Hello :) I am Macco, a licensed tour guide. I love eating and traveling, so I call myself "EATraveler". I'd like you to experience "tasty (oishi)" Japan, so my tour will be full of nice food. I was born and grew up in Osaka, and now I live in a small fishing town called Manazuru (near Hakone area) after living in Tokyo for more than 10 years. I fell in love with a beautiful scenary of the sea and mounains of Manazuru, and I really enjoy a relaxing life here. So I'd like to show you around this cozy town, which will make you feel nostargic and relaxed. I also work as an editor & writer. My recent works are mainly books about food and drinks, such as fermented food, dried food, cocktails and bars, Japanese sake, coffee, cheese, tea, as well as agriculture and food issues. Based on this background, I'd like to offer you amazing food experiences in Japan and enjoy EATraveling together :) Looking forward to seeing you in Manazuru!

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.

Tokyo Tour Guide - Keiko T.

Keiko T.


Hello. I am Keiko, a nationally licensed tour guide for English-speaking tourists. I love traveling to new places, experiencing different cultures, and meeting new people. When I was young, I embarked on a long journey to explore more about my life. I settled in a small town in Illinois, USA, enjoying a new life while studying at the state university, and then moved to Florida to work for a while. After coming back to Japan, I have been working in downtown Tokyo since 2008, mainly as a translator and sometimes as an interpreter in various fields, including central government offices, TV stations, and a university. Seeing the increased opportunities around the Tokyo Olympics 2020, I transitioned into the tourism industry and am currently working as a tour guide, basically giving day tours of downtown Tokyo, Fuji & Hakone, Kamakura and Nikko. I love meeting people from different backgrounds, talking with them, and learning new things. That's why I enjoy hosting guests from abroad who want to explore Japan. Many local people helped me during my journey, and now it's time for me to give back. Come and meet me here; I will show you around amazing places in Japan.                                                                                                                                 

Kanagawa Tour Guide - Ryoko E.

Ryoko E.


Hi, I am Ryoko, a Oyama Area Licensed Guide Interpreter. Oyama is located in western place in Kanagawa and known as a sacred tourist spot for Edo commoners. Based on my experience working for an international company, I try to respect and have a dialogue with people from various cultures. I offer ideas for visiting spots together, eating, learning, and experiencing Japanese life in Isehara, as well as in the surrounding Kanagawa, and Tokyo area, which are difficult for foreign tourists to enter alone. Also, since I love books so much that I run a reading community in Isehara, we can consider plans that tie in with literature and legends. •Japanese History •Religions(Majored in Islamic culture at university) •Love to find good restaurants &cafe •literature

Easy day trip from Tokyo and Yokohama area. If love hiking, it is must-try tour. The name "Takatori-yama" means "Hawk caught mountain" and dates to the Edo period (17th to 19th centuries).

Yasuro Lovely Gentleman

We reached out to Yasuro through get your guide with a personalised Itinery request. We wanted our first day transitting through the busy Tokyo train stations to be hassle free and Yasuro was a perfect fit for us. His polite and pleasant manner and calmness made our first day ever in Japan ….. EASY… which is what we wanted. Yasuros English is excellent and he was willing to help with every request. He also left us with some very handy tips to use for our next leg of our journey. We highly recommend Yasuro. The Kawades Australia

Peta K.

Dear The Kawades, Thank you very much for your kind remarks on me. It is me who should appreciate your kindness and friendliness extended to me during our short journey. I really admire that you are so brave that you could successfully drove to the hotel in Gora thru meandering roads in Hakone mountains. As the weather report is saying, it may be getting hotter, so take care of your beloved daughter and have many good memories of Japan. Arigatou 河出(Kawade)san. Best regards, Yasuro

Somen Lunch in Manazuru

2 hours


Feel like a local villager in Manazuru

I really enjoyed the local food and markets of Manazuru. The dried fish, in particular, was very flavorful. My only regret is that I could not bring home some tofu due to the high temperature. I would like to come back again! It was impressive that Macco was greeted by almost everyone in Manazuru. By walking with her, I felt myself being accepted by the people of Manazuru. Thank you Macco!

Matsumoto K.

Matsumoto san, thank you so much for your comment. I'm happy that you enjoyed Manazuru and local cuisine. Next time, I'll bring you to the tofu place where you can have lunch with fresh tofu. Looking forward to seeing you again sometime soon. Thank you. Macco

Wonderful holiday experience at heartful Manazuru!

Thanks to the excellent guidance of the town/market by Macco, we could enjoy encounters with the residents and the delicious local food at the lovely market. Manazuru is a special place with its beautiful scenery of the ocean and the hills, and you can feel the residents' pride and passion to reserve the attraction of the town. No wonder why people want to move from cities like Tokyo and Yokohama to Manazuru, to get a different and happier life there! The memory of the happy faces gave me much energy to deal with everyday life back in the city. Thank you so much for the great holiday experience!

Sayumi T.

Sayumi san, thank you for your warm words :) I'm really happy that you had a great time in Manazuru. I also enjoyed the market with you two. Hope you'll visit the town again sometime soon. Macco
