About

My name is Yukiko. I'm a Licensed Guide and a Registered Nurse.Thanks to increasing number of repeat, referred and new clients, tour guide is my current main job.

I was born and raised in Tokyo. After passing National tour guide examination, I have been worked as a professional tour guide since 2015. I've experienced to guide in various area near Tokyo as well as in Nagano, Kyoto and Osaka. I can do a tour for a wide range of clients such as solo traveler, couple, family, mobility challenged client and a big group. I am a mother of eight years old girl. So I'd be glad to welcome families with young children as well.

I used to teach Japanese cultures to elementary students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 at local and private elementary schools when I lived in Canada, United states, and New Zealand (2005-2006). My happiest moments with these children were when they look forward to another lesson every week. All lessons were customized and prepared after discussing with each classroom teacher. It was a challenging job, but this experience broaden my horizon and prompted me to become an English tour guide.

I also have a license of Registered Nurse and a Medical interpreter.  I've still worked as a nurse during off- tourism season so that I've kept a medical back ground. There is a common thinking between Tour guide and Nurse, both jobs are required to put myself into their shoes. I'll make plans considering their physical conditions and arrange any supports after discussing about the tour.  I've experienced to do several tours for mobility challenged clients who have intractable disease and have a difficulty for long walking. Mobility challenged customers (cane/wheelchair) are always welcomed.  

I'd love to make your trip meaningful and unforgettable. Please feel free to contact with me anytime.   
I'm looking forward to meeting you in my tour! Arigatou!

“ Excellent! ”

This was my first trip to Tokyo. I booked 4 hours with Yukiko and it was great! She is very friendly and helpful. She helped me buy a Suica card and explained how to use the metro. We went to Asakusa and Ginza. Yukiko had lots of information to share and even helped me with my shopping! I would book her again and highly recommend her.

YUKIKO:

Thank you for your wonderful review, Liza! I appreciate it. I'm sure that you've been enjoying to stay in Tokyo and discovered many new things for you. Seeing is believing. Even you've watched it on TV or book before, seeing them on your eyes and talking with local people always leave a memorable impression. I always welcome your next visit. Please enjoy the rest of your days in Tokyo. Domo Arigatou!!

“ Wonderful full-day tour of Tokyo for our family ”

Our full-day tour of Tokyo with Yukiko was amazing. She is punctual, charming, knowledgeable, incredibly well-organised and her English is excellent. She had informative folders for each location and it was a pleasure to hear her talk about each landmark or area we were visiting. I had prompt and frequent contact with Yukiko immediately after inquiring about her services, and she was very flexible and helpful in suggesting and amending itineraries until it suited our requirements. Yukiko was also wonderful at engaging and interacting with our two young daughters (aged 6 and 11). They loved her origami lessons on the longer subway trips. She was able to organise lunch for us at an Okonamiyaki restaurant in Asakusa, and with her recommendations we were able to enjoy this traditional Jap... read more

YUKIKO:

Thank you for your heartfelt review, Des! I really appreciated it. The day was your last day of your entire trip and also it was the only day that you could spend in central Tokyo, so I wanted to make it a real pleasant one for you and your family. I'm glad that you enjoyed each place we visited and my interacting activities. I hope those experiences would broaden children's horizon and prompt their interests about Japan. I always welcome your next visit. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Very cultural and full of information ”

Yukiko is a lovely guide. She took into consideration my interests, my wishes and my budget. She showed me around the places i said i was interested in as well as came up with amazing suggestions i would have not thought of. She made the tour enjoyable and full of information that i would have not been able to get otherwise. The pace of the tour was tailored to what i mentioned. Moreover, she is a lovely person and very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend.

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Maria! I appreciated it very much and pleased to hear that the tour was enjoyable and meaningful. Japan has many nice and beautiful traditional cultures which have been still alive. I think that the concept and ideas of these traditional cultures naturally influences on our thinking and attitudes. I also would like to learn more about your country's traditional cultures as well, especially the culture of tea. I hope you enjoy the rest of your days in Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimshita!!

“ 1 Day Tour in Yokohama ”

We booked a 1 day tour in Yokohama with Yukiko and found it very pleasing. From the start of the booking process we had a long and continuous chat as to what to expect and detailed information about the tour. Yukiko responded well with all of our questions prior to booking and make everything simple and clear. On the day of the tour, she helped us guide with the process to get to Yokohama because we opted to meet her there at the station. We are glad to be guided well on the day and we found Yukiko to be very well mannered, easy to understand, serving, and informative. We would recommend anyone to be guided with Yukiko. Cheers, Joseph and family.

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your prompt review, Joseph!! It was a pleasant meeting with you and your family on that day. I'm glad that you've visited to different places and experienced something new for you in this time. I'd like to show you many other beautiful places in Japan as well as unique experiences for your next visit. Please stay healthy and looking forward to meeting you again in the future. Domo Arigatou!!
