Hello! My name is Tomoe. I'm a national licensed guide interpreter(English). I made my page here, TripleLights in October 2018. Thank you for finding me.

I was born and grew up in Otsu,Shiga, which is the next city of Kyoto.
I graduated from the university in Kyoto and lived there for four years due to my husband's job.
I like history and like to visit temples in Nara.
My hobby is to plan trips and have visited many cities and towns in Japan and abroad. One of my favorite places is the AIRPORT!!

I have enjoyed meeting and guiding people from abroad, to sightseeing spots in my country.
I really want many people from abroad to enjoy visiting many places and have wonderful experiences in my country. I'll be really happy if I can have such experiences with you!!
Please tell and ask me if there are any places which you want to visit and anything which you want to do in my country. I'll plan the trip only for you.

I am cheerful and always positive. I like to talk with people. I would like to talk with many people from many countries. Please tell me about your country, too!!
I'm looking forward to seeing you!!

* If you want, I will take you back to your hotel (within the time or with the extra hourly rate)
Or, I will show you how to go back to your hotel when we finish the tour.

* If you want, I will give you some advice about what to and where to eat your lunch/dinner.

“ Kyoto Family Tour ”

We had a great day with Tomoe in Kyoto. We are a family with three young boys, ages 5, 8, 10 and therefore have some particular needs. She is a very kind and responsive person. She took each of my inquiries very seriously and responded professionally and promptly. She listened carefully to my ideas of EVERYTHING I wanted to see/do in Kyoto (we spent about 3 days there in total, with 1 day with Tomoe on tour), and she helped me organize which things were best to do on our own, and which things were best to do with her. She answered all of my transportation questions, even making phone calls to double check prices and schedules. She is wonderful with kids and understands their needs and limitations very well. She brought snacks for my boys. She helped arrange a tea ceremony for us. She in... leer más

“ Day Trip With Tomor ”

Tomoe was a thoughtful, happy, friendly, experienced guide. We had only 5 hours in Kyoto where she showed us as much as she could in that time. She catered to every one of our wishes . Tomoe was very easy to talk to and we enjoyed comparing family and family photos over Coffee. We highly recommend Tomoe and wish her the very best. Joan and Wally Zolnier. Australia.


Dear Joan and Wally, Thank you very much for your warmhearted review. I had such a precious time with you. There are more wonderful places in Kyoto which I want to show you. I hope that you will come to Kyoto and I can see you again. (Please stay in Kyoto next time.) Please say hello to your wonderful family! Thank you very much again. TOMOE

“ Bright morning tour ”

I spent an enjoyable morning with Tomoe on a 4 hour tour of Higashiyama locations. Tomoe was receptive and flexible to my particular interests ensuring leisurely and informative visits to the places I especially wanted to go as well as including some surprises along the way.


Dear Mark, Thank you very much for your warmhearted review. I enjoyed the half day with you too. I was impressed that you know about Japan well, and want to visit many places in my country. I hope that you will visit Japan and I can see you again. Thank you very much for a wonderful meeting. TOMOE

“ A memorable and fun day in Kyoto ”

Tomoe made our first day in Kyoto so memorable and fun, despite the inclement weather. She was able to get us to all the sights on our bucket list and was very informative. She was easy going, friendly and enthusiastic throughout our day together. She clearly enjoys travel and food as much as we do! We met as strangers and ended the day as friends. Please visit us in Australia! Arigato Tonoe!


Dear Eva, Thank you very much for such a warmhearted review!! How precious time I could spend with you! I really thank you for having sent me a mail of inquiry, and having let me meet such a nice family like you! The day I met you became one of my importrant momories. I do hope that you will come to Kyoto again and I can see you some day! Please send me mails whenever you want. I miss all of your wonderful family!
