Hi, I am Hiromi, a National licensed guide in English. I joined TripleLight May 2017. I studied in England and U.S. during my 20s and 30s. I graduated college in NY. While I lived in overseas and experiencing different culture, I had chances to look at Japanese culture from the outside. And I realized its richness and uniqueness. Experiencing different culture was like discovering my own culture.
I live west part of Tokyo with my husband. Whenever we have time we like traveling. Also I have been practicing tea gathering (tea ceremony) about 5 years.
In Tokyo, there exist traditional culture as well as pop culture. There are so many places I would like to show you.
It’s my pleasure to introduce you exquisite part of Tokyo. Let’ enjoy exploring TOKYO with me! I’m looking forward to sharing memorable experience with you.

We enjoyed our tour with Hiromi very much. She planned the tour with us in advance by correspondibg by mail and took our wishes into the plan. We have Two children aged 4 and 8 and the tour was also really Nice for them. She explained about the places we went to and helped us to do different activities along the way. She also answer all our questions we had. IT was noce to spent our frist day in Tokyo with her. I would really reccomend her to other people conciderinf ising a guide in tokyo.
Dear Heidi Thank you very much for your generous review. And I'm really sorry that Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building Observation Decks were unexpectedly closed that day. You and your family are wonderful people. Your lovely children made me smile. I also enjoyed meeting & being with your family very much. Thank you! I wish you and your family's happiness always :)
Hiromi was a great guide. She took us on a tour of her favorite garden. This was great because she knew so much about it and shared many wonderful stories about the landscape and history. After this, we enjoyed a traditional tea ceremony. She translated and explained each part. Overall it was a great morning. I highly recommend Hiromi as your guide!
Dear Kelli Thank you very much for taking my tour and writing review. I also had enjoyable relaxing time with you two. There is Japanese word "Ichigo-ichi-e". Meaning one meeting in one occasion is once-in-a-lifetime. Even though same people, same place, each meeting is different. So the moment is treasure. For me also the meeting and time time spent with you in the tour was my treasure. Again thank you very much!
We had a great time with Hiromi exploring Tokyo. We were very lucky with the January weather and had sunny blue skies so she took us to a lovely park and explained the history behind it. Given that it was January 2nd and many tea houses were closed Hiromi was very limited with her options for finding us an open tea house. She found a wonderful tea ceremony perched high up in a hotel downtown which was completely authentic. Would 100% recommend Hiromi's services to anyone visiting Tokyo. Thank you!
Dear Alice Thank you very much for writing review. I'm so happy to hear you had very good time! I also enjoyed being with you and your friend very much:) Have a wonderful new year & If you ever come to Japan let me know. I'll be so happy talking more about Japanese culture. Again, Thank you!
