Kanagawa Tour Guide - Macco K.

(5 reviews)
Japan

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.

Japan

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.

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.

Akihabara Maid Cafe Lunch Tour

Tokyo
2 hours 40 min

The Perfect Tour Guide

Melody met me at my hotel (a real bonus!) and we immediately clicked. We had easy and stimulating conversation about history, culture and social norms while we explored Akihabara and that sub-culture. It was my first time in that area, and to a Maid Cafe. (My advice is to just roll with it and have fun!) Melody is very knowledgeable about the area, and was able to tailor the tour to my mood and needs. It's the little things that make a great tour, even if unplanned, like finding the perfect ginger ale near a shrine. Melody was flexible and open-minded. I highly recommend this tour, even if you're not quite 'Otaku'. :)

A Fun Filled Day in Tokyo With The BEST Guide Ever

I wish I was a better writer so I could do justice to just how wonderful Ayaka is, but I will do my best. We chose her because we really wanted our teenage daughters to get to spend a day like a typical Tokyo teenager. Ayaka customized the perfect day for us after I made my requests and it really was the best day ever. We just got back to the hotel from the “tour” and I wanted to write this review right away to express my appreciation. She took us shopping to so many cool stores we would not have been able to find on our own. The Wagyu beef bbq restaurant she recommended for lunch was absolutely perfect. She taught us all how to operate and play the taeko drum machines, claw machines, and Photo Booth at the arcade. We accidentally booked the wrong location for the Mipig cafe, and she was able to call and fix our mistake and make sure we still got to see the pigs. She is the world’s best karaoke partner. She even helped make appointments for other things that we needed later in the week. Of note- we have traveled all over the world and in our most exotic places we put ourselves in the hands of local guides. We always choose ones who advertise as fluent in English- and we have learned that depending on the country and the guide we selected, the actual fluency of the guide can vary. Ayaka was a Communications major at a university in California- her English is flawless. We absolutely adored her, and we hope from the bottom of our hearts that if she ever comes to our hometown of New Orleans that she will let us take her out for as perfect a day as she arranged for us. We will be returning home to Japan and we absolutely intend to make sure to book her for our entire trip.
