Hi, I’m Aki, a government licensed English speaking tour guide.
I was born and raised in Kagawa prefecture, the venue of Setouchi Triennale, facing the beautiful Seto Inland Sea, in western Japan.
After graduating from a university, I had worked for a global electronics company in Tokyo for 30 years and retired early. Working with foreign colleagues gave me fantastic opportunities to learn about Japan from their points of views, and I came to think it's fun to talk about Japan with foreign people.
Also, I love traveling. I have visited a lot of places throughout Japan, amazed by its beautiful nature, great tradition, and wonderful food. I realized Japan has numerous tourist attractions.
Then I became a tour guide, hoping to entertain foreign visitors with my tours based on my experiences as a tourist.
I've been living in Yokohama and Kamakura areas for more than 30 years. I know Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura, and Hakone very well. I love food, nature, cultures, and architectures. I value genuineness of what to see, experience, taste and buy, which cannot always be experienced in a group tour.
I believe that participating in my guided tour will bring you a lot of fun. I can help you to explore Japan deeper and to get in touch with the locals, taking you to both popular spots and unbeaten sites where you can see the daily lives of the people.
Let’s share a joy of touring in this lovely country.
Thank you and see you in Japan!
Hello. I am Kaori! I am a horticulturalist, interpreter as well as tour guide.
As you may have noticed, even in a densely populated area in Tokyo, you can find a small shrine, park, or traditional architecture integrated into a modern landscape. Although our historical monuments has suffered through the history of fire and reconstruction, and not a whole medieval town-scape is preserved as it does in Kyoto, Tokyo still keep its memory of old days thanks to local people's efforts to preserve our cultural value and heritage.
I took a university degree of Landscape and Garden Design in the UK and have a professional experience in the Japanese landscape industry. With my educational, and professional background, I would like let my guests to look into the dynamism of the transformation of Tokyo and uniqueness of local life.
My passion is to conserve natural and cultural heritage in Tokyo. I have hosted numerous landscape walk tours in west Tokyo for national and international residents in Japan.
I also love hiking, growing vegetables, and flowers. So, If you are outdoorsy person or garden lover, please be my guest. In my personal opinion, the best garden to go differs according to season. I would not betray your expectation if you are keen on horticulture.
If you would like to request a customized tour in another specific topic, please do not hesitate to inquire.
As I have traveled many places all over the world, I understand that creating itinerary is fun but time consuming. Also I understand the need for flexibility according to your condition of the day. I can help you to get maximum experience during your stay in Japan.
If the availability on my calendar does not match with yours, please send message to me in case I am able to adjust my schedules (sincere apology in advance if I couldn't).
I am looking froward to seeing you!
I was born and grew up in Yokohama. I used to work in Tokyo for more than 20 years. I've got the national license of a tour guide in English in 2013. At first, I had attended a volunteer group which provided a tour of the Imperial Palace East Gardens until 2015. I guided more than fifty times in the garden as a volunteer and studied about Japanese history and culture. Based on this experience, I became a tour guide of TripleLights in 2015.
Since then, I have guided more than 500 tours in Tokyo as well as Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone, Kyoto, Nikko, etc., while improving my tours. My tours are very flexible and I always do my best to customize them according to the interests of my guests. I studied about the places and will provide you knowledge to appreciate them more deeply than just visiting there by yourself or a member of group tours. I like foods and I know many restaurants which provide typical Japanese lunch with reasonable price without waiting too long. Therefore, I am sure that I can provide you the best tours customized to your interests. It will be my great pleasure to help you to enjoy your stay in Japan. So please be my guest!!
