I’m so excited to have a chance to show you around my favorite spots in Kanagawa prefecture. I was born in Kanagawa. I spent my whole school life, including university, here in Kanagawa. I worked as a high school English teacher here for 40 years. I love Kanagawa so much. We have many interesting tourist spots, like Hakone, Kamakura, Enoshima and Yokohama. I got my tour guide license in English in 2009. I am still an English teacher. To give an interesting and impressive lesson to young high school students, I’ve learnt and gathered many kinds of information. I also have a license to teach social studies, so I have a wide range of knowledge about Japanese culture and history. I’m sure to provide you an interesting tour.

Chiba Tour Guide - Toru K.

Hello my guests, I'm Toru, a national licensed tour guide. I've been mainly guiding around Tokyo, Kamakura, Hakone, and Nikko for an individual or small group tourists . I'm living in a town near Narita International Airport. It's often said that one of the characteristics of the Japanese culture is sticking to details and yet tries to conceal its care. It means that there are a pile of unspoken stories behind what you see in Japan. I'm always trying to be an interpreter of those stories and help you enjoy the secrets of Japanese cultures. I'm offering four tour plans of Tokyo, Kamakura, Hakone, and Nikko. I think they are the best plans especially for the first timers to Japan because they're prepared to include all must-see spots in the area. If you are repeaters or interested in the other things or places, please don't hesitate to require what you want. Let's make the best plan for you together. I'm looking forward to seeing you in Japan.

Yokohama Tour Guide - Haruo T.

(10 reviews)

I live in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture. I have a license to teach in high schools and was admitted to the degree of Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language in the University of Birmingham. Until 2015 I had been teaching English at public high schools in Kanagawa for 37 years. During that time, I had some experience of guiding students from overseas through sister-school relationship around Tokyo and Kanagawa. Therefore, I had good command of English with the TOEIC score of 935. As for a tour guide experience I earned the certificate of National Government Licensed Guide-Interpreter in English and since then I have guided tourists to the popular sites around Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura and Yokosuka. My guiding focuses on introducing not only Japanese historical and cultural backgrounds but also giving tourists some tips to travel Japan only by themselves, such as how to use trains and subways, find good restaurants, reserve tickets, buy survenier, and speak basic Japanese. In addition, my tour includes opportunities to experience Japanese culture like Zen meditation, ninja performance, visiting anime's location sites based on tourists' request. Besides, by means of my hobbies of writing English Haiku and Waka (traditional Japanese poems) and performing Rakugo (traditional Japanese funny story telling) in English, I can surely entertain tourists during the tour. My moto as a tour guide is let the tourists have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Japan with my profound, intelligible and interestiog guiding.                                                                                                                                 

Tokyo Tour Guide - Kaori S.

(73 reviews)

Kon-ni-chi-wa. Hello! I'm Kaori, having lived in Tokyo for more than 20 years since I got married with a photographer who lives here. I'm originally from Shizuoka prefecture which has Mt.Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan. I took 2 working-holiday-visa stays in my younger days. One is in Toronto, Canada, and another is Australia touring by motorcycle. One year respectively. I love travel both international and domestic, especially by motorcycle. That's why I love helping individual travelers rather than normal package tours, cause I myself love travel freely. I love nature, gardens, trekking, greenery, cycling and motorcycle. I love to take you to the off-the-beaten tracks where I love in Tokyo. As a national government licensed guide, I've got deep knowledge of Japanese culture and history. I really enjoy talking about Japanese way of life with people from different cultures. But I'm so flexible that I don't bother if you're not so interested in. We see what you like and talk what you are interested in. That's my style. If you don't know what to want, I can help you with that. I'm outgoing, ( but organized pretty well!), very easy to get along with anybody, including small kids to teenagers. Can't wait to see you soon!

Based on my experience working for an international company, I try to respect and have a dialogue with people from various cultures.

Hi, I'm Mai. I have several years of experience as a volunteer guide and I've lived in Finland for half a year. Besides being a guide,I also study architecture as a hobby over the past several years. That’s why I registered on this platform to create an original tour featuring architecture and latest trends for local. Historical Japanese structures such as World Heritage is amazing, but Japan has many wonderful contemporary structures like shrines and museums, which is designed by various architects. I hope to show them with my tour. I was born in Hokkaido and it's been about 10 years since I moved to Tokyo area. I have always had a strong admiration for Tokyo, and have been exploring various attractive spots around the city. That's why I'll not only guide you to the main tourist spots ,but also arrange unique experience according to your preference :) ===== Traveling gives me a chance to get to know how other people live, their culture, and discovering new places . This is why I work as a guide, my goal is to give guests a real "local experience"--like what I've experienced on my travels so far. Don't worry if you are not good at English. Unfortunately, I can only speak Japanese and English, but I will do my best to make your tour as satisfying as possible using gestures and various other ideas. Hope to see you soon!

