About

Since I was born in a family of Buddhism priest, reiligion is just a part of everyday life to me. Please feel free to participate in some rituals as a memorable experience in Japan. I can also arrange the tour to a small unknown temple where my brother is a priest, though it's located in coutryside of Fukushima prefecture, a little bit far from Tokyo.
And off course, I can guide Tokyo, Narita, Hakone, Mt. Fuji ...and so on. The attraction of Tokyo could be said as mixture of something new and something old. Please feel many attractive dimenshions with me!
I had a chance to live in the Philippines for 5 years, and at that time people are so kind and generous to me. That's the reason why I am a tour guide now to do something helpful for guests from all over the world. So please don't hesitate to tell me your choice, I'm willing to serve you and I'll be with you almost everywhere around Tokyo and Japan!

“ March 7 2020 Tokyo ”

Due to lack of time I decided to hire a Tokyo local guide to make use of our time,most especially for 7 hours. I did not regret to choose Noriko ,she was professional ,punctual ,very knowledgeable and she can feel the feelings of what we really wanted to see. We were so happy because we saw the places we wanted in 7 hours time. We recommend Noriko to all travellers who wanted to see in a short period of time. Thank you 🙏 Maraming Salamat Noriko❤️👍👍👍👍 Teresita and Notker

“ Amazing trip in Japan ”

Noriko was an amazing guide. Took me to beautiful places I would have never seen by myself in Tokyo, Japan where I stayed at. She was very knowledgeable about everything. I had two slightly rainy days in the mornings but she would find something to go see instead of waiting for the rain to stop. What made it even more beautiful was the trip we took to Hakone. For it being my first trip to Japan it was an amazing experience thanks to her. I can't wait for my next visit to Japan and continue my adventures. Thanks Noriko

Noriko:

Hi Edwin, Thank you so much for your great review. I'm glad that you could enjoy a lot. It is also because you researched many things and are open to new things such as food. I was also amazed that you are so kind. I think now your family and frieds are happy sharing your experience. Please come back and continue your adventures! Thanks with regards, Noriko

“ Extremely good tour guide ”

Noriko was punctual, knowledgeable, and conversant. We went to Mt. Fuji and Hakone with her and she did her best to show us whatever she could despite the rain and clouds. She suggested alternative sites because our ropeway was closed due to earthquake recently. Noriko listened to our suggestions and tried to please us as much as possible without jeopodising the schedule and time.

“ A good day to see Mt Fuji ”

Noriko was an able guide who was able to lead us to see Mt Fuji as viewed from Oishi Park. We went to on this trip to see Mt Fuji while Tokyo was having a heat wave, we were able Noriko was able to guide us thru the maze of trains and bus to get there. There were 10+ of us in the group and going from one mode of transportation to another can be daunting but she guided us very well. My only request is that maybe she could have advised us of the availability of chartered bus since we were a big group. Overall. it was a good day to see Mt Fuji as guided by Noriko.

Noriko:

Dear Arthur, Thank you so much for your suggestion. It was a very hot day, so good to escape from Tokyo and feel a nice breeze in the mountaineous area. I had explained to make my itinerary by using public transportation, however, I apologize if you felt it was incovenient. Thank you so much for your choosing Japan as a destination for your memorable family reunion! Sincerely, Noriko
