About

Hi! I'm Yukiko,Government Certified Guide and worked as Registered Nurse.Thanks to increasing number of repeat clients, referred clients and new clients, tour guide is my current full-time 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 been learning medical English.

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.
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 seven 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!

“ Tokyo/Kawagoe tours ”

Yukiko was an absolute gem! From her pleasant friendly demeanor to her excellent command of English, she was patient and made our first few days in Tokyo very enjoyable. My family and I were taken care of every step of the way. I could rest assured my elderly parents were taken care of while I took my kids to disneysea for a day. Yukiko was also great with my kids, explaining to my teenager things he was curious about, and patient with my younger one. I highly recommend Yukiko for anyone looking for a tour guide in Tokyo!

YUKIKO:

Thank you for your heartfelt review, Sharon!! I'm so happy to hear that the tour was very enjoyable and could support your parents. Please enjoy the rest of your days in Tokyo and Hakone. I hope to meet you and your family again. Let's keep in touch. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Tokyo & Fujiyoshida Tour 2 days ”

Yukiko was a very good tour guide. She was flexible with our requests. Speaks very good English so it was easy to communicate with her. She was very knowledgeable of the areas we toured. She was very sweet and great to have her show us around Tokyo and Fujiyoshida area.

YUKIKO:

Thank you for your warm message, Emma! Flexibility is the point of my private tour and I'd like to approach as much as possible on that day to my client's requests and needs. So I'm pleased to hear that I could cover your requests with a flexible frame of mind. I'm always welcome your next visit to Japan. Please feel free to contact with me again.

“ Two Amazing days in Tokyo! ”

Great experience in Tokyo with Yukiko! Very relaxing and enjoyable trip! We were warmly greeted by Yukiko in the hotel lobby and she gave us a short briefing of our itinerary for that day complete with a map. She is very polite and efficient as well! We had a hassle free time on our whole stay and we were able to focus completely on the tour and sites as she took care of everything else. It made us feel very special. She even helped us make reservations in hard to get to restaurants and she was able to get special vegan dishes for my sister and her family. My Dad has a hard time walking around but Yukiko helped us find wheelchairs to bring him around in. She also helped him get up and down stairs. At the end of our tour which was usually at a restaurant she always made sure to talk t... read more

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for a very nice review, JV! I really appreciated it and happy to hear that. I was so impressed that your father's wealth of knowledge about Japanese history. I will learn more deeply and would like to expand my knowledge and interests. Please contact with me again whenever you visit Japan! Domo Arigatou !!

“ Terrific day out in Tokyo ”

I had a wonderful day out in Tokyo with Yukiko experiencing Japanese 'kawai'. We visited Yanaka Ginza and the Harajuku area with a highlight being the Owl Cafe. Yukiko was an excellent guide, spoke English flawlessly and truly customized our 4hr tour to the requests I made. Tokyo is a wonderful city and my experience was enhanced by Yukiko's guidance.

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much Robert and Krystal! I remember our pleasant time in these areas. We found a lot of "Kawaii" small shops and met "Totemo (very) Kawaii" owls! I had a very good time with you. I would like to show you more about my city, Tokyo next time. Please contact with me for your next visit to Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimahsita!!
