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!

“ Great experience! ”

Very professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. Great experience overall. Thank you for a beautiful tour and day.


Thank you for taking your time to write a review, JF! I had an enjoyable time with your beautiful family and learned about cultural differences between your home country and Japan. Not only visiting famous tourist sites but also having dairy life style experiences of Japan make your travel more memorable and lead a deep understanding about that country. Hope you bring back a lot of real-Japan experiences. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Flexibility of sights visited fabulous. ”

Yukiko amazingly showed 2 jet-lagged seniors everything we planned PLUS a local sumo event. We were taxi dependent but this allowed my slow walking husband to enjoy every minute. We even had an unscheduled stop to purchase must haves for teen grandchildren. I think I have a feel for Tokyo, definitely have history and cultural background thanks to Yukiko. We will return to Tokyo in 12 days and will spend another half day with Yukiko to concentrate on Imperial Gardens. Wonderful experience.


Thank you so much for your great review, Barbara! The sumo event is held only once a year, luckily we could catch the great opportunity. I'm sure you're enjoying to visit other places now. I'm looking forward to meeting you again in 10 days. Have a safe trip and meet you soon.

“ 3 Generation Girls Trip ”

We spent 2 days touring Tokyo with Yukiko. We had 3 generations on our trip and Yukiko managed to pick a wonderful mix of places to visit that we all enjoyed. Some highlights were the plastic food store, photo booths on Takeshita street, Owl Cafe, Kawaii Monster Cafe, Tokyo Tower, Asukusa. After our 2 days with Yukiko, she also gave us recommendations for some other places to visit. We took full advantage of her knowledge of the city and learned a lot about how to navigate Tokyo


Thank you for your wonderful review for the tour! Some key points of our tour was Kawaii,cute and fun for girls! We dropped off some photogenic places that made our time more enjoyable. I hope you will visit Japan with your family again! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Imperial palace and Tsukiji market ”

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Yukiko. My husband has difficulty walking and climbing stairs. Yukiko arranged for a wheelchair and made an advanced reservation for our palace tour, and she was conscious about the difficulty of our 1 day tour. We kept in contact discussing possible itineraries, and she was flexible in where and when we wanted to go. Her response time was quick and to the point. Yukiko is very professional and gracious in her manner, she even wore a kimono for our tour. She shared Japanese culture and history in English very well. We couldn't have had a better guide! I would contact her again the next time we are in Japan.


Thank you so much for your thoughtful review, Patrice. It was a beautiful day for walking to see all the sites. I am very happy to hear that you had an enjoyable time in the tour. I always try to do my best as a professional guide, and I would like to progress and expand my expertise until I would meet you again the next time. Domo Arigatou Gizaimashita!!

“ Excellent Two Days! ”

We were a group of nine composed of three generations. My father and mother both in their seventies, myself, my wife, my sister, my sister-in law, and three kids aged 8, 6, and 5. Yukiko was able to plan the two days that was kept everyone interested and engaged the whole time! Working with Yukiko was a very easy and pleasant experience. The planning process was effortless. As first time visitors to Japan, she made sure she understood what we wanted out of the tour and gave her suggestions accordingly. Her responses were quick and she made an effort to answer all of our questions. Given that we had three young children with us, she made sure to include activities that would interest them. At the start of each day, she gave us an overview of the places we would visit and a brief expla... read more


Thank you so much for your excellent review, JM-san!! I can't find a better word to express my gratitude to your review of my tours. I was very happy that children had a great time with paper folding, treasure hunting and Ninjya activities. I hope what they experienced in Japan helps to broaden their horizons and expand their interests about Japan. I always welcome you back to Japan and see you again. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita !! Yukiko
