Hello, everyone! I'm Naoko, a national government licensed guide interpreter in English.
I grew up in Shizuoka, near Mt.Fuji, and I live in Yokohama now.
I like to travel around Japan with my family, I am trying to conquer all 47 prefectures in Japan with my children. We have been to 40 out of the 47 prefectures in Japan.
I want to introduce not only beautiful famous spots in Japan but also our daily life, what we eat, where we go shopping, where children love to go.
I am looking forward to seeing you in Japan!

Naoko-san was wonderful - from specially arranging our schedule then meeting us at the cosplay studio where we were; she also waited patiently for us to finish and then took us to the Maid Cafe which we really wanted to experience. It was definitely a must do when in Akihabara...oddly wonderful and it's just one of those classic Japanese experience we had to have. We couldn't have done it without Naoko-san as it can be quite complex and wouldn't have been the same if we navigated on our own. Thank you so much Naoko-san! It was fun hanging out with you and learning about Akihabara!
We had a great afternoon with Naoko! In our email exchange before the visit, she gathered information about our interests and kids’ ages, and designed a tour that fit us perfectly. We went toy shopping in Akihabara and found just what the kids were looking for, and then followed it up with a visit to a family-friendly maid cafe. We had a lovely time with Naoko and would definitely recommend her to you!
Miranda! Thank you so much for your kind message. I feel so happy that you and your daughters were satisfied with the tour. Please give my best regards to your lovely princesses!
Thanks to her guide we were able to enjoy Tokyo fully.
Thank you very much for having me as your guide! I myself had a great time ,too!
