Blog - My Debut as an English Speaking Tour Guide

During the height of Summer, I had a great opportunity to take a couple from the Midwest of the USA on a day tour in Tokyo. My guests were currently living in Hong Kong and they often traveled all throughout Asia. Although the husband had visited Japan many times before for his work, it was the first time coming to Japan for his wife.

First, I went to meet my guests at their hotel. They were both very friendly and said, “Where are you taking us today? We are very excited!” Since their request was to see the downtown area, I made plans to take them to the most thriving and vibrant spots in Tokyo.

First of all, we drove through Shinjuku and headed to Meiji Jingu Shrine. I took a great photo of my guests in front of the sacred trees, and they were able to have the full experience of a shine visit, learning the traditional manners and customs.

Then we went to Asakusa. At Sensoji Temple, my guests had an Omikuji fortune telling. Unfortunately, my guest drew “bad luck.” However, there was no need to worry, we folded up the Omikuji papers and tied them to a tree branch at the temple. The bad luck we left behind would be prayed for by the temple monks. Our next stop was the Imperial Palace. Although it was a quick visit, my guests enjoyed the beautiful scenery there.

Overall, I managed to show my guests all the places they had been interested in during our tour: Asakusa, the Imperial Palace, Tokyo Skytree Tower, Shibuya crossing, Ginza and Shinjuku. We headed to their hotel after the tour.

When it was time for me to leave, my guests thanked me with warm handshakes and big smiles. I showed them my gratitude as I handed them over a small thank you gift of Kabuki face masks.

I was very glad that my first time guiding guests in English went smoothly and was an all around success, thanks to my wonderful guests!
