About

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!!

“ Very helpful and informative guide for a visit to Tokyo, Japan ”

We engaged Kyoko-San for 2 days to show us around Tokyo. It was very easy to connect with her, understand what we could do, work out the logistics and so on. As our trip approached, she got in touch regularly to confirm final detail on logistics from our side. On both days, she was very prompt - arrived early so we didn’t have to wait, took good care to make sure that we felt totally comfortable as we navigated through Tokyo subway and streets, have us a lot of information about the sights, Tokyo, Japan and so on. She made it possible for us to get the most out of our first trip to Tokyo with limited time (as we were just breaking journey on our way to Australia).

Kyoko:

Thank you very much, Ravikumar-san ,for writing me so nice a review! I am also very happy to have been able to walk with you and your beautiful family!! You quickly enjoyed Shinjuku, Asakusa, and Odaiba in those two days (half days each). But you are very accustomed to traveling , so I didn't care so much about your plan most of which had been already reserved by you. I especially liked your daughters' calligraphy class. They not only wrote Japanese Kanji characters beautifully but also behaved very well whole through the tours. I easily understand how much love their parents poured to them! I also loved the ramen restaurant which you found. It was my first experience to eat vegitalian ramen which tastes unbelievably good. This was your very short and hasty visit ,but I believe y... read more

“ An excellent and knowledgeable guide ”

I had an amazing day with Kyoko exploring Tokyo. I learned so much about Japan's history, she really knows her stuff! She was very flexible when I was deciding where I wanted to go and is just a very lovely person. Highly recommended

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for your excellent review, Emma-san! I am very happy to have been with you , especially your request of Happy Pancake. I had never heard of it and if you hadn't been here, I would have never waited in line for a pancake. But we were rewarded! I am impressed by you young people's ability of catching new information. I am also happy that you could get a cute lucky charm in Hanazono Shrine. I hope you will come back to Japan again and we can meet again in the near future!

“ Tokyo Gardens and Senso-ji Shrine ”

Wonderful experience. Kyoko was very friendly and well informed about the sights. I highly recommend Kyoko for tours and sightseeing. Superb.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Karan-san for your quick and excellent review! You are the first guests I welcomed in this new era, Reiwa. So, your family is not only nice but unforgettable. I also enjoyed your mother's and aunt's shopping spree. One of the Kokeshi doll you bought is the same type I have. I hope you love it for a long time. Please continue safe and wonderful journey. Hoping to see you again someday in the near future!

“ we had a wonderfull day with Kyoko ”

We had a fascinating day with Kyoko, an amazing guide, was attentive to our requests even though we changed them countless times, we really enjoyed being with her. Warmly recommending her.

Kyoko:

Thank you Alex-san for your excellent review! You and your wife were so kind and cooperative that I could easily attend you in any occasion. Using taxies time to time makes our tour easy and quick to move. Due to this, we could move more efficient and wider despite you were guests from Yokohama cruse port. The coffee we had at the Tokyo Metropolitan government building was unforgettably nice. I hope we could meet you again in someday near future!

“ Kyoko made our visit wonderful! ”

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!

Kyoko:

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!!
