My name is Yukiko . I have a national license for a tour guide in English. I live in Tokyo on weekdays and go back to my house in Kamakura on weekend. I like both cities.
Tokyo is one of the most exciting cities in the world. Kamakura is a traditional city with history and nature. I like communicating with people.
My family and I had homestay students from all over the world and my children call me "mother of the world." I like learning foreign languages. I speak a little German and I learned a little Italian last year. I also have a license for teaching Japanese to foreigners as a second language. It would be a great pleasure for me to make your trip to Japan more valuable and impressive through my explanation of Japanese culture and history,
I am looking forward to seeing you.

I had only 48 hours in Tokyo and my stay would have been a lot different if I had not had a guide like Yukiko. She picked me up at the hotel and showed me the places I've requested. Due to my dietary restrictions she made a reservation at an excellent vegan restaurant for which I'm grateful. Thank you Yukiko for the great tour!
We were very happy with Yukiko and she did a great job teaching us how to use the subway system in Tokyo. We found it very helpful. Also took us to the Meiji Shrine and gave a history of the place, and took us to a lovely place for lunch. Thanks Yukiko ! Regards 6 happy Australians
Yukiko showed us a very nice garden and tempel in Kamakura, close to her hometown. We had the chance to get answers on all of our questions we collected over 3 weeks traveling in Japan. Very friendly and open minded person. Thanks Yukiko
