Hello, nice to meet you. I'm Noriko.
I'm a professional tour guide and have been working for the biggest travel company in Japan since 2007. So far, I have engaged various kinds of tours. I love my job, but as a company's tour guide, I must follow the determined itineraries. So, although I have learned and experienced lots of things in 11 years, I couldn't introduce some (many) of them to my guests. I have been sorry about it. But now, in this triplelights, I can offer my guests various kinds of things and places in Japan by making use of my knowledge and experiences.
I was born, grew up, and still live in Tokyo with my husband, son, and a dog. Our family love traveling and enjoy skiing. I love history very much and have the second grade of Japanese History Examination (The examination to judge comprehensing and recognizing ability for human history). I also love drawing manga, cartoons and shopping.
I'm sure I can help you to learn, understand, and experience Japan. Please contact me. I'm looking forward to seeing you.

We had a wonderful time going around with Noriko. She was patient and helped us make a tour suited for the family. We went around Tsukiji Market and was able to eat some really good fresh seafood. My little girl was able to wear a Kimono around Asakusa and spend the day like a cute little Japanese Girl. We wish we had more hours and days to go around with her. I think going around other parts of Tokyo with Noriko would be fun! Until the next trip to Tokyo!!
Thank you so much for your great review, Michelle. I was very happy to spent time with you, especially with your cute kids. Your girl was fascinated by the people around her in Asakusa. I hope you will come to Japan again and if you'd like, let me introduce you other interesting spots. Japan is full of attractive things and places. I'm looking forward to seeing you again.
