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 13years in total.(4years in my childhood and 9years 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).

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
Yukari accommodated our request for a timing change due to the typhoon. We ended up with a perfect sunny afternoon! She took us efficiently through the gardens, castles, and dwellings in Kanazawa. Open and kind, we enjoyed sharing with her!
Thank you very much for the review! It was a lucky of us to be able to enjoy the city with a perfect sunny. Hope you enjoy fully in Kanazawa and the rest of your stay in Japan!
I hired Yukari to take me to an artist studio in Kanazawa and to translate his presentation. She has done an excellent job. She is sweet, personable, trying hard, and totally recommended.
Hello Daniella, Thank you very much for the review! It was a great experience to me,as well. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Also I hope you would be able to meet your cute dog and relieve soon.
In developing a tour for our interests, Yukari advised in advance certain sites closed that day so that we two couples might visit them on our own. Everywhere we went together, walking or by bus - Nagamachi Samaritan District and Nomira-ku House; Museum for Traditional Products and Crafts; Kenroku-en Garden; Higashi Chaya District and Sakuda Gold Leaf - Yukari clearly explained history, context and pointed out details we could not have appreciated without her. The insights she provided definitely added value. Yukari is a lovely person, truly interested in presenting Kanazwa to her guests. She also took us for a delicious Japanese lunch and later for matcha in an historic teahouse. Our tour took longer than anticipated, yet she did not end it at or soon after the appointed time,... read more
