My schedule of this year 2019 has NOT been finalized.

When you need me for your trip in Japan, please check my tour page named “Customized Tour ONLY for You” before inquires. In which you’ll guess how you’ll be guided and how much it’ll cost you in addition to guide fees.

After the first contact from you, I’ll ask you some questions. For example, what are you MOST INTERESTED in Japan? Are you good walkers? Would you tell me your food preferences?
It won’t take you so long. I just need some information for making better plans. I’d appreciate it if you’d give me such information at first contact. Then it may save your time and energy.

Just contact me, and I'll reply to you ASAP!

I do look forward to your inquiries.

Thank you!

Hi! I’m from Kyushu and now have lived in and around Tokyo for nearly 10 years. I specialize in traditional Japanese culture, like Japanese tea ceremony and calligraphy. I also like to go and watch traditional Japanese stage performances, like Kabuki, even though I haven't had enough time so far. I’m enthusiastic about introducing popular tourist spots as well as cultural ones almost across Japan. So, I always try to upgrade knowledge about inbound tourism and my communicative skills in English. Plus, I can't live without cheap-but-DELICIOUS-local foods and Japanese sweets! Also, I'm good at discovering 'hidden gems,' including deep sightseeing spots, restaurants, cafes, and even washrooms! If you want me to customize your private tour in Japan, let me help you. If you book my guided tour in and around Tokyo, I'll do my best like your close friends so you will be happy! I really look forward to seeing you soon! :-D

“ Very helpful guide ”

Very helpful in taking care of our large group .Knowledgeable guide , only needs to improve her spoken english .


Hello Tuan, I’ve been missing you all! How have you been? Did you enjoy your stay in other places in Japan? Thank you for your review on my tour! I didn’t expect I would get such a high good review! I’m sorry that we had to skip Akihabara in Tokyo & the Shinkyo Bridge in Nikko. Also, I guess you were disappointed we could see less Autumn leaves at Kegon Waterfalls. Also, I appreciated your feedback about my spoken English! I’ll definitely improve it so everyone will be more interested in Japan! Anyway, did you get those photos I took in Nikko Toshogu Shrine? If not, please let me know. Hope you’re all well and say hello to the others, please! Respectfully, Akemi
