Sayuri Fujimoto Concierge
My name is Sayuri Fujimoto. My name includes two famous keywords about Japan.
“Sayuri” is the Japanese title of Hollywood movie, “Memoirs Of A Geisha”. And “Fuji” has the same sound of Mt. Fuji. I guess now you remember my name. Please call me “Sayuri” or “Fuji-san”.
The word explains me well is Curiosity. Curiosity brings me many places in Japan and overseas. I traveled abroad by myself for the first time when I was a university student.
Since I traveled Australia then, I have been addicted to travel and communicate with local people.
I was born in Matsuyama city, Ehime prefecture, where takes just a 10 minute drive away from Dogo Onsen, one of the oldest hot springs in Japan. After I graduated from Ehime University, I have lived in Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Okinawa, and Quebec, Canada.
These cities are respectively quite popular and attractive, but Nara is also a charming city with atmosphere.
Nara boasts the World Heritage sites such as Horyu-ji temple and Todai-ji temple, beauty of rural Japan, time-honored high quality crafts and attractive local people.
What attracts me the most is the serene atmosphere around Nara Park, especially in the early-morning hours. And the freely roaming sacred deer add beauty and charm to its atmosphere.
I will dig out more of attractive sites, experiences and people in Nara.I am very happy to introduce them to you. And even more happy if you become a Nara fan throughout our travel plans!
