Hello! I'm Kyoko. I am a National licensed tour guide and a licensed teacher for junior and high schools. I also have a licensed manager of itinerary.
I was born in Kyoto, that's why my name is Kyoto's child (Kyo Ko). And I had chances to live in Kyoto, Nara,Tokyo, and Lima,Peru. Now I live with my husband in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture which is next to Tokyo. Kanagawa prefecture is as nice as Tokyo, with Kawasaki city, Yokohama city, Kamakura city and so on.
My hobby is wearing kimono, enjoying tea ceremony,exercising through yoga and aerobics. Kimono is a Japanese beautiful national costume, and you can try it on only in Japan. So, if you'd like to try it on , maybe I can help you. Let me know your request.
As I had lived in Peru, I can speak easy Spanish, but still not enough. So if you are Spanish natives, let me teach your language! I want to study Spanish more. " Por favor!"
Japan has a long history in which many good things and sad things happened. I want to walk in our country with you while helping you understand our country and us. Let's enjoy together!!

My wife and I had a wonderful time in Tokyo with Kyoko.She was very pleasant and spoke good English and very knowledgeable about the history of the place and it’s people. My wife also loved her coming in a kimono. Highly recommended and would engage her again in our next visit.
It was a pleasure having Kyoko show us around Tokyo. She met us at our hotel, and personalised the tour to ensure the whole family was happy. Kyoko was so kind and full of information and also helped us organise our JR passes. I would highly recommend Kyoko for your tour of Tokyo. Thanks Kyoko
Kyoko is an excellent guide. We are a big family with senior citizens,a teenager, and toddler. She was very patient, gentle, kind and very polite with us. She was willing to try new things with us like eating street foods at Tsukiji market, she also went over and beyond our scheduled time to show us the yozakura at the imperial palace. She was accommodating and considerate with my children. We had a wonderful time with her. She is very knowledgeable about the history of Tokyo. She is also wonderful with children. I would highly recommend her to families with children. Thank you Kyoko for spending the day with us.
Kyoko communicated well with us before our arrival and professionally guided us on a half day tour. She was helpful in teaching us to use the trains and found a very nice sushi restaurant near the fish market to have lunch. We would highly recommend her to future tourists.
We had a great day touring around Tokyo with Kyoko. She was very friendly, spoke good English and made sure all the things we wanted to do were included in the tour. I especially loved doing the tour in a kimono. Highly recommended.
