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!

“ Kamakura Highlights ”

Yoko spoke beautiful English. She was very easy to understand. Although the weather was terrible, we went to see the big Buddha. She had a great deal of knowledge to tell us about this area and why the Buddha were so important. We were delighted to spend half the day with her and would have enjoyed more except for the torrential rain that was falling down. We would recommend her to anyone who wants to go to Kamakura. She even gave us a momento of Japan at the end of our trip.

“ One day Tokyo Tour ”

Yoko took me and my family on a unforgettable one day tour through Tokyo. As this was our first trip to Tokyo, Yoko also provided us with instructions on how to find our way in Tokyo which was very helpful throughout our stay. She met us at the hotel and showed us some wonderful shrines and shopping areas. Yoko is a wonderful person who is very knowledgeable about Japanese customs and traditions. I would highly recommend her to anyone who plans to visit Tokyo.

“ Excellent tour! ”

We are a family of 4, with 2 teenagers on our first trip to Japan. Yoko met us at our hotel and our full day tour began. We first went to the Tsukiji fish market and was amazed at the variety and freshness of seafood and produce in Japan. We sampled the varied foods in the market, eating mochi, Japanese omelet, onigiri, and sushi, which were all very good. Yoko explained all of the items that were unfamiliar to us. After, she took us to the top of a building's observatory to view Tokyo Bay and our amazing surroundings. She also took us to the Hama-Rikyu Gardens. As expected, the garden was beautiful. We then had lunch at a noodle restaurant and ate cold soba noodles, which was very refreshing, especially on a hot day. We then went shopping in Ginza. First at a department store, where she helped us purchase a Yukata. She then found a great store for us, where they sold pens and stationery, as we purchased items for school. She was very patient and helpful as we shopped excitedly in Ginza. Our last stop was at the Mei-ji Shrine. Throughout the tour, Yoko was very knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating for our needs. She even helped us purchase tickets for the Shinkansen train to Kyoto. We would highly recommend Yoko for any tours!

“ Tokyo all day tour ”

This was by far the best thing I did. Having a private tour was informative and amazingly fun. Yoko made it fun and exciting. She was very sweet and kind and a good sense of humor. She knew a lot about the areas and the history. Navigation was a breeze. Anything you were unsure about she would kindly take you step by step. We got to eat at a very nice ramen restaurant. In the end it felt more like a close friend taking us around then a guide which made it more fun and comfortable. I highly recommend doing a tour. And a bonus with Yoko as your tour guide. Thank you again Yoko for the best tour.

“ Harajuku shoes ?? ”

I opted for the Harajuku, Meiji Shrine and Shibuya tour. A six hour tour. From the moment I booked with Yoko, she was in constant communication with me. Being it the first time out in Tokyo, I was looking for someone who was well versed and knowledgable with the area. I found that in Yoko. Her speaking English was also a plus. Made it easier to communicate and understand each other. The Shrine and history behind it was a marvel. She took me thru Takeshita Street which was a treat for me. I ended up at Out of this World shoe store. Btw..if you love unique shoes swing by there! Shibuya crossing was a spectacle. I would recommend and hire Yoko again when needed. She's knowledgable, sincere and patient. I took a bit of my tour time in shoe store. ;)Managed to finish and enjoy the rest of my tour! Thank you Yoko.
