My name is Dustin and I would love to show you around Japan. I have been in Japan nearly a decade. Kyoto, Nara and Wakayama offer many opportunities to explore. From the temples and shrines of Kyoto to the lush forests of Wakayama and the deer filled parks of Nara.
I am from the United States, speak Japanese and have been to over 30 prefectures in Japan and love outdoor activities. I am excited to show visitors places in Japan that many people do not visit because they are out of the way or in the back of the guidebook.
