What to Expect

All visitors have their own needs, desires and requests. This tour is range from individual to a family.

I had overseas experience with my families including my child and my grandmother. My grandmother was 86 years old and my child was two years old. It is very important to organize everything well in advance in order to fit their health conditions and paces.

If you take this tour, I will make an itinerary based on your requests. I will be able to take you wherever you want to go in 23 wards of Tokyo. This will depend on your health condition and pace, you can visit up to three or four places in a day. (If you'd like to stay long at each place and enjoy shopping, I recommend you to choose three places).
Besides your chosen spots, I can arrange lunch in advance based on your food preferences. Please also let me know, if you are using stroller or wheel chair, and any difficulties that maybe encounter during the long-distance walk.

There are so many attractive tourist spots that you can visit in Tokyo. I am a very flexible person, so please feel free to ask me anything through "Contact Yukiko" button. I will make an itinerary after hearing your needs and requests. If you'd like to visit Kamakura, I have Kamakura one-day tour as well. (Please click Kanagawa and check out my tour!) As it takes time to make an itinerary of this tour, I'd like to ask you to book this tour until 5 days before of your tour date.

I'd like to make your stay in Japan a real pleasant one. Please send me a message before booking the tour.


Thank you! Arigatou!

Hi, Konnichiwa! I'm Yukiko. I am a Government Certified Guide Interpreter and a Registered Nurse. I also have a license for being a food sanitation manager.
I was born and raised in Tokyo. I used to teach Japanese culture to local elementary school students when I stayed in Canada, America and New Zealand. My happiest moments with these children were when they look forward to another lessons every week. It was a challenging job but this experience broaden my horizon and prompted me to become an English tour guide.
If you take my tour, you will learn deeply about everything that comes into your view, get local information and experience many things.
I am a mother of a four years old girl. So I'd be glad to welcome families with young children and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask.

I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one.

Thank you, Arigatou!

“ Awesome experiences for us ”

I could not find a better words to describe your services for our family. We are well taken care of, having you is the best experience that we could ever have. As a family with a 4-years and 7-years kids, we are already restricted by the time and movement that we have during tour. However, we still tour Tokyo on places that we wanted to visit and also based on your recommendations. We enjoy the trip to Karamura and Tsuji Market and experiencing the local food and of course, the Kimono. Now, we are back home, we missed you so much. We hope to see you again.

“ One day tour based on on our request ”

From the beginning to the end this was an excellent tour guide and tour. Yukiko was on-time at our hotel to pick us up, dressed with a kimono which impressed us. She is very knowledgeable about the city's history and sites we visited. She showed us how to ride the metro so we could move around the city on our own during the days following her tour. Very accommodating with our requests and suggested sites we liked very much. She is fluent in English and taught us a few words and phrases in Japanese. We strongly recommend Yukiko as your tour guide in Tokyo. Thank you, Yukiko, for making our visit so memorable and we look forward to seeing you again! Arigatou Gozaimasu!

“ Perfect way to spend the day ”

From the moment we met Yukiko we felt comfortable, she was so welcoming and explained where we were heading and took care of all our travels. My son wanted to see temples and gardens are he loves landscape photography. Yukiko planned our day perfectly allowing plenty of time to take photos and browse through shops without any rush. My sons 17 & 18 thought she was fantastic and they can be hard to please. She catered for our personal requirements perfectly. We will highly recommend her to anyone we know that plans to visit Japan. Yukiko also gave us some great advise and ideas on how to make to most of the rest of our trip on our own. Thank you so much, we look forward to keeping in touch

“ A great guide ”

Yukiko-san is an outstanding guide to have with attention to details. She made our holidays a happy and memorable one.. Not only she heard and guided us, she took her own initiative to write down on a piece of paper in Japanese on some of the special request when dining. Thank you very much Yukiko.

“ Excellent day with Yukiko as an introduction to Tokyo ”

Yukiko was a pleasure as a guide. We enjoyed that she arrived wearing a traditional kimono, and we appreciated the visits with her to Meiji Shrine, Rikugien to see the weeping cherry blossom tree, a fun Yakitori, a quick visit to a Cat cafe and Ueno Park for more cherry blossoms. Yukiko was kind and flexible, adapted to the needs of our kids (9,15,18) and arranged things on the fly as the weather turned. She brought extra umbrellas just in case, and provided great information and guidance along the way.

“ One Day Tour in Tokyo ”

My friend and I booked Yukiko for a one day tour. Leading up to the tour, Yukiko was very responsive and helpful through our online messages. She was accommodating to our needs, patient, and polite. She was prepared with a binder that had pictures to supplement her explanations of history. My friend had expressed a liking to Monchhichi and Yukiko emailed me a few days after our tour to inform my friend of a giant Monchhichi statue she saw at a museum. I thought that was very sweet of her to think of us even after the tour ended. Yukiko also handmade use origami coasters with a thank you note. Overall a great experience!

