My name is Carlos Ramos Fuentes and I'm from Galicia, Spain. I'm a translator, interpreter and producer in Tokyo, Japan, but have also lived in Kyoto, Texas, Barcelona and Salamanca. I hold a Master's Degree in Culture and Business in Eastern Asia by the University of Barcelona, and a Bachelor's Degree in Translation and Interpreting by the University of Salamanca (with an international stay in Doshisha University, Kyoto). I've informally toured around in Tokyo and Kyoto in all my working languages.

About the tour

We'll be learning about the actual history of Meiji Jingu Shrine in Shibuya, in Tokyo.

We'll start with a quick history introduction on religion in Japan. After that, we'll have a course on how to purify oneself and pray properly in Japanese temples. We'll be drawing 'omikuji' or fortune slips, which the guide will translate from Japanese into English, and later we'll also speak about the history of Meiji Jingu Shrine.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
