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!

Chiba Tour Guide - Kozo Y.

Hello! I'm Kozo. I'm currently living in Chiba, which is one of the biggest cities in Japan and located in the suburbs of Tokyo. So, I can guide you to the sightseeing spots in Tokyo and the suburbs, which include Asakusa, Nikko, Kamakura, Hakone, Mt. Fuji, and more. In those places, you can experience traditional Japanese culture and beautiful sceneries. I'm originally from Kobe, one of the major cities in the western part of Japan. So, if my schedule permits, I may also guide you to the attractive spots in Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe. I took a Master's degree in chemical engineering at the University of Tokyo and an MBA degree at the University of Massachusetts. I am a professional engineer in industrial engineering, an industrial safety consultant, a registered management consultant, and a licensed guide-interpreter. I have been working for a Japanese chemical company for many years. So, if you are interested not only in Japanese culture but also in technologies and businesses in Japan, I may be a good company. :) As a part of my job as an engineer, I often travel outside Japan. The countries that I visited last year are Singapore, China, the United States, Mexico, Germany, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia. Among them, Singapore is my frequent destination. Also, in the past, I visited Spain, Italy, England, France, Hungary, India, Canada, Korea, Taiwan, etc. So, if you are from one of those countries, you may ask me how I felt when I visited your motherland. :) Okay, thank you for reading my self-introduction to the end. I hope I have a chance with you!

Exciting Nikko - One Day Tour from Tokyo

10 hours

Excellent experience!

Hideaki did an amazing job showing us Nikko. He was professional, timely and extremely knowledgeable about the history of area. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to experience the charm of Nikko and the wonderful history and beauty of the area.

Walter D.

Walter-san, Thank you very much for your review. I'm very glad to know you enjoyed the tour, even though it started raining suddenly. Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama

Full Day Tour to Nikko

Kahoko planned our Nikko day perfectly. She booked taxis and Nikko transportation for us and communicated our itinerary well in advance. She is so pleasant to be around and knows much about area. Our day started with a taxi ride to Tokyo Station followed by two Shinkansen trains and then a private driver around Nikko. This would have been difficult to plan myself. Kahako will do all the logistics for you and meet you at your hotel for pickup. Once we got to Nikko we took some scenic pictures and then headed to lunch at a quaint western cuisine restaurant. Then onto two waterfalls an amazing Shinto shrine and Buddhist Temple. On our return she rode back with us making sure we knew when to get off and on our trains. She offers a great tour with a friendly smile. I definitely recommend using her while visiting the Tokyo area.

Gena J.

Thank you very much for the kindest and amazingly prompt reply ! It's a record-making ! It was such a lovely day with a wonderful family from Tennessee--- first time for me. I became a big fan of Tennessee because of you. As a wife and husband, or a doctor and nurse, you are making a perfect couple. I am so impressed that you are sweet and caring each other even after almost 25 years together. After seeing you, I feel like being nicer to my own husband. Probably, he will appreciate you. Anyway, I hope you will have a marvelous time in Osaka and Kyoto. Also, please say hello to Nara's deer. They are waiting for you ! Thank you again, and take care!
