Specialties and Hobbies
- Like reading, listening to music (big Mozart’s fan!) and playing the piano.
- Like watching movies and American TV dramas from the latest ones to classics such as “Little house on the Prairie”
- Love town walking and hiking. Wish to climb Hyaku Meizan, one hundred top mountains of Japan, someday! (at least some of them…)
In Japan with distinct four seasons and long history, there are countless attractions and charms I would like to introduce to visitors from all over the world. Tokyo is vast and filled with so many places to see! From the hottest hangouts in town to the historical neighborhoods, I would like to help you explore the absolute “must-sees”. With my heartfelt welcome, I look forward to meeting you soon.
