Hi, I am Junko, a national licensed tour guide in English.
I can also speak Italian to have a normal conversation.
I was born and raised in Tokyo so I could say that I know Tokyo inside out. I believe Tokyo is a beautiful and traditional city as well as a modern and exciting city. In addition to famous tourist sites, there remain many attractions that are not well known among tourists.
I have had experiences of guiding foreign tourists as a volunteer guide for several years before becoming a licensed tour guide. So I can give you useful suggestions in traveling Japan. I truly like meeting people from different countries and cultures and sharing the fun of discovering Tokyo and its vicinity.
I can always tailor the tour to fit your interests and prepare an itinerary so that your stay will be unforgettable.
Why don’t you explore Tokyo with me? Please feel free to contact me at any time! I am looking forward to meeting you in Tokyo.

Junko was a a great guide. She arrived at our hotel early and had set a nice itinerary for us but was very flexible as well. Her English was good enough that I had no problem understanding. She was personable and friendly. She explained a lot about the Japanese people, their history, beliefs, habits and customs. She had much information about each place we visited. She even helped clean me up after a bird flew overhead and dropped a “load” on my shirt. She also helped us purchase tickets for the Narita Express while we were at the train station, since we were leaving a couple of days after. Junko gave us a little parting gift at the end of our tour. Thank you, Junko, for a wonderful day in Tokyo!
Thank you so much for a nice review, Randy! I am really happy that you enjoyed my tour. I had a good time with you, too. Hope you will come back to Japan in spring to see cherry blossoms. Thank you, again. Junko
Junko guided two of our passengers for 1 day in Tokyo. She was great to work with prior to their tour and helped to arrange the tour details. We will use her service again! Thank you Junko!
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review!! I am very glad that you like my tour. Thank you again. Junko
Junko, worked hard to plan a wonderful day for us. She was able to change the day as needed as we had some deadlines to meet. She was able to source out tickets for the sumo tournament and our evening cruise was a wonderful way to end the day. Thank you for all your hard work.

Junko was very friendly, patient and knowledgeable, with excellent English. She gave us an excellent tour of the main attractions and explained history and culture. Junko also arranged a tea ceremony and booked a great restaurant for lunch. She also taught us how to navigate the subway! Altogether a fun first day in Tokyo with our excellent guide Junko.
