Hi, I am Yoshie. I am a national government licensed English speaking Guide. I used to work for multinational financial companies and served as an interpreter for several years and travelled around Japan with coworkers. I love plants, nature, travelling as well as finding out good places to eat! I am also a communicative person.
After lived in Tokyo for some decades, now I live in my home town, Fukui where you can have a great experience of Zen buddhism in the head temple of the Soto Zen sect, Eiheiji which was founded in 1244. There is also a thrilling sightseeing spot named Tojinbo Cliffs which are as high as 25 meters extending a peninsula. For those who are in interested in dinosaurs, there is one of the three world's largest dinosaur museums.
I have been travelling Kanazawa since my high school age so I know well about the town to show you around as well as Takayama, Shirakawago, Kyoto and other neighbors of Fukui.
I am excited to meet you and coordinate what you are really interested in to make you the happiest memories in Japan.
I look forward to guiding you soon!
Yoshie met us at the Kanazawa train station and took us to our hotel. She helped us make a shinkansen reservation for all my upcoming trips in Kanazawa, Takayama, Nagano and Shirakawago area. She is such a pleasure to work with. She took us around with public transportation. I traveled with my 9 and 7 years old and they didn't feel it was too much walking. Yoshie timed everything very well. I highly recommend her for those who are looking for a private guide around Kanazawa, Nagano, Takayama and Shirakawago area
Thank you so much for your kind review, Venny! I also had a great time talking to you and being with your family while we were on the tour. You are such a lovely person! During your 5 nights stay in Kanazawa, we did so many day-trips and one of the highlights was to see Snow Monkeys in Nagano. I am truly glad that your children could see dozens of snow monkeys playing in the mountain and enjoying in Onsen (hot spring) after a long walk of the trail. We had an experience of having a traditional Japanese cuisine in Kanazawa and a BBQ in Takayama and taking lots of pictures at every attractions. Those will be my precious memories. I hope you can come back to Japan to see more beautiful places. Yoshie
