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.

We did a custom tour of Tokyo. I asked Junko to concentrate on cultural and historical aspects of japan and as such, we visited Tsukiji fish market, Asakusa, and akhibara. We had planned to go to ueno park but ran out of time. Junko was very nice and accommodating particularly as my daughter was ill on the day of our tour. Her English was a little hard to understand which I think hampered our learning of the historical aspects of Japan. She was, however, patient with our requests.
Thank you very much for a good review. I had a great time with you and your family. I appreciate your comment, which will be so helpful to improve my work in the future. Thank you again and take care. Junko
Junko is a friendly, well spoken tour guide. We were a group of 4. We booked Junko's 4 hour custom private tour but added an extra hour so that we could take our time. We are glad that we added the extra hour as it allowed us to have a longer lunch and explore at our own pace. Junko was highly responsive with communication before our tour via email. This made us immediately feel comfortable with our booking. She was thoughtful and flexible with planning, and very organized. Upon arrival she provided us with a maps, historical info and photos. She accommodated all members of our group despite varying ages, physical fitness and interest levels. Junko made the tour personal for each of us as she was able to speak to each member one-on-one about their specific interests. We booked Junk... read more
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Suinita! I am very glad that you enjoyed my tour. I also had a great time with all of you. Hope you will come back to Japan to see cherry blossoms. Thank you again and take care! Junko
Junko was a wonderful guide from the start. As soon as I booked our tour, I received a confirmation email with questions about what we would like to do and see and a prospective itinerary. We asked to change one place in the itinerary and she gave us several other ideas we could do instead. We made our tour the day after we arrived so she could familiarize us with the areas and I'm so glad we did! She showed us how to use the subway/train and while it was very easy, it was so nice to have her there with us the first time. We went all over the place and while we could have done it on our own, it would have taken A LOT longer and we wouldn't have had someone providing us with the local information that really made it interesting. I loved the tour of the fish market and all the differ... read more

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Colin and Mary! I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed my tour. I also had a great time with you. Hope that you would come to Japan again in future. Thank you again and Take care. Junko
Miss Junko is an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable on the history on the location we visited which gave us a better appreciation for those sites. Miss Junko is also very flexible with our schedule and made sure to update our schedule and show us different locations. We were able to see many different sites and try food that would had been missed if we tried ourselves. Thank you very much for a wonderful day Miss Junko and I will most certainly recommend your services to anyone!
