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.

No. Your tour is private, only for you and your family or friends, there will be no other group of tourists together in your tour.

Yes, you can and you may be able to get a discount if you are traveling alone. Price depends on which guide you choose.
Junko was very informative and adaptive. My three days with her were not your typical see the Sights. Being a foodie , led to some off the beaten path not usually requested places. Combine that with the "normal" tour activities it was a very enjoyable time. She is extremely organized and able to help with translations and directions. I would recommend her without hesitation. Especially for customization.
Junko was great. I recommend her as a private guide in Tokyo
Junko was very helpful in getting us familiar with the transit system & gave a good tour of Tokyo areas that were on our list to see.
Junko gave us a terrific insight into Japan and Tokyo. Always helpful and eager to please, Junko made our first day in Japan memorable. The tour was customized to meet our needs and we knew we were in good hands from our first contact. Well done and highly recommended.
We had a brilliant day with Junko, she asked what we are interest in before hand and plan an amazing day for us doing everything we wanted and more. She spent lots of time with us and helped out with train tickets and other helpful tips for the rest of our stay. Would absolutely recommend her as a tour guide.
