About

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.

“ Tour of Yokyo ”

Chiaki was an excellent guide, tailoring a programme of sightseeing around the time we had available. We saw a huge amount in a limited time thanks to Chiaki and would highly recommend her.

Chiaki:

Thank you for your wonderful review, Theresa. Although we had short tour for about six hours, we had beautiful day and a fun time. I hope you will have great success in your business and visit Japan again in the near future. Best wishes to you, Julian and Gloria!

“ Amazing time and a perfect guide ”

Arigato Chiaki-san! We had such an amazing time these two days with Chiaki-san. She was a perfect guide and we loved spending time with here and enjoyed the various locations that she took us to. She provided us with a detailed schedule and also gave us perfect directions to get from Haneda airport to our Asakusa hotel. She knew all the in-and-outs of the public transport to shortcuts to costs. She was always on time and ensured we spent ample time at our sightseeing spots. At the same time, she was cognizant of the time. Both our daughters immediately gelled with her. She was caring and she became part of our family in those two days. She also took us to various food spots and it was all delicious. It was a great experience and we are so glad and honored that we met Chiaki-san and spent t... read more

Chiaki:

Arigato Mahesh-san, for your warm and detailed review! I’m honored and happy that I was selected to be your guide and family member in Japan. Your two girls are lovely just like their names “shining stars” and I enjoyed being with them. I miss all of you! Arigato for the happy two days. I'm looking for the next opportunity to see you again!
