Hello everyone, it's Tad!
I was born in Osaka and raised up in Kobe, and came back to Osaka for my university and work.
I studied clinical psychology in my university.
I was especially interested in children who have developmental disorder such as Down's syndrome, autism, ADHD and orphaned children, and whose parents can’t look after them due to their work or private reason.
I used to help them with their homework and nursing as a student volunteer.
Also when I was a university student, I went abroad to Australia for the first time in my life, which made me want to know outside world more.
I went to see the outside world of Japan but I was the amazing aspects of my own country.
I truly saw the beauty of Japan and kindness of people.
So that after the graduation of my university, I decided to move to Australia with working holiday visa for two years. In Australia, I bought a car and traveled whole around Australia doing labor work.
During my time in Australia, I was surprised by the beauty of nature and how wide the world is, and I was helped and well treated by locals. And also I realized Japanese has very unique and beautiful culture.
That experience made me want to share Japanese culture and help you experience traditional Japanese hospitality. I’d like to do my best to make your precious memories in Japan as well as local people in Australia treated me as a part of their family.
After returning from Australia, I spent 3 months backpacking around 17 countries of Europe.
To tell international guests Japanese culture, history and hospitality, I became a rickshaw runner in Kyoto Arashiyama.
That’s why I became an officially licensed English guide of Kyoto city and decided to live my life as a professional English guide.
As I’ve lived in Kobe, Osaka and Kyoto, I’m good at guiding these cities and customizing private tours for FIT (foreign independent travel) guests.
Especially I hold a cultural food walk tour which complies with any special dietary restrictions in Osaka’s night out spots
