I'd like to introduce myself shortly. My family is big. Three children and five grandchildren. I live both in Kyoto house and in Tokyo house by moving back and forth according to tour schedule. I grew up in Kyoto, so to speak Kyotoites. I used to be an engineer of steel company. After having retired in 2015, I started new life as a tour guide. Many happy time to meet wonderful guests.
My ancestor was Samurai leader 15th century in Kyoto. Of course I haven't meet him. But he is said to be strong warrior by wielding Katana sword. But for me no idea how to use Katana, only cooking knife in my house with kitchen boss my wife. On my pastime I enjoy playing golf and listen to the music. Jazz vocal is my taste, Tony Bennett, Whitney Houston, Billy Joel. Yes I am karaoke lover.
Japan is unique country. At the turning point of Meiji Restoration 17th century, it dramatically changed from isolated society to new culture by absorbing different essence and knowledge. Such Japanese cultural diversity attracts visitors around the world. Amazing landscape water and dry gardens, relaxing by onsen hot springs with tasting sake, Washoku healthy and gem-like cuisine, lovely pink cherry blossom, solemn shrines and philosophical Zen temples, exotic seaport towns, intriguing big city Tokyo and Osaka etc.
My available tour areas are so wide. Not only Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura and Hakone but also my hometowns Kyoto and Osaka, Nara, Kobe. I am pleased to customize and tailor your plan, just once-in-a-lifetime tour ! Now is prologue to start talking together. I am looking forward to your message.
S'wondeful, s'marvelous I'd like to see you soon !
