About

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.

“ Exceptional walking tour with Junko ”

Walking with Junko was such a rewarding experience. In our walking tour she introduced us to the Tokyo metro system, pointed out local shops, info centres, future sites to see and took us to hidden gems at Nezu, Yanaka and Asakusa. We really appreciated the effort Junko put in - she was very prepared, generous with her time and friendly. Thankyou so much for such a fabulous introduction on our first day in Tokyo.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a great review. I am very happy to have introduced you to various things about Tokyo. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your staying in Japan to make unforgettable experiences. Thank you again and take care. Junko

“ A wonderful tour guide ”

Junko was our tour guide on our first day in Tokyo. She was wonderful! Exactly on time, very accommodating (the weather was bad today and we had to make some quick itinerary changes). She was extremely knowledgeable about the city, its history, how best to navigate and travel, among countless other things. We had a great time with her and would happily request her services on future trips to the city.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Alan. I am very happy to have helped you know Tokyo, its culture and history. I also had a great time with you. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your staying in Tokyo. Thank you again, Junko.

“ Very accommodating guide ”

Our family of 4 met Junko to guide us on a one day tour of Tokyo. She arrived on time and was prepared with handouts, maps etc. we had emailed back and forth before our trip discussing the itinerary. Junko replied promptly and happily revised as needed. We would not have been able to see as many sites on our own, she also taught us how to navigate the subway system which can be intimidating for a first timer who does not speak Japanese. Her English is good, we were able to understand most everything. Junko also took us to a traditional Japanese restaurant for lunch. It was affordable and one of the best meals we had. I would use her again if we are lucky enough to return to Tokyo.

Junko:

Thank you for a wonderful review, Ingrid. I am very glad to have helped you and your family know Tokyo. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thanks again. Junko

“ Expectations................Delivered!!! ”

As a construction project management professional, I know the best service providers book quickly. Accordingly, we began the tour booking process months in advance. I was and remain thoroughly impressed with the timeliness, completeness, and accuracy of each and every email touching on every aspect (itinerary, logistics, meals, payment, etc.) of the tour between Junko myself. With such professionalism, I knew why others had such high regard for Junko. I knew I had selected the right private tour guide. With everything scheduled and agreed upon months in advance, all we had to do was wait for the events we scheduled to occur. And, they did occur - just like clockwork! Throughout our two-day tour, everything we saw and experienced with Junko was very good. Thank you Junko for c... read more
