What you'll do

I have a bitter memory in France. Although I learned French as the second language at my college I could not use it at all when I visited France a long time ago. My pronunciation could not make the French people understand at all. Since then, I have totally lost my confidence and motivation to speak French and I totally forgot French. I always think if I had made the first French person understand my French, I would have enjoyed my trip more. I created this tour based on my experiences as a professional tour guide and a Japanese language teacher. This tour starts with a “survival Japanese lesson” which includes Japanese alphabets & pronunciation, useful words & expressions, and how to make use of Google Translation for yourself. The history of Kappabashi Kitchen street and Japanese cooking will be explained in English. Then, we go out for an adventure walking tour in the famous Kappabashi Kitchen Street. Each person gets a mission to interact with some Japanese people using the Japanese you've just learned. We will meet again for lunch and for the feedback about each one's missionat at a local restaurant or the classroom. I am sure that your stay in Japan gets more enjoyable.

Yoko

I am a national government licensed tour guide specializing in Asakusa, the heart of old Tokyo. This area is one of the most well known and popular tourist destinations and filled with nostalgic Japanese cultures of ordinary people lived in old Tokyo. Before, I used to work as a certified Japanese teacher in Japan and in the US. I learned "teaching language is teaching its culture." So as a tour guide, I would like to introduce not only the fact but also its background stories as much as possible. Having lived in Europe and the US for 18 years with my family, I was deeply touched by how friendly and kind the locals were. I realized how important it was to interact with locals since we were able to enjoy many memorable experiences. These nice experiences made me become a tour guide. I wish my guest unforgettable wonderful memories
