Tsuneharu

I am a railway fan. My favorite spots also include the little hot springs, various shrines and temples, drama and movie location settings, and so-called “animation sanctuaries.” Though I've worked most of my life in the information technology industry, my fondness for travel drove me to pass the National Examination for Certified General Travel Service Supervisor. I have attended H.I.S. Tours. I have over 10,000 "rail fan" followers on Twitter(@RailfanGuide). On March 9th 2019 I will release a book about how to become an inbound tour guide without qualification, as culmination of my many hobbies. I have spent about 40 years and more than 10 million yen as a railway hobby. I am not good at English, but I will entertain you with my hard work flyer and passion.
