Hato Bus Tour for Foreigners

Hato Bus is one of the famous tour bus companies for Japanese. The Hato Bus also conducts to introduce Tokyo for foreigners. In particular, the tour introduces about Japanese historical city, temples, shrines, garden or trendy hot spots like Tokyo Sky Tree. In this movie, Japanese English learners also participate in this tour. Video.(13 min. Japanese)

ECC students could talk with foreigners in the tour directly and also they could learn English there. I think it is good opportunity to communicate with people who can speak English because we need such opportunities in Japan and also, we have to know our history and culture to introduce to foreigners. However, the tour conductor’s English is very typical Japanese English, I think. I wonder about people can understand his English.
