Masako Iwai

Hello, I am Masako. I am a national licensed guide interpreter (English). I was born and raised in Nara. I have learned Japanese folklore and mythology as well as history. I would be happy if I could help you to find out JAPAN you don’t know yet.
With a long history of more than 1400 years, Nara is filled with historic sites and magnificent sightseeing spots. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in exploring the old ancient city with a local guide. I would like to assist you to spend enjoyable time! Looking forward to seeing you!!
