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 area for 30 years so I know the area well.

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

I work as a tour guide to show you the city around according to your objective of traveling, interests, conditions, etc. I also carry out a tour for international visitors to experience ordinary life of the people. In either case, I want to hear your thoughts and ideas carefully for our day together before fixing the plan.

My goal is to help make your travel 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.

Chiaki is the most wonderful guide we have had the pleasure of working with. She is considerate, attentive and knowledgeable. She helped us beyond her regular guide duties and was truly a pleasure to spendvtime with.

“ Loved our day with Chiaki! ”

I cannot say enough about Chiaki. She was prepared, ready for our full schedule, kind and made sure we had a great day. Without her assistance we would have had a very different experience in our first day. She was flexible with small changes we made and willing to offer suggestions as well. Highly recommend her!


Dear Davena, Thank you so much for your warm review! I was very happy to be with you and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the day. I found out that visiting Takeshita Street with active young ladies is a great pleasure! I hope you spend your time in Japan smoothly and happily and go back home safely. Wish I can see you in your future visit! Thank you again!

“ An Excellent Day ”

It was a rainy day but Chiaki made it a great day. She was patient with my 2 young girls and took the time to explain many things to my 11 year old who asked a ton of questions. Chiaki was flexible and had a long list of possible things to do depending on the weather conditions. She was an excellent guide who I’d recommend to anyone.


Thank you Michael, for your wonderful comment! Although it was rainy, we had a great day and I enjoyed every moment with you and your beautiful family. Your daughters are so cute and active that they remind me my happy days traveling with young kids. I also had a great time talking with your wife. I hope you enjoy your long vacation in Japan and Canada and go back home safely. Thank you again!

“ She was so caring ”

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Chiaki, she was very flexible and went above and beyond to fulfill my needs, she helped me with my belongings during my hotel to hotel transfer Which she was not assigned to. She is very trustworthy and an absolutely fabulous guide. I will hire her any day.


Thank you so much for your excellent review, Chowdhury! I really enjoyed the days with you. Even we couldn't see the summit of Mt. Fuji, we spent a beautiful day in Kawaguchiko area. The trees were so fresh and green. I hope you have a good rest at home and visit Tokyo again in the near future with your family. Thank you again and please take care!
