“Originally from Osaka, I studied at Hendon College in London and worked as an administrative assistant for various foreign companies in Japan for over 40 years. In 2008 I became an officially licensed tour guide and have been guiding visitors from all over the world, including the players of the Manchester United Football Club! I am an expert on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes and the old Nakasendo highway – a transportation route established nearly 400 years ago.

I enjoy travelling, mountaineering, tea ceremony and cooking. My travel experiences include walking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, trekking the Camino de Santiago in Spain, climbing Mount Roraima in the Guiana Highlands in Venezuela、walking in jungles in Rwanda to see mountain gorillas and visiting Madagascar to see lemurs and the massive baobab trees.”

One of my favourite apects of Japanese culture is the spirit of ‘ichigo-ichie’ (to cherish every encounter as though it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience).I love guiding visitors to Japan, meeting different people and sharing stories and experiences.
