Kanagawa_Yokohama Minato Mirai

Yokohama Minato Mirai.


My proposal


  Government licensed tour guide. I have been living in Yokohama for 35 years, and have been working in Tokyo for more than 30 years; 20 years as a business person,10 years as a teacher.
So, I’m familiar with sightseeing spots and hidden places in Yokohama, while Tokyo is another special place for me!
Three years ago, I became a tour guide just because I love Japan and I’m proud of my country! Among all, I’m really fascinated with the seasonal changes, 4 clear-cut seasons; each of them has its own attraction.
