I'm a Tokyoite. I was born and grew up in Meguro-ward in Tokyo. I used to be an office worker for a manufacturing company of Sumitomo Group.

I had been living in Meguro-ward and I'm living in Setagaya-ward, Tokyo. So, I'm very familiar with the areas such as Shibuya, Harajuku, Meiji-jingu Shrine, Aoyama, Imperial Place, and Omotesando etc. I stroll around in Shibuya, Harajuku, and Aoyama once a week.

I like Japanese traditional cultural things such as Kabuki, Noh, and tea ceremony. Especially, I have two close friends one of them plays Noh and the other practices a tea ceremony for a long time.
Please take a look at the tour named "Noh experience at Tessenkai training facility in modern town Aoyama, in Minato-ward, Tokyo." As for the tea ceremony, I'm planning to upload within this year.

On the contrary, I had uploaded exciting tour named " Fly me to Mt.Fuji, one day tour with paragliding in tandem and attractive sightseeing by car" This tour will be done on the limited days, but if you could afford to pay extra about 50,000 JPY, I can arrange chartered car on the day you want with checking out the booking status of chartered car company beforehand. This is an activity plus sightseeing tour around Mt. Fuji with my friend of a professional driver who would help me if you want to make your original tour using a car around Tokyo or the area within one day trip distance by car.

All tour plans uploaded here can be combined upon your request.

I love singing jazz songs and sometimes I visit a jazz bar nearby my house and sing some songs with a professional instrument player. I'm also planning local jazz bar tour to upload soon.

I'll try to be the best guide for you in Japan.
See you soon in Tokyo or another prefecture in Japan.

“ Amazing day in Tokyo with Yoshito ”

I can't begin to describe what an incredible first day in Tokyo we had with Yoshito! We are a family of five (3 young adult children) and Yoshi was amazing at putting together an itinerary that was interesting for us all. Yoshi is very knowledgeable, has excellent English and really enjoys guiding. We stopped for lunch at a delicious sushi spot too! He helped us navigate the subway to get places (which is both easy and fun) and was a source of much Japanese cultural and historical information. We all had a great day and couldn't have done half of what we did without Yoshito. Such a fun day! Thank you Yoshi!!


Hi Nora, Wow! I got a wonderful review of the tour of me. Thank you very very much for saying such a comment. I also had a great day with you and your happy family. Hope we meet up with you again the other day in Japan. Thank you Nora and 'sayonara' see you someday. Please give my best regards to your best husband Scott, and best children, Ian, Will, and Tara. Yoshi.

“ Great person and an amazing guide. ”

Yoshito is a great person and an amazing guide. Pre-event communication was clear and Yoshito was very accommodating. During the event, it felt like Yoshito was part of the team and all of our guests valued his support. Should we return to Japan and need a guide, we'll definitely book with Triplelights and Yoshito. Thanks for all of your help Yoshito, the event would not have been a success without it.


Dear Laurence and Daniel, Thank you very much for the most superb review. I’m very very happy to hear your message. I’m also willingly to help you all if you would come to Japan again. Sincerely yours
