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.

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.

Hello! I'm Leandra, and I'm stoked to be your guide as we dive into Japan. With seven years under my belt living here, I've become your trusted source for all things related to exploring this amazing country. Whether it's navigating the bustling city streets or trekking through scenic nature trails, I've got you covered. I have extensive experience guiding excursions through mountains, inner city hidden gems, underground music scenes, and scenic day trips in the vicinity of Tokyo. When I'm not guiding, you can catch me indulging in my hobbies of digging into Japanese history, hitting up local shrines, lacing up my running shoes for a jog, scouting out new restaurants, or hitting the trails for a hike. Originally from sunny SoCal, my roots stretch back to both Japanese and Mexican heritage, with a sprinkle of samurai lineage thrown in for good measure. So, if you're ready to dive into the real Japan, away from the tourist traps, join me for an adventure you won't soon forget. Let's do this!

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.

Trip to Yokohama

Had a wonderful day exploring Yokohama. Kaneo was very responsive prior to our trip and arranged a great itinerary for us. I had wanted to do an authentic Tea ceremony and that was arranged. Went for a great lunch in Chinatown and explored beautiful gardens. Would definitely recommend him highly.

Laura H.

Thank you for your quick and warm review. It was a little hot day but it was luck not to rain. I myself enjoyed authentic tea ceremony practice. I am happy to know you like Sankeien garden. I wish you will enjoy the rest of tour in Japan.

Nice, relaxing walking tour!

I recently had the pleasure of taking a walking tour of Yokohama with Mai as my guide, and it was an excellent experience. Mai was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating throughout the tour. She offered helpful insights on what to do and frequently checked in with me about which routes to take, ensuring I had the best experience possible. Mai also provided fantastic recommendations for places to visit after the tour, which added even more value to my time in Yokohama. The tour itself was very relaxing, and I especially enjoyed sampling some delicious pastries along the way. Additionally, I got to enjoy some amazing Chinese food from Chinatown, which was a delightful part of the tour. Overall, Mai's expertise and friendly demeanor made this tour a memorable highlight of my trip. Highly recommended!

Alexis W.

Thank you so much! I'm really impressed with your specific and positive review. It reminds me of all the places we visited and all the fun we had together. Despite the unusual heat for this time of year, I am glad that you enjoyed the long walks during the tour, which allowed me to introduce various aspects of Yokohama. Have fun your rest stay in Japan! ありがとう!

Yokohama with Yuki

We had a wonderful experience in Yokohama with Yuki. He was very informative being a native of Yokohama and took special care of me, by slowing down the pace because I was recovering from Respiratory illness. My pace was slow and I would often stop for a picture of nature and he would patiently wait on me. We enjoyed his kindness the most. Recommend highly. Sandi & Chip from Hawaii

Dear Sandi Thank you very much for your review. I'm very happy to know you appreciated my tour. Thank you for taking my tour of Yokohama. Yuki
