Kenneth

Japan is a country with Endless possibilities. I learn something every day. I am a Amateur Sumo Athlete. I have a passion for the culture of Japan. Interacting with the local people of Japan, will bring you the best memories that last a lifetime. Hanging with locals and experiencing the culture is what makes you a "traveler" not a tourist. This tour is Not Touristy, it will be Fun; a Culture experience (you will not forget); History. Just like family showing you around.
