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
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!
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!
