Meet your host, Shoto & Friends

Host on Airbnb since 2018
  • Identity verified
Hi I'm Shoto! I’m from Japan but lived in California for 5 years when I was a college student. After graduation, I moved to Myanmar and worked there for 2 and a half years. Then, I came back to Japan two years ago and started guiding people visiting Japan as I studied sociology and loved to share with you the historical and cultural differences between Japan and your country! I started offering this experience because I wanted you to get deeper insights into Himeji area and Japanese beauty.
