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.

“ Toyko highlights ”

Our family had an AMAZING 2 days with Ai. We sent her information on the areas we wanted to visit and the things we wanted to experience while in Tokyo. She planned everything perfectly! We had a great itinerary and a wonderful trip. Thank you, Ai!


Dear Vanessa, thank you so much for your kind review. The tours with you were very special for me, too. The tea ceremony lesson was very rare opportunity and I appreciate you giving the great request. Thank you for coming to Japan. I hope I will be able to see you all again! Ai

“ Tokyo 1 day tour ”

Great personality and very amenable to our needs. Thoroughly enjoyed the day


Thank you for giving me a great review, Ramesh. I have been thinking you were enjoying great views in Nikko under the blue sky. Please enjoy the rest of stay in Japan! Ai.

“ I would have been lost without Ai... ”

We had the pleasure of Ai guiding us around Tokyo and then Hakone. She guided us through all kinds of transportation, found the best places for meals, and made our time as enjoyable as possible. Although it was not our first time in Japan, this was the first time we visited Tokyo and Hakone so having a professional and fun guide like Ai made a huge difference. Even before arriving in Japan, Ai was making sure our route to Hakone was available and safe. Given that the typhoon had changed some of the routes to Hakone, having Ai's help proved invaluable. I really appreciated her attention to detail and planning leading up to our arrival. I felt much better knowing Ai was going to be there to help us. Then when we did arrive, Ai did not disappoint in getting us to where we needed to go! ... read more


Thank you Josh, for a wonderful remark for me despite of being busy. You contacted me more than 1 month before our tour and I felt we were already like friends ! You said this trip is your pre-honeymoon. Congratulations on your marriage. I wish you both happiness for many years to come💞Ai

“ Fantastic! Made the day so much better. ”

I brought my company to Japan for a summit involving many other businesses. Ai was my translator on the first day. Everything was so hectic, because it was our first time, but not only did Ai make communication easy, she helped problem solve all of our issues throughout the day. In the end, it was an easy event despite the confusing start. Thank you, Ai!!


Thank you so much for the quick review for me, Asher. The event was very interesting and I also enjoyed with cute characters a lot. You are very brave because I think doing new thing especially in other countries is very challenging. I believe the seeds you sowed this weekend will germinate and bloom in the near future🌱Thank you for choosing me as one of your supporters. I’m looking forward to working for you again. Ai

“ 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 ☆
