Hyogo_Himeji Castle

I am an English guide in charge of
Himeji Castle.


Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.


Himeji Castle is well known as a world cultural heritage site. The castle seems to be jumping into the sky. Also, one of the interesting places of this castle is that the gateways from several gates to the tower are variously devised to prevent intrusion from the enemy. Then, I want to explain these devises for you. The landscape overlooking from the tower is also fantastic. Arriving at Himeji station in approximately 50 minutes from Osaka by the special rapid train, Himeji castle can be seen right there. After visiting Himeji Castle, you can see various beautiful Japanese gardens in the adjacent Koko-en. If we extend our journey, I can also guide you to the Engyoji temple which became the location of the film of “last samurai.” The route is suitable for a half day to one day walking course.




My personal information


  Although I had a chance to go abroad sometimes on business, I could not speak English well at that time. Then I went out accompanied by a person who could speak English well. As I wanted to be able to speak directly with foreigners, I studied English and got the qualification of an interpreter. Even now I am not very good at English, but I somehow manage to continue the guide.
I hope to make sure that guests who came to Japan from a distance spend delightfully and can make good memories. After completing the guide work, I have a lot of reflection points, but I hope to have good memories with customers.
