Hi, I am Nobu, a national 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!

Had a great afternoon with Nobu at a very last minute booking. He took us to the most popular Tokyo attractions and was very helpful showing us how the trains worked and with our Shinkansen bookings. Very informative about the city and easy to get on with.
I booked my trip with less than a day notice and I had about a nine hour layover in Narita. Nobu was so unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable and it was great to see so many places in such a short time! I definitely can not wait to go back to Japan! Nobu was so nice and I definitely would recommend for anyone who would like a fun and educational time!!! Thanks Nobu!!!
Thank you very much for your review, Elena. I am glad to know that you enjoyed the tour with me. I am also looking forward to meeting you again in Japan. Nobu
Did a very good job, very good English, excellent knowledge about places visited
Thank you very much for your review, Franz. I hope you can see the beautiful Mt. Fuji for the next chance. Nobu
We needed both a guide and driver to pick us and our luggage up at the end of a cruise. Nobu arranged for the car and driver, arrived promptly at the cruise terminal at the time agreed upon and was extremely flexible with our itinerary. We couldn't have asked for a better one day tour of Tokyo. Nobu is a very kind and knowledgable man and we would not hesitate to hire him again. He even helped us with our luggage at our hotel at the end of the day. Thanks again for a great day, Nobu!
Thank you very much for your review, Kathy. I am glad to know that you were satisfied with the tour with me. I am Looking Forward to seeing you again in the future! Nobu
I contacted seven different tour guides, both the top rated guides on this site and on two other sites to take us on a Tokyo G-cans tour. None of the guides I contacted would take us, as the tour was slightly out of the ordinary for them...Thankfully this site put me in touch with the guide Nobu-san and he happily organised the whole tour for us. Nobu planned it perfectly, despite never having been there before. He was on-time to meet us, quietly spoken, very friendly and did well to translate for us while on the tour. We had a great time. I would strongly suggest Nobu, particularly if you want to do something slightly different to all the other tourists in Japan. Thanks again Nobu!
Thank you very much for your review, Kirk. It was an exciting tour for me, too. It is my pleasure to guide guests to different places from standard Tourist courses because I can learn a lot from such tours. Thank you again for giving me a chance to visit G-cans, Kirk. Nobu
