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.

“ Excellent ”

Junko is the best. Everything we asked of her - whether it was sightseeing or food-related, whether it was for the day of our tour or the days after - Junko went above and beyond by providing meticulous details. Thanks, Junko, for a memorable day in Tokyo.

“ Excellent tour of Kamakura! ”

Junko provided a spectacular tour of Kamakura, being careful ahead of time to clarify what exact places we wanted to visit. While she had a list of suggested places, she was very open to our ideas. For example, when we requested to have lunch a particular restaurant (highly recommended on Tripadvisor), Junko made reservations for us. She was very warm and likable, organized, and helpful with providing the historical details of Buddhism and Shintoism. Junko was very good with our 14 year old daughter, and said she enjoys children (we were not surprised!) - so if you have kids, she would be a great guide!! We recommend her highly.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a nice review. I am really glad to hear they enjoyed my tour! I also had a great time with them. Hope you and your family will come to see cherry blossoms. Thank you again. Junko

“ Great tour with Junko ”

We had a great day touring Tokyo with Junko. She was very knowledgeable and helpful and we covered a lot of sights that would have been difficult to find on our own. We had a very ambitious itinerary and she spent extra time with us so we were able to cover everything we wanted to. It was so helpful to have Junko show us how to navigate Tokyo on our first day!

Junko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review, Debra! I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed my tour. I am also glad we were able to go to Fukagawa Fudo. Hope to see you again in future. Thank you again and take care. Junko
