About

I grew up in Fukuoka and Tokyo. I went to Paris and studied French and have experience working for Tokyo offices of international companies in various industries. My spouse has a bicultural background (French and American), as do my two children (Japanese and American). When I was a little girl, I learned Japanese dance (Nihon buyou), tea ceremony (Sado), calligraphy (Shodo), and flower arrangement (Kado). My hobby now is to travel within Japan, to visit my daughter in San Francisco, and to revisit Paris.
I am looking forward to sharing my love of Japan and Japanese culture with you and helping you experience something special when you visit Japan.

“ "An Eye-opening Experience" ”

Kaoruko is the BEST guide we've ever had! She is very warm and friendly, super informative throughout the whole tour. She made sure that everyone is together at all times as Japan can be quite hectic at times and her hospitality is top-notch! Very passionate and genuine as well as being aware with our needs. Definitely would recommend her to anyone who is interested, you'll surely enjoy the tour experience! Hoping to meet Kaoruko again sometime in the future.
