Hello! I'm Hiroyo.
I was born and brought up in Shizuoka. After living in Tokyo and in England to attend a university and to work, eventually I came back to Shizuoka. I have been living here with my family including my two children, for many years. I’m now enjoying working as a licensed tour guide in Shizuoka.
I love classic music, especially piano music. I don’t think I’m not a good singer, but I’m sometimes called a “sing a song ”guide. I will be always happy to welcome you!
I also have been interested in Japanese traditional culture. I used to be in a Kendo(Japanese fencing) club and a Japanese flower arrangement club when I was a student. I got a certificate as a Japanese tea instructor as well and I’ve had a lot of opportunities to be a guide for many guests including tea-lovers coming from overseas. It would be my great pleasure to help you find out more about Japanese culture!
