Hello, I'm Yoko. I was born and brought up in Ashikaga, Tochigi prefecture (80 km north from Tokyo) and I've lived in Tokyo for more than 20 years.
I love traveling, both overseas and inside Japan. After I visited other countries and saw many local cultures there, I realized that Japan has a variety of unique cultures with a lot of tourist attractions.
I hope you enjoy your stay in Japan. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!

Spent 2 days with Yoko and she was great. Yoko was informative and very accommodating and such a pleasant lady. We enjoyed our time with her very much. Yoko gave us some treats at the end of our tour and that was so sweet and considerate of her. I highly recommend Yoko.
I was so pleased with my arrangement and experience with Yoko San. We had a previous 2 days with another wonderful guide, so had seen a few places already. Yoko San took us back to Asakusa at my request as my partner had just arrived. I was thrilled that we saw a slightly different aspect of Asakusa, including a view looking down to the markets and Sensoji Temple. After visiting the Imperial Palace grounds we ( including 17 yo son who enjoyed the guided experience a lot too) had an absolutely delectable ramen meal for lunch in Maranouchi, thanks to Yoko’s excellent recommendation! Yoko San showed us a great viewing spot to look over the vast Tokyo Station. We were lucky to enjoy the Meiji Shrine ( seeing a wedding party was a bonus) and the fabulous iris gardens in full bloom.

Thank you so much for such a fabulous review, Sonja-san! I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I also had a lovely time with all of you. It was my first time to see beautiful irises in the gardens of Meiji Jingu shrine. I really enjoyed the irises and the gardens with you, thank you for giving me such a lovely opportunity! Talking with you about a lot of things was really interesting and fun. I'm grateful for all of your kindness. I hope you come to Japan again in the near future and would like to see you again then! Thank you again and please take care!
Yoko was a very pleasant and knowledgeable and outstanding guide who made the day very enjoyable. She prepared an excellent itinerary based on our requirements. We saw so much in one day. Sorry for the delay. We have had very limited internet connection. Thanks to yoko for a day in Tokyo we will never forget and enjoyed the food where she took us for lunch.
Thank you so much for taking your time to post such a wonderful review, Anup! I'm glad to hear that the tour would meet your expectations. I also had a lovely time with you and your family. All of you are very nice, I'm grateful for your kindness. I hope you had a lovely journey in Japan. I hope you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then. Please take care.
It was such a lovely day, we had a great time with Yoko-san showing us around Ashikaga Gakko, Bannaji Temple and Ashikaga Flower Park. Yoko-san took care of the express train reservations, guiding us from Tokyo Metro to Tobu Line, everything went smoothly. Both my husband and I are so happy we made a new friend with Yoko-san, it was like having a friend showing us her hometown. Even though we were not able to view the wisteria flowers in full bloom at the flower park, we still had a great time visiting the park. Yoko-san's attention to details is very impressive, we highly recommend her as a private guide for your next trip to Tokyo.
Thank you so much for your lovely review, Elaine-san! Though we missed the opportunity to see the beautiful wisteria at Ashikaga Flower Park, we had a great time there viewing a variety of roses and other beautiful flowers. Actually that was my first time to see the roses in the park and was a lovely opportunity for me. Thank you. Both of you are very nice so that I felt as if I had been an old friend of you. Talking about many things with you are really interesting and fun to me. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. I hope you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then. Thank you again and please take care.
Yoko exceeded expectations during our private tour to Ashikaga Flower Park! She was well organized, excellent communication before/during/after the tour, thoughtful, and knowledgeable of the area. Our 8-month-old even got attached to her sunny disposition! We are very happy to have enjoyed our time viewing wisteria with Yoko! It was a beautiful experience and recommend to everyone.
Thank you so much for your fabulous review, Erin! I had a lovely time with you and all of your family. Your daughter is very adorable, playing with her was really fun to me. Unfortunately the wisteria season was almost over, but I'm glad that you enjoyed the park with a lot of other flowers. I'm grateful for all of your thoughtfulness. I hope you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then. I'd like to see your daughter after she grows up! Thank you again and please take care.
