About Us

OHSGG Club provides voluntary sightseeing guide services around Hakone and Odawara areas in foreign languages to assist visitors from outside of Japan and non-Japanese speaking residents. All members in our group are volunteers who have various backgrounds and are willing to introduce our area to the people from foreign countries.

Our service area is Odawara, Hakone and surrounding regions. We accept the guide request via e-mail and arrange the tailored tour for you. Let's enjoy the beautiful Hakone mountains and Mt. Fuji view with the taste of history during Samurai era.

Please visit Guide Services and Guide Routes pages for more detail. If you need a guide, please visit Guide Request and Guide Policy pages.


OHSGG Club (Odawara and Hakone Systematized Goodwill Guide Club) is the voluntary organization established in 1996 as one of the systematized goodwill guide groups under Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO).
