I am a writer of historical novel which based on Yedo cultural background. Yedo is an old name of Tokyo and was constructed by Tokugawa Shogunate in early 17th century. Yedo era lasts more than 260 years and whole nation was ruled by samurai. It was quite peaceful period and many unique cultures became in full bloom. Asakusa was a cultural epicenter at that time. As a novelist, I won a prize for a new figure and published a couple of novels about Yedo. While I am doing a lot of research for my novels, I became to know many interesting story about Yedo. Not only taking you to the spots, but I can tell you historical and cultural background of Tokyo. Through this, I hope to enrich your understanding of Japan and Japanese people.
I am an award-winning samurai novelist. In addition to doing a lot of research for my novels, I am also a licensed national guide in Japan who is certified to perform as a translator in English. Rather than work on a tour bus, I prefer small, intimate groups. My goal is to enrich visitors experience in Tokyo by helping them learn about the past, present, and future of Japan.
