Hi, I'm Kazue (car-zoo-A). Thanks so much for viewing my profile!

I'm a native eastern Japanese, born in Kawaguchi City, Saitama (just north to Tokyo) and spent most of my student and working time in central Tokyo. So I'm able to show you attractions in and around Tokyo, especially the places loved by locals.

Tokyo is diverse - there are not only skyscrapers but also tranquil shrines and temples, real local "shitamachi" areas, and even mountains, vegetables fields... and I would like to help you enjoy these various aspects of Tokyo in your own style!

Personally I love Japanese food (especially miso soup and dessert "wagashi" like mochi), playing shamisen (a traditional Japanese musical instrument with three strings) and growing plants, which means I'm especially suitable for those who love mochi / kabuki / bonsai ;)

I'm looking forward to meeting you in Japan :)

I can create a customised tour expecially for you! Please feel free to send me a message and tell me what you would like to do in Japan.

“ When I told her I want to go to the school I attended as a child, she located it and initiated a call to them and then forward to me the web address. ”

It was a wonderful day. It began at the school I attended in K-2 grades and the the Dean of Admissions gave us an hour long tour and showed me the building where I would have had classes. It was rich. Then we visited a park near by that she thought was lovely and I probably went to as a child. On the way I spotted a pastry shop so we digressed for a treat and coffee.

It was a fun, delightful day with Kazue who had a good listening hear and sugg... read more
