Hello, I'm Yoko. I was born and brought up in Ashikaga, Tochigi prefecture (80 km north from Tokyo) and I've lived in Tokyo for more than 20 years.
I love traveling, both overseas and inside Japan. After I visited other countries and saw many local cultures there, I realized that Japan has a variety of unique cultures with a lot of tourist attractions.
I hope you enjoy your stay in Japan. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!

“ One day Tokyo Tour ”

Yoko took me and my family on a unforgettable one day tour through Tokyo. As this was our first trip to Tokyo, Yoko also provided us with instructions on how to find our way in Tokyo which was very helpful throughout our stay. She met us at the hotel and showed us some wonderful shrines and shopping areas. Yoko is a wonderful person who is very knowledgeable about Japanese customs and traditions. I would highly recommend her to anyone who plans to visit Tokyo.

“ Private Tokyo Tour ”

My family enjoyed our tour of Tokyo with Yoko. She is friendly, accomodating, flexible and efficient. Even though we had alot to see throughout the tour she never rushed and somehow just fitted everything in. She catered to our needs and adapted as we went along including last minute changes on the day itself. What I appreciate most was her openess and warmth. She was always smiling and cheerful. We felt so comfortable with her. It was like a friend bringing us around. Thank you so much Yoko!

“ Personalised tour of Tokyo ”

We had a fantastic day with Yoko. As well as taking us to all the sites we wanted to see Yoko explained the history and customs of each place She taught us how the underground trains worked so we could get around ourselves and recommended places to go We had a delicious Japanese lunch which was enjoyed by all. Yoko was an excellent guide.

“ Great experience and fun ”

Yoko was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She covered a lot of the important sights in Tokyo but didn't make it feel rushed. Tokyo can be overwhelming for the first-timer but Yoko helped us navigate very easily. She also helped us with shopping at the end of the busy day as a lot of the department store employees don't speak English. She helped us with ticket reservations for the rest of the trip too! All in all it was a very good experience and would recommend her for other first-timers!!

Yoko was very responsive to our itinerary wishes and was well prepared in moving us easily from place to place using the metro/underground. She was like a friend in Tokyo - easy to be with - who helped us in every respect, from buying train tickets to providing relevant facts and cultural info of each place, from finding a great Okonomiyaki dining spot to answering all our questions. As I enjoy photography, she helped me get certain shots (e.g., traditional wedding party). She was always willing to take photos of us whenever we wanted. She introduced us to a visitors' center with a great view of Sensoji and its surroundings. She's a caring guide and we recommend her.

We have done many tours in many cities in the world. But nothing can come close what we had in Tokyo. It is like having local family member (sister, daughter ...) walk you thru town in most comfortable, efficient and self controlled pace. And Yoko, our guide did all that in Best way. We are completely satisfied and happy the way she customized our interests regarding to sightseeing, food and shopping options in giant city like Tokyo. And I can say we got most out of it whatever was possible in 8 hours to see experience and feel the local life in Tokyo while she was with us.

We had a great day exploring Tokyo with Yoko. She was extremely accommodating before, during and after the tour, even making suggestions for what we might do/see on our own aside from what we did on our tour. Her very friendly and polite nature and desire to help made our tour excellent. She was also flexible and did everything she could to make our day in Tokyo a fun one! It's great sightseeing with a local and learning more about their culture. Thanks so much Yoko!

We had a wonderful time exploring the city of Tokyo! Yoko was very accommodating and helpful with information. My husband and I were glad that we chose to do a private tour with Yoko instead of joining those big groups of city tours. By doing a private custom tour, we were able to see a lot and experience more of Tokyo in a limited time. After the tour, Yoko continued to provide us with a lot of information via email so my husband and I can continue to explore Tokyo on our own time. Thank you Yoko! Koki says hi :-)

Yoko is a very nice tour guide. Her English language skills are excellent and she knew Tokyo very well. We had a lovely day visiting gardens, temples and enjoyed a traditional tea ceremony. I recommend her for assisting you around Tokyo by public transportation.

Yoko was an excellent guide. We would not have found our way without her. She took us to some amazing places, and explained about each place well in good English. We had a fantastic lunch at a place we would never have looked twice at - but the food was really tasty (and cheap). Thank you Yoko for a fabulous day out.

Hi Yoko san, we just want to say how lucky we are to be able to have you as our tour guide. You are very very kind and understanding and you did your utmost for us, especially to our 2 year and 4 month son. You are very patience toward him and thats what amazed us the most, you are truly amazing. And we are all satisfied with your guidance. You are very informative and very capable to adapt with our last minute changing plan due to the bad rainy weather. After a day trip with you, We know Tokyo wayyy better now. Really hope to see you again someday.
