Hello, I'm May, my nickname in English. I have worked as a tour guide and a tour planner since 2008.
What has brought you to Japan? It, of course, differs forom person to person. So I would like to provide you not only with tours with highlights of Kansai region but also with ones personalized to suit your interests and preferences. With four clear-cut seasons and the one-month rainy season between the mid June and July in Japan, the best places to hit are changed, which results in making me always busy updating information on every site plus improving my sense of humor :-), phew---!
