Trailblazer "Meet Richard, the mastermind behind My Tokyo Guide and your expert guide to all things Japan. It all began in 1997 when Richard, a University of Lethbridge exchange student, fell in love with the friendly people and captivating culture of Japan. He knew he had to come back for more, and after graduating, he spent time living in various parts of the country, including Hokkaido, Miyagi-ken, and Niigata-ken, before finally settling in Tokyo. With a B.A. in Economics and a Masters Degree in Business obtained in Japan, Richard is the perfect person to lead you on an unforgettable journey through this amazing country. Let his passion and expertise guide you on your next adventure in Japan."
"Get ready to conquer Mt. Fuji with the ultimate guidebook in your hands. In 2013, our founder, Richard, published the very first edition of "Climbing Mt. Fuji: A Complete Guidebook," dedicated to helping climbers plan and prepare for a successful ascent of this iconic mountain. But this guidebook is more than just a practical resource - it also delves into the cultural rituals and traditions associated with climbing Mt. Fuji. And it's not just us who think it's a must-have - since its initial publication, the guidebook has gone through four editions and become the best-selling guidebook on the market. Plus, Richard has even been featured on Japan's national broadcasting channel, NHK, as a professional English-speaking guide on the show "Japan's 100 Most Famous Mountains." Don't miss out on this essential resource - order your copy today on Amazon.com."
