Hello, my name is Mariko. I'm originally from Shizuoka, but I now live in Tokyo. I enjoy traveling and eating while walking around. I also like discovering the sights of foreign countries, enjoy meeting new people and think my ability to connect with people quickly is one of my talents. it is for those reasons I am excited to take 9n the role of a host and introduce people to one of my favorite spots, Shoin-jinja-dori. The reason this area is so dear to me is due to the community which lives there, and I would like to introduce my guests to this community, and present a real look into the ""true Japan"", not available in any guidebook.
