I was raised in several places, such as Tokyo, Yokohama, Kobe, Osaka, and Nagoya.
After my professional sales experience for a business machinery company in Yokohama, I pursued an opportunity to teach in China.
I worked as a Japanese teacher to foreigners in Shanghai.
The longer I lived abroad, the more I came to appreciate the unique aspects of Japanese culture. So I started learning English and Chinese to become a bridge to help bring foreign visitors closer to Japanese culture.
I would be horored to be your guide as you tour our historically rich country. I am looking forward to traveling Japan with you. Thank you.

“ A fun day in Tokyo! ”

I just asked my daughters what they thought of the tour Ai tailored for their one day Tokyo tour, and they said “very, very, very, very good!” Ai did a great job of organising things we wanted to do, and that we wouldn’t have been able to organise ourselves prior. Her Command of the English language is excellent, and she was incredibly thoughtful and organised. A lovely person to spend the day with. Thanks Ai for making out Tokyo trip so memorable.


Dear Belinda, thank you very much for your comment! All of your family looked very gorgeous in Kimono and their manners during tea ceremony lesson were so beautiful! I was very happy to serve you as a guide. I won’t forget all of your smiles! I wish you all the best for your new job. Please take care and hope I can see you again! Ai

“ Tokyo highlights ”

Ai-San was brilliant. We are a family, with 3 kids under 12. She was so lovely, patient, knowledgeable and the kids loved her. Ai-San introduced us to Tokyo and gave us the confidence to explore the city on our own. We highly recommend Ai-San.


Thank you so much for such a wonderful review for me, Vanessa! I loved your 3 children a lot, too. Each child has their own charms and very adorable 😍 Hope you found the seats soon at the sushi restaurant after our tour and also hope you enjoyed powder-snow skiing at Tomamu resort. ❄️ Thank you again for coming to Japan.

“ Great day in Tokyo ”

We had Ai show us around some of Tokyo on our recent trip and she was a fantastic tour guide that we all loved, especially our 8 year old girls! She was punctual, sweet, considerate and knew her away around Tokyo very well! Her English was great which made learning about Tokyo a breeze! Ai was very easy to communicate with before our trip and helped plan a perfect itinerary for our day together based on our interests and needs - and she was very flexible when we wanted to switch a couple of things around while on the tour. Highly recommend booking Ai as your Tokyo tour guide, we're so glad we did!


Dear Rachel, thank you so much for taking your time to give me the review! Your girls are very pretty and I enjoyed talking and taking them around Tokyo. Hope you enjoyed your journey in Japan! Let’s keep in touch! I’m looking forward to seeing you all again☆ Ai

“ Tour of Tokyo ”

Ai is amazing! We booked Ai for two tours. The first was a tour of Tokyo and the second was hiking. The tour of Tokyo was amazing! Ai showed us some amazing places. I told Ai that I wanted to propose to my girlfriend while I was there, and we discussed when and were would be a good time and she suggested a few places I could do it. When I finally proposed, Ai was able to capture it on video and send it to us! It was perfect! The second tour was hiking. Unfortunately my fiancee got the stomach flu and we were unable to go, and instead had to go to the doctor. Ai offered to come with us and translate and help fill out paperwork that was in Japanese. Becsuse of her we were able to get the correct treatment at the doctor! She went above and beyond what I would expect any tour guide to... read more


Dear Ian, thank you so much for the warm review for me. The proposal plan was so exciting and I was very honored to support your big event in Tokyo!! You and Gwen were so beautiful on the rooftop in the center of Tokyo that I felt as if I was watching a scene from a movie... I hope she is completely fine now and both of you have arrived in your hometown safely. Let’s go hiking next time! Thank you so much for choosing me as a guide in Tokyo. Best Wishes to a Special Couple!

“ Very understandable and accomodating guide ”

We had a half day tour with Ai. As our group of 10 comprises of young children and elderly, Ai ensures everyone is together and sets a reasonable pace for the group. She also brought us to a wonderful ramen restaurant in Harajuku and showed us the wonderful sights of Tsukiji outer market. We have no issue with understanding her spoken language and had a great time with her.


Thank you Cal, for taking your time to give me a review! I also spent a wonderful time with you. Thank you so much. I hope you enjoyed your tour in Japan. Thank you for choosing Japan for your big family reunion. I hope I can see you and show you around Tokyo again! Ai
