What is the specialty of this instructor?

Walking tour guide for foreigners


Keita Sawaji




After graduating from a local high school, I studied in Australia for 2 years . After that, working and earning money in Japan, I repeatedly traveled overseas for a long period. I have had a valuable experience such as seasonal part time job and tour guide in the countries I visited. Now I run a cafe and a BBQ house with my family.


There are many sightseeing spots and facilities in Japan. But have you ever been to an ordinary Japanese house or a workshop, for example, a fish store? In this tour, We will walk around the city while touching daily lives and people in Shimoda. You can take very interesting pictures on the way.

My recommendations

Superb view spots of Shimoda recommended by local guides
I'm at a loss of words whenever I face the splendid weeping cherry-blossom, in Fukane castle ruin in the mountains of Inazusa. Then along the Inozawa River in Higashi Hongo, it is as if walking under the roof of cherry blossoms, when you stroll there in spring. Both are musts to visit.
The most favorite spot in the ocean of Shimoda and what makes the spot so special
Nabetahama Beach. It's a beach with shining white sand. You can find a rocky shore to play near the beach, as well. Just walking on the coast, you can enjoy the unique atmosphere of Nabetahada.
Recommended restaurants for lunch that will make you want to come back to Shimoda again
Sun Lovers Cafe. You can enjoy delicious cuisine and drinks with reasonable price. Wi-Fi and kid's room are also equipped. The set of spaghetti and mini taco rice with appetizer and drink is of full volume.
