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.

We had an amazing day with our lovely tour guide Keiko. She is very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Japan and Tokyo (history, everything about the temples we visited, custom, ...). She knows authentic places to eat & drink. It was a real pleasure spending the day with her.
Keiko was our ideal guide, providing lots of information without us needing to ask. Her knowledge of history is wonderful. Exactly what we wanted. She even brought photos of the Imperial family and illustrations of what Tokyo looked like in the past. She guided us seamlessly around Senso-ji Temple, it's market street and Imado Shrine. Imado was a new one for her but Keiko still provided us plenty of information about it. We had four different guides for our 10 day trip to Japan and Keiko was by far the best!
Keiko was just what we were looking for in a tour guide. She was personable, spoke English well and showed us her country like only she could do. After leaving her we went on a cruise and after each tour we all said we wished we could have found another tour guide from Triple Lights in stead of the big ship tour guides!
My family and I enjoyed our tour with Keiko very much. We had a half day tour with her at Tsukiji market and Ginza. She was knowledgeable and very patient with our group of 6. We all had a great time, and definitely would book her again in the future!
Ms. Kieko is very helpful and knowledgeable in guiding us to the different tourist spots. And she tried her best and succeeded in finding the last part of cherry blossom trees which we longed to see. A very excellent guide. We enjoyed our trip with her
