Hi! I'm Yukari.
I'm a goverment licenced guide of Kanazawa city.
I'm originally born in Toyama.I had moved 2 times within Hokuriku region in my childhood for my fathers job.
I've been living in Ishikawa for 13years in total.(4years in my childhood and 9years since I married. )
I'm a family of 4 and raising 2 boys now.
Sometimes I work at Kanazawa guesthouse and enjoy meeting and talking with people from all over the world.
I love animals,nature,music,photos,camping,and good food.
So If you feel like I have a similar taste in those things to you,my tour will be able to bring you a satisfied explore.

Here in Kanazawa,the tourist have been increasing since the opening of Hokuriku Shinkansen in 2015. Many of the foreign tourists are walking around throughout the city holding their smartphone by hand.
Every time I see that scene,I feel that I'd like to do something which makes them more memorable experience.
This is the reason I took the license of Kanazawa visitor's guide and started being the local guide.
I've just started this,so I understand I'm not as perfect as an experienced national licensed guide.However I sincerely help you to make your day in here perfectly.

I have ever lived in
Toyama,Fukui,Ishikawa,Chiba,Tokyo (Japan),and Toronto (Canada).

I have ever been to USA (Seattle,LA,CA,NY) Australia (Cairns) New Zealand(Auckland) Korea,China,and Canada (many cities).

Let's find interesting things for yourself together!

“ More than I bargained fy ”

Yukari is a fountain of knowledge. I believe that her profile doesn’t do her justice. She managed to show me all the places I wanted to see plus a whole lot more and greatly organised. She should be in strategic planning. Yukari is a lovely lady and knows the details of everything you are seeing. And her little back street restaurant was genuinely Japanese and delicious. I wish her a fantastic career in tourism.


Thank you so much for your comments,Lucero. I'm happy that you had enjoyed the tour with me. I will keep on enjoying the tour! Yukari

“ The best of the best ”

Our full day tour with Yukari in Kanazawa was the highlight of a 13 day cruise around Japan. Yukari was able to assess both our interests and our level of energy to work out a perfect itinerary for our day in this beautiful city. An excellent combination of enthusiasm and informative Ness, and she truly made our excursion special.


Thank you so much for your warm comments.It was a very pleasant time for me too because you have shared your stories,beautiful photos and just being with lovely couple made me feel so happy. I hope someday you can come again with your family to Kanazawa.

“ Real Kanazawa ”

Yukari was a wonderful host. She not only brought us to see parts of Kanazawa that a tourist would not seek on their own, but also made us experience true Japan culture, sharing her own experiences with us. Her english was excellent and we encourage Yukari to seek a national licence so that other tourists would not only be guided by an excellent guide in Kanazawa, but across Japan. Thank you Yukari!


Dear Simon, Thank you for your considerate review. It truely helped me motivating. I was having a pleasant time with all of your family. Thank you for sharing the part of your treasures time in Japan with me!
