Ome city -discover in the original Japan

Experience ancient Japan with well-preserved buildings and sights from the 19th and 20th centuries. Located on the outskirts of Tokyo, Ome is easily accessible from Tokyo in an hour.

Program items:
    • Visit to a typical Japanese wooden house
    • Walk through a small bamboo forest
    • Visit a magnificent old temple (Baiganji) and an Inari shrine
    • Enter an original Shinkansen of the first generation (1960s)
    • Break in a cozy café in a traditional Japanese wooden house
    • Visit to the museum with Japanese retro articles (1950s)
    • Check out local souvenir shops

Welcome to Tokyo!
I am happy to show you our beautiful area, where the old Japanese culture has been well preserved and can be experienced. I am married to a Japanese woman and live on the outskirts of Tokyo at the Chichibu-Tama-Kai National Park. This gives me a deep insight into everyday Japanese life and I know the country and its cultural nuances very well.
As a travel nature I like to travel often and have visited numerous countries. I have been to Japan regularly since 2007 and know almost all of the 47 prefectures.
As a tour guide, I travel all over Japan and like to discover differences and similarities in (Japanese) (everyday) culture. I am also fascinated by the exchange with different people and groups.
I grew up in Switzerland and speak fluent Japanese, German, French and English.
