About Mediator
First of all, "WELCOME to JAPAN", "BIENVENIDOS a JAPON". My name is Toshihiko Nakahara.("Toshi" for short) I used to live in USA, Mexico, Venezuela and Ecuador for more than 18 years in total. I am a Japanese Government Certified Tour Guide for English and Spanish. I guide not only so called "must -go" places, but to the places where you can enjoy Japanese culture and history. I am a Wine and Sake sommelier and I love introducing our guest Japanese Food and also paring with Wine and Sake. I also like studying about Japanese Sword. I do on AirBnB platform, the online experience about Japanese Sword called "The entrance to the world of Japanese Sword" under "Arts and Writing" section.

It was so interesting session. He taught me a lot about Japanese sward. Thank you.


It was a wonderful lecture on the Japanese swords, an iconic image of the Samurai. I learned a lot about how Japanese swords are made, and there are many different names for Japanese swords, such as"Tachi" "Katane" and "Wakizashi", which were used in different periods and uses. Thank you very much, Mr Nakahara.


Informative and enjoyable. Thank you so much!
