Welcome to my page

I am an English guide

in charge of Ueno Park & Ameyoko Shopping Street .

 

Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

 

Ueno Park & Ameyoko Shopping Street: This 150 year-old park is recommended for any overseas traveler looking to refresh but has only an half day or so before the departure. With a 12 minute-JR ride from Tokyo Station you can stroll through the forest and among museums and zoo of Ueno Park. You will also experience traditional cultures such as small-scaled Kyoto’s Kiyomizu Temple, Nikko’s Toshogu and shrines which were constructed in the 17th century by Shogunate to entertain townspeople. You also can enjoy Japanese meals in a traditional restaurant house. The entire site(540,000 m2) had been the site of Kaneiji Temple, now reduced to 1/10 in size which we visit. At the west end there is a small lake with many lotus plants. 200m away from there is Ameyoko, a 70 year-old street(500m long) to enjoy food, souvenirs and fashion items sold at very reasonable price.

My personal information

 

  For the first 3 years since I became a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter in 2012, I worked as an interpreter in business scene because of my business experiences in oil& chemical import and trading and international business administration for a silicon wafer manufacturing corporation. I worked in NYC for a total of 8 years and then 2 years in Singapore. Through these global experiences I enjoyed both different cultures and friendships with a lot people. Business and conference organizanizers , after business engagement , started to ask me for conducting attendees short tours before their departure. I have started to enjoy guiding because it helps boost cultural exchanges. In addition guiding requires walking which helps improve my health as well. I hope you enjoy cultural exchange with Japanese through my guiding tour.
