*About Tourism and Travel

So far I guided people from more than 20 different nations, to destinations all over Japan, from Okinawa to Hokkaido, for 4 years. I also give lectures on inbound tourism at schools, universities, and tourism events, to share the idea of `TRAVEL LOCALLY’. And I love traveling myself.

Japan is safe, friendly, and mysterious, with lots of attractions yet unknown.

Most people, when they visit Japan for the first time, go to big cities like Tokyo or Osaka, Kyoto, to see cool vibrant cities and traditional temples and garden. That’s one thing you can enjoy.

Another thing I recommend is, to tranquil local villages, port towns, or maybe to little islands or peninsulas, where good old lifestyles remain, there’ll be a fresh surprise.

Japan is a country of wonder.

Nearly 70 percent of the land is mountain (you can feel that when you travel by shinkansen bullet train, for there’re many long tunnels! ) surrounded by beautful ocean, which bring us good Sashimi, Sushi, and other fresh cuisine.

From north to south, climate is different, food are different (even sake or soy sauce differs so much !), and people are so different.

For people who love to eat, Japan is an absolute paradise.

Now one thing I am very sure about Japan is it’s worth visiting, because it’s worth living.

So please visit !
