Hi, I am Shizuko. I have been working as a national certified tour guide and a certified tour conductor for years. I was born in Kobe, famous for Kobe-beef, and now live in Yokohama city with my family.
Yokohama is located between Tokyo and Kamakura
I like travelling like you. I have been to more than 40 countries in the world and met many warm heated people there and had nice time. They are still unforgettable experience for me.
These experience helped me to be a tour guide.
It's my pleasure to know where you really want to visit, what you want to see, what you want to experience in Japan. Please feel free to ask me your requests.
I will do my best to answer it with Japanese style of hospitality called "OMOTENASHI."
Let me share your time in Japan to make your trip will be a wonderful and memorable one.

“ The Ultimate Japan Guide For The Seasoned Traveler ”

Shizuko is the perfect guide for that person who wants to see it all and get intelligent insights into Japanese culture and points of interest on the run. We planned our tour in advanced; "Shizu" (She-zoo) responded promptly and made excellent recommendations. She purchased tickets / made reservations for us in advance and was right on time. In an effort to optimize our time on the ground, Shizu introduced us to the Tokyo subway system and the VERY efficient PASMO IC card (It's ultra-efficient for cashless on / off subway / bus travel; vending machine purchases; and more) which allowed us to sail through the lines.

Dear John, Thank you very much for sending me such a warm review. I’m very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me. It was my pleasure to customize the tour and reserve tickets. I myself enjoyed accompanying you and your wife very much. It was nice meeting you all the time. While guiding, I was impressed with your deep knowledge of Japanese history and culture which gave me a good motivation to study harder. I felt I was so lucky to be chosen as your guide. I hope that you had a wonderful vacation this time including Japan. Thank you very much again for sending me your warm review. With best regards, Shizuko
