About

Hello!! My name is Tomoko. I’m an interpreter, translator and a flexible personal tour guide. My current base is in Fukuoka. I live here for 11 years. More than 3 decades, I have lived in various places in Japan and US such as some areas in Shizuoka and Gifu, a few areas in Connecticut, California, and New York. Also, I’ve travelled to domestic spots in Japan, overseas like USA, Europe such as Italy, Germany, France, and Switzerland.


Through those valuable experiences, I’ve been fond of meeting diverse people from all over the world and to get to know them and share lots of knowledge, wisdom, information, history with them.

In 2013, I was offered as an consecutive interpreter when 3 guest speakers from US and Mexico came to Japan. Also I was assigned to do escort interpreter. It means I had to take them to tourist spots in Kanto region where I was not familiar with. The experience made my eyes open a lot and changed my whole perspective to be a tour guide.

Every spot or town has profound history behind it. It is quite fascinating. Guests are fascinated by what they feel, see and touch. Since then, I focus on retaining the wide eyed curiosity like a child. I enjoy being a personal tour guide to guests.


Fukuoka is one of the largest city and the most convenient place in terms of access to popular spots, nature, and transportation. There are lots of well-kept secret spots as well. I cater to the every need of it’s guests. Please feel free to contact me and tell me what you would like on your awesome trip in Japan.


On my days off, I love to spend lots of time with my son and do outdoor activities together. For instance, go swimming, hiking, walking, playing badminton, tasting many kinds of gourmet and watch movies like action, comedy, and Sci-Fi.

“ The best guide who knows what travel and life is ”

She introduced us restaurants that local people would go. For me, travelling is getting to know life and values of the people I visit. In that part, it was very lucky for me to meet her through triplelight.

Tomoko:

Thank you for your heartwarming comment!! It was my pleasure to be your son’s & your guide. Also I was really lucky to have you as my guests. Your curiosity and gratitude for Japanese culture & food made my day!! Thank you!!!
