(This is a tour streamed from the room - no street live streaming. 15 minutes book introduction + free chats afterward) Places depicted in novels are often famous, fascinating spots and worth visiting yourself. The protagonist in The Temple of the Golden Pavilion by Yukio Mishima was from this prominent temple and strolled well-known places in Kyoto. Osamu Dazai depicted his hometown, Tsugaru, in northern Japan very beautifully. As an avid traveler himself, Yusuke has been to those places described in popular books. On another occasion, he has been hosting online book clubs on Japanese literature since 2020. Yusuke is eager to introduce those interesting sites across Japan to Heygo travelers. This tour is live-streamed from his desk at home or somewhere he travels. Yusuke picks up a critically acclaimed Japanese novel each time and introduces attractive places described in it, using pictures and presentation materials. After that, he opens the floor, and you can enjoy free chats. Yusuke always loves your company. Please jump on the tour and join the discussion with him!
Japan has an incredible list of interesting aspects to explore. Be it history, culture, art, tradition, religion, or culinary delights - with Yusuke, you’ll get to discover all that Japan has to offer. Yusuke is a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter in Japan. Before foraying into the exciting world of travel and tourism, he worked in the IT industry for over three decades. If you're looking to understand Japanese business culture and social issues, he's your go-to guide. On his tours, you get to see one of the biggest megalopolises in the world, while learning about traditional Japanese culture and ideas. If you're lucky, you might find yourself getting a glimpse of old charming alleys or karaoke bars. He'll make sure you're welcomed, comfortable, and enjoy learning something new. Join his tour and explore “live” Japan together!

Travel and literature... two of my favourite things combined into one tour. Yusuke's tours are always so calm and relaxed and I really enjoyed this one, as it gave us a personal insight into his book preferences and his home. Looking forward to more like this.

Always a wonderful time to tour with Yasuke. While this is different from a walking tour, it was still rather cultural and interesting. Definitely a different approach from other tours but still cool to take to learn something new.

Your tour was great, I really liked how you went to another place so we could learn about other areas of Japan. Having lived there for four years, there are still many areas I did not see. Thank you for this window, look forward to next one.
