About

I used to work as a part-time English teacher at a High School for about 25 years.

As I am a National Government Licensed Interpreter, I have worked at a tourist Information center since 10 years ago. Over the year working, I have accumulated experience specializing in guiding in Hakone and Odawara areas . I like meeting foreign countries visitors and let them know more about Japan and local culture. Beside guiding, I have many hobbies which I will like to share. They are Calligraphy by using ball-point pen, Wearing Japanese Kimono, especially using the Kimono fabric to make up simple dresses,cooking home-cooked dishes,Ikebana-Japanese style flower arrangement and teaching Japanese to foreigners.

I look forward to having a chance to meet you and wish you will enjoy your trip and a fabulous memory.

Look no further....

Such a lovely experience with dear Kimiko. She showed up early every day and stayed with me through everything my heart had desired to see and experience. She did much homework on her own after listening to my general wishes for this Japanese experience. I recommend her highly and again want to thank her for making my Tokyo experience MAGICAL. ANNE

Kimiko is a wonderful tour guide

Kimiko is a very pleasant person who gives wonderful insights into the Japanese culture and fascinating knowledge on all the historical sights. She had made an extra effort to prepare in advance and gave us a very cute memento as a parting gift. It was an absolute pleasure being shown around Tokyo by her. We can heartily recommend her services.
