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!!

Excellent tour provided by Yuki. He's quite flexible about customizing the plans according to how things go. He took us to his favourite ramen restaurant which was so delicious.
Dear Manuel, Thank you for your review. The ramen restaurant is the most favorite of mine. Food is a very important part of my tour. Best regards, Yuki
Mr Yuki is an excellent guide. I had a wonderful day originating in Tokyo and arriving in Hakone and touring the area. He was very polite and knowledgeable about the area and was happy to answer all the questions I had. Highly recommend a trip with Mr Yuki!
Dear Grace, Thank you for writing a review of my tour so soon. It was my pleasure to guide you around many of my favorite places. I was impressed with your challenging mind. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki was an excellent guide! We really enjoyed his services. The first time in Tokyo you certainly need someone experienced to guide your way around. Highly recommended!
Dear Anna, Thank you for your review. I am very glad to know you liked my tour. Food is a very important part of my tour. Please give my best regards to your friend. Yuki
Yuki was a great guide. It was really nice to have a personal guide, who gave us many options on how we wanted our day to go. He was right on time to start the day, and the day had a good pace. His english was very good, and he brought us to a great place for lunch. I would definitely use him again when we travel back to Tokyo.
Dear David, Thank you for writing nice review of my tour and highest evaluation. I am very glad to know you enjoyed my tour. Please come again! Yuki
We took the tour of Hakone with Yuki on Oct 4, 2018. It was a cloudy day with little amount of rain hence we were not able to see Mount FUji. Mr. Yuki had already informed us about it but still we went ahead with the trip. We saw the Hakone Open Air museum, Gora Park, Ropeway to see the volcanic valley and tour of Lake Ashi. The trip was well organised and paced with Mr. Yuki, though we were lagging behind in time in our trip but still Mr. Yuki planned our trip in such a way that we did not miss out on seeing any sight seeing places and enjoyed our trip to Hakone even if we could not see Mount Fuji.
Dear Puja, Thank you for your review. Sorry for the poor weather, but I did my best for your tour. Best regards, Yuki
