I've got the national license of a tour guide in English in 2013. Since then I had attended a volunteer group which provided a tour of the Imperial Palace East Gardens. 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 guided more than 300 tours in Tokyo as well as Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone, Kyoto and Lake Kawaguchi and have been improving my tour. Therefore, I am sure that I can provide you the best 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!!

“ Amazing tour in a day! ”

Yuki was so knowledgeable and had so much insight on our tour. Yuki also helped us learn and use the subway so we were able to spend the next few days navigating the city on our own! Would definitely recommend Yuki!!!


Dear Amanda, Thank you for writing the good review of my tour. It was a cold day, but not too cold to walk around. I am very happy to know that you enjoyed my tour. Please give my best regards to Cole and Sara. Yuki

“ Fantastic introduction to Tokyo ”

We had a day long tour with Yuki on the first day of our holidays. It was excellent. We found Yuki to be extremely informative and interesting. We really appreciated the way he explained things and personalised the tour to our tastes. We visited Meiji Shrine, Tsukiji market, Hama-Rykyu Gardens, took a boat trip and ended the day at Sensoji Temple. In addition Yuki brought us to an amazing sushi restaurant for lunch. The food was delicious and there is no way we could have found it on our own. All in all this was a fantastic first day of our holiday and we would have no hesitation in recommending a trip with Yuki to other tourists with similar interests to our own (Japanese history, culture, food).


Dear Gillian, Thank you for the nice review of my tour. It was my great pleasure to guide your party and explain the historical background of each place. I hope my tour helps you to make your tour more interesting and fruitful. Please give my best regards to Cathal, too. Yuki

“ 31st Bday in Tokyo ”

I spent my 31st Birthday with Yuki as a guide and it was an awesome choice. Yuki was absolutely amazing. He was super kind and knowledgeable. He showed us photos and gave us history of the places we visited. He was also very flexible with time and his English was good. He even guided us to our night tour as my friend and I weren’t sure how to navigate the subway. I would definitely recommend Yuki. Thank You for making my birthday memorable.


Dear Lauren, Thank you for your review of my tour. I feel very happy to know that you enjoyed my tour. Best regards, Yuki

Good explanation of temple history and He even recommended a nice family restaurant for us that evening. Thank you so Much !! Stacy and Family

“ A great tour that was tailored very well for us, and the best sushi meal ever! ”

Yuki was very knowledgable and great at helping us navigate the fish market, explaining what everything meant and how things work here in Japan, and lots about the history of the place and the culture. Highly recommend a tour with him. He also took us to an incredible restaurant for lunch, which we'd never have found on our own. The quality of the sushi we ate was extremely high, and good value for what it was.


Dear Charlotte, Thank you for writing the review of my tour. It was a short tour, but I am grad you have enjoyed it. Best regards, Yuki
