Hi, I'm Kumiko! I was born and raised in Osaka, a city where most Japanese comedians are from. So, I like to guide my customers with a lot of fun stories and jokes, besides histories and facts. I have lived in the US for six years and worked at multinational companies before I became a tour guide. With that background, I often talk about Japan, its cultures, customs, histories and people in such ways that people from other countries would understand.
I love the Japanese histories which formed our society now, especially the dramatic shifts from the samurai time to modern times including the pre and post war, and would like to share some fascinating stories with my customers when they are interested.

Please contact me and let me support you to have a really good time in Japan!

“ wonderful guide ”

We had a great experience touring with Kumiko. She was very knowledgable and informative, as well as having a great nature. All of this made for a memorable and very enjoyable four hour tour of the local shrines, markets, park and temples. In addition her style was very flexible and accommodating which we truly appreciated. To sum it up, we could not have asked for a better guide. Thanks Kumiko :)
