About

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!

“ Great customized tour ”

We had requested a tour which didn’t hit the big sites but rather focused on some neighbourhoods. Yoko really delivered for us. We had a varied day seeing a variety of areas to give us a better feel for life in Tokyo. We found Yoko to be responsive to our requests both before and during the tour. She was quite informative and we learned a lot about the city and daily life. Her English is fine and she has a great sense of humour. Most importantly, she understood us and our interests. We would definitely want Yoko to guide us again should we return to Tokyo and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of our friends should they need a guide in Tokyo. Thanks Yoko.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for taking your time to post such a fabulous review, Jonathan! I'm very glad to hear that the tour met your expectations. The tour was a really good opportunity for me, thank you. I had a memorable and enjoyable time with all of you, I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. Talking with you was fun and interesting, We shared a lot of laughter. It was really nice meeting all of you. I hope you enjoy your journey in Japan and Asia. I hope you come to Tokyo again someday in the near future and see you then. Please take care and have a lovely journey.

“ Comprehensive Tokyo tour ”

We spent a day and a half with Yoko and felt like we got to see all the highlights of the city. She took us to shrines, gardens, fascinating neighborhoods, the fish market and even on a boat tour. We could never have accomplished this on our own. Great tour!

Yoko:

Thank you so much for posting a wonderful review, Lori. I'm glad to hear the tour met your expectation. I had a lovely time with both of you. It was nice meeting you. Thank you so much for having me as your guide. I hope you come to Japan again and hope to see you then. Please take care.

“ Great Tours with Yoko ”

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.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for such a lovely review, Bev! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tours. I also had a lovely time with you and your sister. Some places and things were new to me and a little adventurous, but that was a fantastic experience. Thank you so much for giving me such a good opportunity! I'm grateful for your kindness. I hope you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then. Thank you and please take care.

“ Totally would recommend Yoko and Triple Lights. Wonderful day with an excellent guide, covered a lot with quite a variety ”

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.

Yoko:

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!
