Hi, I'm Ritsuko, a national licensed tour guide. I was born and raised in Tokyo.
As Tokyo is a city of many faces, I hope you will discover your hidden gems during the tour.
I love to wander around the shops and places in downtown and one of my hobby is to find daily use products made in Japan. So I can select unique souvenirs for you within your budget!
I am football mad and have been to every FIFA World Cup except one tournament since 1998.
I also love to go island hopping in Asia. That's why I have been to over 30 countries.
Wherever I went, people were so kind to me. So, it's my turn.
I will do my best to make your tour a memorable one!
Hope to hearing from you soon.

Ritsuko is an excellent guide. I am glad I booked her. I was nervous being a solo traveler. She basically showed me how to use the subway, got me a subway a pass only for tourists which is a difficult office to fine in the Metro. She showed me how to use the metro to get back to Narita which took away many concerns and there are so many options-to do so in Tokyo. She brought me information about the art galleries in Euno Park. As we communicated before had art was an interest of mine. She ifs very friendly and very sensitive to travellers questions. I highly recommend her.
Hi Stew, thank you so much for your kind words! I am glad to be of your help. As Ueno park is home to some of the most famous and important museums in Tokyo, I hope you had a good time there. Please come back to Tokyo, maybe cherry blossom season:) Looking forward to serving you again.
I had such a wonderful time with Ritauko-san! Our first stop was Teamlabs Borderless - as a solo traveler it was very special to have Ritsuko-san to go with! After an awesome sushi lunch we had a day of shopping. Thank you for making the day special!
Hi Lisa-san, I appreciate your kind words. Thank you so much! It's MY pleasure to spend the day with you. It was so much fun and I almost forgot I was at work. Please come back to Japan and I hope our paths will cross again someday!
