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 goodwill envoy and there I had got unforgettable experiences with local people. Helping my host mother get dressed in kimono was one of them. These experiences made me think to become a guide in the long run.
I had got National Guide Certificate in 2014. Since then I always tried to make guests satisfied and hope they go back to their countries with good memories.

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
