I am happy to introduce myself to you.
My name is Katsuko and I live in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan.
I have been engaged in tourism promotion as a tourist guide. I have a keen interest in cross-cultural communication. I got first interested in foreign countries and different peoples when the 1952 Summer Olympic Games were held in Helsinki, Finland. I have since studied English and had interest in events and natural phenomena in foreign countries. I studied cultural anthropology and international politics because I believe these will be useful when I guide foreign guests.
I am looking forward to guiding you soon!
