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. *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.

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.                                                                                                                                 

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.

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!

Our perfect guide for our fist day in tokyo

We were so lucky to have Tomoko introduce our family to Tokyo. She met us at our rental apartment and showed us how to navigate the train system and took us the various destinations around Tokyo. She shared her knowledge of each area and made sure we took pictures to memorialize our adventures.

Naomi F.

Thank you for your prompt review with positive comments, Naomi. I really enjoyed sharing time with you, three-generation family. I was surprised to see your mother walking smiling and not showing any fatigue despite the heat and jet lag. Also, I enjoyed chatting with her in Japanese. Sincerely hoping you all will have a great time during your further stay in Japan. - Tomoko

Amazing - The Best Tour Guide !

If you’re like me you’ve read countless reviews before you booked a tour guide reading how their tour guide was the best. Add this review to the list … Atsuko was nothing less than amazing. It felt more like two friends spending an afternoon together finished by lunch. When she would point something out I remembered it was a tour :). We had lots of laughs while she blended our time between strolling and providing content regarding the neighborhood, shrine, temple etc. Atsuko has unlimited knowledge of the area and even talked a little about her own family and life even showing me some instagram photos. I’ve toured alone and thought I knew what I was doing but a guided tour with Atsuko was money well spent! If you looking for casual, comfortable and encyclopedic knowledge … you’re in the right place. Without a doubt … my tour guide is better than anyone else’s … Atsuko!

Matthew K.

Thank you for taking time to write me such a fantastic review Matthew! It's too much for me l really appreciate your kind words. I was so glad to share a pleasant time with you. Thank you for taking me as your guide in Tokyo. Please take care and hope to see you someday.
