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!

“ Fabulous Tour Guide and Fabulous Tour ”

Yukiko was a flexible and knowledgeable tour guide who customized our tour to our interests. She took us all over Tokyo for 2 days and we felt that she exposed us thoroughly to the culture and the people. Her English was excellent and easy to understand. She also made 2 oragami dinosaures for our young grandsons when she learned they loved dinosaurs. We were only sorry that she was not accompanying us on the rest of our trip! We highly recommend her as a guide.

“ Practical efficient way to see Japan ”

Excellent tour guide. Punctual, efficient, researched your needs before arriving , provided maps and had literature and pictures to aide her explanations, understood what interests me and took me to those areas of interest. I would never have been able to navigate all those trains so efficiently. Worth the money ! Esp if time is limited you could spend more time navigating around and getting lost on your own ! Excellent English and wonderful interpersonal skills. Would highly recommend. Esp if English is your first language.

“ Friendly, Versatile, Knowledgeable - Great Experience! ”

From the moment we met Yukiko on September 1st, she was just a pleasure to be around and we were thrilled to have her as our guide around Tokyo. She was dressed in a beautiful kimono, and displayed the highest level of professionalism from the moment we began until the moment we said good-bye. She listened to all of our requests and escorted us to all the places we wanted to see, and was particularly adept at planning with us on short notice. Based on our suggestions/wishes she then embellished our tour with other nearby interesting places to see which enriched our experience and understanding. Yukiko was smart, calm, poised, and attentive. In just a half day, she shared a tremendous amount of historical and cultural information with us, answered all of our questions, and engaged us in entertaining conversations. Yukiko also went out of her way to help us with my wife’s Celiac disease and food allergies/intolerances. We were able to quickly go into a grocery store with her and she pointed out things that were “Gluten Free” and just as important, things that were not. She even took the time to prepare printed phrases to use in stores and restaurants. Overall, Yukiko was an exceptional guide. She enriched and enhanced our time in Japan. We highly recommend her and would seek her out again if we return. Thank you Yukiko! David and Diane
