Hello! My name is Mari. I am more than happy to guide you and want you to feel how excited and wonderful the city of Tokyo is.
Beside guiding tours, I work sometime as an instructor how to make Sushi to foreigners.
I used to work in a travel section of a multi-national company. So, I am able to provide you wonderful opportunities to encounter Japanese Culture which inspire you.
One of places I recommend is Tsukiji fish market where is the sacred place of professional fishermen. You can feel the essence of Japanese cuisine. Sushi making workshop will be another excited experience in Tokyo.
As my hobby, I enjoy stained glass crafting and viewing works of Japanese arts. I enjoy a cross-culture communication and I belongs to one of Toastmasters clubs in Tokyo.
As you know Travel make you a happier person by breaking routine, building self-confidence, and
providing new experiences and memories.
I used to work at a child neurological clinic in Tokyo as a medical interpreter. In January 2017, I guided Tsukiji Fish Market a family from Hawaii introduced by a doctor in the clinic. The following is a part of thank-you e-mail.
We enjoyed the Tsukiji Market tour very much -- including stops at nearby Honganji Temple, Shrine and especially enjoyed the sushi lunch we had.
Thanks for your time we were able to explore Tsukiji area on our last day. If I know of Tokyo bound travelers, I will definitely refer them to you in the future.
In order to make your stay more enjoyable and memorable, I am here. Let’s enjoy Tokyo together.
See you soon.

In Japan, unlicensed guides are operating illegally, and are therefore considered to be of lesser quality to licensed guides, who carry official registration cards which represent professionalism and legalit
