Hi, I'm Ikumi, recently registered in TripleLights.
I myself enjoy traveling and the dinamic of travel for me is to mingle with local people and
glance their culture. I also like challenge new cuisine^^
So my trip concept (plans) will be different from typical ones.

“ A Japanese friend ”

Ikumi is a friendly and kind guide. She customized our itinerary based on what I provided as liked. She made some great recommendations and helped identify good deals. Wonderful day thanks to Ikumi!


Thank you so much for your kind comment. You gave me a clear picture of what you like to do for your tour so it helped me a lot to plan. I enjoyed our conversation and had a great time with you and your family.

“ Fantastic! ”

Ikumi is fantastic, met us at our hotel and guided us through the complex rail/subway system with ease. We enjoyed the tour of the Osaka castle and grounds, the Osaka Museum of Housing and Living, but just walking through the street vending and shops with Ikumi was excellent. Her knowledge of the local area was superb, and I loved all the great food.


Thank you so much for your warmth and kindness, Brad and Kathy. You guys are sweet couple and enjoyed guiding you! I'm so happy that you had a good time here and have a great image of Osaka, Kyoto, and Japan. You motivated me to be a better guide^^ I'll learn more about history and hopefully tell you guys more about it when you come back here in the future.
