About me:

Hi! My name is Toru. I am a certified tour guide in Japan. I have lived in the United States for 11 years and came back 3 years ago. I am a thoughtful, easy-going person who knows how to entertain guests with a great sense of humor and knowledge of Japanese culture.

My main guiding area is Aomori prefecture (northern tip of the main island).
Aomori is well known for its summer festival called "Nebuta". At this festival, massive lantern floats illustrating various forms are paraded through the streets of Aomori city. Taiko drummers, flute musicians and Nebuta dancers go along with the floats enhancing the livelihood of the festival.


Besides the festival, Aomori has many things to offer such as cherry blossoms at Hirosaki castle, Jormon ruins, Oirase gorge and many more. Also, Aomori is famous for its delicious apples and abundance of seafood.


Currently I live in Aomori prefecture but I was born and raised in Osaka city. Therefore, I am familiar with Kansai region (Western part of Japan), especially Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe. There are so many old temples, shrines, and other historically significant structures in this region. I know where to go, what to see and eat food only known to the locals.

I can accommodate your plan to exceed your special needs. Please feel free to contact me at toru90@hotmail.com. I will be able to provide you a memorable trip during your stay in Japan.
