About

Hi, my name is Hiro

I am brought up in the city near Osaka since three years old, where I had education and was married, then I was transferred my office to Tokyo.

I came back to my home town in Osaka when I was retired at 60. Being an English tour guide was a kind of dream, so I studied very hard to get a license after retirement without having any job after that.

It took almost six years in the end to pass the Tour guide examination. But I think I could acquire enough knowledge about the things Japanese, and English language.

My selling point is that I can compare well Japanese culture and Western culture. Also I lived in foreign countries for several years in Los Angeles and London, I can share my experiences with you.

I recommend you to visit many World Heritage sites and others in Kyoto, Nara, Osaka and Kobe, and enjoy Japan’s beauty and uniqueness with me.

I am looking forward to seeing you at some point in our life. Buddhism says meeting a certain person in our life is already destined before our birth.

Thank you
