Tour Guide Interpreters

  Bilingual guide interpreters will introduce to traditional and modern Japanese culture through fun and interesting experiences.

  More than 500 qualified Guide-Interpreters belong to IJCEE. They will expertly guide you with warm hospitality and total dedication in English, French, Chinese, Spanish and Korean.

<Guide-Interpreter Law>

This law stipulates that the guide-interpreter business is to escort foreigners and to give them guiding services concerning travel with the use of a foreign language for a consideration.(Article 2) It means that if you get a fee for guiding foreigners in a foreign language without the guide license, it is illegal even though you're doing it as a part-time job. As it is the business to give services to foreigners, the phrase like "to escort foreigners" or "with the use of a foreign language" is a matter of course. And the phrase "guiding services concerning travel" shows that these services include quite a wide range of traveling in Japan such as services related to travel, means of transportation, restaurants, souvenir shops and so forth.
