Welcome to my page

I am an English guide

in charge of Furukawa Garden & Rikugien.

 

Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

 

Sightseeing spots: Furukawa Garden & Rikugien You visit two scenic spots. One is Furukawa Garden which consists of a western-style residence and garden on a hill, and a Japanese-style garden on a lower land. The residence and Japanese-style garden was designed by different two masters. Rikugien is a typical Japanese-style garden designed by a feudal lord, which is one of the most famous masterpieces in Tokyo. The garden is more attractive in spring with viewing cherry blossoms and azaleas, in autumn with viewing colored leaves. Through this tour, you learn more about the Edo period(1603-1867) and modernization after the Meiji Restoration starting in 1853 ending in 1889. After meeting at your hotel, the tour starts. Basically, we break up at Komagome Station(JR Yamanote line or Metro Nanboku line). If you have any request, I will flexibly adjust to 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?
