Hello!! I'm Akiko. I'm a National certified tour guide in English.
I have lived in Tokyo for more than 10 years with my husband and son(12 year old).
I'm interested in the culture of Edo(old Tokyo from 1603 to 1867), and I like Ukiyoe(Woodblock print).

I like to talk with people. I'm excited that I can talk with guests from foreign countries and learn many different cultures.
Tokyo has many different faces in each area. And we can find that both new and old(traditional) things are coexisting in Tokyo.
It is my pleasure that I can share 'Japan' which is a country of history, modern, beautiful nature, clean, and heart-warming people.

Also, during staying in Japan, I hope that guests from abroad to know Japanese people's ordinary lifestyle like you can imagine you are living in Japan.

I hope that we can share wonderful time and have happy conversations.
See you soon!
