Hi, Konnichiwa! I'm Yukiko. I am a Government Certified Guide Interpreter and a Registered Nurse. I also have a license for being a food sanitation manager.
I was born and raised in Tokyo. I used to teach Japanese culture to local elementary school students when I stayed in Canada, America and New Zealand. My happiest moments with these children were when they look forward to another lessons every week. It was a challenging job but this experience broaden my horizon and prompted me to become an English tour guide.
If you take my tour, you will learn deeply about everything that comes into your view, get local information and experience many things.
I am a mother of a six years old girl. So I'd be glad to welcome families with young children and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask.
I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one.
Thank you, Arigatou!

Our personalised day tour with Yukiko was fantastic. It was definitely a highlight of our Japanese holiday. We had an amazing day visiting many tourist sites in Tokyo. Having a private tour allowed us to personalise our day to suit our family needs. Yukikko was extremely professional, kind, considerate and answered all our questions along the way. Do not hesitate to book a private tour. We highly recommend Yukiko as a private guide. 5 stars from us! Thank you Yukiko Regards, Sophie
Yukiko taught an origami lesson to three children, 8,10, and 12 years old. She was wonderful! She began with simple objects and moved to increasingly complicated creations as the kids caught on quickly through her patient and skillful instruction. She wore a kimono which they also loved, and really enjoyed their time with her. I'd highly recommend Yukiko to any family!
Yukiko was our tour guide for June 5, 2018. Yukiko was an excellent tour guide, she was flexible as far as customizing our tour and knowledgeable about the Japanese culture and history. She researched and answered all our questions, and provided many insights and recommendations as to how we can enjoy our Japan tour. She took us to an amazing revolving sushi place, which the whole family enjoyed. Best of all, Yukiko was so accommodating to my aunt who had a slight mobility problem. I think this made the tour extra special as she was so patient with her. I recommend Yukiko to everyone who is going to Japan for the first time.
Yukiko was GREAT! Even though we only spent one day with her, she was amazing! Very patient!! I would DEFINITELY recommend her to all my friends and family!
We were coming to Japan as a 3 generation family with ages 6-76. We were initially skeptical about any tour guides thinking we could manage on our own with HYPERDIA and google maps. Wow we were all surprised at how easy it was to maneuver with a guide the first day. We booked two half days and asked all the questions we could so we could figure out what we wanted and how to move forward. Yokiko made our trip a breeze. She became a part of our family looking out for us and asking questions in Japanese to locals to get us the answers. Our smallest was so sad she wasn’t going to be joining us thru the rest of the trip. She is amazing and spent time getting to know each one of us so she could help us enjoy her country. There is not a better guide in Tokyo.
