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 six 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!

“ A locals Tokyo ”

I requested Yukiko show me her Tokyo and to include a garden. After spending 4 days in Tokyo navigating the rail and transport system it was wonderful that Yukiko took over the thinking allowing me the chance to relax and just go. We visited a beautiful garden the fish market where we had a most memorable Sushi lunch then onto a Temple where a religious ceremony was to take place. Yukiko’s planning was inclusive and thorough in the lead up to my trip to Japan. Thank you Yukiko.

YUKIKO:

Thank you for taking your time to write a review, Barbara! One of my great opportunities during our conversation was that I could hear about the legend tour guide, Joe Okada in Kyoto. I was amazed when I heard his age, 88 years old! As one of great senior guides in Japan, I have respect his attitude and vitality. I'll keep to do my best to progress my guiding skills and broaden my horizon. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!

“ First day in Tokyo ”

Yukiko's tour was a lovely way to begin my first day in Tokyo. She was very professional, having discussed our itinerary via email she prepared a plan for our four hours together that was really enjoyable and informative. Yukiko was friendly and knowledgeable and I gained an insight into Japanese culture that I would never have achieved just walking around by myself. I had requested that she help me gain an understanding of the train network. She had prepared me maps and information and over our time together, patiently explained the intricacies of the system so that I would feel confident traveling around Tokyo. I feel ready to take on Tokyo alone today!! Overall this was a great way to get an introduction to Tokyo through a local's eyes. I would have no hesitation reccomending Yuki... read more

YUKIKO:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Elaine!! How was your day today? I hope everything went well. I'm so happy to hear that the tour was helpful to get an introduction to my city, Tokyo and made your day pleasant one. I hope you can experience something different, memorable and fun during your stays in Tokyo and Kanazawa. Please visit Japan again! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Money well spent! ”

Yukiko took us through two whirlwind days around Tokyo. She was punctual, knowledgeable, and friendly! Just having her lead us through the public transportation nightmare that is the Tokyo transit system was worth every penny spent on a private guide. Thanks for an amazing trip!

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I'm pleased to hear that the tour was worth to spend your time and money. I always hope my tour would be meaningful and memorable for my clients so that I'm very happy. I wish you'll have a great time in other cities on your pace and a lot of beautiful memories will stay in your mind. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ 4 day tour ”

Yukiko was amazing! She was knowledgeable, friendly and always did her best. Yukiko was always accommodating and trying to fit our itinerary. She always provided alot of info about the places we were going to visit. She took care of everything for us. If it was raining she would be prepared with umbrellas and raincoats for all of us. If it was hot, she would have fans for us to cool down with. Yukiko was so caring to our family. My daughter and son really loved Yukiko. She was more than a guide, she became our friend! Thank you Yukiko for everything! I loved the 7 lucky cats you drew! See you again soon! Take care!

YUKIKO:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Christine! It is very warm and I am impressed. Every places we visited and the time we spent together will last in my heart as a great memory. I hope 7 lucky cats will bring more happiness and good luck to you and your family. I always welcome your next visit. See you again! Domo Arigatou!!

“ 2 days touring Tokyo ”

Yukiko was our guide in Tokyo. We had 2 days booked for my family, my husband and 2 children ages 11 and 12. Yukkio was very knowledgeable and flexible, we never felt pressure to keep to the itinerary. She picked great sites and restaurants for us. She even went out of her way to find a soccer shop, so my son could purchase a Japanese Soccer shirt! She really did her best to ensure that the kids were engaged and having a good time. When we return to Tokyo, we will definitely reach out to Yukiko!

YUKIKO:

Thank you very much for your warm and heartfelt review, Jennifer! I really appreciated it. I also thank you to share your valuable time in Tokyo with me. I'd like to improve my guiding skills more for your future visit. There are many attractive sites in Tokyo and nearby area that I would like to show you. I welcome your visit always. Thank you once again! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
