I'm a Tokyoite. I was born and grew up in Meguro-ward in Tokyo. I had been working for Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd. for 38 years. I was in charge of the international marketing division of Sumitomo Bakelite. Then I worked for two more companies with my English ability.
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, and Omotesando. 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.

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.