“ A well-tailored and delightful personal tour ”

We had a rough idea of things we wanted to see and do during our day with Yukiko; things like "do something cultural," and "see amazing architecture." Yukiko was extremely responsive and helpful, and came up with great ideas we could choose from. On our tour day, Yukiko met us at our ryokan (traditional Japanese inn). We had a full fun day. Yukiko was a delight, answering all our crazy questions and guiding us through each venue. She even had historical information and little visual aids in a notebook prepared for us! Outstanding. Yukiko has a great, fun attitude, and her attention to detail is bar none. Our day tour with her was definitely a highlight of our trip, and I would book her again without hesitation.

“ Tours: Dec. 9, Dec. 12, & Dec. 13 ”

Guide Yukiko responds quickly to requests from clients. She answered one of my e-mails within the hour. She is very efficient and carries photos, maps, descriptions of places and calculates distances to be covered. She will also give estimates of taxi fares, if necessary. She will dress in Kimono at least once, to provide an opportunity for photos with a 'Geisha.' Her concern for the safety of elderly clients engenders warmth. Yukiko san is a wonderful person to have as your Guide.

“ Edo-Tokyo Museum, Yakiniku lunch, Samurai Museum, Cat Cafe ”

This was our second time with Yukiko-san after our last visit three months ago and we spent another great day with her this visit. She took our family of three through the Edo-Tokyo Museum which had a lot of interesting exhibits that showed us the lifestyle of people from 17th century Edo period till modern times. We had Yakiniku for lunch before visiting the Samurai Museum and a Cat café. Along the way, Yukiko-san would show us little places of interest like a quaint alley with little shops serving Yakitori in the evening. We were very happy to have Yukiko-san guide us again in our second visit to Tokyo this year.

“ A great day in Tokyo ”

We had just finished up an 8 night Japanese cruise when we ended in Tokyo. Yukiko met us promptly at our hotel once we arrived. We had planned out the schedule ahead of time and she was very good at picking places to visit that we would enjoy. The tour was excellent and she was very informative, answering all our questions and giving us lots of information on the places we visited. They pace was just right, not to rushed but not to hectic either. I had wanted to have unagi for lunch and she picked an excellent Resturant for us. You will not go wrong if you choose her as your Tokyo guide. Thank you Yukiko for a perfect day in Tokyo. You made it one of the best days we had in our Japanese vacation !!

We had a great time in Tokyo with Yukiko. She customized the tour for our particular group including our 7 year old son. The highlights of the tour included seeing our son react to all the various types of fish at the Tsukiji fish market and a visit to a sword demonstration at the Samurai museum in Shinjuku. Yukiko was very patient with our jet lagged family who was moving a bit more slowly than usual. We also appreciated the historical background Yukiko provided along with practical details for getting around Tokyo that were quite useful during the rest of our visit. We highly recommend Yukiko to anyone needing a tour guide for Tokyo.

Yukiko was a wonderful guide. We truly enjoyed our time with her and would highly recommend.

Yukiko was amazing from the moment we booked the tour with her. Growing up with Japanese anime, we wanted to spend the day soaking up everything we've read and seen in anime. Yukiko truly delivered! She started us off in Akihabara and continued to Harajuku and ended in Ikebukuro. She prepared subway and JR maps with our hotel marked so we can explore on our own after the tour. She also helped us find out information about things we want to do on the days we weren't with her...truly going above and beyond! Thank you Yukiko! We hope to see you next time!!

Thank you Yukiko for an excellent tour. You were so patient with us as we changed our minds so many times trying to decided what to do in Tokyo. Your email communication with us was excellent and everything went to plan. You even taught us how to use the subway!! Thank you for sharing your knowledge about your beautiful city. Jolie and Julie :)

Can I say a big thank you to Yukiko for guiding our family around Tokyo over 2 separate days... My wife & I along with our 2yo daughter had a fantastic couple of days seeing the sights we had planned out together... Everything was planned well in advance including tickets & the best routes to take with our stroller... We even had to make a few changes along the way as we did some sightseeing on our own in-between tours & also to fit in with our daughters mood... I can happily recommend Yukiko to anyone looking to visit the sights of Tokyo hassle free with a friendly local... Thank you :)

Yukiko was an exceptional guide for our group in Japan. We had a group of 5, ranging in age from 65 to 14 and she did a great job of crafting a full-day custom itinerary that had something for everyone. Over the course of the day she connected with each person, providing personal insights around individual interests and by the end of the day everyone felt the tour had been tailored to them. Prior to our trip, Yukiko and I exchanged several detailed emails, collaborating on an itinerary that maximized our time with her vs. things we could explore on our own. She developed a detailed itinerary for a full day that included the Tsukiji Fish Market, temples, shrines, a traditional Japanese lunch with authentic live music, all of us making plastic food like you see in restaurant windows and even a little taste of the Harajuku area (for the 14-year-old boy in the group). And more. I will unreservedly recommend Yukiko to anyone I know who has interest in a guide for their trip to Tokyo and will not hesitate to contact her again on a future trip. We've hired guides in many of the major cities of the world and I don't think we've ever had such an exceptional value as we received with her.

