Welcome to my page

I am an English guide

in charge of Atami.

 

My proposal

 

  I would like to guide Atami, Hakone, Fuji, Shizuoka and the area in the vicinity, depending on the requests of guests. The area is easily accessible from Tokyo and on the route from the metropolis to Kyoto area.

 

My personal information I would like to tell you

 

  I am a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter in Atami, Shizuoka. I also have a certificate of Itinerary Control Manager.
I grew up in Yokohama, spent 1 year as a high school exchange student in the US, went to college and lived/worked in Tokyo before coming to this beautiful onsen resort. I was engaged in international exchange and cultural affairs at the city administration office for 9 years and obtained a guide license in 2016.
Atami is conveniently located at the foot of the Hakone mountains, and the base of the Izu Peninsula. It is also close to Mt. Fuji and the Shimizu Port in Shizuoka. I am excited to show people around beautiful places that I love. After becoming a guide, I met with guests from various backgrounds, and I feel grateful once again, for my experience to be exposed to different cultures in my youth.

 

Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

 

Sightseeing spot

 

十国峠2View of Mt. Fuji from the Jukkoku Pass, MOA Museum of Art and Japanese cultural experience, a former historic villa of Kiunkaku, a dance theater of geisha (Geigi Kemban), Atami Castle and samurai museum, a country house, interior of which was designed by Bruno Taut…There are other charms to offer in this area, too, such as small museums, shrines of long history, and rustic fishing ports. I can guide guests not only based on the travel agents’ itineraries, but also I can satisfy customers on the spot catering to their needs and interests.

熱海起雲閣

Atami has been known for its onsen since the 5th century and it is a place whre the first Shogun (head of samurai) built and stored his strength before establishing his government. The hot spring was loved and patronized by many shoguns of the Edo government, and it is the most famous onsen resort in Japan. The city prospered during Meiji and Taisho era as area of holiday homes among celebrities, which we can visit today as tourist sites.
