Hi! I'm Yukari.
I'm a government licensed guide of Kanazawa city.(Kanazawa Visitor's Host)
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 14years in total.(4years in my childhood and 10years since I married. )
I have 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 I'd like to do something which make their trip more memorable.
This is the reason I took the license of Kanazawa Visitor's Host and started a local tour guide.
Although I've just started as a tour guide in 2018,I sincerely enjoy making a plan that every single guest would be able to make the day here in Kanazawa 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).

From the onset Yukari was exceptional! Prompt replies to our emails and enquiries regarding our one day trip to Kanazawa. We were a family of four from Australia on our second trip to Japan, with two older children, 19 & 15 and had decided to do a day trip to Kanazawa from Nozawa Onsen, where we were having a ski holiday. Yukari organised a proposed agenda based on our needs, which somehow managed to include every site we wanted to visit plus more. We arrived on the Shinkansen at 9.30am, and were warmly greeted by Yukari at the station. From that moment, we relaxed and enjoyed the sites and delights of Kanazawa with Yukari leading the way! Yukari was a great guide with much historical and cultural knowledge to share at each location, and made it enjoyable and relevant for the whole family.... read more
Thank you very much for your wonderful review!! I am grateful that I was also able to enjoyed the special day with you and your family in Kanazawa. Also I am so happy to know that your trip in Japan had become memorable and I had been able to part of it. I hope I would be able to welcome you all in the future again. Best wishes to you all.
We had a great time with Yukari! She planned a wonderful day tour of Kanazawa and taught us so much about the city. We would highly recommend her.
Thank you very much for the review! I was also able to enjoy a wonderful day with you. I am very pleased that you had enjoyed the tour. I hope you would come to Kanazawa again!
Hiring Yukari is one of the best decision I made for our trip to Japan. Luckily, my husband stumbled upon the triple lights website just days before our trip. Otherwise, our day in Kanazawa will not be as enjoyable. Yukari is punctual yet flexible, professional yet friendly and generous. Communication with her through triple lights was a breeze and nothing was too much trouble for her. Walking with her around Kanazawa was like having an old friend showed us around her town. My sons love her as well. She made our 8 hour walking trip very enjoyable and paced it perfectly, even with a 9 year old in tow. We hit all of the tourist attractions, scored exquisite souvenirs and had yummy local food and snacks without feeling rushed. At the end of our tour, even when we were running a hour late, Yuk... read more

Yukari is a great guide! She was very communicative and open even to last minute changes. She did a great job!
Hi Zachary, Thank you very much for the review! The tour went really well with your cooperation!
We had a very short visit to Kanazawa as a family and Yukari helped us make the most of that. She was very well organised and punctual and had designed a great itinerary for us. Her English is good and she was very helpful and friendly in answering all our questions and making sure all our needs were met. In only 3 hours we got an overview of the key sights of Kanazawa.
Hi Aileen, Thank you very much for writing the review! We could go along all the way as I planed was possible by all of your family's cooperation. I truely appriciate that. If you have a chance,please come visit Kanazawa again! Yukari
