Fumie

I've lived in Kanazawa for over 30 years. I'm bilingual (Japanese and English) I mastered English by myself and had experience teaching English for nearly 30 years. As a local volunteer guide, I've given many guided tours to foreign tourists for over 5 years. I'm an enthusiastic learner so I keep learning local history and culture. I have a lot of interest in Buddhist statues. I often travel around the country, especially Kyoto and Nara, to visit temples and shrines there. I'm also interested in the culture of geisha. I now work for a geisha museum so I know a lot about the culture better than any other guides. I'm hoping to share my knowledge with my guests from around the world and help them understand our culture.

Where you'll be

"Kannon-in" is a Buddhist temple located near Higashi Geisha District. "Shima" is known as a well-preserved geisha house originally built nearly 200 years ago.
