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!!

Kyoko made our introduction to Tokyo amazing. She was so thorough & thoughtful throughout our adventures - always one step ahead of us with ideas & suggestions. Our children (& us) adored Kyoko & we so grateful to have made a new friend. I can not recommend her enough - Kyoko is wonderful!
Thank you very much Tara-san for writing me such a quick and awesome review! I am trying to return it by nicer words, but I haven't found them yet. So, I just tell you my appreciation in a normal way. Your family is kind , nice, punctual , and broad-minded, which makes me feel I might have had something more I could do for you. I hope I could inform you of just a part of attaraction in Tokyo. Looking forward to meeting you again in the near future!!
Kyoko is great!! She was knowledgeable, friendly and eager to help us explore!! We couldn’t be happier and recommend her for anyone looking to explore Tokyo!!! Thank you Kyoko!!!!
Thank you for your strong and kind review, Robert-san! I am also really happy to have spent with you who are so kind and cheerful. I was especially moved by your couple's deep connection which has been grown through long time since you were still high school students. Every person has his or her own story and yours are one of the most beautiful ones. I wish we can meet again someday in the near future maybe with your future family!!
I booked a two 8 hour private tours with Kyoko for my manager’s 14 year old daughter. From the very first email interaction I was completely impressed with Kyoko. She was professional, personable, extremely knowledgeable and she went above and beyond planning a very detailed tour that would be super fun and interesting for a teenager girl. Day One tour included a visit to Shibuya, Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, Takeshita Street & Omotesando. Day two included a visit to Hamarikyu Garden, a Sumida River Cruise, Lunch at Asakusa, Sensouji Temple and the Tokyo Skytree. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Kyoko and I look forward to working with her again in the future.
I don't know how much thankfulness I can tell you writing me a wonderful and perfect review even though this was not your journeys but your boss's daughter's ones, Michelle! Since we were exchanging our messages, I can easilly understand your high-spirited dedication and loyalty. As you said she is nice , brave and disciplined. I didn't have hard time to be with her. I believe she could totally enjoyed her time in Japan while her father was busy working for his job. There are three other sisters and I am waiting for their turns and yours. Young people are our hope that they will be bridges for you and our countries. Thank you again and again and I wish we can meet in the near future!!
Kyoko was a very accomodating tour guide to us. Since we requested for a Cherry Blossom tour, Kyoko made sure we had the best Cherry Blossom experience to put a check on our bucket list! She also instantly bonded with my 82-year old mother as she was kind, considerate and very accomodating with my mother's requests for Kyoko to take pictures of her with Cherry Blossoms! Overall, a truly wonderful experience!
Thank you Lillibeth for writing me an excellent and kind review! I was moved by your dedication to your mother. All you cared about were your mother's interest. Also, your sister who all the way tried to feed me was really funny and nice. Walking with you while biting a huge Melon Pan (bread) under the cherry blossoms was also my unforgettable memory. Please tell my thanks to all of your family. I am waiting for your next visit maybe in the cherry blossoms season again!
Kyoko is very knowledgeable about Japan and its history. She’s also an excellent teacher. She’s very approachable and personable. She made my 1st day in Tokyo memorable and highly recommend her
Thank you very much, Rita-san, for writing me so nice and wonderful review even though you must be very busy. I also learnt from you a lot that the world of attorney is not just like "SUITS". But I still believe it is right in a certain meaning that smart and nice people like you are working so hard in order to keep the order of the law. Rita-san, take care of yourself and please come back to Japan again maybe in autumn next time. Hoping to see you again at that time!
