Born in Hokkaido and raised in many different parts of Japan as my father was a public officer. This is probably how my passion for the tourism industry might have started. Majored in Italian at a university in Osaka. After graduating from university, worked in clerical and teaching jobs.
Moved to the UK to improve my English, and lived there for two years in 1995-1996. Completed Master’s degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language at the University of Reading.
After returning to Japan, experienced various occupations, including a sales representative and an editor in the English Language Teaching sector. Have been working as a licensed guide-interpreter in English since 2014.
Live in the city of Sagamihara, near Tokyo, with my husband now.
Specialties and Hobbies:
- Have a strong interest in Noh, a traditional Japanese performing art.
- Love watching old films. My favorite filmmakers are Kurosawa, Fellini and Visconti.
- Enjoy exploring restaurants.
Hello and welcome to Japan! Why don’t we explore Tokyo and surrounding places together? There are so many attractive things to see and do. My goal is to make your day the best day in your holidays. I look forward to meeting you very soon!
