I've got the national license of a tour guide in English in 2013. Since then I attended a volunteer group which provides a tour of the Imperial Palace East Gardens which used to be Edo castle. I guided more than fifty times in the garden as a volunteer and studied about 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 200 tours in Tokyo as well as Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone and Lake Kawaguchi and have been improving my tour. Therefore, I am sure that I can provide you private tours customized to your interests. It will be my great pleasure to help you to enjoy your stay in Japan. See you on my tours!!

We had a lovely day with Yuki, he was both knowledgable and very professional. We walked for miles and saw so much. He also took us to a very nice restaurant for lunch. Highly recommend him
Dear Carol, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I am very glad you enjoyed my tour. Good food is an important part of my tour. Please give my best regards to your husband and friends. Yuki
Good. Yuki is considerate (looking for elevators aside from escalators) since we were 2 senior couples finding it difficult to walk fast and not used to long walks inside the complicated railways.
Dear Lourds, Thank you for taking my tours for three days. I hope you enjoyed traveling Japan. Sorry for missing Mt. Fuji, I tried my best to let you see it. We had a great view of the mountain next day. Please give my best regards to your husband and friends. Best regards, Yuki
My wife and I spent the day with Yuki and had a great time seeing the Imperial Palace, Meiji Shrine, and Samurai Museum.
Dear Nicholas, Thank you for your review. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my tours. Please give my best regards to your wife, too. Yuki
Yuki is very kind and helpful. He also takes time to explain the history of the tourist spots in Tokyo. My family and I were very happy with Yuki's services.
Dear Ruby, Thank you for writing the review so soon. Please enjoy Kyoto and meet you on Nov. 8th for Hakone tour. Yuki
