Fields of Expertise:
History, traditional culture, literature

I was born in Ise City, which is famous for a Shinto shrine dedicated to Sun Goddess, and moved to Kyoto after graduating from senior high school to study English literature at university. Since then, I have been living in the Kansai region. Currently, I live in Otsu City near the largest lake in Japan called “Lake Biwa” and like walking along the lakeside on my days off. I had worked as a translator of technical documents for more than 10 years before getting the national license as an English-speaking tour guide in 2014. I like history, traditional culture, and literature and mainly conduct tours in Kyoto and Nara. In addition to these two ancient capitals, I have experience of guiding in Shiga, Osaka, Mt. Koya, Himeji, Hiroshima, and Naoshima in West Japan as well as Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, and Hakone in East Japan. In my tours, I give top priority to flexibility to be responsive to your interests, weather, and other various conditions. I would be honored if I can become a part of your memorable trip in Japan.
