About

Hello! This is Ryu. I live in Yokohama. My favorite places are Yokohama and Kamakura. Both cities, you can make a one day trip from Tokyo. They are important in Japanese history; the Samurai Warriors Era began from Kamakura in 12th century and the Modern Age broke out from Yokohama in 19th century. There are many attractive places to see, and it is my pleasure to share with you the combination of old and modern culture together with beautiful nature.

I have chemistry background and had been involved in R&D work for more than 20 years in the company. I worked on corporate planning in my late years. I am very good at making a travel plan for you according to your needs.

I love visiting shrines and temples, watching seasonal flowers, walking around the trails, watching beautiful Mr. Fuji over the ocean in the beach, eating in a nice restaurant at a reasonable price, having coffee with delicious sweets in cozy café. I ride mountain bike, and sometimes enjoy the ride in Izu, Hakone and Fuji area.

Hope to see you soon!

“ Excellent traditional Japanese guide ”

We used Ryu twice while we were in Japan. The first was a day trip from Yokohama cruise port to Kamakura with two other couples from the ship. The second was a day tour of Tokyo highlights for my wife and I. In both cases we found Ryu to be very knowedgeable, friendly, and informative. On the Kamakura tour we especially enjoyed the french restaurant (recomended by his wife!) he took us to - it was very good & an appreciated break from all the asian food we had been eating for the past several weeks. Ryu provided great background knowledge of the sights we were seeing and taught us a lot about historical Japan. He was very flexible and willing to customize the tours to our needs & interests. He was also extremely helpful with solving other problems we had, especially in arranging t... read more

Ryu:

Dear Bill and Lynne, Thank you for your nice message. I really enjoyed touring with you. I also feel relieved that you came back to your home safely. Hope to see you some day again. Take care of yourself! Best Regards, Ryu Oi

“ Expert guide with great planning ”

My son and I had a desire to see Japanese car culture at highway parking areas in Tokyo and Yokohama. no other guide on TripleLights was as enthusiastic about helping us out Ryu took time to do research prior to our tour and did a fantastic job. he even organized a taxi for us to drive my family of 5 around the whole time. We even left my sons jacket in the taxi and the driver was nice enough to bring it back to us later.

Ryu:

Hi Todd, I also enjoyed guiding you very much. I was excited seeing Skyline GTR, costumed version, as much as you did. Did you find your roots in Nagoya? If you want to see something special next time in Japan, I will research it beforehand. Let me know. I didn't know your son left his jacket in the taxi, but I am pleased to hear you get it back. I am checking your *******. See you!

“ An amazing tour guide! ”

We had a great tour to Kamakura with Ryu. He was punctual, friendly, knowledgeable, and was great with our kids. We were a family of 8 people that included 3 kids (twin 6-year-olds and a 12-year-old). We went to all the places we were interested in and had time for shopping. We are from the US and understood Ryu perfectly. We never felt lost or rushed. The tour was great!

Ryu:

Thank you, Pinkie, for your very kind feedback. I was lucky to see such a beautiful family like you. I enjoyed traveling Kamakura as much as you did. There are still many attractive places to visit in Japan. Hope to see you some day.
