I've got the license of tour guide in English in 2013. Since then I attended a volunteer group which is providing a tour in the Imperial Palace East Gardens that used to be Edo castle. I guided more than fifty times in the garden as a volunteer and have deep knowledge of Japanese history and culture.
I was born and grew up in Yokohama and I visited many places with my family. I used to work in Tokyo for more than 20 years. I have more than 20 tours to Hakone and Lake Kawaguchi and have been improving my tour. Therefore, I am sure that I can provide you the most impressive tour around Tokyo. It will be my great pleasure to help you to enjoy your stay in Japan. See you in my tours!!

“ A private tour that surpassed expectations ”

I cannot even begin how excellent Yuki was as my tour expert in Tokyo for three days. Coming to Japan as a first-timer, I was nervous about navigating the Tokyo's public transportation systems and taking in a culture I have never personally been immersed in. Through going around Tokyo with Yuki, I was not only able to overcome the initial anxiety, but also gain a new perspective on Japan that I would otherwise have missed out on had I went alone. Yuki was an excellent communicator, took into account my interests in improving my proposed itinerary and made sure that every spot we visited was supplemented with interesting information and historical background. Yuki made sure that I was not only enjoying the stops as a tourist experience, but also see each attraction through the lens of society and culture. It is also worth mentioning that Yuki went above and beyond for me to make sure that I got back to my hotel safely, took correct public transportation and have my souvenirs mailed to the USA via EMS. Yuki's outstanding dedication to ensure that I have a seamless travel experience is something I have never seen anywhere else. I am beyond grateful for his concern and compassion. I came to love Tokyo a lot more than what I was expecting, and Yuki made sure that you walked away from the tour realizing how great Japan and its people are. If you are looking to visiting Japan, you can never go wrong with Yuki.

“ Kamakura from Yokoham ”

Yuki was very informative, his English was good, smooth public transportation . He was little too fast walking for us, hard time keeping up with him. He tried to accommodate us with what we want. He is just a fast walker.

“ Organized and Knowledgeable Guide ”

We toured the Tokyo, Hakone and Kamakura areas with Yuki. Yuki was a very organized guide with wide knowledge of the Temples, Shrines and other important Tourist spots that we visited. He plans the days well and considers the preferences of the customer. I will not hesitate to recommend his services to my friends.
