Kanagawa Tour Guide - Macco K.

(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.

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 - Grant A.

5.00 / 5
(20 reviews)

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.

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!

Deep knowledge

Grant is very knowledgeable of his tour materials and very friendly and kind. He speaks a bit softly, and if you use his services in large groups, you may need to take charge of not losing anyone as he walks fast.

Personalized Tokyo Journey

7 hours

Had 2 great days in Tokyo with Akira

Akira was a kind and wonderful guide who showed us the highlights of Tokyo. He was on time, sensitive to our interests and knowledgeable about history and all the sites. Not only did he personalize our days and show us many places, but also, he gave us a real feel for Japanese culture and traditions. We visited during high temperatures and he was great at managing our day so that we weren’t outside too much while still hitting all the “must sees”. We would love to come back to visit Japan and would definitely ask Akira to guide us again.

Nahum F.

Dear Nahum, Thank you so much for the great review. And thank you so much for the opportunity for me to think more about my country, its culture, my people, and what I am. It was fun and interesting experience for me to answer your questions. I enjoyed each moment that I realize there are something similar between your culture that your people maintained for hundreds of years, and that of Japan. It was my pleasure to guide generous, jolly, curious, and thoughtful people like you and beautiful Rina. I hope you enjoy the rest of the days in Japan, and I am looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city together. Sincerely, Akira
