Welcome to Japan! My name is Chiaki. I’m a government licensed guide interpreter, a wife and mother of two grown-up children. I’ve been living in Tokyo for 30 years so I know the area well.

If you don’t want to miss popular “must see” places, wish to eat a variety of Japanese popular and delicious food, have particular interest in Japanese theatrical arts, architectures, gardens, tea ceremony and “kawaii” characters, or are tired of tourist spots and like to see the real life of people in Japan, I can help you.

My goal is to help you to make your stay in Japan as memorable and fulfilling as possible. If I can serve you to make your special trip more special, it will be my pleasure.

“ A wonderful afternoon ”

I had a lovely relaxing afternoon with Chiaki; it was like spending time with a friend. Chiaki is so knowledgeable and helped me to navigate Tokyo. She arrives well prepared but is also happy to change the itinerary as you go along, I shall certainly book another tour with Chiaki when I am next in Tokyo. Highly recommend.


Dear Karen, thank you for your kind review! You must be going back to your lovely 400 year old home now. I hope you have safe and smooth trip and am looking forward to seeing you in Japan again, having good time exchanging interesting conversations about the business environment. Thank you again!

“ Tokyo Tour With Chiaki ”

The tour with Chiaki was awesome! She is very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. I was completely overwhelmed by getting around by train in Tokyo and she completely taught me within an hour or so. After that I confidently could get anywhere in Tokyo. Would highly recommend booking a tour with Chiaki.


Konnichiwa Brooks! Arigato for your great review! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and the transportation experience. I had many memorable moments with you, especially when you tried various Japanese food. It was fun because each time you told me you were excited. Arigato again and I hope you continue your trip safely and smoothly!
