Tokyo_Shibamata

Welcome to my page

I am an English guide

in charge of Shibamata.

 

Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

 

Shibamata in the northeast part of Tokyo, the old temple town well known for a movie setting Shibamata is located one hour by train from the central Tokyo. It is well known for a setting of a popular movie entitled Otoko wa Tsuraiyo meaning “Men have tough time”. A narrow approach path to a temple, Shibamata Taishakuten, is lined with restaurants serving various kinds of Japanese dishes, sweets shops particularly serving rice dumpling and souvenir shops. After praying to the Buddhist deity, you appreciate elaborate carvings of the main hall and a lovely Japanese-style garden in the precinct, and then you can enjoy eating something special for lunch or snack. Eating there is a lot of fun. Around the temple, there are many attractions including a memorial museum of Tora-san (a main character in Otoko wa Tsuraiyo) and Yamamoto-tei, the old traditional residence with a cozy Japanese-style garden, which is highly praised by the U. S. garden magazine and a must-see. Finally, you never forget to see a view of the Edogawa River from the bank, and as a result you feel that you may be like Tora-san. In the tour, a guide meets you at your hotel in the middle of Tokyo before starting and after the tour, we break up at Shibamata. If you have any request, a guide will meet them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My personal information

 

  I am a 60-year-old English speaking national licensed tour guide. I have welcomed and accompanied many guests from overseas for two years. I was born and grew up in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a big trading company in Tokyo for 35 years, so I am a native of Tokyo or Tokyoite. The charms in sightseeing places in Tokyo are that one is co-existence of tradition and modernity and the other is its diversity. Even in the central part, there are a lot of green park rich in nature. You can enjoy activities in both the sea and the mountains. Tokyo has become more sophisticated in the various aspects such as streets, buildings, information services, security and so on while preserving tradition and identity towards the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. I always conduct tours to make the guests enjoyable not only by accompanying them for sightseeing but also by talking about the background and episode of the site. I hope the guests from all over the world will enjoy tours accompanied by me. I will make an effort to improve knowledge and skills to entertain guests. I think it is important to be kind and friendly. I want to help you have good memories in tours. Why don’t you join me?
