I am an English guide

in charge of Mt. Fuji.

 

Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

 

Mt. Fuji

Mt. Fuji is the highest (3776 m) and most celebrated mountain in Japan. It is the dormant volcano, but there are eruptions on the record. The last eruption occurred in 1707.
The name is said to be Ainu origin, meaning “everlasting life.” The crater is about 200 meters deep and 540 meters om diameter. Its symmetrically beautiful cone capped with snow a favorite Japanese artistic theme, a subject of poets and artists. Especially notable are Hokusai’s color prints, Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji.
It also has a religious significance. And tens of thousands of pilgrims climb to the shrine on the summit every summer. North of Fuji are the scenic Five Lakes, forms by streams that were dammed by ash and lave from the volcano.

 

My personal information

 

  I have 30 years’ experience of guiding in English.
My favorite guiding spots are Kamakura, Yokohama Bay Area, Sankeien garden, Hakone, Manazuru Peninsula, Atami, Ito, Nikko, Suwako Lake, Suwa Shrine in Nagano Prefecture.
While I was teaching at Kanagawa Prefectural College for Foreign Studies, I opened two voluntary courses to improve student’s English proficiency: “English Guide” and “Language Program in Canada”. In the former, I lectured on the history of Kamakura, and well-known temples and shrines. They practiced presentations and they guided visitors from other countries. These experiences contributed much to enhance their English.
Presently, I have two classes for retired teachers and wives for voluntary “English Guide”.
