I started tour guide for guests in 2016. My expertise is in Hakone and would be happy to extend tours to Kamakura, Mt.Fuji and Tokyo area. Motivation for me is to interact with guests from various countries in the world and to provide "only one experience" in Japan. My hobbies are playing soccer, watching sport games, reading history books, travels with family, and movies. I'm expecting to meet you and talk about these topics.

“ Wonderful trip with a wonderful guide ”

The day was wonderfully planned. We got to see what was planned ahead. Kochi is a wonderful guide! We had enough time to do all the itinerary for the day with no rush. He’s friendly and warm. We will definitely recommend him to anyone who wish to have a private guide. Warmest greetings from Singapore, Lucy n Joshua


Thank you for your review and kind message. I also had a good and happy time with you and your son. Enjoy the rest for Japan stay.

“ Hakone Walking Tour ”

Junichiro was an excellent guide and accommodated our love of walking to show us the best of Hakone. We had a great day and got a perfect view of Mt Fuji, a Japanese tea ceremony and we used all the modes of transport available in the area. Junichiro was also able to solve some of our accommodation problems, luggage forwarding and he also recommended a great place for dinner. A great experience. We would highly recommend Junichiro as a guide.


Jenny san. Thanks for your nice review and comments. I can easily imagine you can continue walking very fast on some hills in the world. -Kochi

“ Perfect day in a perfect City ”

My wife and I booked Junchiro (Kochi, his family Name) for a day trip in Hakone. We lost our Hakone Free Passes in Tokyo and when we let Kochi know he picked up a couple at Odawara station and we were able to reimburse him instead of spending the day going to pick up new ones. Kochi picked us up from our hotel and from that time forward the day was amazing. Kochi has a vast knowledge of the area and his English is immpecable. We saw everything the town had to offer. We had black eggs at Owakudani, took the trolly to the open air museum, built hand made crafts, and on the pirate boat on lake Ashi. All in all our day was perfect and we would have changed a thing.... Kochi takes pictures the entire time and sends them to you at the end of the trip. Would absolutely book again. Thank you Kochi... read more


Ben and Emily, thanks for your quick feedback and kind message. I really enjoyed guiding such nice couple and warmed up even in cold wind on the mountain top. Have the best time in the rest of the journey.

“ Days in Hakone ”

We had a great time with Junichiro San in Hakone. He showed us the various sites and was able to give us insight on the different monuments etc. Mt Fuji was a disappointment because of weather but he gave us a great trip despite that


Suresh-san. Thank you for your kind message and feedback. I also had good time with nice group of friends. -Kochi

“ Hakone adventure ”

We hired Kochi-sun for a day to guide us in Hakone and had a fantastic, carefree day full of great sights and beautiful nature. Our guide provided interesting information at every sight and took great pictures of us, which he shared after the tour. I rarely have so many beautiful pictures of both myself and my husband together, so I really appreciated this extra step. We could have visited Hakone on our own, but I don’t think we would have been able to see and do so much in one day without a guide. Thanks to Kochi-sun, we were even able to end our long day in a private onsen, which we enjoyed very much. I highly recommend Kochi-sun if you have limited time in Hakone. Many people thought we should have stayed the night there, but I felt we really did accomplish everything we wanted to do du... read more
