1 Riding Sagano Romantic Train from Saga to Kameoka.
2 Hozugawa-kudari, once on the boat, you will enjoy a 16 kilometer, two hour journey from Kameoka to Arashiyama.

Let me know when you arrive at Kyoto Station, I will pick you up to the accommodations. If you need any further help, please contact me by e-mail. For example, if you are interested in Tea ceremony or traditional Martial arts (Iai), I'll arrange a chance to see them for you. (Additional charges are needed.)
I speak Japanese, Korean and a little bit English. To my regret I can't speak Chinese or French. I will be very grateful if you speak slowly when you call me or email me.

I'm 65 years old, old enough to be wise. I wish I were. I love to meet guests from all over the world. Last year I visited Germany and Austria for the first time in my life. It's the best thing can be in my life. I met so many awesome people there. I would like to help my guests have good days in Japan too.
I'm fond of reading books. A.J. Cronin and James Hilton are ones of my favourite writers. I've read "Goodbye Mr. Chips (チップス先生さようなら)" and "Adventures in Two Worlds (人生の途上にて)" many times.
Another hobby is playing Go. Do you know Go? It's a game similar to chess. Although having been disappointed when AlphaGo won 4-1 against the legendary Lee Sedol, the top Go player in the world, it's fun to play Go. Let's enjoy playing Go.
My favourite motto is "Tomorrow is another day" and I'm proud of having a few bosom friends like Anne (of green gables). I'd like to have many friends around the world. This October, I visit Europe again. I stay in Paris and Aix-en-Provence for about one week. I'm looking forward to seeing many people in France. The best place is always where I've never been to.
