On April 16th 2017, I guided a couple from Mexico. We toured Nijo castle, Arashiyama including lunch & shopping and Golden pavilion in one day . I was glad that they seemed very happy especially walking in the natural beauty from banboo forest through cherry blossams to the riverside in Arashiyama.
On May 7th 2017, I joined a Japanese TV crew as an interpreter for intervewing foreign visitors in Kyoto. The location was at a farmer's inn in mountain area and I talked with an couple who really loves the nature, calm and streaming rhythm existing there. I tried my best interpreting it to be delivered lively to the viewers of the program.
