About

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!

“ Highly recommend Hiroko!! ”

Myself and two daughters spent two days with Hiroko and I highly recommend for anyone visiting Tokyo. Hiroko is a wonderful guide and very patient! Travelling alone with children in a foreign country can be daunting and exhausting but with Hiroko's help we felt comfortable and confident (but still exhausted) Hiroko helped us navigate the train system so we could continue to use after our time with her. We saw many things that were on my "To Do" list and I especially enjoyed the garden and boat tour she suggested. Thank you Hiroko.

Hiroko:

Thank you so much for your awesome review, Denise. I am so glad to know that I was a little bit of your help. But the most amazing thing was your enthusiasm and passion to let your kids see many interesting things in a foreign country. I’m sure your kids will remember the trip and your love forever!! I hope you take care of your health and come back to Japan again someday :D Hiroko

“ Friendly and knowledgable ”

I spent an evening with Hiroko san on a Shimbashi evening tour. We had a very nice evening, seeing sights around Shimbashi and Shidome. Finally, we had a karaoke evening, and Hiroko san introduced me to Japanese songs which sounded very melodious and which I thoroughly enjoyed. ありがとう😊 ひろこ さん。 ジョン

Hiroko:

John san, thank you very much for your warm review! I was impressed by your deep knowledge about our culture and enthusiasm about language learning. So we ended up such a fun Karaoke night, all thanks to you!! Please come back after 2020 and stop by Tokyo again:D Hiroko

“ Discovery of Hakone ”

Hiroko was very punctual, came prepared for our day together. Since rain was forecasted, she has 2 umbrellas for us. She also bought two bus cards, saving us from looking for correct coin amount every time we board the bus. We visited gardens in bloom w azaleas, saw a stunning exhibition in a museum. We then took the bus to Ashi lake. She had planned a boat excursion but we declined due to bad weather. We then visited the local shop where wooden secret boxes were made, fascinating. Thank you Hiroko for a day well spent! She is

Hiroko:

Thank you for your warmest review, John and Trini :D Your smile was shining on me during the tour although it was rainy all day!! For me, It was really enjoyable time to chat with you along the bus ride and learn basic French from you;) I hope you will enjoy more in Kyoto and someday come back to Hakone!! Hiroko

“ We would have been lost without Hiroko! ”

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.

Hiroko:

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!
