Hi. My name is Keiko Hatada. I'm a National Government Licenced Guide Interpreter. I was born in Tokyo and used to work as a junior high school teacher over 30 years here. So I know about Tokyo a lot. One of my hobbies is Japanese history. Finding similarities in the world history is also a lot of fun to me.
Tokyo is a very attractive city with two very interesting features, traditional city with 450- year -old Edo(former name of Tokyo) culture and a very leading edge city with a very robust modern culture. I'd be happy to share either or both of them with you. I'm happy to arrange a tour according to your desires and look forward to having good time with you.

“ Wonderful ”

Had a wonderful day with Keiko. Very informative, knowledgeable, interesting and fun to be with. Looking forward to our food tour together!


Dear Judy Thank you very much for your wonderful review of our tour. I am very glad that I was able to show you both traditional and modern part of Tokyo. All of you were so friendly to me and tried to listen to my story and understand my poor joke. It encouraged me so much . I 'd like to show you other faces of Tokyo in the next two days . I hope you will enjoy all of them. Warm Regards, Keiko.

“ A Wonderful Guide! ”

Keiko was such a fabulous guide, she showed us many special places in Tokyo and even spent a day under umbrellas walking thru parks. She arranged all of our sightseeing according to our interests and even made a reservation for a Japanese tea ceremony. She is delightful and we highly recommend her.


Dear Deborah Thank you very much for your wonderful review of our tour. We visited Asakusa→ tea ceremony experience at Shinagawa → Hamarikyu Garden Then next day, Yanaka → Ueno park. During the tour, you were trying to communicate with local people and understand Japanese culture. It's just like the philosophy of tea ceremony, treasure each meeting . I was happy to share good time with you, and maybe ladies in kimono felt in the same way, too. I wish you'll come back to your country with a lot of good memories . Please say hello to your friend. I am looking forward to meeting you again in Tokyo. With warm Regards, Keiko

“ Touring with Keiko ”

Keiko is very knowledgeable about many parts of Tokyo and the history. She makes sure we understand everything we are looking at. She is very organized and also lets us set the pace.


Dear Ron, Thank you very much for your wonderful review of my tour. I was very lucky to have fantastic cherry- blossom- viewing- tour with you who has eyes to see beautiful things such as Japanese arts, flowers, sceneries,... etc. I was happy because both of you were interested in what I talked about Japanese history and culture. I hope your tour will be filled with good memories and good pictures. Let me say again " Thank you very much." to both of you. Keiko

“ Compassionate and full of wonderful information. ”

Keiko guided my wife and I in the Mt. Takeo area one one of our days. The other day was to Urae Park and Yanata neighborhood with my wife and another couple. Keiko is full of information and educated us as well as answered the many questions that we had. She is very conscientious and during our exploration of Urae Park was always sure we were all within range and in site since it was a Saturday and at the height of cherry blossom time which meant that the park was crowded with people. I highly recommend Keiko.


Dear Robert Thank you very much for your wonderful review of my tour. I was very happy that I was able to show you cherry blossoms in full bloom. They were so beautiful, weren't they ? On the first day, we visited Okunitama Shrine in Fuchu, an old and traditional center of culture and religion. Then we climbed Mt. Takao, famous for Tengu. I think few tourists have visited there before, but you and your wife were interested in everything, especially in some special methods to improve your physical conditions. The next day, we visited Ueno and Yanaka, famous for cherry blossom viewings. I was very glad to know that all of you try to understand Japan from many view points. I hope you will have great time in Japan and come back to your home with a lot of memory. Best wishes, keiko

“ Great guide ”

Keiko did a great job despite the bad weather. Communication with her was smooth and friendly. She really did a great job and I would recommend her if you want a nice guide in Tokyo.


Dear Laurene, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. You tried to have a good time together in the cold rainy weather. Fortunately you were able to see beautiful Kawazu-sakura cherry blossoms in Yoyogi Park. Then you enjoyed tonkotsu-ramen. I hope you will come back to Tokyo someday and find other faces of Tokyo. Please say hello to your friends. Many Thanks, Keiko
