I live in Shizuoka prefecture where Mt Fuji is located. I've been raised in Shimada city where Ooi River flows. I have been a volunteer guide for many foreign visitors around my city.
I have an interest in traditional Japanese culture and like natural places as well as cultural heritage sites. Please enjoy the beautiful Japanese landscape with my tour!
