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 incredibly accommodating on a hot and blistering day in Tokyo. She showed us around the Tsukiji Fish market, Sensoji Temple and Tokyo Skytree. We even had the chance to experience a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. We had our 10 year old son with us and she made sure that none of our walking activities were too strenuous for him. We had never been to Japan before and made the most of our day thanks to Junko and her very knowledgeable tour. We became familiar with the Tokyo mass transit system and were able to travel around thanks to her advice. I would very much recommend her for anyone wishing to explore the Japanese capital for the first time.
Highly recommend Junko as a tour guide. Very knowledgeable, caring and well prepared guide. Had an amazing tour at fish market where we loved the different samples to taste. Had our 8yo grandson with us who she also looked out for in the crowds and always had our needs in mind. Due to the heat had to cut our tour short which upset us but Junko was very caring making sure I was ok doing all she could to make me comfortable. Thank you for the part of the tour we got to do with you, and will use you again on our next visit to amazing Tokyo.
Junko was a lovely tour guide and we greatly appreciated her willlingness to adapt our tour based on the interests and energy levels of our children (ages 10 and 12 yrs old). We also appreciate how well organized she was and it was very nice of her to provide us with add'l materials to help us get around Tokyo and look up things of interest for the rest of our trip.
Junko was very attentive to us. We really enjoyed the tour. We did the east Tokyo tour, and everything she showed us was of interest. We would recommend her.
Junko was prompt and friendly and easy to talk to. We really enjoyed the tour with her. We did get a little lost trying to find the hedgehog/rabbit/chinchilla/otter cafe in harajuku but the grandkids sure had fun. Thank you Junko for your kind interaction with the youngsters.
