About

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!

“ Day tour of Tokyo ”

One of the best guides ever - fully informed about history, religion, nature. Yukiko planned a wonderful day tour of Tokyo based on our particular interests and arranged everything from transportation to lunch. Outstanding

“ We highly recommend Yukiko! ”

Yukiko was a fantastic guide. She speaks English very well, and she is informative. Yukiko led us (my husband, 10 year old daughter and me) around Tokyo on a custom tour. I had given her a handful of places that we wanted to see and Yukiko arranged everything. She met us at our hotel, and we took the subway to the Tsukiji fish market. From there, we walked to a restaurant where she had previously made reservations. After lunch, we walked to the Hamarikyu Gardens and drank tea in a teahouse overlooking the gardens. Next we took the riverboat to Asakasa and visited the Senso-Ji shrine as well as walked down the souvenir street. From here we took the subway to Akihabara. Knowing our interests, she took us to specific stores that we would like. From there, she showed us how to take the subway back to our hotel. We would have never been able to see as much as we did without Yukiko’s help. We took this tour on our very first full day in Tokyo, and it was the best choice. Yukiko did a great job of explaining the subway system, helping us to purchase a pasmo card, explaining customs explaining the history of the sights. She is patient and wanted us to enjoy ourselves. Yukiko was wonderful with our daughter who had many questions; and she even brought along a worksheet to teach her Japanese. We really liked her personality and she was really nice to be around.

“ One day tour with Yukiko as tour guide ”

I would recommend this type of tour (walking and taking the trains) to those who are not familiar with Japan and its train system. Yukiko is very responsible and goes out of her way to accommodate our requests to make changes to our planned itinerary for the day. Although it may seem relatively expensive for an individual but if you have a group of 8 people like ours, the amount each person needs to pay is reasonable.

“ 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.
