Hi! My name is Kai Tokyonaga.
I've been growing up in Japan and now working for several universities as an English lecturer. Other than English education, I'm really into history and majored in it in my undergraduate. I sometimes teach Japanese history to non-Japanese students in English.

In my experience, not only visiting sites, I'll also give you an explanation by using tailor-made presentation with interesting quizzes and historic materials on my tablet.

In addition, I'm friendly and fluent speaker of English. I've studied and worked in English speaking countries for more than 3 years in total. I also offer history tour in Asakusa, so you can choose whichever tour depending on your convenience and interests.

You are free to ask any questions about Japan during my tour!!

Where you'll be

●Zojoji Temple
Zojoji boasts huge precinct with serene atmosphere. A big front gate, thousand care guardian deities, and Tokyo Tower behind the temple are all great photogenic spots.

●Atago Shrine
Built in 1603, Atago Shrine stands at the highest hill in Tokyo. The attraction of this shrine is its steps called "steps for success" whose angle is almost 40 degrees.
