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!!

Yuki did a very good job of guiding us around Tokyo. He lent us some Metro cards so we could just recharge them rather than buying new ones which was nice.
Yuki was our guide for Hakone (departing from Tokyo by Shinkansan). About half way through the tour we had stormy weather that resulted in the "ropeway" being cancelled. Thank goodness Yuki was there to figure out how to continue on our journey to Lake Ashi by local bus. This would have been very tricky without a knowledgeable guide. We stayed overnight in Hakone while Yuki headed back to the Tokyo area. He made sure that we had instructions on how to proceed to Kyoto on our own the next morning. I would recommend Yuki for his excellent English and his efficient manner.
Yuki understood what was important to us. Very knowledgeable, soft spoken and kind. A wonderful example of the quality of your employees. I'm coming back to Japan next year and if possible I would like to have him as a tour guide again. I have been asked by some of the passengers on the Diamond Princess about our tour. I highly recommend your company.
Yuki-san gave us a great introduction to Tokyo on day 1 of our trip. He not only helped us see several Tokyo highlights in a day, but also gave us enough of an orientation to the city so that we are were able to comfortably navigate Tokyo by ourselves after that. His suggestions on getting a Pasmo card to navigate the subway system, and the extra photographs and info he had handy on his tablet were also greatly appreciated. We particularly enjoyed all the historical and cultural insights he was able to provide. Thanks, Yuki-san!
Yuki is a pleasant and experienced guide to tour with. He offered bits of interesting historical events for each different location and will not hesitate to answer your questions. Moreover, the presentation was neat and commendable. He offered to fetch us at our apartment (not to mention that he was early!) and even took the extra mile to include additional tour location when the tour ended early. If you are looking for a light-hearted tour, i would recommend Yuki.
