|Welcome to my page
I am an English guide
in charge of Omotesando.
|Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.|
Omotesando is an area between Harajuku station and Aoyama. In Japanese, literally, it was the front approach to Meiji Jingu shrine in the old days. Omotesando Hills is the work of French Commandeur winning architect, Tadao Ando. The main street is a Japanese Champs Elysees lined with buildings which contain fashion brand’s shops. They were created by prominent architects, too. The headquarters of Comme des Garcons is in Omotesando. It is located in the area between Shibuya-ward and Minato-ward, Tokyo, 20 minutes by car from Shinjuku. If you use trains, you can start at JR Harajuku station or Tokyo metro’s Omotesando station. I will pick you up at the station. John Lennon visited the souvenir shop “Oriental Bazaar”, and, there is a toy department store “KIDDY LAND” where Michael Jackson hired the whole shop. You can dive into shopping! I can guide you to various secondhand clothes stores. You will find Kitsch items there. Takeshita street and Laforet Harajuku, which is the Mecca of Japanese Kawaii culture, is a quite interesting place. There are many long-established Japanese confectionary shops in Omotesando, and you can enjoy gourmet at pork cutlet’s restaurant “Maisen”. Its building is a renovated public bath.
|My personal information|
I used to work at Gaienmae, so, I have visited Omotesando since a long time ago. I love walking. I sometimes walk from Shibuya station to Harajuku station. 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.”.
