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!

“ Beautiful day in Japan with Yoko ”

Our party of four adults were privileged to spend the day with Yoko. This was our first time to visit Japan and we set up a tour through TripleLights to get an understanding of the city of Tokyo and to help us navigate the subway system. We couldn’t have been more pleased with Yoko’s wonderful assistance in caring for us as we traveled all over Tokyo with her expert guidance. Her knowledge of the Japanese culture and history was invaluable to getting to know the people of Japan. I highly recommend starting you trip this and way with Yoko as your guide.

Yoko:

Thank you very much for your lovely review, Robert! I had a lovely day with all of you. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me. That was a beautiful day after rainy days, I was pleased to help you explore Tokyo. We laughed a lot and I learned something new from you, which was memorable for me. I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. I hope you have enjoyed staying in Japan. I hope you come to Tokyo again and see you then. Please take care and have a lovely journey.

Yoko was a truly amazing guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and a pleasure to talk with. She set up a wonderful tour for my wife and I on our honeymoon, and was happy to make changes to the tour based on our preferences. We highly recommend Yoko!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Walker! I had a lovely day with both of you, and the day with you reminded me of my honeymoon in my younger days! Talking with both of you was really fun and interesting, and the tour with you was memorable for me. Thank you for having me as your guide. I hope I can see you again in the near future. I hope you both share a long and happy life together.
