My First Debut Tour as a tour guide!

S_p1000724_2

Hi everyone!

I started my new career as a tour guide!

I had been away from home for 13 days

and traveled around Japan with 40 cute American Student Ambassadors

and 4 wonderful Delegation leaders!

Everyday was really like a drama!  Hahaha!

I took them around Tokyo (including Tokyo Metropolitan Government,

Meiji Shrine, Imperial Palace, Harajuku, Roppongi, Akihabara and Asakusa etc),

Mt Fuji, Hakone, Takayama, Gifu, Hiroshima and Kyoto.

Can you imagine where it is?

I enjoyed Mt Fuji trekking with vigorous students!

They love Mt Fuji very much! It was wonderful to share a good time with them.

The picture on the left is called,"ocean of the clouds" as Mt Fuji is higher than the clouds.

The right picture is a crater of Mt Hoei. I saw some students running around the crater with excitement.

A student has just caught a Iwana(char) fish with his own hands!

Look at his face.You see how happy he is!

Two girls are struggling with the fish trying to skewer them with bamboo sticks.

Later we broiled the fish over the charcoal fire and ate them!

It was really yammy!!(≧∇≦)

We visited a local shrine called Mizunashi shrine

located in Hida-Ichinomiya

where we stayed at a wonderful family inn named Mizuno-sou.

They love mama-san and papa-san(the owners)very much

partly because mama-san is a great cook and often gave them icecream?!

In Nagaragawa in Gifu, we enjoyed the demonstration of

the Cormorant Fishing at the hotel.

We could even touch the cormorants! How lucky we were!

I was amazed to know how the Americans love wearing Yukata and Happi.

Many girls bought yukata for their souveniors.

We also enjoyed Japanese drum performance and Bon-dancing.

It was really a wonderful night.

To my surprise, there were even several reportrers

on local newspapers and Asahi newspaper. Wow!

In Kyoto, they experienced Kyogen and practiced calligraphy.

They were excellent programs for the students.

We visited Miyajima at high tide! (Last year I visited at low tide.)

They love Miyajima and cute deer!

Some students became excited having their brochures eaten by deer!

As the final day was approaching, not a few students said to me,

"I don't want to go back to the States. I love Japan so much

I will come back here again! "

I'm thrilled to hear that and

I realized my first tour was a great success!!

One day, one of the leaders said to me

viewing the beautiful mountain scenery of Hida on the bus,

" You are proud of your country, aren't you?"

Yes, at that moment,  I had a full realization that

I am very proud of my country.

Japan is a beautiful country indeed.

There are so many beautiful things to see

and unique things to experience.

I'm very happy

to become a tour guide

finally ! (*^^*)

アメリカの少年少女、豪華なリッチな観光日程、それから長文の素直な英語報告、素晴らしい。ますます英文の世界に遊泳して、楽しんで下さい。小生は、英文は出来ないのですが、素直な英語がお出来になるのですね。もう、日本語忘れてしまいましたか?

 十分に休息、健康に気をつけて、再び乗り出して下さい。バイリンガル、つまり、日本語と英語の基本ソフトが、脳裡にインストールされているのですね。羨ましいです。

sun白頭老人さま
英語の記事を読んで下さって有り難うございます。
これから英文の記事も増やして行くつもりです。
というのも、英文でないと、読めないという友人が増えて来たのです。練習にもなるし。。(*^^*)
おつき合い下さって有り難うございます。

薔薇の手入れを本腰でやっております。。汗
留守にしていたせいか、一本枯らしてしまいました。。涙。。
仕方がないですね。。でも必死に手入れをしてくれた主人には感謝です。
