Hi! I'm Yukiko. I'm a Government Certified Guide and a Registered Nurse.Thanks to increasing number of repeat clients, referred clients and new clients, tour guide is my current main job.
I got National Tour Guide licence in 2015. I've expanded knowledge and a range of tour guiding area including Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone, Mt.Fuji, Kawagoe, Nagano and west side of Japan such as Kyoto and Osaka. As I have a base of experience as a registered Nurse, I have a better understanding for elderly people and mobility challenged clients. I've experienced to do a tour for people who use a wheel chair, electric wheel chair and cane. I have a certificate of medical English interpreter as well.
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 for about a year and a half. 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.
I also have been learning Mandarin(Chinese language) once a week since 2019.
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 eight 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 me anythings.
I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one.
Thank you, Arigatou!

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
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!!
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.
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!!
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.
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!!

We visited Japan for 4 days and decided to have Yukiko as our guide for 2 days. Fortunately she was available during the days we were traveling. She was very responsive and insured that we had a perfect trip. She informed us about the weather forecast and helped us to swap Mount Fuji with Tokyo tour to ensure we have the best experience for Mount Fuji and Tokyo. She also helped us to arrange a tour for Kyoto with one of her colleagues with triple lights. Provided us with detailed navigation instructions to how to get to Kyoto and back. She was always at time and ensured our needs and requests were met. In short, amazing experience. All we did was to follow her and listen / learn about history of beautiful Japan. THANK YOU.
Thank you so much for your kind review and Happy new year, Rajiv! I'm sure that you have been spent a great time with your whole family in India. It was a pleasure to meet you and glad the arrangement of tours worked well. For ensuring my clients's requests and need, my service and assistance will become above and beyond their expectations, I've keep learning and will continue to do my best. DOMO ARIGATOU GOZAIMASHITA!!
