I first developed a crush on Japan because of an amazing J-Rock (Japanese Rock Band). My love for J-Rock inspired me to learn more about Japan and to learn Japanese. That was 20 years ago, and my love for Japan is stronger than ever. I moved to Japan in 2005 to study Japanese language, culture, and history. Of course, I spent most of my free time exploring Japan as much as possible and I realized that each part of Japan has its own unique charms - I can never get enough of this amazing country!
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"If you are planning to travel to Japan, I can help you to make a tailor-made itinerary for any parts of Japan. Let me know you interests places to visit/ activities you wish to do / experience you wish to have and I will be more than happy to customize an itinerary to match with what you are looking for. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"I love to travel because it opens many doors in terms of meeting new people with different cultures, having different experiences that you cannot find in daily life and allows you to develop new (and sometimes surprising) points of view just by being in different places. I enjoy taking the time to plan each trip - I began working in travel 6 years ago, and knowing that I help my travelers have amazing adventures is what I enjoy the most. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I am more of a nature person, so the most memorable trip for me is the beautiful scenery of the Japanese countryside during Autumn. Therefore, my trip to Kyushu in Japan was quite special and memorable. People in Kyushu are super helpful especially in Nagasaki and beautiful Koyo scenery (Autumn Foliage) in Kurokawa Onsen in Kumamoto province is so far the best highlights for me. "
