Hello, I am Chiaki. I have been living in the central Tokyo area for more than 30 years with my family. I love history, art, architecture and dining, and I am pleased to share my expertise and knowledge as a local and professional. While I was in the UK, I started to look at Japan as an outsider. I found how interesting and attractive Japanese culture is, including its history, art, cuisine, etc, which has made me a guide-interpreter.
Tokyo is one of the world's biggest cities with an interesting mix of tradition and innovation, skyscrapers and gardens, artworks and technology, and so on.

Hey there! My name is John and I am here to show you around Japan! Tourist spots are always good, enjoy the famous sights of Kamakura and Shonan, but how about the less available spots off the over-saturated tourist path - places too difficult reach or simply hidden from your travelling compass.
Originally from Perth, Western Australia, I have lived in Japan for 14 years including 2-years as a student and the rest working and travelling the country. A Japanese translator/interpreter by trade, I have 5-years of experience as a tour guide and assure that my tours will be thoroughly enjoyed!
