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 four 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!

“ Half day Tokyo city tour ”

We had a wonderful time with Yukiko visiting Asakusa and Meji Shrine Yukiko was very friendly, extremely punctual, and knowleadgeable. We learned much about Japan and its culture. She was very practical in scheduling our interests within our limited time frame. And she gave us recommendations for activities after the tour. Thank you Yukiko

“ Awesome experiences for us ”

I could not find a better words to describe your services for our family. We are well taken care of, having you is the best experience that we could ever have. As a family with a 4-years and 7-years kids, we are already restricted by the time and movement that we have during tour. However, we still tour Tokyo on places that we wanted to visit and also based on your recommendations. We enjoy the trip to Karamura and Tsuji Market and experiencing the local food and of course, the Kimono. Now, we are back home, we missed you so much. We hope to see you again.

“ A memorable tour with Yukiko ”

We were happy to engage Yukiko for our trip to Kawaguchiko. Yukiko planned a detailed itinerary for us and all panned out smoothly. She was also patient. We had a great time and our trip was memorable. Without Yukiko , I don't think it was easy to have made it by ourselves especially with a young kid with us. Thanks Yukiko and we hope to meet you again !

“ Pop and Modern Sights of Tokyo ”

We were very fortunate to select Yukiko as our guide for a day to see the modern sights of Tokyo. She met us at our hotel wearing a beautiful kimono, which carried respect as we moved through crowded trains and streets to visit Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, Shibuya Crossing and Akihabara. She was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and well-organised and easily communicated with us in English. We thought Yukiko was delightful and we thoroughly recommend her for any tour she offers. Thank you for a very enjoyable day, Yukiko!
