About

Hi! I am Yoko, a friendly regional Licensed Guide Interpreter. This area is my home! This is why I've been sharing beauties of this prefecture with my guests from around the world.

This area is great fun: local, historical, culturally important, sometimes mysterious and beautiful! If you are already in love with Japan, then let me personalize your experience here. Visit the best places, venues, spots and locations with me. You will enjoy neighborhood full of hidden local treasures.

I am a mother of two girls. I'd be happy to welcome families and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask me any.

I also translate and teach English. And I am a host of an Internet radio program at a Local Tourism Association. I like meeting people and all these experiences allow me to be good at communicating as a guide.

I look forward to exploring this beautiful culture with you.

Thank you!
