I was born in Osaka and spent my life there until I graduated from university. Thereafter, I moved from Osaka to Yokohama to find employment in the City of Yokohama, and worked there as a city official for more than 30 years. In the City of Yokohama, I was mainly in charge of city planning and international exchange programs with foreign cities, both of which were instrumental for me to expand perspective to know Japan. Now, after nearly ten years' guide experience, I still continue the efforts to become a good guide.
I think the guide do not have sufficient knowledge on the place we are visiting and also the route. It is a waste of my time and should not be allowed to guide to places where he is not familiar. If he need to read the information given at the place of interest, I also can read and I don't need his service. TQ
Thank you for your review about our two days tour of Nagano. I was careless about skipping the information of Ueda castle to you. It is a long story, but I should have done. And one more, I and my driver feel deeply sorry for being delayed in arriving at the hotel because of making wrong choice of the route on the way back to the hotel.
