Trips with memorable encounters

In my student days, I enjoyed travelling around Japan and abroad on my own. In my younger days, I visited many famous tourist spots in many countries. When I open the album and look at the photos I took at that time, I can vaguely recall the places I visited.

However, for me, despite the passing of many years, the thing that I can remember vividly, is not the places that I visited, but rather the people that I met on my trip.

A few years ago, when seeing off a group of Chinese high-school students at the airport, I remember being really pleased to hear from one of the male students that “the thing that has left the deepest impression on me from this trip is not the place of Japan, but you!”. If my customer’s first memory of the trip is being with the Omotenashi guide, nothing could please me more.

Barrier-free trip

One of my hobbies is jogging, and several years ago, I broke my right ankle while jogging. For one month after the fracture, I did not set one foot outside my house, and thought "If I am never able to walk again, I will not be able to enjoy the trips that I love…." I remember feeling really despondent just imagining this. From this event, I was seized with the strong urge to help people who were hesitating to come to Japan because of some physical disability.
