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---!

Hello, I'm glad you found me! I write and take photos for a local tourism website (mostly in Japanese). I also translate articles and work for foreign entrepreneurs who want to do business and live in Japan. I work as a freelancer so my schedule is flexible if you are wondering. Meeting new people and talking about each other's culture is exciting! That's one of the main reasons why I considered getting a guide license and here I am. Hope to hear from you soon!

***Sorry I'm not currently available. I'll let you know when I am.***
I was a movie and TV subtitle translator when I lived in Tokyo for more than 20 years. After moving to Kyoto in 2012, I became more and more interested in our own history and culture again, took the license and became a certified guide.
Another reason I decided to become a tour guide was the 2011 big earthquakes and tsunami that hit my hometown in northern Japan. A lot of people from all over the world came there to help. I really thanked them and enjoyed working with them. I really enjoyed helping them communicate w
