As a university student I majored in Japanese history and have lived in Japan for 39 years since graduating. During that time, I have taught Japanese history at an international school and have often led small groups on tours around Tokyo, Kamakura, Nikko, Kyoto, Himeji and other off the beaten path locations.
I enjoy explaining the culture and history of my adopted country to visitors who want to discover, experience, and learn about Japan at a deeper level.

cemeteries, and many of the historically and politically important
places. Of particular interest to us was his ability to place the sites
