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.

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.

Hi, I am Ryoko, a Oyama Area Licensed Guide Interpreter. Oyama is located in western place in Kanagawa and known as a sacred tourist spot for Edo commoners. Based on my experience working for an international company, I try to respect and have a dialogue with people from various cultures. I offer ideas for visiting spots together, eating, learning, and experiencing Japanese life in Isehara, as well as in the surrounding Kanagawa, and Tokyo area, which are difficult for foreign tourists to enter alone. Also, since I love books so much that I run a reading community in Isehara, we can consider plans that tie in with literature and legends. •Japanese History •Religions(Majored in Islamic culture at university) •Love to find good restaurants &cafe •literature

Its evolution is particularly notable for how it embraced international trade and modernization. Minato Mirai district is a large urban development.

Yokohama was better than I expected because of Kaneo

Kaneo-San was very professional, resourceful and knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. He helped us select some of the most interesting and beautiful places to see in Yokohama, one of them was the Sankeien Garden. It is a must see garden with beautiful ponds, different species of cherry blossom trees, historical houses representing different periods in Japan brought from different parts of Japan such as old farm houses, tea ceremonial house and the oldest temple constructed in 1400s brought in from Kyoto.. it is an open air museum ! Last but not least, Kaneo-San went out of his way to help my sister to pick up a purchase she has made from the Red Brick Warehouse! He was so flexible with the itinerary and adjusted it based on the weather. We had such a good time with Kaneo-San and grateful for his guiding. We definitely will recommend him to anyone who wants a competent, kind and reliable guide to show them Yokohama.

Widdy H.

Thank you for sending a really good review. I hope the leather case your sister bought will be a good reminder of this tour.

This man does his homework

My wife and I booked with Ken at Yokohama pre-cruise and he came prepared with notebook in hand. Despite our impulsive changes on the fly he knew how to compensate venues and was very patient every step of the way. His English was totally understandable as well.

Norman H.

Thank you very much for your wonderful remarks. I hope you found Yokohama is an attractive city where tells you the history of Japan's modernization from the Edo period to the current, and toward the future. Because the city was one of the ports that started trading with other countries from the end of the Edo period, it retains multi-cultural features, Japanese, Western and Chinese as you eye witnessed. Although it was a full-day tour, it was not enough for me to introduce the charms of the city. I am looking forward to having you here again!
