I was born in Shiga next to Kyoto and now live in Yokohama, which is located between Tokyo and Kamakura,with my family and two cats. My hobby is swimming, playing a piano and skiing. When l was a university student I went to US as a member of a goodwill envoy and there I had unforgettable experiences with local people. I helped my host mother get dressed in kimono and her smile was my plesure. I believe the hospitality I had got there pushed me to work as a guide.
I got National Guide Certificate in 2014. Since then I always tried to make guests satisfied,and have good memories of Japan.

“ Great Tour ”

Yoko is an excellent guide, who demonstrated very good knowledge. She was extremely helpful and attentive to our needs.


Thank you for your message. It was nice meeting you and I had a good time with you very much. Unfortunately It was a rainy day but you tried to see and know about Japan. It was my pleasure that I could help you. I hope you will enjoy your cruise! Take care yourselves. Yoko
