I started a small tour company in Asakusa, my home one and a half years ago. I have lived overseas for 18 years, in England, Bulgaria, and the United States, where I taught Japanese and raised a family. People were so kind to me in those days that now I want to return the favor, by giving visitors to Japan wonderful memories that they can keep forever. I have provided Asakusa: 1400-year history exploration in last 6 month and I have maintained good reviews so far. Then I planned another tour which can be held only once in a year. CHERRY BLOSSOMS!
