Overview

What to Expect

Origami is one of the elaborate Japanese cultures known as paper folding. Various items can be created by only folding a square paper like animals, flowers, foods, playing toys and more! In this culture experience lesson , I 'll instruct you how to make basic Origami crafts depends on your level and requests. For beginners (adults), I recommend to make like flowers,animals, heart, crane and so on. For young children, I can instruct them to make easy animals and flowers, playing toys or Ninjya stars. For intermediate, we can try to make a little bit more complicated crafts. Origami is not only a part of Japanese culture but also it is used as an educational tool for kids in Japan. It might need your patient and concentration, but you'll become skillful with your fingers after this lesson!

You can make as many as possible in an hour. If the time will extend, additional fee is required. I am available to do this lesson from 9:00 am to 18:00 pm. Please contact with me before your booking!

“ 2 days touring Tokyo ”

Yukiko was our guide in Tokyo. We had 2 days booked for my family, my husband and 2 children ages 11 and 12. Yukkio was very knowledgeable and flexible, we never felt pressure to keep to the itinerary. She picked great sites and restaurants for us. She even went out of her way to find a soccer shop, so my son could purchase a Japanese Soccer shirt! She really did her best to ensure that the kids were engaged and having a good time. When we return to Tokyo, we will definitely reach out to Yukiko!

YUKIKO:

Thank you very much for your warm and heartfelt review, Jennifer! I really appreciated it. I also thank you to share your valuable time in Tokyo with me. I'd like to improve my guiding skills more for your future visit. There are many attractive sites in Tokyo and nearby area that I would like to show you. I welcome your visit always. Thank you once again! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Tokyo Day Tour ”

Our personalised day tour with Yukiko was fantastic. It was definitely a highlight of our Japanese holiday. We had an amazing day visiting many tourist sites in Tokyo. Having a private tour allowed us to personalise our day to suit our family needs. Yukikko was extremely professional, kind, considerate and answered all our questions along the way. Do not hesitate to book a private tour. We highly recommend Yukiko as a private guide. 5 stars from us! Thank you Yukiko Regards, Sophie

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your warm review, Sophie!! I am pleased that my tour became one of the highlights of your Japan trip. Your kids are very lovely and adorable. If some memories of Japan remain in thier minds, that would be wonderful. I always welcome you and hope to meet you again. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!

“ Lovely, patient, and skillful. ”

Yukiko taught an origami lesson to three children, 8,10, and 12 years old. She was wonderful! She began with simple objects and moved to increasingly complicated creations as the kids caught on quickly through her patient and skillful instruction. She wore a kimono which they also loved, and really enjoyed their time with her. I'd highly recommend Yukiko to any family!

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for taking my Origami lesson! I was so impressed that they caught on quickly my instruction and we made 7 different kinds of Origami craft during the lesson. Even after the lesson time was over, they continued to create so many small sized hearts to make a wall decoration on a paper board. I'm so glad that they really enjoyed the lesson and loved Origami. Domo Arigatou!!

“ trouper guide ”

Yukiko was our tour guide for June 5, 2018. Yukiko was an excellent tour guide, she was flexible as far as customizing our tour and knowledgeable about the Japanese culture and history. She researched and answered all our questions, and provided many insights and recommendations as to how we can enjoy our Japan tour. She took us to an amazing revolving sushi place, which the whole family enjoyed. Best of all, Yukiko was so accommodating to my aunt who had a slight mobility problem. I think this made the tour extra special as she was so patient with her. I recommend Yukiko to everyone who is going to Japan for the first time.

YUKIKO:

Thank you very much for taking your time to post a review, Dawn! Your review made me so happy and good to hear that everyone enjoyed the revolving sushi restaurant. Yes, we all enjoyed various kinds of fresh sea foods, fish and even tempura! There are 8 people in your group, I guess that it is not so easy to visit one place to another by yourself. I'm glad to hear that my assistant could help to your aunt and others. There are many beautiful and enjoyable places in Tokyo and other cities, I hope you'll visit Japan again someday. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ VERY PATIENT! ”

Yukiko was GREAT! Even though we only spent one day with her, she was amazing! Very patient!! I would DEFINITELY recommend her to all my friends and family!

YUKIKO:

Thank you for your review, Charlene!! As you have been to Japan many times, this time we visited some off the beaten track in Kanagawa prefecture and did a lot of new experiences! I'm glad that you enjoyed everything we visited; doing a couple activities and eating many different Japanese foods such as fresh seafoods and Sushi and local Izakaya menu. Thank you once again for choosing me as your guide. I am looking forward to meeting you again in the future!!
