Hi! I’m Tomoko.
I’m an English speaking certified tour guide, and a registered nurse as well. I'm a friendly, caring person, and I’ll do my best to make your experience enjoyable and memorable.
I’ve lived in and around Tokyo for over 30 years. For over 25 years, I have worked as a school teacher, nurse, and tour assistant in and out of Japan, while being a mother of two girls.
Through those experiences with lots of people from different backgrounds, I've found it’s a great pleasure to help people learn and experience something new.
Then, I decided to be a tour guide! I love meeting people, listening and talking with them.
What has made you decide to come to Japan, by the way? Is it its scenic beauties, exotic culture, history, or food? As you may know, Japan has four different seasons; each season has its own beauties, attractions, and special food to enjoy.
I love nature, hiking, and skiing. I also enjoy strolling around towns and gardens while appreciating seasonal flowers and food. So, I would like to take you to some of my recommended places and share the joy and views. I’m sure you will find out a lot about Japanese culture, nature, and lifestyle. Tokyo and its surrounding areas have many attractive spots, so you’ll never get bored!
Why don’t you contact me now? I will make a tour suggestion that suits you best. I’m looking forward to seeing you soon!
Thank you! Arigatou-gozaimasu!

What a wonderfull day we spent with Tomoko san !!! She speak very good english and is so kind and helpfull. Thanks to her, we discovered typical places which are impossible to find by ourselves. We had plenty of cultural and historical informations from her. She has a large knowledge of arts and history of Japan. We also like the lunch we shared. She was really friendly and spoke about japanise way of life and cooking. Very interesting for us. So, it was an unforgetable day and we decided to book an other day with Tomoko san at the end of our stay in Japan !!!
