|Welcome to my page
I am an English guide
in charge of Ueno.
|Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.|
Ueno is in the north of Akihabara, and, Shinkansen bullet train stops at this station, so, it is a Sight-seeing spot where Japanese people often visit for the purpose of Ueno Park with national museums and the zoo, or shopping at Ameya Yokocho which started as the black market in the postwar era. A Buddhist monk Tenkai was a mentor for the Shogun (a general commander), Tokugawa Ieyasu, his son Hidetada, and his grandson Iemitsu. Tenkai established Kaneiji temple at Ueno for Edo Castle’s guard in 1625. And, there are many shrines and temples such as Kiyomizu-Kannondo, Bentendo which stands in Shinobazu pond, and so on. Located in Taito-ku, Tokyo, it is a 30-minute drive from Shinjuku Station. If you use a train, you can start from JR or Tokyo Metro’s Ueno station. I will pick you up at the station. The Tokyo National Museum is the largest museum in Japan and holds 117,000 works including 89 national treasures. Buddhist statues, armors, Ukiyo-e … all collections are first-class items. Ameya Yokocho, which is under the elevated Yamanote line between Okachimachi Station and Ueno Station, sells fish, sweets, clothes etc. at a shopping street with about 400 stores. It is around 500 meters long. There are some shops whose clerk sells items at a greatly reduced price with a showy performance. It draws more customers. They have many reasonable and good taverns underneath the elevated railway tracks.
|My personal information|
I used to work in Ueno Park, so, it has been my favorite place since a long time ago. I love walking. I sometimes walk from Ueno station to Nippori station via Yanaka. 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 say, “Pick out the one that you think it is the best.”.
