My name is Kumiko.
I used to live in New York and London and worked for US companies for many years. Based on my experience, I recognize that Japan is a fascinating country, but at the same time it is unique in many ways. Tokyo, as a capital of Japan, is a unique and diverse mix of cutting edge technology, traditional culture and Western influences.
As a guide, I'd like to explain my guests about Japanese culture as well as background and introduce popular places and foods. I think most visitors coming to Japan are hoping both to enjoy themselves and also have a meaningful encounter with a different culture.
I am looking forward to helping you explore my city and enjoy everything it has to offer.

Thanks to Kumiko for getting me around while it was raining. We managed to see the Senso-ji temple and walk through the laneways before the rain got heavy. Then we made our way to a few shopping centers to stay dry before returning. The rain made for some great photos!!! I thoroughly enjoyed my day!!
Thank you for your feedback. I WAS reallu lucky to have an opportunity to see you and show you Tokyo in a rain! Please come back with your daughters ! Best regards, Kumiko
Kumiko was my guide for a day in Kamakura. I found her to be very pleasant, warm, and interestng. Her knowledge of the are was impressive. She is very much a great lady and I was fortunate to have her as my guide.
