Born and bred in Tokyo I am still living in the suburbs of Tokyo. I spent several years in the U.S. and the UK and wanted to show international visitors around Japan in return for the hospitality I had received in foreign countries. After coming back from the UK, I obtained the qualification of the National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter. I can guide guests to every corner of Tokyo including areas off the beaten track. As a history fan I can tell you a historical episode behind the scenes. From a local perspective I can explain how we Japanese are getting along. Since I have science and technology backgrounds, I can give you a tour of scientific or technical things as well..

Japan

Hi, everybody, It’s my great pleasure to take you to fantastic places and explain the interesting aspects of Japan. I love this job! The scope of my work primarily covers Tokyo and its suburbs, and I offer both one-day and multi-day tours. I can also guide you to destinations outside Tokyo, such as Kyoto, Nara, or Himeji Castle. In such cases, you will need to cover my transportation, accommodation, and meals in addition to the guide fee. We use a taxi or a private car on my urban tours to maximize efficiency. If you prefer to use a private car, please arrange it in advance. Japanese taxis are clean, driven by professional drivers, and generally more affordable than a private car. In 2018, I was ranked number one in popularity on this matching site, GoWithGuide, due to earning five-star reviews from many tourists. It is because of my cheerful personality, humorous conversations, and extensive knowledge across various fields. This expertise is grounded in my diverse professional background: Magazine reporter. An executive aide to the CEO of an international advertising agency. Manager of public relations and advertising for a multinational company. Over forty years of work experience in Tokyo. Additionally, I sometimes appear as an actor in TV dramas and have published fourteen e-books available on Amazon, including four in English. I have suggested some ready-made travel packages, but I prefer to propose a suitable travel plan for you after discussing your preferences. Please, do not hesitate to let me know what you would like. I’m looking forward to meeting you very soon in Japan. P.S. I had prostate cancer and after two years of treatment, my strength has almost returned to what it was before I had the disease, so I have decided to resume guiding tourists from July 1, 2024. Thank you, Masato

Hi, I'm Yoko, a National License Tour Guide&International Kikisake-shi. I speak with an American accent, 'cause I lived in Seattle, Washington for six years in my childhood(3-9 years old). My tours might be better with people who LOVE TO WALK, have STAMINA and keen to learn about the culture. Now I live within a walking distance from Ueno Park, Tokyo, so I see a lot of International tourists walking around in my neighborhood every day. (PLEASE CHECK EACH TOUR. The expenses are spelled out, too.) "Tokyo is larger than we thought and the transportations are so complicated," Swedish guys told me. I'm here to help you. I know well about Tokyo, Yokohama, Yamanashi etc. and I travel most of the parts of Japan. I would appreciate if you could see more sightseeing spots with me as your guide and enjoy your stay. I love to answer your questions, even though I became nearly breathless when I was with American guests, a family of three, curiously asking me questions after questions:-) I appreciated their interest in Japan very much. I also go mountain trekking for nearly thirty years. I've been to the summit of Mt. Fuji and Mt. Kitadake three times. Talking about Mt. Takao, maybe more than fifty times. I hope we can enjoy the beautiful view together. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon and having a good time together. Hope to hearing from you soon.

