Tour Guide

Who I am...

After working in Sales & Marketing for 30 years, I became a tour guide in 2014. I have always liked arts and architectures and now trying to visit as many architectural works as possible around the globe.

My favorite architects / architectures…

I admire the architects such as Tadao Ando, Shigeru Ban, SANAA and So Fujimoto.
Benesse Art Site Naoshima & The Phoenix Hall of Byodo-in are my favorite places to visit.
You can enjoy lots of Ando’s architecture and many artworks at Naoshima. I specially adore Benesse House Museum where you can enjoy contemporary art both in your hotel room and lounge space. Teshima Art Museum by Ryue Nishizawa and Rei Naito is amazing and I believe you won’t be able to find anything similar in the world.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s work was inspired by Byodo-in which is understandable when you go here!!

Next architectures to visit in my bucket list

Couvent de la Tourette in France & Ajanta and Ellora caves in India.
I'd like to feel and experience the art of light through louver windows.

Favorite Rugby Team...

Sunwolves & Panasonic Wild Knights
Their tough defence and speedy attack are simply great!!

I'm also fascinated by…

recent sophisticated designed cars such as Alfa Romeo Giulia & Mazda Kai concept.

I'm recently into…

tea ceremony rooms and "SUKIYA-ARCHITECT" from being involved in tea ceremony session. I have a fascination for HORIGUCHI sutemi and MURANO togo.
