Welcome to my page

I am an English guide

in charge of Shizuoka Party Night.

 

My proposal

 

  55 yrs old, Male, High School English teacher (32 years career) , assistant for exchange students from and to abroad. I have been guiding more than 10 years. Groups vary from individuals to more than 30 people. My personal interests are traveling abroad, 30 U.S cities including Hawaii and Guam Island, Mexico (10 cities), Spain (10 cities), Italy (10 cities), Great Britain (20 cities), Ireland (2 cities), France (Paris), Australia (Sydney and Perth :10 times), Thailand (3 cities) and Taiwan (Taipei). My sales point is to be guided abroad as well as guide in Japan. I like watching sports, reading, doing physical exercises and raising pets (a land turtle, parrots, a rabbit and tropical fresh water fish).

 

My personal information I would like to tell you

 

I have a strong sense of resonsibility and accuracy on time. I always try to make a plan with care not too busy or not to be for the next destination. I never forget the word “cost effifiency” to serve every guest and to try to give extra value more than what I earn from guests. As I am also a traveler, I try hard to pay attention to every guest so that they can spend their time meaningfully in the limited time. I endeavor to be fully prepared for all the guests’ requests.

 

Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

 

Sightseeing spot

 

静岡地酒*Shizuoka Party Night (Drinking & Local Gourmet Tour !)
*Small group tour for drinking local SAKE (rice wine) at IZAKAYA (local restaurant serving fine dishes and a lot of bevarages) or bar.
*At IZAKAYA and restaurants serving local dishes within 10 minutes’ walk from JR Shizuoka station.

*At RYO-GAE-CHO located in central Shizuoka, a lot of people gather at night. You can enjoy drinking all through the night very safely!
*Very rare sea food such as “cherry-pink shrimp” and “baby sardine” are served as SASHIMI which is not common in other areas all over Japan. A local food ingredient called “KURO-HANPEN”, which is a dumpling made from sardine mince in a half round shape, is served in a pot dish called “O-DEN” or deep dried dish. This is one of the soul foods for local people in Shizuoka. Among others, a lot of sea food such as locally grown eel, tuna, bonito as well as riches of the soil like taro potato and Japanese horseradish are found almost in every local dish restaurant. One of the prides of Shizuoka is that there is no food ingredients to be prepared in Shizuoka.
*There are a variety of local SAKE (rice wine), locally brewed beer and produced soda pops as well.

静岡おでん*Shizuoka is benefited by mild weather all the year round, with mountains (on the northen part), rivers and lakes. It also faces the Pacific Ocean, so, a variety of food and ingredients are available. The purpose of this tour is to communicate with local people enjoying local liquors and dishes loved by local residents. It is my pleasure if exchanging opinions with them in the limited hours could become a chance to come back here in Shizuoka. I would be an interpreter for you if you want.
