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.

“ A Very Short Stay In Tokyo ”

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!


Dear Dimiter, Thank you so much for your comment appreciating my tour! I wish we had had more time in Tokyo! It was really a hot day yet the weather was so fine. I was so glad that you are interested in Japan and listened to me so earnestly. I hope that you will visit Japan some day again! Thank you for your sincerity. Yukiko

“ guide to subway system in tokyo and tour of Meiji Shrine ”

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


Dear Louise, Thank you for the nice review! I replied to it soon, yet I seem to have answered to your another email. It is a great pleasure for me if my guiding was a little help to you, and I was so glad to guide beautiful noble ladies from Australia. I was wondering how you were spending in Tokyo after that because of the weather, yet I was glad that the day of your departure for Kyoto was so fine. As I have some photos to send you, I will be so glad if you contact me by email. Yukiko

“ Completion of our knowledges ”

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


Dear Peter, Thank you so much for the nice comment ! I was so impressed that you are so interested in Japan and asked me a lot of questions of every field. It was also a good study for me to see our country from the objective point of view comparing with other countries. The warm personality of you and your wife Alice made me happy through my guiding in Kamakura and answering the questions. Yukiko
