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.

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.
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!

I'm looking for the next opportunity to see you again!
Chiaki's knowledge about Tokyo is excellent and she planned and organized the tour really well, while always accommodating to our request. Our tour in Tokyo was so comfortable and relaxing, that it feels just like travelling with a friend. Highly recommended
Dear Didin, thank you for posting a great review! I really enjoyed myself guiding you and Linda around and talking about everything like family and experiences in the United States. I'm really looking forward to the next chance to show you around. Thank you for the joyful time!
Chiski was wonderful. Organized, thoughtful, flexible and knowledgeable. She was willing to work with our choices of itinerary. We greatly enjoyed our day with her.
Dear Carol, thank you for your warm comment! I'm really happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour because you said you had been waiting to visit Japan for ages. Please say hello to your husband. Thank you again!
