Hello, potential tourists!
I'm Yuko, government licensed tour guide. I have been living in Yokohama for 35 years, and have been working in Tokyo for more than 30 years; 20 years as a business person,10 years as a teacher.
So I'm familiar with sightseeing spots and hidden places in Yokohama, while Tokyo is another special place for me!
Three years ago I became a tour guide just because I love Japan and I'm proud of my country! Among all, I'm really fascinated with the seasonal changes, 4 clear-cut seasons; each of them has its own attraction.
We can find "a season" anytime, anywhere; in nature, annual events, art, fashin, and foods!
Also,I like meeting new people from all over the world. I'd like to help you find the seasonal tastes of Japan specially arranged for you whenever you come!
Also I'd be willing to answer your any questions about Japanese cultures, such as Sumo, Kimono, Furoshiki, Tea ceremony, Ninja, Karate, Wadaiko, Kabuki, ,, you name it! If you are interested in one or more of them, I would like to help you find the right place to enjoy it.
As for me, as a licenced Origami instructor, I'd like to show you how to make seasonal flowers and annual event items with Origami(folding paper), or make it as a present as a souvenior for you.
I'm available mainly from early morning to 17:00 (Depending on the day).
I would be happy to arrange the only tour in the world specially arranged for you!
See you in Japan!

Visiting Japan, and Tokyo specifically, for the first time, we were looking for a private guide. Via Triple Lights we booked Yuko Ohmori, and she appeared the best guide we could wish for. The preparation, the motivation, the pleasure and the professionality she took care of us was impressive and very warm! She guided us for 21/2 days and from begin to end was magnificent. Breaking up when we had to leave felt like loosing a friend; although it at the same time felt as we gained a friend for life! Warm regards, Flip van Ellinkhuizen
Dear Flip, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I am really lucky to have a chance to spend time with nice guests like you, the greatest couple! April 22nd to 24th were the special days for me, because it was the first time to have been a tour guide for more than one day in my life! I am surprised 2and a half days have passed like an arrow with you! Talking with you about your country and ours, view of life, I felt myself not like a tour guide but we are just friends, which was another happy feeling for me ! Going around the sightseeing spots, I even found another beatuty and value in Japanese culture by being with you ! I was also impressed by your courteous behavior to everybody sourrounding us ! Everybody, from little children to seniors in Japan look welcoming yo... read more
Yuko was prompt in meeting us at our hotel. She is friendly, caring and very organized. It was obvious that she had spent a lot of time planning our tour according to our wishes. We saw all of the sights that I had requested for our group of 4 adults. When I return to Yokohama or Tokyo, I will certainly contact Yuko again to arrange another tour for me!
Dear Rosemary, Thank you very much for your nice comments! I'm happy you enjoyed the tour, and I will never forget smiles of your members on the face, which were really nice. All, you, your husband, and your friend couple, are really kind, friendly, and you are the great Emperess of the wonderful group! April 12nd was the special day for me, because that was the first time to have a tour of Yokohama, my lovely city, in Triple Lights. I appreiate you gave me a chance to meet all of you, who love Yokohama. After the tour, my husband I visited plant shops to buy a herb "Rosemary" for our garden, which has really nice aroma refreshing us. It is a memorial item, that would bring us happiness! I'm looking forward to your another visit to Yokohama or Tokyo, and see you again. Good... read more
Yuku was such an amazing guide! We traveled with our 1yr old daughter, and Yuko was so nice and thoughtful of her. She has a bright personality and lots of energy. We ended up seeing a few places that were scheduled on our tour before our tour date, so the itinerary she had planned was adapted on the spot. She was flexible and so well prepared as she adapted the schedule to our needs and interest. She knew the best places for diaper changes and even child friendly restaurant. She was one of the most well prepared guides we used, and responded and confirmed everything promptly. You can tell she is a hard worker and will do her best to make your tour enjoyable. We really enjoyed our time with her!
Dear Derek, Thank you very much for attending my tour, and I really appreciate your good review. You are wonderful famiy, and I was lucky spending my time with you! It was one of the most memorable tour I've ever had. , which was my first tour in Triplelights. You look like a 20s and 30s couple with young energy, thoughtful of each other, kind, with lovely wife and cute "Princess"! If you have another chance to visit Japan, it would be appreciated if you could consider including Yokohama in the itinerary! I hope to see you again in your future ! Good luck for your family, job, and all the life ! Yuko Ohmori
