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 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.
She was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information about the history of the area. She was energetic, pleasant, and engaging.
We wouldn't have seen much of Tokyo if it wasn't for Kyoko. She was also able to show us how to go around via the train system. Would get her again when I return to Tokyo :)
Kyoko is such a wonderful tour guide my group of 12 adults were blessed with in our one free day in Tokyo. She picked us up at the hotel and patiently took us to different sights by train. Such an experience for us to be taking train in our kimonos, which Kyoko had arranged for us to rent. She is very patient ensuring everyone is attended to. She let us experience to be " locals " by walking us thru the markets, busy streets of Ginza, spending time in shopping malls. Always on time. I highly recommend her to be your tour guide, be it for one day or few days, if you want to have a great day in Tokyo. Thank you Kyoko for a fun-filled day with you as our tour guide. GOD bless, and hope to see you again with another group of mine. Josie Reyes - Hayward, CA USA
