About

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!

“ Nobu was Great ”

Nobu was a great tour guide. He showed us around to some key places in the Tokyo area. Fun day with a knowledgeable and neat guide.

“ Tokyo & Hakone visit ”

Nobu is mature, seasoned, conscientious, very knowledgeable guide.He helped us with airport transfers, visit to Hakone and with bullet train tickets. Without his help, we would have been lost in maze of logistics. We were a group of 9 boisterous, excited( by Tokyo standards) Indians wanting to experience Tokyo. Nobu handled all our requests, painstakingly answered all our questions, patiently listened to us. We had a great time👍👍

“ Great and helpful guide. ”

My family and I had a great time with Nobu. He managed our trip to the Mt.Fuji area well and everything went smoothly. He also tried his best to help us book a taxi to the train station a few days after our trip with him was over which was very nice of him to do.

“ Did exactly what we requested ”

Sorry for delay...we have been on a cruise ship from Yokohama and have had terrible internet connection. Close to USA now and internet better. Nobu was the best. He listened to us and arranged to take us exactly where we wanted to go and to the places we really wanted to see. It appears many guides will take you only to the "hot spots", but we had several requests that weren't necessarily the most requested. Nobu listened and provided exactly what we wanted in a day of touring Tokyo, which by the way, is an incredible city....well worth a full day or more of exploring. If ever back in Tokyo, I would pick Nobu again over anyone else. Thank you for a day we will never forget....really liked and enjoyed where he took us for lunch...fantastic food.
