Hi, I’m Maru


Hi, I’m Maru

I’ve lived in Tokyo for 26 years

I speak English, Mandarin, Japanese

I am a Tour guide


Hello. I was raised in several places, such as Tokyo, Yokohama, Kobe, Osaka, and Nagoya. After my professional sales experience for a business machinery company in Yokohama, I pursued an opportunity to teach in China. I worked as a Japanese teacher for foreigners in Shanghai. The longer I lived abroad, the more I came to appreciate the unique aspects of Japanese culture. So I started learning English and Chinese to become a bridge to help bring foreign visitors closer to Japanese culture. I would be honored to be your guide as you tour our historically rich country. I am looking forward to traveling to Japan with you
