Hello, my name is Yoko. I'm a government licensed guide. I was born and raised in Kyoto, and currently live in Fukuoka city. I moved into Kyusyu more than 10 years ago when I've got married. Meanwhile, I've lived four places such as Nagasaki, Kumamoto, Kagoshima, and Fukuoka.

My career as a tour guide started in 2013 when I lived in Kagoshima. I occasionally took a group tour for cruise ship passengers arriving at Kagoshima port. It's been a great pleasure to share the moment with multinational guests. At the same time, I feel like making more intimate tour with fewer guests catering to individual needs. Other than popular tourist spots, there are many hidden places where only local people know. Fukuoka, the biggest city in Kyusyu, is well-known for one of the popular city in the world to live, with its modern lifestyle and abundant nature. It is difficult to pick up some out of so many must-see spots. Please feel free to ask me whatever you want to do in Japan.

For personal information, I like reading books and watching films and dramas in English. Being exposed to books, films and dramas created in English for me is exploring the world without going abroad. I hope I can have a fun chat with guests over the topics. My favorite drama is Downtown Abby, The House of Card, This is us (I'm into it right now)

In my private life, I'm a mom of two children, a nine-year-old daughter and a seven-year-old son. Being a mother in Japan, I'd like to talk about the average Japanese family life such as education, social system, seasonal events, marriage life and so on.
