In accordance to Japanese Law, you need a guide-interpreter license to be able to attend a foreigner while being compensated. Without a license, It is considered illegal and prohibited except for volunteers. For this reason, we offer guides in pairs, dividing the role of guide and interpreter. This allows TOMODACHI GUIDE to bypass the established law.
We advise you to divide the roles into a guide and an interpreter whenever you take foreigners to touristy spots (e.g. guiding about Sensoji temple while visting the temple).
