ASAKURA Takenori


浅倉 武典


D.O.B: 1951


From ancient times, Yamato, or present Nara Prefecture, has often been referred to as “Mahoroba” which means the “best place to live,” and the first full-fledged capital of Japan was built here in the 8th century after Xi'an of Tang dynasty, China.

Although it is a land-locked region, Nara offers, with its long historical background, a variety of scenic beauty, traditional cultural assets, local specialties, and amusement spots like the “Deer Park” or Nara Park, including spiritual vortex sites. There is so much more to Nara than meets the eye.

Having been interested in exchanging cultures with people from different countries, I would be very happy to have the opportunity to show you around such an attractive city and the surrounding areas in a friendly manner. The itinerary can be coordinated as far as possible in accordance with your preference.
