Hi, my name is “Nao”.
As I worked for an international trading company and visited many foreign countries, I have a good command of English and acquire a cosmopolitan way of thinking. I lived in Illinois, U.S.A. for one year when I was a student. While serving to my company, I lived in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia for 7 years as a company representative. I also made business trips to more than 10 overseas countries such as China, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, New Zealand and so on.
I like traveling very much and visiting sight-seeing spots, cultural heritage sites, and chatting and eating with local people.
Therefore, I would like foreign travelers to enjoy visiting sightseeing spots and historical and cultural heritage sites in Japan and looking across the broad panorama of modern Tokyo. I am delighted to help travelers enjoy Japanese delicacies and shopping traditional souvenirs.
I am determined to provide excitement and unforgettable experiences to foreign travelers. let’s enjoy travel with me.
In 2022 I can accept your guide request 1 week prior to travel date.
We had an enjoyable, informative fun day with Noa. His English is excellent. He is very professional and our day was well planned. With thanks Linda and Christine.
Dear Linda san and Christine san I have never experienced such an enjoyable and funny tour with you. I will keep this tour in my mind as a good memory. Thank you for choosing my tour. Nao
We toured with Nao for two days. He was very accommodating to our needs and was able to make changes to our tour on the spot, even on the one rainy day we had. He planned meaningful experiences and was excellent at explaining history and traditions. Highly recommend a tour with Nao-san!
Dear Megan san Thank you very much for choosing my tour and touring with me. I enjoyed very much travelling with you and felt warm and close family tie with your parents and other family members. I enjoyed photos of your father when he was a child with his mother and family history. Please continue to have a pleasant journey to Kyushu and other destinations. Cheers! Mata aimashoo ! ! Nao
Nao San was our guide for a one-day trip from Tokyo to Mt Fuji. I knew that we needed to take multiple trains and bus to get this tour done. I was so glad that we booked Nao San. He was very organized and detailed oriented. He customized, planned and communicated every little detail of our tours as we requested. He even did a pre-visit to our hotel so that he could orientate and be prepared for our tour. Nao San is continuously checking times, and making sure that the trip is run efficiently. He walks around with printed iternary, bus and train timetables etc. He was very kind, friendly and funny. He integrated with ease with my family. I will highly recommend Nao San as a tour guide, especially if you need a highly organised and prepared guide.
Dear Shaila san Thank you very much for your comment on my tour to Mt Fuji. Your comment encourages me to conduct future tours better than before and improve it further in the future. Thank you for your comment. One thing I regret during my tour is Mt Fuji was covered with cloud and we could not see beautiful symmetrical cone shape. Therefore, I will send you photos of Mt Fuji when I visit there again on November 23. I hope it will be fine without cloud. Thanks Nao
I cannot stress enough how perfect a guide Nao was, not only was he an excellent communicator before the tour (Some initially planned stuff had to be changed, and Nao let us know well in advance, and had alternatives already in mind which were communicated and agreed to) Also during the tour, where I admittedly did not know what to expect, as I had never really done this before. Nao did not just walk us around Tokyo, but along the way explained the history, and significance of each site we were seeing, down to simple things like teaching us how to properly offer a prayer at a temple (If we wanted to) while explaining the reasoning behind some of the practices. But even outside of the tour itself, Nao struck us both as just a good guy, who was affable, and just someone it was very easy to spend a day with and chat informally with while on trains between sites we were seeing about our lives and families. It was a genuine pleasure!! I cannot envision a more perfect day than the one we had with Nao, and cannot recommend him highly enough!
Dear Shawna san Thank you so much for your comment on my tour. I enjoyed the tour with you very much. I was wondering if you had sore feet after long walking around in Tokyo, especially we were on the way to the Imperial palace because I took a wrong way to there and have you walked more than necessary. But, I could feel releve that you could enjoy my tour. If you have a chance, please visit Japan again in the future. Thanks Nao
