and technology. However you can see so many historic places and natural beauty as well. As I am a registered architect, I can show you architectures from traditional one to contemporary one. I like to introduce the back stories of construcion in Japan comparing with that of foreign countries.

I had been working in construction field for many years and have experience of working in oversees countries, like in Saudi Arabia 4 years, in Singapore 2 years, in Thailand 4 years and 7 years in USA. Out of 7 years in US, I had been in KY for 2 years and 5 years in NY respectively. The project I was engaged in KY wa a first automotive plant of Toyota. As I have worked in oversees countries totally 17 years, I understand people from abroad and the difference of culture between country you are from and Japan.

In 2020 the Tokyo Olympics will be held. It is a good chance to see Japanese beauty, to find out Japanese culture, enjoy Japanese food and Japanese people and their everyday life at this time.

My hobbies are walking, taking photographs, gardening, singing and playing golf. I can guide the other cities in japan, like kanazawa, kyoto and Hiroshima. At my tour in Tokyo, I like to share the information of theses places if you are planning to visit in addition to Tokyo. I am very flexible and fun person. I would like to listen your expectations and like to share an interaction opportunity with local people.
I am looking forward to having a chance to experience tour in Japan with you!
