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 :)

Kazue is a very friendly, warm and nice lady! She is very accomodating to my requests. I have a tight schedule and many thanks to her that I managed to squeeze in so many activites. I enjoyed her company! Many thanks Kazue!!!
Kazue showed my family of three a lot of wonderful sights in Nikko. She planned an itinerary to suit our interests and made good recommendations with regards to food and mode of transportation. I highly recommend Kazue as she is professional, informative, friendly and warm.
We had a wonderful time with Kazue. She was extremely helpful prior to our trip by helping us decide what to see while in Tokyo. She was a lot of fun and extremely knowledgeable. She made our trip memorable. Thank you Kazue!
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. And walked thru the neighborhood of Hiro-o. Then we went to the Japanese Traditional Crafts Aoyama Square that I said I want to see as I love to see pottery and crafts of a country. Had a wonderful lunch along the way and then went to the gardens of the Imperial Palace and concluded with going to a big toy story for gifts for grandchildren. It was a fun, delightful day with Kazue who had a good listening hear and suggestions for what interests me.
We had the most amazing day with Kazue during our tour in Tokyo! She is very friendly, polite and we really enjoyed our day with her visiting Tokyo! We contacted Kazue on her availability before arriving in Japan and she was very prompt to respond with ideas on how to customise our tour. After a few emails our plan was set and ready for our one-day (8hrs) tour of Tokyo. She introduced us to must-see areas, shrines/temples and food of Tokyo. The fact that she speaks perfect English, made our life so much easier when we needed a translator into Japanese. She made the first day of our honeymoon very special!
