Japan

I have been working as a journalist for 37 years in Kyodo News Service, Japan’s most prestigious news agency. From 1989-1991, I was dispatched to Cyprus, Nicosia and working as a Middle East correspondent. I covered the Gulf War during the time. I worked at Kyodo’s New York bureau from 1994-97 covering the Wall Street and the United Nations. Although I am still working as a journalist here in Japan, I would love to have an opportunity to introduce my country to people from abroad as a tour guide. I will show you the best of Tokyo and other noted palce Including Kyoto.                                                                                                                                  

Tokyo Tour Guide - Grant A.

Japan

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. My tour fee is 20,000yen for 1-6hours (135.28USD) 30,000yen for 7-9hours (202.93USD) 40,000yen for 9-12hours (270.57USD) I have half-day tours listed at 20,000 yen (135.28USD) at the moment but you can combine them or do a custom tour for roughly up to 9 hours for 30,000 yen (202.93USD). The time transiting to and from your hotel for pick up or drop off within Tokyo 23wards does not count towards an increase in the price.                                                                                                                                 

Yokohama Tour Guide - Haruo T.

Japan

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.

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! I am Takako Takata. I was born in Kyoto and grew up in other several districts in Japan where I was attracted by each place's feature. I started the tour guiding in 2009 in which I introduce interesting and unique spots to tourists. I love to share the marvelous time and moment with people through tours. In Japanese, we have a wonderful phrase expressing such moment and we call it "Ichigo Ichie". It means we have to treasure every encounter, a once-in- a-lifetime-encounter that is , as it may not recur again. This word came from the spirit of tea ceremony. Anyway, let us enjoy extraordinary tours in Tokyo together, shall we ?

Tokyo tour

We had the best tour with Takako! She showed us to all the best places and gave us the history behind them all. Especially the shrines were very interesting and helpful with her guidance. She navigated us so well on the train system that was so confusing for us to do without her. Highly recommend Takako for a guided tour from a true local!

A great memory

Arisa was the perfect guide for us. She managed to take us everywhere we wanted from the Tokyo area sights, to dining spots, and shopping areas. Her English happens to be extraordinary and she is just as pleasant as a person could be. I believe we could not have made a better choice for a guide for us than Arisa.

Best way to see Tokyo before heading to the airport

Most would have gone directly to the airport and just sit around to wait for their flight. This service allowed us to see Tokyo without lugging our luggages around before heading to the airport. Our driver dropped us off, gave us a few minutes to one hour to enjoy the scenery, take pictures, and grab something to eat, while he stayed in the car with our luggages. He took us to many places and made sure we got to the airport in time for our flight. I highly recommended taking advantage of this service because it is definitely much better than sitting long hours at the airport.
