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!!

Dear Susan, Thank you for writing a review so soon! It was a busy day, but I am glad to know you have enjoyed it. See you tomorrow. Yuki
Hello Everyone! If you are doing a day tour, Yuki is the best and highly recommended! He gives you historical background of every place we went to and took us shopping to the cheapest places! We will get him again when we come back to Japan for a visit! Thanks Yuki!
Dear Robelyn, Thank you for writing a review of my tour of Tokyo. I was very happy when your family listens to my explanation of each site and gave me questions about our country and people. My tour is very flexible to reflect the interests of the guest so I changed my route to take you to my favorite ramen shop and added Ameyoko discount streets where you bought so many Japanese sweets. I hope your family has enjoyed traveling Japan. Best regards, Yuki
My 11 year old son and I began our trip in Tokyo with Yuki-san. We started the day taking the shinkansen out of Shinagawa Station and taking the local train once in Kyoto to the Fushimi Shrine. We did the Miyabi Tour. We followed the course and had lunch at a delicious tonkatsu restaurant that Yuki-san found for us because of my picky 11 year old eater. The most memorable site for us was the Kinkaku Temple late afternoon. The sunset hit the temple just right and it shone in its beautiful gold color.

Dear Miho, Thank you very much for writing such a specific review of my tour. It was my pleasure to guide you and your son to Kyoto when it is not so crowded. The day was very fine and mild in the last week of December but it snowed on the next day. Sorry for the walk to find the Tonkatsu restaurant, its entrance was very different from what I expected. I will look for your visit of Japan again. Yuki
Great guide who did all he could to show us this beautiful city under less than optimal conditions. He was keenly aware of how tired we were after traveling the day before from the US.
Dear Neal, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my tour. I was glad that your wife could eat Udon without soup. Best regards, Yuki
Thank you for the last minute changes you made to our itinerary in order to ensure our 3 yr old enjoyed the tour as much we did! The photos from all of our stops are beautiful. We had a wonderful time and we really appreciate your help in getting around town stress free. Lunch was also delicious- thank you for the recommendation!
Dear Lalaine, Thank you for the review. I was very glad to see your daughter became happy at the toy street near Tokyo station. I want everyone to be happy during my tour and enjoy good foods to make good memories of Japan. Best regards, Yuki