Travel in Faith

I wanted to take this opportunity and thank Mr.Yasuro for guiding our family of six. This is our First time to Japan and we do not speak any Japanese lol. He is our beacon to Japan. His kindness and sincerity is noticeable applaud. His knowledge and wisdom of Japan's historical mark is superb. He has accommodate us from the beginning of our booking and air flight arrival to the very end of our tour. We are grateful for his service. I highly recommend Mr.Yasuro. Thank you very much. We had an amazing time!

Jeff T.

Dear Jeff Trinh & Family., Thank you very much for your kind remarks on me. As none of us have ever experienced this rapidly changing world, it is not easy for youngsters to find right directions as they are growing up. But, as my observation, your children are alright, because you and your Mrs. are so gentle and thoughtful to them. Please take them to Japan again, though they may fail to get AAA. Thank you again. Best regards, Yasuro

Excellent Kamakura/Enoshima tour with Tomoko

We met as strangers but left as family! From our first contact to touring with Tomoko, she was accommodating, flexible, informative, and ready to answer our many questions. She put together a great itinerary with our special requests for our personalized tour. She was very attentive to our wants and needs. Upon arrival at our hotel, we were warmly welcomed and instantly became friends. Tomoko is an excellent English speaking tour guide who taught us about the culture and history of Kamakura/Enoshima. She is warm, friendly, patient, engaging, and well-organized. We accomplished a lot in our one-day walking tour going to 2 temples and 1 shrine in Kamakura and 1 shrine on Enoshima Island. She recommended the perfect places to shop for omiyage/snacks. Lunch on Enoshima Island was AMAZING! Due to the hot humid weather and crowds during hydrangea season, she adjusted our itinerary to make it a more enjoyable day. Tomoko is also a great photographer/videographer and knows the best spots to take wonderful pictures/videos. At the end of our day, she recommended returning back on the train in the green car-reserved seats. It was a great suggestion! Even though we did not want the day to end, it was nice to relax and take a nap in comfort after a fabulous day of sightseeing. We highly recommend booking a tour with Tomoko! Tomoko-Thank you again! You’re a remarkable tour guide. You’ve become a cherished friend and part of our ohana (family) during our travels. The laughter, shared stories, and the sense of adventure you infused into our private tour created bonds that will linger in our memories for a lifetime. Your dedication to your craft and the genuine connections we made during this unforgettable adventure made it an exceptional tour. We feel so very fortunate to have met you, and we look forward to crossing paths again in the near future in Japan & in Hawaii. Aloha ‘Oe (Farewell) A Hui Hou Kakou- (Until we meet again)! Tisha, Keith, Robyn, Milton

Tisha T.

Wow! Thank you so much, Tisha, for taking your time to write such a grand descriptive review for me. I was very motivated because you did a lot of research beforehand about my hometown, Kamakura, and each of you made individual requests. It was a very satisfying day for me, too, especially because at the end we were able to complete our dragon mission on Enoshima! We had to walk to Sasuke Inari in a sweat because we couldn't catch a cab, we were surrounded by groups of students here and there, and there were times when what was supposed to be a foodie tour almost became a fasting tour, but that made the late lunch at Enoshima even more delicious! Mahalo for the wonderful souvenirs and lots of smiles from Hawaii. I am also very much looking forward to seeing you all again, Tisha, Keith, Robyn, and Milton. またね、Matane! (See you soon!) - Tomoko

Excursion to Kamakura from Tokyo

8 hours

Kamakura Day Trip

We recently had the pleasure of joining a day trip to Kamakura, guided by the wonderful Yuka. From start to finish, the experience was nothing short of exceptional. Yuka's knowledge, enthusiasm, and genuine passion for Kamakura's rich history and culture made this tour one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. Yuka was incredibly well-organized and punctual. She communicated all the necessary details before the trip, ensuring everyone knew the meeting point, schedule, and what to expect. Her meticulous planning allowed us to make the most of our day without feeling rushed. I recommend Yuka highly enough for a day trip to Kamakura. Her expertise, warmth, and dedication to providing an unforgettable experience made this tour truly special. If you're looking for an enriching and enjoyable way to explore Kamakura, Yuka is the perfect guide. Thank you, Yuka, for an incredible day!!!

Rachel L.

Thank you very much for your wonderful comments about Kamakura tour. I'm happy to hear you really enjoyed the day. I hope you'll have good memories about temples with flower gardens, bamboo garden and maccha.
