Hi! I'm Yoshie. Thank you for clicking my page. Please call me Yoshi like the green dinosaur of Super Mario if you know him! I am a National Certificated English-speaking tour guide.
Before I became a tour guide, I was living in Osaka and worked as an English teacher for kids from 5 to 14 for 6 years. After moving back to my hometown Saitama, north of Tokyo, I got the guide license in 2016 in hope that I would help and communicate with people from all over the world who come all the way to my beloved country, Japan. Now I'm very proud of my job and have really exciting experience.
I'm a mom of a high school boy with a big appetite, so cooking is one of the fields that I'm good at. Please ask me anything about Japanese cuisine! Besides, I'm a bonsai enthusiast. I've been taking bonsai lesson seriously at a bonsai nursery located in Omiya, the mecca of bonsai, for about two years. If you are interested in this beautiful botanical art, I'm more than happy to help you. One more field that I'm good at is architecture, especially Omotesando area and Ueno Park. Tokyo is an ideal city where you can enjoy both traditional and contemporary architectures.
I'm looking forward to seeing you and helping you bring unforgettable memories of journey back home.
See you in Japan!

Yoshie is simply the most amazing and brilliant guide one can expect. She took great care of my friend and I during the one day we had in Tokyo. Under her care we toured the old fish market and bits of down town Tokyo. And upon my request we went to the old section of Tokyo, crowded winding streets of Asakusa. Feel really terrible we made her walk almost 10 Km! Yoshie, great job. Thanks for everything. Hope to see you soon.
Thank you for your review, Parag-san! I was really glad to walk with you through the winding allies, which was an exciting experience for me too! I'll never forget the wonderful time with you. Hope to see you again soon!!
we had a very nice day with lots of information and very nice places, which we would not have found otherwise
Volker-san, thank you for the review! The day we had together is unforgettable for me. I do hope to see you two again!

Hi Minal-san! Thank you for the great review. The day I spent with you was really wonderful and unforgettable for me too. I passed by a park near my house today which is famous for wisteria and it reminded me of you. Thank you for coming all the way to Japan and hiring me as your guide. I'm already missing you all!