Yukiko was the most dedicated guide we could have! In perfect English and whit a great feeling what to present her guests, she crossed a lot of different neighbourgoods with us. What a fantastic first day in Japan we had, Yukiko made it memorabel. Isabel

Yukiko is a kind, pleasant and amicable lady who made our day tour enjoyable and informative as possible. She shared her extensive knowledge of Japanese culture and history as we roamed the Japanese gardens appreciating the cherry blossoms while at the same time enlightening us on the background of the tsukiji fish market. Not a novice traveller to Japan, she never failed to provide us with more facts that we never knew about. She always took initiative to look out for new places and provided us with clear directions of recommended places of interest taking into account her client's personal preferences and physical disabilities. She has been most gracious in being an interpreter, organised in booking our bus tickets in advance to gotemba outlets and whatnot. The tour has been smooth sailing as a result. I will definitely keep in contact with her and would recommend booking a personal tour with her the next time I visit Tokyo - maybe consider a Mt Fuji tour or Japanese artificial food making experience. Thank you, Yukiko. Best regards, Bryan.

Yukiko was fantastic. Included all the sites we wanted to see in such a memorable way. Very well prepared, generous in Sharing such wonderful insights into her culture! Professional and practical she was a tremendous ambassador for Tokyo and Japan.

I booked a full day tour with Yukiko, which I got to do what I wanted to do, see, and eat. My jam packed day consisted of, visiting some historic spot, visiting hidden gems of Tokyo which are unknown to the tourist, shopping (which I gave her a list of the things for the family), eating at a ramen museum, eating street food, and visiting an owl cafe. Please keep in mind, I kept emailing her and requesting for things and Yukiko was very prompt in terms of drafting the itinerary daily. Yukiko was very responsive, organized, prompt, helpful, accommodating, knowledgable, respectful and resourceful. Prior to our tour, we've communicated through email, which she informed me about the weather, where to meet, updated itinerary (since I kept changing my mind), and answered all my concerns. I am so glad I booked a personal tour with Yukiko, otherwise I would have spent my time in Tokyo getting lost and becoming best friends with the taxi cab drivers, staring at maps all day, or being stuck in my hotel to prevent myself in getting lost. If I had more time in Tokyo, within a heartbeat I would have booked her for the rest of my time here.

Thank you Yukiko for an informative fun day. Only having 1 full day in Tokyo I was very glad to have chosen a private tour with Yukiko. We covered a lot of interesting sites without feeling too rushed. Time for a fabulous Sushi lunch and a bit of shopping. I highly recommend this tour!

We had a very fun, informative, and enjoyable whole day tour with Yukiko. I highly recommend her as a guide. Five stars! She has been very helpful and accommodating to all of our requests and preferences and always prompt to answer queries plus her tips and recommendations are invaluable! Even helping us with other concerns on our Japan trip which we very much aporeciate. It truly was a joy to have had her as our Tokyo tour guide. Thank you Yukiko for being so friendly, fun, and professional at the same time:) From the day I booked the tour online, till the day of the tour, she gave us useful tips on helping us make our tour of Tokyo comprehensive and fit to our preferences. A worthy mention of our unforgettable tour with her aside from the usual must-sees in Tokyo, is the lunch we had at Tagetsu (which she recommended and promptly booked for us). In our group is Alfonso, a chef from Spain. We were all overjoyed (esp. Alfonso) with the amazing kaseiki dining experience that Yukiko set for us at one star Michelin, Tagetsu. Not only was the food superb, the chef/owner also happily obliged on Alfonso's request to view his kitchen! Incredible experience indeed! Yukiko was highly knowledgeable on all things Japanese---history, culture, etc.. plus her great command of the English language and wonderful personality made the tour with her one of the highlights of our Japan trip. Thank you again, Yukiko! And a special thank you for the dragon origami for Miguel. He loves it and how very impressive it is to be able to make such exquisite artwork! Very precious indeed!:)) Domo arigato. Best regards! Belle, Miguel (Manila, Philippines) Alfonso (Oviedo, Spain)

My wife and I appreciate Yukiko's attention to our needs. From the beginning of our correspondence, she put together various options for us to consider, given our previous visits to Japan that have made us more than just the regular Tokyo tourist. Yukiko was patient in keeping us updated with the status of each potential tourist spot as the actual tour date drew nearer. We had a wonderful time interacting with her throughout the tour, learning more about Tokyo and Japanese culture through our discussions in between tour sites (during our train commutes). Yukiko is very generous with information about her experiences with different tours, tourists, and sites within and outside Tokyo. We highly recommend her as a tour guide to those who are first time and previous visitors to Japan.
