About

Dear friends,

I was born in Tokyo and brought up in Yokohama, near Tokyo. All my ancestors were born in Tokyo for more than 300 years, as long as I know. I’ve been working in the field of education for a long time enjoying communicating with people of different generations, ethnic backgrounds, men & women, dogs, cats, birds and flowers, fish…….

Now, are you wondering about making your tour schedule ?
“I want to see cherry blossoms in Japan, but they die away so quickly…its’ over? Oh? Can I see them in Hakone, but, is Hakone far and also crowded? Umm….’’
“I want to see Tokyo, but the bay area in Yokohama looks charming, too. Can I see both? The time I can spend there is limited, umm….”
“Can I have some unique experience or workshop in Tokyo, not just a well-known sightseeing tour?”

If so, please let me know. I’ll suggest the following plan, as an example:

Day 1: (Afternoon) Half day tour in Tokyo; (Evening) Bay side cruise in Yokohama
Day 2: (Start early in the morning to Hakone)
Day 3: There are 2 choices: 1st option- Stay overnight in Hakone, enjoying hot springs, viewing gorgeous Mt. Fuji in the evening and early in the following morning (and move to Kyoto from Odawara station if you’re planning on the following day)/ 2nd option- Come back to Tokyo after the day trip and enjoy some unique cultural experiences.

Looking forward to seeing you in Japan, Ai

“ Awesome Tokyo toir ”

Ai is not just a great tour guide but also a lovely and caring person. She went out of her way to accommodate and help us with innovative ideas for our Tokyo tour as per our needs and requirements. Will definitely recommend her anytime and will be calling on her on our next trip to Japan next year. She is really the best! Thank you Ai.

Ai:

Hello I, S, A and A, I can’t find a word to express how I thank you for your extra-super comments. I also enjoyed myself with your beautiful family. Yes, be sure to meet again next year in Japan. Enjoy the rest of your days and have a safe trip back to U.S. Ai

“ Good memories ”

I appreciate the kindness to pick me up although hotel is a little far from downtown. I enjoyed conversation with Ai, she is an intelligent and friendly woman, she shared history of Yokohama and I enjoyed conversation walking around the beautiful seaside. Actually, purpose of this guide trip was learning something new as I wanted to hear real story and I think this trip was worth for it. Thank you for sharing and making good memories.

Ai:

Dear Youngsun Thank you for your good rating. It was nice talking with a young lady like you from Korea, which reminded me of my good old days with my Korean friend; chatting, laughing, sharing long evening with talking and studying. Sorry it took too long before we finally found a best evening view around the Minato-mirai area. Hoping you’ll have a brilliant future ahead of you. Best regards, Ai.

“ Tokyo April 2019 ”

Ai was absolutely wonderful. Very organized and easy to communicate with prior to the tour. She took us all over Tokyo to see everything that we had requested to see and do. We had such a great time and would definitely use her services again. Thank you so much!!

Ai:

Dear Kate, Thank you for your five-star rating !! It was wonderful two days I still recall when I close my eyes ー your lovely niece jumping under the full-bloom cherry blossoms, quietness at the precincts of Meiji Shrine we shared after a long walk ー actually, though, I’m worrying if you’re too exhausted to retrieve your energy because of our too much walk. Hoping I could meet your beautiful family again someday, somewhere. Best regards, Ai.

“ Awesome day in Hakone ”

We had a great day to see Fuji and enjoyed Hakone sightseeing. Ai planned an excellent day for the 3 of us finishing up with a wonderful Yakatori lunch.

Ai:

Hi Ralph, Thank you for your topmost rating! I really thank you for letting me have a wonderful time with you again in Hakone. Actually I never had a better view of Mt. Fuji than this time. Oh yes, Yakitori at the end of our trip was as good as Mt. Fuji. Best regards, Ai

“ A wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Ai met my husband and I at the cruise terminal in Yokohama. Ai listened to our interests and planned a wonderful day in and around Tokyo. We experienced so much more than would be possible on our own or on a tour. She was interesting and happy to adjust plans according to our interest. It was like having a friend take us out for the day. Thank you Ai!

Ai:

Dear Lauren, Thank you for your grading!! The happy moments we happened to share--walking along the farmers' market along the street near the port, picking up "the best fortune" at the shrine, pleasant short ride on Shinkansen, etc.-- will remain my unforgettable memories with you. Hoping you'd visit Onsen in Hakone next time you come to Japan. Take care! Best regards, Ai.
