|Welcome to my page
I am an English guide
in charge of Yanesen.
|Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.|
The word “Yanesen” is made up simply of the initial sounds of the three area’s names such as Yanaka, Nezu, Sendagi. It is the area at the west side of Ueno. It is dotted with small temples and galleries, shopping streets, and is a perfect place for a walk. It is located in Taito ward, Tokyo, 40 minutes by car from Shinjuku. You can start from JR Nippori station, or Tokyo metro’s Nezu station or Sendagi station. I will pick you up at the station. It is close to Tokyo University of Arts. So, lots of this university’s students live there. In fall, there is a festival of arts in Yanaka. At small temples of Yanesen, you can spend a quiet time. It is different from big temples or shrines which is full of tourists. How about visiting the Seven Deities of Good Fortune? In addition, there are many galleries, such as SCAI THE BATHHOUSE, which refurbished a public bath and you will able to be closer to Japanese art than going to big museums. There are also long-established Japanese confectionary shops and buckwheat noodle restaurants, then you can also enjoy gourmet. They have the delicatessen such as croquettes and tasty coffee, too. Sampling various kinds of food is so fun. There are many shops of Japanese miscellaneous goods. At Yanesen, you have no shortage of souvenirs.
|My personal information|
I used to work in Ueno, so, I have visited Yanesen since a long time ago. I love walking. I sometimes walk from Tokyo station to Sensoji temple or to Nezu shrine. I majored in European culture at our university and visited London when I was 20 and experienced a homestay. After my graduation I got a variety of jobs, but my favorite one is a museum educator. I visited elementary and junior high schools, and held outreach programs there. I love cultural arts. My Eiken (English proficiency test)’s Grade is 2, and TOEIC score is 830 points. I am qualified as a National guide of Japan. In 2012, I had a short period internship at Japanese garden in San Diego. As for my personality, my friends say “You are a hard worker.” At my favorite field, I like to explore everything. However, it seems that I have an aspect of taking things too seriously. As I’m learning the Omotesenke school’s tea ceremony, I have a confidence in the hospitality as a guide.
I will accept a maximum of 5 people per 1 tour. It costs 100 dollars in 3 hours. Please divide 100 dollars by the number of participants. During your tour, when the admission fee and transportation expenses, and so on, are required, please pay for the guide’s admission fee and transportation expenses. Needless to say, I’m agreeable to negotiate the prices or terms and conditions.
Please read my proposal carefully. I will make every effort to make your trip pleasant.
I will e-mail my proposal to you if you consider to request my service.
|Voices of Customers|
I have a reputation for the selection of tasty restaurants. For elderly guests, I always look for the place where they can have a seat as much as possible, and, it surely pleases them. For my guests, it seems that my sense of selections for souvenirs is reliable. They often says, “Pick out the one that you think it is the best.”.
