Our Tour Guides
Japan has a well-earned reputation as being a clean, safe, and welcoming travel destination. However, most locals only speak Japanese. To ensure you have a smooth stay, we will assign an interpreter-guide to accompany you. In addition to English-speaking guides, we also have access to speakers of all major languages through our network.
Our company's representative, Toshi, is an English interpreter-guide and a member of the Japan Federation of Tourist Guides (JFG). This government-certified organization has over 1,000 professional tour guide members, including speakers of English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Korean, and Thai.
An avid golfer for over 34 years (handicap of 13), Toshi understands the ingredients of an enjoyable golf vacation. He also has extensive experience in traveling and playing golf abroad.
Toshi's love of travel began in his college days. Since then, he has visited almost every part of Japan from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south by airplane, train, car, motorcycle, and bicycle.
A veteran traveler, he has visited Europe, America, Oceania, Asia, and North Africa on over 200 business trips during his 30-year career as a trading company employee. Furthermore, he has lived abroad with five years in Milan, Italy, and one year in California, USA.
Toshi loves keeping active. In addition to golf, he has practiced the martial art Shorinji Kempo and has a first-dan blackbelt.
