Hello, I'm Makiko. I am national certified tour guide.
Thank you for checking my page!

I was born in Tokyo and grown up in Fukushima, then return to Tokyo when I was 18.
After that, I lived Tokyo and suburban area over 30 years. Currently I am living in Chiba.

Chiba is next to Tokyo, where Narita International airport locates. There are many beautiful nature sites, historical sites and good local Japanese "Sake" breweries, unique local trains in this area.
But unfortunately, Chiba is not known to the tourists. If you are interested in visiting local area, take local single track railroad train just like native Japanese, I wold be very happy to help, or support you to experience our local life and culture.

My hobby is to learn about Japanese history, especially about the culture of Edo (Tokugawa Shogunate era), the lifestyle of ordinary citizens.
If you are interested in Japanese history, please contact me anytime. If you have any specific interests such as Japanese local castle, local historical museum etc., you can ask me to arrange "your" personal tour. Good museums are not only in Tokyo area, for example, National museum of Japanese History locates in Chiba area.

I always enjoy guiding every tourist with my best hospitality.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you, spending wonderful time with you.
See you soon!
