About

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.

Keiko was excellent! Very informative and nice! We had a wonderful tour despite the heat.

Keiko:

Dear MaryAnn, Thank you very much for your nice review. I was very happy to share good time with you during my Tokyo tour. I especially remember you enjoyed interesting lunch, ASIMO robot, Gundum robot...etc. I guess you had a good time at Takeshita shopping street, didn't you ?. I hope I will be able to see you in the near future in Tokyo. Please say hello to all of your families. Best Wishes, Keiko

“ Amazing Day ”

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:

Dear Ralf, Thank you very much for writing a wonderful review of my tour. I was so happy showing you around Tokyo because all of you were so enthusiastic in experiencing Japanese culture and tradition. Especially I was really glad that you were able to see a wedding couple in traditional costume at Meiji shrine and beautiful portable shrines at Asakusa. I also remember you tried ramen for lunch and Japanese sweets( ningyo yaki) and kalpis( white drink) and tsukudani( seasoned with soy sauce and sugar). All of them are good memory to me. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your days in Japan and I will be able to see you again in the near future. Arigato Gozaimashita(Thank you very much) Keiko

“ The Best Guide of our Trip ”

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:

Dear Bethany, Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour. You were so interested in the history of Asakusa , and it was my pleasure to show you around historical parts of it as well as popular parts. It was my first visit to Imado shrine, and I was able to imagine the traditional atmosphere of it in Edo period. Also you found an interesting shop: traditional candy handcraft shop. I was really happy to have a good time talking about history. Thank you very much. I hope I will be able to show you another historical places in Tokyo. Please say hello to your friend. Best Wishes, Keiko

“ Wonderful day in Tokyo ”

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!

Keiko:

Dear Wendy, Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour. All of you tried to experience Japanese culture very positively like Scarlet Ohara in "Gone with the wind". For example, you tasted sweet eggs at Tsukiji Fish market, you tried to manipulate chopsticks during lunch time, tried to remember "arigatou" or "thank you". You looked very happy when you took pictures of young girls in kimono under cherry blossoms. I 'd like to show you different Japan in different season. I'm looking forward to seeing you in the near future in Tokyo. Please say hello to your friends. Best Wishes, Keiko

“ Wonderful Tour Guide ”

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!

Keiko:

Dear Tami, Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour. I think you tasted most delicious food at Tsukiji Fish market. I remember you were going to have a party with a lot of delicious food and dishes from Tsukiji and Ginza. I am sure you had really a good time with your family. I am looking forward to seeing all of you in the near future in Tokyo. Please say hello to your families. Best Regards, Keiko
