【Danish below/Dansk nedenunder】
Thank you for visiting my profile page! 

My name is Aimu and I am a happy Japanese young lady who fell in love with Danish "hygge(coziness)". I offer personalized guided walking tour in Kansai area. I will help you have an amazing time in Japan before and during your stay. I am your tour guide, but hope to be your friend. Ask me anything about your trip to Japan, not only about the guided tour.

"When in Rome, do as the Romans do" 
This is what I believe is the best way to enjoy traveling while being welcomed by the locals at the same time. I hope to be a great cultural mediator and offer a special time in this beautiful country. Do not make your trip a regular fun holiday. Make it an opportunity to learn something new and enrich your life!

I am born and raised in Kobe, but I spent three years of my life in Denmark through exchange programs and a Master's degree program. I learned Danish through those years and feel as if Denmark is my second home. Besides, abundant experience abroad has provided different perspectives about Japan and I came to appreciate its beautiful culture. Various seasonal events and the food accompanying these events are one thing I love about Japan. Hot springs and tea ceremony are my favorite as well.

I have always loved traveling since I was a kid and travelled across Europe alone during my bachelor. I enjoy snorkeling and nature excursions as well as food and different cultures. Among my biggest accomplishments is that I recently reached the top of Mt. Fuji despite of the fact that I do not like hiking. I enjoy camping, snorkeling or nature excursions, but I find it super difficult to hike uphill. I am honestly not good at any sports except yoga, martial arts and marine sports. Therefore, this achievement is something very special to me, who prefers to eat snacks while I read novels/manga or watch TV rather than go running.

I have abundant experiences with guiding my foreign friends in Kobe, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and Tokyo. Many of these were conducted in Danish. As the master’s program was in English, my English skill is also a sufficient level for a guide. I am very motivated to play a role as a cultural mediator as well as a tour guide who can help you blend in to Japanese culture while showing you beautiful sites I love as a local. Motivated by this dream and my interest in Japanese culture, I will always work hard to expand my knowledge in Japanese culture so as to prepare for the questions you might come up with. Last but not least, I will make sure that you will have an amazing experience not only during the guided tour but during your entire stay in Japan by offering useful tips.

Tak for din interesse i min profil!

Jeg hedder Aimu. Jeg er en lykkelig ung japansk kvinde som elsker dansk hygge. Jeg tilbyder skræddersyede gåture i Kansai-området. Jeg hjælper dig både før og under dit ophold med at få en perfekt tur til Japan. Spørg mig alt om din tur til Japan, ikke kun om den guidede tur.

“Man må hyle med de ulve man er iblandt”
Jeg mener, at dette er den bedste måde at nyde rejser mens man bliver budt velkommen af de lokale mennesker. Jeg håber, at blive en god kulturmægler som kan tilbyde en speciel tid i dette smukke land. Lad ikke din rejse være en almindelig sjov ferie. Lav den til en mulighed for at lære noget nyt og berige dit liv.

Jeg er født og vokset op i Kobe, men har været i Danmark 3 år i alt gennem udvekslingsprogrammer og kandidatuddanelse. Jeg har lært dansk gennem disse år og føler at Danmark er mit andet hjemland. Desuden har mange års erfaring med at rejse i udlandet givet mig et nyt perspektiv på Japan, og jeg sætter i dag højere pris på den smukke japanske kultur. Forskellige traditionelle begivenheder og mad der kommer med disse begivenheder er én ting jeg elsker ved Japan. Varme kilder og teceremoni er også mine favoritter.

Jeg har altid elsket at rejse siden jeg var lille og har rejst alene gennem Europa under min bachelor. Jeg elsker snorkeling og naturudflugter samtidig med mad og forskellige kulturer. En af mine stolteste bedrifter er at jeg lige har vandret op ad Fuji-bjerget selv om jeg ikke så godt kan lide at vandre. Jeg kan godt lide camping, snorkeling eller naturudflugter, men det er vildt svært for mig at vandre opad stejle bjerge. Jeg er faktisk ikke særlig god til sport bortset fra yoga, kampsport og vandsport. Derfor er denne bedrift meget speciel for mig, som bedre kan lide at hygge med slik, romaner/manga eller fjernsyn.

Jeg har masse erfaring i at guide mine venner i Kobe, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara og Tokyo. Mange af disse ture har været på dansk. Mine engelskkompetencer er også tilstrækkelige for en turguide da jeg tog min kandidatuddannelse på engelsk. Jeg er motiveret til i ét at være turguide og kulturmægler, der kan hjælpe dig med at passe ind i den japanske kultur, mens jeg viser dig de smukke steder, jeg som lokal elsker. Motiveret af denne drøm samt min interesse i japansk kultur, vil jeg altid prøve at tilegne mig ny viden, så jeg kan svare på de spørgsmål I stiller mig. Sidst men ikke mindst, vil jeg sikre mig at I har en fantastisk tur ikke blot mens jeg viser jer rundt, men under hele jeres ophold i Japan, hvor jeg vil kunne give jer nyttige råd.

“ Day tour of Osaka ”

I had a great tour with Aimu, getting to visit all the locations that were suggested on the itinerary. Slightly unfortunate that some of them were closed (due to Covid-19) but Aimu just found more locations to visit on the go which suited me perfectly fine, as I like to just sort of explore randomly. Her knowledge on the history of where we went was fascinating and meant I learnt more about the areas then if I was alone. I also got to try a variety of different types of food. After the tour Aimu provided me with more places I could visit while I was in Osaka which was really helpful. Aimu was really fun to talk to and spend the day with (her English is excellent). I would highly recommend booking a tour with her.


Thank you very much for the nice comment and also for having me as a guide during this hard moment. I hope to see you again after all this things calmed down. Stay safe and please come again!

“ Day trip to Kyoto ”

Aimu was tireless in showing us around Kyoto. We had limited time to explore, but she made sure we immersed ourselves in the most interesting spots.


Thank you very much for your nice comment! I had fun going around with you too. Your questions were a little challenging, so I learned a lot during the tour as well :) Hope to see you again in the U.S!

“ Great taste of a guides hometown. ”

We loved spending the day in Kobe to learn about Aimu’s hometown of Kobe. Aimu is a great communicator and was great and being flexible in combining her local knowledge with our tastes and interests.

“ she has a wealth of knowledge of Chinese history which i found fascinating. Also, she was quite willing to customize my trip so that it met my needs and interests ”

-she was punctual -she has a good attitude -prior to my trip she helped me think through what options I had available. She spent considerable time in helping me plan my visit so that the days were structured around my particular interest which was photography. -she pointed out ways I could save money by doing things a certain way. -booked us a tea ceremony so i could photograph a Maiko. Excellent intro to the world of Maiko's and Geisha's.


I’m very grateful for your kind words. Thank you very much for a memorable day and all the experiences you’ve given me. However, I cannot stop giggling because you still don’t remember where you’ve been. Keep in mind that you visited Japan not China when you talk about the trip to your friends :D hehe Hope to see you again one day and take care until then ;)

“ Informative and fun ”

Enjoyed a brief 4 hour tour. with Aimu. Thank you Aimu for sharing your knowledge about the city. It felt more like a visit with an old school friend, than a pure formally guided tour. Really appreciated your flexibility within the framework of the agreed itinerary. Highly recommended.


Hi Moabi, Thank you for your kind words :) It was such a fun and relax afternoon with a great talk and pizza. Hope to see you again in the future!
