Welcome to my page

I am an English guide

in charge of Kagurazaka.

 

Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

 

Sight-seeing spot: Kagurazaka
Kagurazaka is a sloping road which starts at JR Iidabashi Station and continues to the northward. Kagura is a dance dedicated to Gods in Shinto. It is said that this name was attached to it because the Kagura was played when a portable shrine passed this road at a festival.There are temples and shrines such as Zenkokuji temple that worships Vaisravana who is a guardian god of Buddhism.Akagi Shrine is very unique. It is fusing with the modern architecture which was built by Kengo Kuma, who is creating the National Stadium which will be the venue of the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. It is an attractive street which has well-established Japanese restaurants, Japanese confectionery shops, Japanese haberdasher, and so on. Located in Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo, it is a 20-minute drive from Shinjuku Station. If you use trains, you can start your tour at JR Iidabashi Station, or at Tokyo metro’s Kagurazaka Station. I will pick you up at the station.One of the charms of Kagurazaka is the exploration in the back alleys.It is interesting to see traditional restaurants and ryokan lined up in a narrow winding road. TNot only traditional Japanese goods -such as Japanese porcelains and sandals- but also small items which adopt the cutting edge trend are sold.It is a nice place for hunting souvenirs.In addition to Japanese cuisine, you can enjoy cuisine coming from all over the world.There is also an aging beef’s restaurant which is popular nowadays.

 

My personal information

 

  I used to study at British Counsil’s school, so, I have visited Kagurazaka since a long time ago. I love walking. I sometimes walk from Iidabashi station to Kagurazaka 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 peropd internship at Japanese garden in San Diego. As for my personality, my friends say “You are a hard woker.” 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.

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.”.
