Tochigi_Ashikaga Flower Park

I am an English guide in charge of
Ashikaga Flower Park.


Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.


Ashikaga Flower Park
Ashikaga Flower Park has full of different types of flowers from season to season with more than 1.5 million visitors every year. There are 8 themes for 4 seasons in a year. The park is designing seasonal sense into various gardens, a typical one of those is WISTERIA which is the most famous flower in the park. Ashikaga Flower Park was listed in CNN’s “World’s Top 10 Tourism Destinations”. Wisteria, needless to say, violet or lilac color but there are Benifuji (rouge wisteria), Shirafuji (white wisteria) or Kibanafuji (yellow wisteria) which have delayed blooming time with each other. Visitors enjoy seeing different type of Wisterias from the middle of April to the end of May. It has become even more convenient to visit Ashikaga Flower Park by train because new station “Ashikaga Flower Park Station” opened on April 1st in 2018. Visitors can get to the park in 18 mins by car or bus from the Sano Fujioka IC on Tohoku Express Way and take Route 50 towards Maebashi/Ashikaga. Parking lot has also been expanded.















My personal information


  I like running and trekking(mountaineering). I run 5 days a week and about 11Km a day early in the morning. Then I try to run a little more than 200Km a month in an average. On the other hand, I do trekking or mountaineering in relatively low altitude mountains in Okutama and Okuchichibu with my colleagues of my former employer. Also, I climb the highest mountain in japan, Mt. Fuji, in a middle of July every year. As summer climb to Mt. Fuji has become so popular especially in the last couple of years, there are a lot of congestions on a narrow mountain trail. So, the sun would have arisen before we reached the summit.
I majored in Economics at Meiji University. And I have worked several Japanese and US origin IT companies since I graduated from the university. For totaling 9 years I had lived in the U.S. and the last 4 years I managed a company called, Citizen Systems America which is an IT arm of Citizen Watch Group, as President and CEO. I think I have a top tier capability of English communication especially in the areas of listening, reading, speaking, writing and presentation. I have a score of 965 points with TOEIC.
I have had experience of guiding several visitors and obtained reputation of “Good and detailed explanation of tour venues”, “Easier to understand because of graphics with written explanation of the venues”. I have some unique way of guiding small group of FIT guests by using PowerPoint presentation.
My guided guests have been basically FIT (Free Independent Tourists), therefore, I have been trying to be adaptive to the requests from the guest. This may be one of the reasons why I have obtained a high reputation as a good tour guide.


Guide Fee


Basically, I charge Jpy30,000 per day for the group of 5 to 6 persons. But I could do the guiding like half day Tokyo tour with the charge of Jpy3,000 per hour for up to 10 persons. I am flexible to the request of FIT guests.

I will e-mail my proposal to you if you consider to request my service.
