Hello!! I'm Noriko. Please call me Noriko.
I like travelling abroad very much, so I went to Australia to study English after college. I worked for a foreign company after coming back to Japan.
I often visited some overseas countries with my husband and my children.
Then I found the guide of each countries were very friendly and professional. They know their countries a lot. I would like to help you have the best experience in Japan like them.
Now I live in Fukushima which is in Tohoku region located in northern part of Tokyo. You can enjoy rice plantings, green bright leaves, a lot of flowers like cherry blossoms in spring, nice beaches, fireworks, festivals in summer, autumn leaves, some fruits in fall and snowing, swans and sake in winter.
I also would like to introduce my home town Saitama prefecture which is located in next door to Tokyo.
We have Bonsai city and a famous shrine here. I can guide you Ibaraki prefecture which is next door to Fukushima.
I can make flexible tour which you would like to make with you. Please feel free to ask me if you have questions about tour.
I hope you will have a lot of amazing experiences in Japan.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon.

We had 2 outstanding days with Norika. She is charming. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She planned our itinerary well. I have some mobility issues and she worked out how best to do things. We requested we use taxis (our cost obviously) rather than the underground. She has lots of Information, enjoys her work, and interacts positively with her clients A highlight was to see a traditional Shinto wedding at one of the major shrines. And a couple, brought their one month baby for blessings. The mother was beautifully dressed in a kimono. Noriko quickly adapted our schedule to allow us more time there She took us to local places to eat which was great
Noriko was very kind in coming all the way from her home town out of Tokyo to meet us at the Lobby of our hotel. She guided us by train and subway to Shibuya, Shinjuku and Harajuku. We got the chance to go around to the popular places for shopping in Tokyo. We had a very interesting lunch in Shinjuku something we had not tried before and it was super delicious! Thank you Noriko for your recommendation! All family members got to see busy shopping areas and also buy cute, unique gifts and items. We had a lovely day, it was very worthwhile and Noriko you are the kindest, funny and sweet and helpful person we have met, can’t thank you enough for your time to come with us on our shopping tour! We would definitely recommend you to others as a guide! Kindest regards Haylie & Family f... read more
Noriko really made me and my family feel at home with her. She was very helpful with the children always. Stayed much longer, went out of her way and even made serveral restaurant reservations for the following days when she would not be with us. You are great. Thank you.
Thank you for your heartwarming message. I had a fantastic time with you and your family. I really enjoyed talking with you in a restaurant. I'm glad you could try Ramen noodles at Tokyo Station and enjoyed it finally. Your wife, two sons and a daughter are so lovely. I was so happy to be with you and your family. I hope you'll come back to Japan and see you again one day. Thank you!!!
