Hi, I am Nobu, a government certified tour guide.
My main areas as a guide are Tokyo and its Suburbs including Nikko, Hakone and Mt. Fuji. I can also guide you in Chiba, Ibaraki and Kanagawa.
Many people arrive at Narita Airport, but directly go to Tokyo or other areas.
However, there are many good places to visit near Narita.
I have been living in Chiba for more than 25 years and know about this area including Narita very well. If you arrive at or leave Narita Airport and have a half or full day in Narita, please contact me! I am willing to guide you in this area.
Another area I would like to guide you is Tohoku District, including my hometown, Iwate.
There are also many good places, but most people do not know about this District.
You can easily visit there in 2 hours by Shinkansen (Bullet Train).
If you have got a JR pass, you do not Need to worry about transportation fee.
If you are interested in this District, please contact me. I can help you to make a plan.
I am looking Forward to Meeting you soon in Japan!

We spent several days with Nobu in multiple cities. Nobu is extremely well organized and was an incredible resource on logistics. He is comfortable to be with and very kind. We enjoyed spending time with him and would absolutely use his services again.
Nobu was patient and courteous. We made some last minute changes to our agenda and he was able to accommodate us. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional tour guide in Japan.
I found Nobu, our friendly tour guide, through google since I did not have time to prepare for my trip to Tokyo. I'm glad I did since he was very accommodating even before my trip. Pressed with time, I relied on Nobu for suggested places to visit in Tokyo since it was our first time to visit Japan. He patiently answered all my questions promptly which gave me an inkling of the kind of service he provides. He was prompt, knowledgeable of the places we visited and his English is very good. With regret we did not visit all the places we planned because we decided to have side visits which were not in our itinerary. I should have followed Nobu's suggestions all the way but then again it all was still a great experience. Thank you for the great experience, Nobu!
Nobu was knowledgeable and helped us navigate the public transport system. We would never have been able to do so on our own. He took us to the major spots and was very flexible.
