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.

“ Whirlwind Tour ”

Keiko thank you very much for showing us Tokyo in a day, and for sharing your knowledge about Japan and it’s glorious history with grace and humour. We all discovered so much and had a great day !


Fear Effie, Thank you very much for your wonderful review of my tour. It was just a four-hour-tour, but we did a lot : Asakusa, Ginza, Harajuku. Each of you had specific purposes of this visit, and it was my pleasure to accomplish some of them. I hope I'd like to satisfy all of them Maybe next time. I am looking forward to meeting you again in Tokyo. Best Wishes, Keiko

“ Extremely good tour guide ”

Keiko showed us Tokyo and the rail system in a day. She was very conversant in English. Keiko went out of her way to please us by going to places we desired that were not on the itinerary without losing too much time. She kept on time schedule. She was knowledge about the places we visited and knew the rail system well so that we did not have to walk too many steps.


Dear Larry, Thank you very much for your wonderful review of my tour. I am glad that you and your families enjoyed my tour even though it rained so heavily. We visited Asakusa, Harajuku, Shibuya and Pokémon center. It was my pleasure to show you the place you really wanted to visit and see your families sharing good time together. I hope I will be able to meet you again in the near future in Tokyo. Please say hello to Yasuyo who was a typical Yamato-nadeshiko. . Best Wishes, Keiko

“ So much knowledge and a very enjoyable day ”

We started the day with Keiko meeting us at our hotel and assisting us with purchasing transportation tickets. From Shinjuku we went on to Asakusa and visited the temples and shops leading into it. Visited the Shinto shrine here also. Next we had lunch together where Keiko made excellent suggestions for my fussy family who all loved their lunch. On to Ginza where we stopped by Nissan and hubby got to drool over all of the concept cars before looking through the shopping district and then on to Meiji shrine. Such a beautiful place with so much history. Keiko happily answered all of our questions and was great with the kids. Had we not had Keiko to take us atound, I doubt very much we would have even gotten to the first destination. From start to finish our whole experience has been fa... read more


Dear Yvette, Thank you very much for your wonderful review of the tour with me. I am very glad to know that you enjoyed my tour. I was also very happy to have fantastic and heart-warming time with your family. According to the weather forecast, we might have shower and thunder. But we were lucky enough to have a beautiful day. We experienced lucky things today, touched the eye of a dragon under the lantern at Asakusa thunder gate, received the smoke of incense burner to purify ourselves at Sensoji Buddhist temple, purified ourselves by a scoop of water at Meiji Shinto shrine and walked around the sacred forest . So I am sure all of you will have good days not only in Japan but also in your future . And I remember the handsome boy bought a fabric case designed like a frog in Asakusa . I... read more

“ Highlights of Tokyo ”

Despite the heavy rains at times, Keiko gave us a tremendous tour of some of the highlights of Tokyo on our 8 hour day with her. She had delightful insights into ll the places we visited and was determined that we were going to have a good time despite the weather. We were very pleased and highly recommend Keiko for her energy and expertise. Ken and Terry Thorsen


Dear Ken & Terry Thank you very much for your wonderful review of the tour with me. We visited traditional parts of Tokyo, Tsukiji, Hamarikyu garden, Asakusa and Harajuku. We were lucky enough to enjoy there exclusively because of the heavy rain. Greeneries looked very fresh cleansed by the rain. We walked a lot because I sometimes forgot your age but I remembered your name, ”健” = healthy. I hope you will come back to Japan to enjoy different season and see you again. Please say hello to another Keiko. Warm Wishes, Keiko

“ Excellent tour guide ”

I spent 2 days with Keiko and found her polite, friendly and very knowledgeable about the city. I would recommend Keiko for anyone interested in the history of Tokyo


Dear Bethan, thank you very much for your review of my tour. I am very glad that you enjoyed the days in Tokyo. You were so interested in various factors of Tokyo, such as social issues as well as its history. I was lucky enough to learn about British social situation from you , and it was a great hint to solve our problems. At the same time, I noticed that I need to study more about that area. Thank you very much for your kindness and I hope you will have a great time in Japan. I am looking forward to meeting you again in Tokyo. Warm Regards, Keiko
