I've got the national license of a tour guide in English in 2013. Since then I attended a volunteer group which is providing a tour of the Imperial Palace East Gardens that 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 100 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 the most impressive tour around Tokyo. It will be my great pleasure to help you to enjoy your stay in Japan. See you on my tours!!

Very knowlegable and his discussion of the history and meaning behind the places we visited were greatly apreciated
We had a great time with Yuki-san in Hakone. He was very knowledgeable, and attentive to our needs, even helping to draw the shades when the sun’s rays were shining into the train carriage. The tour was well paced and well planned, with adequate breaks. The route was carefully selected to reduce unnecessary delays. When we had more time than expected, he offered us suggestions to make the most of our day, like nearby sights which we could visit while waiting for the next scheduled item. Yuki-san knows the perfect spot to capture the best view. To top it all off, he speaks great English and is a very engaging conversationalist. Thank you, Yuki-san!
He was very good and made the best of the situation. The weather was not suitable for a Mt. fuji itinerary but we had Lake Ashi cruise and the ropeway that ran close to the Volcano. And we went to a beautiful garden. It rained a little bit that day.
Yuki was a great tour guide and was very attentive to my 7 year old son. He had a tour setup for us but he was flexible enough to accommodate our last minute changes. We enjoyed our tour and it was very memorable.