I have been in Tokyo(downtown side) since I was born. For three years I have traveled in 57 countries and worked in Bolivia for a year. When I traveled in Maya's ruin, I was really impressed that my guide told me not only the information about the ruin but also how to live in Guatemala, how to earn and the political problem etc... A guide is a diplomatic entrance to the country, I think. From this experience, I would like to give you what I have to every customer. Having been worked as an elementary school teacher in Japan, though I know the educational issue as a strong point, now I work as a tour-conductor traveling around Tokyo area. I used to hike around the world, of course in Japan. Northern Japan Alpes, Southern Japan Alpes, Yatsugatake mountain range and Mt.Fuji. The highest one for me is Mount Cotopaxi in Ecuador with 5892m. Another strong point is that I can hike with you. Let us make unforgettable and precious moment during the tour! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tengo experiencia que he trabajado en Bolivia como un maestro de primaria. Hablo español y tengo Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera Nevel B1. Cuando viajé unos países en Latinoamérica, me impresionó su amabilidad de la gente local. Muchas veces estaba en apuros pero siempre los desconocidos me ayudaron. Además una guía profesional en una ruina de Guatemala me daban las informaciones no solo de la ruina también de la vida cotidiana. La experiencia me conduce a lo que querría hacer ahora. ¡Ojalá sea yo un guía quién les doy información que los clientes quieren! Ahora vivo en Tokio como un acompañante de autobus quién trabajo en los alrededores de Tokio. Cada día les llevo los clientes japoneses a los lugares turisticos a lo largo de la lista de recorrido. Monte Fuji, el mercado de pescado de Toyosu, Kamakura etc... Como un guía turistico, podría hacer un recorrido ajustando a su desea. También tengo experiencias del senderismo en Japón y en algunos países. El Cotopaxi de Ecuador es una montaña mas alta para mí con 5897m de la altura. Cada vez que tengo una vacación, suelo subir las montañas bajas y altas de Japón. ¡Hagamos una experiencia maravillosa durante este recorrido!

Hi! I’m Yoshi. I’m a pure, but a little bit an international, Japanese, living in Yokohama for about half a century. In addition, I used to live in Malaysia for 2 years, U.S.A. for 8 years and Canada for 3 years. I had long been involved in the international trade of U.S., Canadian, Australian and European grains for 40 years, during which I visited more than 40 countries including most of East Asian and South East Asian countries and most of Western European countries. Now I’m a national certified guide-interpreter, working here for the past couple of years. Believe! There is much more vast range of tourist spots and attractions throughout the year in Japan, even in Tokyo and its neighboring area, than “Green Michelin” and “Lonely Planet” offer to the world. Oops! You will surely encounter a new electricity here and there, day and night! It’s really great to be welcoming here those who; - Like to visit famous historic and cultural sites, shrines and temples in Tokyo, Kamakura, Nikko and other local areas, - Love to bask in the natural beauty of Hakone, Mount Fuji and their vicinity, - Have a keen interest in time-honored, culture-rich local cities like Kanazawa, Takayama, Matsumoto, Nagano and unique rural areas like Shirakawa-go and so many others, - Are fascinated in Japanese art and paintings, both traditional and contemporary, including “Ukiyo-e”, wood block printings, - Are aggressive enough to stroll in the sky by a gondola over an active volcano and sulfurous gush! Oh dear! - Are passionate enough to directly touch the atmosphere of live, sometimes violent, “Matsuri”, traditional festivals in downtown, - Wish to experience Japanese traditional, elaborate craftwork, handed down for centuries, - Are enthusiastic about Japanese various pop culture and unique attractions, - Like, or need, to escape from your everyday stress or boredom anyway! Seeing is believing. Sightseeing is feeling through your own five senses! See Naples and Come on in Japan any time! I’m ready here whenever you are.

Our day trip to Tokyo and Mount Fuji

Nao is a great guide. He was very communicative and planned our tours according to our interest. He is a very delightful and patient guide. We all enjoyed his tour and we strongly recommend him

Sara K.

Hi, Sara Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad I was able to share such a fun time with you. I hope to see you again soon.

You'll be thankful to have Akinobu Sano as your tour guide!

It was such a pleasant visit to Kofu wth Mr Aki accompanying us around. A very helpful gentleman, Aki helped my family going around different places and even assisted our daughter with her registration process at iCLA, a university for international students. He was very well prepared with his itinerary and was able to make changes when requested. I wil definately get him to guide us again when visiting Yamanashi.

Zahidi A.

I’m glad that you have enjoyed the stay in Kofu despite the rainy weather. Hope you’ll have pleasant time while you stay in Japan.

Perfect day

Moto was a perfect guide who planned a wonderful, packed day trip for us in the Yamanashi region using just a rough guide of what it is we were interested in. We were extremely happy and could not have imagined a better experiece. Highly reccommend.

Eli M.

Thanks for a good review! It was a lovely day for the excursion of Yamanashi local sites with autumn leaves. Yamanashi has an iconic symbol as Mt. Fuji, but there are so many places worth seeing except for it. I am very happy that you found and enjoyed them. Please come to Yamanashi again and I will show you more and more!
