Hi, I would be very happy to help your precious time in Japan!
Feel free to contact me with your idea about things you would like to try on place, activities or food, etc.
Japan has so many options and sometimes it’s hard to decide alone.
So why don’t you we make your plan together:D
I think Japan has different culture uniquely developed on our own. Especially I am interested in our food.
We have a wide variety of very unique food; from fancy traditional Kaiseki multiple course meal (served with small beautiful plates or bowls!) to popular local food like Takoyaki (we eat octopus!!)
I would love to recommend you my favorite local restaurant or food shop according to a budget.
I am looking forward to meeting you soon!

Our family booked our first trip to Tokyo and we would have been totally lost without Hiroko! We fell in love with a very warm and friendly person, Hiroko! She is amazing! We cannot thank her enough for introducing us to Tokyo.
Thanks for the awesome review, Tanya ! I was really impressed how hard you prepared to make your family trip perfect. If my small effort helped you a bit, that would be my great pleasure! I was so lucky to have met you and your beautiful family at the very end of 2018!
My daughter and I spent a wonderful day with Hiroko. She picked us up at the airport and took us back at the end of the day It was a fun layover in Tokyo Would recommend her to anybody!!! We had a shopping day !!!!
Thank you so much for your kind word, Benjie. I was so lucky that I could be of help to such a beautiful family like you and your daughter. Your delightful personality made this trip more memorable and fun! Thank you!! I learnt a lot from you. Hiroko
Good correspondence leading up to the actual tour resulted in Hiroko organising a fully customised itinerary for me. My preferences (e.g. steady pace, like photographing details), likes (e.g. local food, meeting locals) and other interests (e.g. Sake brewery, railways, culture & history) were all fully considered to add to the main reason I wanted to visit Nikko - the Toshogu shrine. The surprise highlight was a home cooked meal by a local Nikko resident. There was good conversation, she was pleasant and attentive throughout
Thank you very much for your kind words, Christina. And all your advices you gave me I’ll never forget ! Yes I’ll keep my specialty on food and try my best to learn history and culture much better to make my guest/friend comfortable ;) I’m looking forward to meeting you again soon! Hiroko
Hiroko , is very personable, nice,and thoughtful. She goes out of her way to make the experience amazing. From the little Japanese snacks she brought for me to her knowledge of the area. You can't go wrong with using Hiroko
Thank you very much for your kind words, Brian. You are the one who made our trip fun and amazing! I really appreciate your kindness, curiosity and patience;) I’m looking forward to seeing you soon! Hiroko
