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.

Mari took great care of us as we navigated through night time tour of Tokyo and surrounding areas. Thank you for helping us better understand Japanese culture and history.
Having arrived in Tokyo for the first time, i was overwhelmed by the complex train system and Japanese language. I decided to hire a private tour guide as I had only 1 full day to explore. Mari accepted my request within hours for a next day private tour. Mari asked me questions to plan the best itinerary and provided me tips of how to prepare for the tour. On the day, Mari was ready and waiting for me in the hotel foyer. She was very well presented, had very good english, provided me a personalised printed itinerary and was a wealth of knowledge. Mari taught me how to use the train system very quickly! We visited the Imperial Palace, Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Tower. Mari helped me to find my son's Naruto T-Shirt request!. At the end of the day Mari delivered me back to the hotel. I highly recommend Mari. She is professional, kind, respectful, knowledgeable, punctual, friendly and highly efficient. A wonderful lady.
My husband and I have recently joined Mari for a day tour of Tokyo. We are both seniors and would like to say thank you to Mari for organising a lovely day showcasing our interests and highlighting our must sees in Tokyo. We also appreciated her effort in arranging our dietary requirements. Again, thanks Mari for a lovely day. Jean Johnston
Mari did an amazing tour for me and my family which included children 8, 11 and 14 years of age. We were in constant communication of our plans prior to our time, she considered what we wanted to see and added detail and interesting spotlights that we would not have thought of if we were on our own. She considered the age of my children, made it educational and fun for them. She thoughtfully planned out each route and destination. She assisted me in so many ways and went above and beyond. Also giving me tips on other tourist sites we were going to do the other days. I really appreciate her kindness, expertise and time!
Mari was accommodating and very thoughtful. She understood our needs and arranged everything to meet our preferences. She has a warm and personal touch. My son liked a particular type of sushi and she was willing to arrange with the restaurant to cater to his tastes. These are small gestures that show how she goes out of the way to satisfy our needs. Thank you so much Mari!
