Shibuya Fashion Week  

Under the wings of the official Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo, Shibuya hosts its very own fashion week from October 10th 2014 to October 19th. Famous for the fashionable youth hanging out in the Shibuya area, this special version of the Tokyo Fashion Week will be on edge! The theme of this year’s fall edition of Shibuya Fashion Week will be “A Shibuya Style, Just For Me”, inviting people to find themselves through fashion and promoting the real beauty of Shibuya (according to their website). What are some of the events during Shibuya Fashion Week?

What? Street Runway with music performed by BASSCAMP. Shibuya’s up-and-coming designers present their new styles for the season Spring 2015. This runway is open to the public, so if you’d like to know what the trends are next season, just drop by the runway in Bunkamura Street. Be sure to arrive early if you want to have a good spot.

What? 109 Halloween. THE temple of ‘gyaru’ (Japanese young girls with a very colourful and often gaudy style, find out more here), Shibuya’s 109, hosts a special Halloween Week from Oct 14th till 31st (so it’s actually two weeks!). Prepare yourself for a Disney-like experience, with spiders hanging from ceilings, pumpkins everywhere etc. etc., lots of Halloween goods and limited edition items. If you’re not Japanese sized (like myself..), buying clothes there will be difficult, but just walking around there people watching is already most of the fun!
When? Oct 14th-31st 2014 (according to 109’s opening times: 10:00-21:00)
Where? 109 Shibuya. If you get off at Shibuya station you can see the 109 building from the scramble crossing. Website: www.shibuya109.jp/en/

I live in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture. I have a license to teach in high schools and was admitted to the degree of Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language in the University of Birmingham. Until 2015 I had been teaching English at public high schools in Kanagawa for 37 years. During that time, I had some experience of guiding students from overseas through sister-school relationship around Tokyo and Kanagawa. Therefore, I had good command of English with the TOEIC score of 935. As for a tour guide experience I earned the certificate of National Government Licensed Guide-Interpreter in English and since then I have guided tourists to the popular sites around Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura and Yokosuka. My guiding focuses on introducing not only Japanese historical and cultural backgrounds but also giving tourists some tips to travel Japan only by themselves, such as how to use trains and subways, find good restaurants, reserve tickets, buy survenier, and speak basic Japanese. In addition, my tour includes opportunities to experience Japanese culture like Zen meditation, ninja performance, visiting anime's location sites based on tourists' request. Besides, by means of my hobbies of writing English Haiku and Waka (traditional Japanese poems) and performing Rakugo (traditional Japanese funny story telling) in English, I can surely entertain tourists during the tour. My moto as a tour guide is let the tourists have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Japan with my profound, intelligible and interestiog guiding.

My name is Grant I lived more than 10 years in Japan. I graduated University and translation school in Tokyo. I am fluent in Japanese. I have a degree in Asian studies and have expert-level knowledge of Japanese culture and history. I have memorized the JR rail system across all of Japan, I use the same train timetable calculators as the station staff, and I have experience using bullet train passes that are exclusive to foreign visitors. I can optimally navigate the Tokyo underground and maximize value from a Tokyo metro pass and also understand Tokyo above ground which will allow for seamless transitions between different metro stations and landmarks with minimal backtracking. *There will be a price revision at the end of June* My tour fee is Half-Day Tour: 30,000yen for 1-5hours Full-Day Tour: 50,000yen for 5-12hours The time transiting to and from your hotel for pick up or drop off within Tokyo 23wards does not count towards the time. I am also able to guide historical sites and cities such as Kyoto, Kanazawa, Nikko, and Kamakura on request if you pay my rail fare. If your group is not a tour company and you simply ask me kindly for a 10,000yen discount and I will reduce the price of your tour until the end of June.

I’m so excited to have a chance to show you around my favorite spots in Kanagawa prefecture. I was born in Kanagawa. I spent my whole school life, including university, here in Kanagawa. I worked as a high school English teacher here for 40 years. I love Kanagawa so much. We have many interesting tourist spots, like Hakone, Kamakura, Enoshima and Yokohama. I got my tour guide license in English in 2009. I am still an English teacher. To give an interesting and impressive lesson to young high school students, I’ve learnt and gathered many kinds of information. I also have a license to teach social studies, so I have a wide range of knowledge about Japanese culture and history. I’m sure to provide you an interesting tour.
