Hi! My name is Momoko. I am a nationally certified tour guide.
Having grown up in Osaka, I have been playing all around the Kansai area since I was a child. So please let me introduce you to this crazy, beautiful and sometimes weird country.
I am really interested in seeing Japanese culture from the perspective of a visitor: my husband is British and we always enjoy talking about Japanese culture. I hope I can provide you with a real Japanese experience, the kind that a normal tour would not give you.
I can create unique tour plans based on your interests. (I can also take memorable pictures with my fancy camera and share them with you later!)
Please feel free to ask me about my tours or any questions you have :)
Yes! If you need to make changes such as removing or adding someone to your booking or changing the date or time of your tour, contact us by phone or email
After you secure your booking, the starting and ending points of your tour can be customized to your convenience (ex.: your hotel, nearby stations, etc.). Don't worry, we will take care of you! Some tours may have an extra fee for this service, make sure to check the tour page.
After booking a tour, the guide will accept (or decline) your booking within 24 hours. Then you will be noticed by email from Triplelights.
The price is charged per group. Which means that you make a one-time payment for your entire group and the price will not change if it is less or more people.
Some guides accept extra people (more than the specified number) for an extra charge. Please check for the extras on the tour or booking page, or contact your guide directly to clarify.
No. Your tour is private, only for you and your family or friends, there will be no other group of tourists together in your tour.
Yes, but there will be additional charge for that and it is not by car. The guide will go pick you up using public transportations. For further details, please contact your guide directly.
Yes, you can and you may be able to get a discount if you are traveling alone. Price depends on which guide you choose.
I had the most amazing day exploring Osaka with Momoko. I learnt so much from her and found so many new areas to shop and visit. I especially loved the wood block printing activity and visiting the Owl cafe. I would definitely recommend Momoko, she is fantastic and would definitely love to explore more of Japan with her next time I visit.
Hi Kim. Thank you very much for your lovely comment! I had so much fun walking around Osaka with you. Really looking forward to the next tour tomorrow :)
Me and my family had the honour of spending 2 days with Momoko. She was funny, energetic, an excellent guide of the city and an expert in finding the best restaurants in town. Her English is perfect and is very good at planning things ahead of time. She could keep us well on our schedule which is hard to do when you're a group of 8 people. Would recommend her to anyone and would love to see her again if we are ever in Osaka.
Thank you for your lovely comment! I had a really nice time with you all and absolutely enjoyed being a guide :) I’m glad that you liked Osaka and am hoping to see you someday here again. I’ll keep searching for other interesting places :D
We took a tour of Kyoto with Momoko. We decided to hire a guide due to our tight schedule. Momoko was very thoughtful and kept us on schedule. We Would recommend her as a guide for tour of the Kyoto and Osaka region.
Thank you very much for having me! I really enjoyed touring with you and your family:) It went very smoothly thanks to your help. Happy travels!
