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.

“ Ai is the Best ! ”

My 9 yr old son and I had the best day with Ai! It was our 1st time in Japan and we wanted to be able to see all the sights and make the most use of our time. Once we booked, Ai emailed us right away asking what our interests are and the sights we wanted to visit . She gave suggestions based on my email and the night before our tour , she emailed again confirming all details. We met at our hotel and started the tour from there. She was SO nice and pleasant to be around. We were able to fit in so much. My son loved her too ! She was super patient with all of our questions . We went to the popular sights -- Senso-Ji Temple, Akihabara, Harajuku, Shibuya crossing, as well as some traditional spots -- we got to experience a Japanese arcade, had a great lunch and checked out some st... read more


Thank you so much Jennifer! I also miss you and Connor already so much... I felt happy just by looking at you enjoying and smiling yesterday. The time passed so fast that I didn’t want to finish our tour. I think that’s because your smile was very heartwarming and his eyes are very beautiful. He stopped at a lot of places when he found new things. He was very cute and I wanted to show him more places. I hope you will make a plan to go to Kyoto and enjoy different aspect of Japan. However, if you have time in Tokyo again, I am more than happy to see you and guide you again. Thank you for a memorable time for me, too. Please stay warm. Best regards, Ai ☆

“ Nice Day Out on the Town with Ai ”

Ai was energetic, friendly, and pleasant. She showed us Tokyo in one day. She was very flexible with our itinerary. As we walked through shopping areas she helped us with our purchase. We enjoyed her as our guide and recommend her without reservation.


Thank you for the review, Alex. We visited a lot places in a day. The picture of your job was the highlight of the day for me!! Hope you enjoyed the tour in Nikko and will enjoy the rest of journey in Japan. Please send my best regards to Nicole. Thank you for coming to Japan. Please come to Japan again with your child next time. Ai☆

“ One Day Highlights of Tokyo ”

Our group of 4 enjoyed a full day with Ai and we found her to be organized, enthusiastic and very accommodating making sure we had a thoroughly enjoyable day seeing all the highlights of Tokyo. She took lots of photos of us and helped us understand the amazing Japanese culture and history. She found a perfect spot to have lunch at a Sushi restaurant in the Fish Market. We used the subway to get around quickly and were treated to a water cruise from one sight down to the Japanese Garden viewing the Tokyo skyline. Her English was very good. We all thought she was knowledgable, thoughtful and made our day memorable.


Dear Holly, thank you so much for your review for me. I also enjoyed spending a wonderful time with you all! We visited many places in one day and there are still a lot of nice spots in Tokyo. I hope I’ll be able to see you and guide you again. Please send my best regards to Renay, Rod, and Barry. Best regards, Ai ☆

“ Our First Day in Tokyo ”

Ai is an excellent tour guide that I recommend with the highest regard and without reservation. She helped us navigate our way through our first day in Tokyo. What a joy to explore the city stress free. We loved the fish market, the cruise, and of the course the sites. Ai was very personable and added lots of interesting information to round out the experience. I am particularly grateful for her patience and support as we figured out how the train lines worked. And, with her eagerness to help us secure tickets at JR stations for ventures later in the week. Due to her help that first day, we were able to see more of Tokyo, and then Kyoto and Hiroshima with confidence and peace of mind. Ai thank you for a great day and such a positive start to our wonderful trip! We wish you the ver... read more


Thank you for taking your time to give me a wonderful review, Shelly. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed Japan a lot. I just want to say thank you for coming to Japan. I hope your husband gets better with his feet and JV also enjoyed staying here in Japan. I promise I’ll try to do my best to give you an opportunity to visit a sumo stable next time. I enjoyed spending an amazing time with you and JV. Please come visit Japan again. Thank you again for your kindness. Best regards, Ai 🌟
