Hi, I am an English speaking tour guide with national license. I love travelling overseas myself, which made me start my new career path as an interpretting tour guide in 2017 after 16 year's working at a publisher.
I have lived in Tokyo for 20 years. It has been always my joy to rediscover Tokyo, and sharing those fine tips with you is going to be my happiest monent. Let me help you create unforgettable memory by suggesting you from
casual canteens to hi-end restaurants, from traditional experience to modern activities, from sacred spots to romantic sites, and so on.
My idea is "Travel is a chance to streangthen togetherness among family, friends, and lovers." I truly got over my serious situations through travel, which I was saved by.
If you are thinking of a surprise gift during your stay to whom you are accompanying, please feel free to share your idea with me beforehand.
Just for information, I stayed in Malaysia for 2 months by summer homestay program for high-schoolers, and also studied in Hong Kong for half a year as a college exchange student. I am especially a big fan of Asian countries, but at the same time I have a strong longing for Western cultures.
Waiting for your contact. See you in Tokyo! (^_^)

Namie showed us around Harajuku and Shibuya for a couple of hours! We were able to see Meiji Jingu, Takeshita St and Shibuya Crossing. She went out of her way and spent some extra time with us to help my mum find some items for her friend which I am grateful for! Wish we had booked Namie for a longer if I had known it would take more time than expected!! Would recommend to book for at least 4-5 hours to go around Harajuku if you want to see Meiji Jingu and go shopping as there are many shopping streets (Takeshita Street, Cat Street, Omotesando Street). Thank you for showing us around and sorry for keeping you back for almost an hour.
Hi, thank you very much that you rated me five-star! You and your mom were both warm-hearted, also patient with a packed-train ride, a long walk, and heavy rain. I was not really good at time management but finally your mom could get that cosmetic at the right place, which I feel relieved about. Thank you for giving me your assist during the hours and the wonderful gift from Australia. I wish you the very best, and please give your mom my regard. Enjoy the itenerary furthermore in Japan! SAFE trip! Namie
Namie is a delightful guide. We feel so lucky to have chosen her. She is very professional yet very friendly. She knows a lot of details not listed in guide books. She is conscientious, and makes sure that we get in the right metro line to get back to our hotel. She went out of her way to take us to places that we are interested in, ie fabrics stores and washi stores and the fish market auction. Her english is very good as she has travelled all over Asia. We highly recommend her. Thank you Namie!!!!!!
Thank you John! I am so happy to see your comment. I hope you will have a safe and fruitful tour to Hakone, Nara, kyoto, and let us meet again on 20th May. Can't wait for the day(^_^)
Namie provided a marvelous tour with great local experience to insightful historical stops.
Hi, thank you for the review. I myself enjoyed the tour with you and learned a lot of cultural gap through our conversation. Luckily my host family in Selangor (1997 summer) will visit Tokyo this autumn, which makes me so motivated to go to Malaysia again. We unioned on ******* a few days ago. I also hope to see you again someday. Have wonderful days ahead, good luck in everything!
We had wonderful 3 days in Tokyo with Namie. She showed great care for us , tried to help us with everything even for our plans in the evenings. She completed all our program on time and in a very professional way. We were specially impressed with her "human touch" beyond the regular program fullfilment. We recommend Namie cfor every Tokyo visitor
Thank you Daniel, for all the positive messages. Each of you were tough to move around Tokyo from morning to late night, which was really impressive! I was lucky to have a chance to attend you guys, the very first guests from Israel. I learned a lot of culture differences through our conversation. Now I determined to be a better guide to show my future guests more-detailed Japan tips. I really had good experiences in these three days with you cos you are smart travellers and also well-prepared in your daily movement. Thank you again, and good luck on your following trip!
Thank you Namie for a wonderful day in Tokyo. We enjoyed the market, cafes, and exhibitions and you made it so easy and stress free for us to see so much in a short time. We hope to see you again on our next trip. Best wishes. Deborah & Michael
Hi, Deborah. It was nice to hear from you and I appreciate to the heartful message. I hope to see you again either in Tokyo or Bangkok! Say hello to your husband. Namie
