Kanagawa Tour Guide - Macco K.

4.80 / 5
(5 reviews)

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.

Chiba Tour Guide - Toru K.

4.91 / 5
(22 reviews)

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.                                                                                                                                  

Tokyo Tour Guide - Masumi N.

5.00 / 5
(6 reviews)

Hello! I am Masumi, thanks for checking out my profile! I have spent the past 11 years in Tokyo, but prior to Tokyo, I spent 10 years in Dubai. I have also lived in the UK for a couple of years and studied in the US for a year. I worked as a cabin crew during my years in Dubai. The international and multi cultural environment made me who I am today, an international person. I was fascinated and intrigued by the counties I visited and its people. As my job took me to countless countries, enabling me to see the world, I found that a tour guide could determine one’s impression of the country, making the trip more memorable. I cherish the great tours I went on to this day! Also, having lived abroad for 10 years, I was surprised at the level of interest there is in Japan and how many had the desire to visit one day. After returning to Japan, I soon got a taste of how difficult it could be to get around, even for a Japanese person! Visiting Japan I imagine can be daunting, not just the language barrier, but the ability to get from one place to another in an efficient way. This led me to get started as a tour guide, assisting visitors with the best possible experience in Japan. Tokyo is an attractive city where traditional and modern Japan coexist. You can either arrange your own itinerary, or let me help you discover Japan according to your preference. Leave it to me, we can deep dive into anything from must see landmarks to delicious cuisines to discovering how the locals live. Let me help you make your experience in Japan memorable! Look forward to seeing you soon!

My name is Grant I lived more than 10 years in Japan. I graduated University and translation school in Tokyo. I am fluent in Japanese. I have a degree in Asian studies and have expert-level knowledge of Japanese culture and history. I have memorized the JR rail system across all of Japan, I use the same train timetable calculators as the station staff, and I have experience using bullet train passes that are exclusive to foreign visitors. I can optimally navigate the Tokyo underground and maximize value from a Tokyo metro pass and also understand Tokyo above ground which will allow for seamless transitions between different metro stations and landmarks with minimal backtracking. *There will be a price revision at the end of June* My tour fee is Half-Day Tour: 20,000yen for 1-5hours Full-Day Tour: 40,000yen for 5-10hours The time transiting to and from your hotel for pick up or drop off within Tokyo 23wards does not count towards the time. I am also able to guide historical sites and cities such as Kyoto, Kanazawa, Nikko, and Kamakura on request if you pay my rail fare.

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.

Tokyo Tour Guide - Francisco V.

English : Hi! I'm Fran, a passionate traveler. After visiting more than 30 countries in my life, I wanted to share my passion about traveling and the knowledge I got from my experience, and that's why I became a travel content creator for social media… Even when I enjoy sharing traveling content for a lot of people online I still wanted to share it in a more personal way so, since I moved to Tokyo a long time ago, I started giving tours in English and in Spanish, so i have experience giving a lot of tours . With all the tour groups we had an amazing time, so I'm looking forward to preparing a personalized itinerary for you and take you around Tokyo, the city which made me fall in love with (and that's why I settled here despite keep traveling!), I want to show you how people REALLY live here and not only the ''tourist traps'', how their culture works, talk about history, religion, traditions and show you some of my favorites spots in the city. I can always share with you information or some advice is you want to know about other countries, which I already visited, if it's about traveling, I'm always open to help and share my experience. After my personal experience as a tourist in other countries I found tour guides usually take this as a job so they lost their excitement, and they show us around just like part of their routine so, in my case, I try to be like I wish other tour guides were with me while I was traveling: a person who loves traveling, who loves his city and who have a lot of knowledge and tips to share ! Anything you need, feel free to send me a message!

A One-Day Tokyo Tour

8 hours


We knew right from the moment we met Masumi that our first full day in Tokyo would be nothing short of amazing! She had a very warm, inviting and bubbly personality which we absolutely loved! We were a large group and we were with her for a full 8 hours and she ended the tour with the same level energy as when she started. She took us to many amazing sights around Tokyo and even kept in touch and offered to help us throughout our 12 day stay around different areas of Japan. We had two other guides in different areas after Masumi and our entire group wish we could have taken Masumi instead she was that amazing! It was like we became immediate friends and she absolutely looked out for every single one of us making sure we were all okay throughout the day. Please book her she is by far the best tour guide in Tokyo!

Dan the man! Awesome tour guide!

Dan was an incredible guide! He was everything we needed and wanted for our tour. We were 2 Aussie families travelling together… 4 adults and 3 children. Dan was put on this planet to teach. He is a wealth of knowledge and his interactions with the children and keeping them entertained throughout the tour was above and beyond. Dans the best communicator I’ve dealt with in a long time. His pre-trip communication and preparation was second to none. He really put so much extra effort and energy into making us feel welcome and introducing us to as many Japanese things as possible from food to experiences. He made sure the itinerary was right for us. Dan is a typical Australian at heart, open, friendly and I’ll give it to him…. Funny too! Thank-you so much for a wonderful day Dan! We will be seeing you again sometime in the future. Book Dan if you want an easy going tour guide with excellent Japanese and English… you will not regret it. Also if you have children in your tour BOOK DAN!!!!

Yuki was the best guide for our trip to Kyoto

I can’t say enough about Yuki! He was so organized from the beginning conversation to the end of the tour. He was knowledgeable and kept us on schedule. He showed us his Miyabi Tour of Kyoto that we chose. His I knowledge on the history, customs and Japanese culture was outstanding. You cant make a better decision than to hire Yuki for your tour. We loved Yuki and we are so happy we met him and were able to spend the day with him.
