Name: Kumiko (MS)
Language: English Interpreter-Guide
Guiding Area: Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone, Nikko
I had worked for an International Financial Institutions in Tokyo for more than 30 years before I became a guide. I used to live in New York and St. Albans (U.K.). As a result of these experiences, I realized that Japan has a unique culture and social values, based on its history and geographical location. I’d like to share this with you.
Specialties and Hobbies:
I am an Art lover. I do oil painting and finished Art Business Masterclass course by Christies to learn art appreciation, art history, valuation and art market. There are many art galleries and museums in Tokyo and other major cities in Japan. I will walk you through renowned galleries observing major exhibitions and smaller privately owned galleries showcasing the best in local talent, getting a taste of what Tokyo has to offer in the creative world.
I think most visitors coming to Japan are hoping both to enjoy themselves and also to have a meaningful encounter with a different culture. Tokyo is a diverse city that is full of charm, with state-of-the-art technology, cutting edge fashion and fantastic food. Tokyo is my hometown and I am looking forward to helping you explore my city and enjoy everything it has to offer. I am looking forward to seeing you soon!
