Hello !!! I'm a government certified tour guide. I'm from Kyoto. I'm positive, active and full of curiosity with a sense of humor. I majored in the international commerce in the university and I worked for an electronics company as a sales person. During my career, I had a chance to live in Europe and I learned and experienced different cultures and various values, which helped me to communicate and deal with non-Japanese people more smoothly.
I like travelling (visited more than 40 countries) and watching sports (baseball, football and rugby) as well as going for drinking and Karaoke !
Let's explore Japan with me !!
Looking forward to seeing you soon !!!
Soy Shigeki. Soy de Kioto que fue la capital de Japón por mas de mil años.
Soy positivo, activo, curioso y tengo mucho sentido de humor. Aprendí el comercio en la universidad y trabajaba como vendedor en una compañia electrónica. En mi carrera, tuve oportunidades de vivir en Europa y aprendí y experimenté culturas y valores distintos que me ayudaron a comunicarme fácilmente y a tratar con gente de todo el mundo.
A mí me encantaría viajar no solo por Japón sino también por todo el mundo. He conocido más de 40 países. Me gusta el deporte, ver partidos de béisbol, futbol y rugby así como salir a tomar unas cervezas y Karaoke.
¡Ven a explorar Japón conmigo!
¡Espero verte pronto!
