The "other" side of being a guide in Tokyo
「相撲の朝稽古と本場所」「築地魚市場」「浅草」「上野」 「皇居」「野球観戦」「生ビールバー」etc, etc
A talk based on the experiences of Mark Buckton, a guide in and around Tokyo for the better part of 10 years.
This talk will look at the tours conducted by Mark Buckton for a number of companies over the past decade.
Mark has taken visiting Europeans, North and South Americans, Australians, Asians and even Japanese around the city on numerous occasions – many turning up funny or interesting anecdotes, which will be mentioned in the talk.
From visiting TV crews and media sorts to famous actors to global business leaders and everyday folk on holidays and honeymoons, there are few weeks that go by without Mark being asked to take at least one person or group somewhere.
Sumo morning practice and tournaments, the Tsukiji fish market, and the north east area around Asakusa and Ueno are the most frequent requests he gets but he has also been asked to take people to Osaka, around the Imperial Palace, to baseball games and craft beer bars.
With his background in publications on inbound-tourism, he will share with us the places on and off the beaten track that many non-Japanese really love to see or hear about, and that many locals do not know…..or wish to share.
