Hi! I'm Yukari.

I'm a government licensed guide of Kanazawa city.(Kanazawa Visitor's Host)

I'm originally born in Toyama.I had moved 2 times within Hokuriku region in my childhood for my fathers job.

I've been living in Ishikawa for 14years in total.(4years in my childhood and 10years since I married. )

I have a family of 4 and raising 2 boys now.

Sometimes I work at Kanazawa guesthouse and enjoy meeting and talking with people from all over the world.

I love animals, nature, music, photos, camping, and good food.

So If you feel like I have a similar taste in those things to you, my tour will be able to bring you a satisfied explore.

Here in Kanazawa,the tourist have been increasing since the opening of Hokuriku Shinkansen in 2015. Many of the foreign tourists are walking around throughout the city holding their smartphone by hand.

Every time I see that scene,I feel I'd like to do something which make their trip more memorable.

This is the reason I took the license of Kanazawa Visitor's Host and started a local tour guide.

Although I've just started as a tour guide in 2018,I sincerely enjoy making a plan that every single guest would be able to make the day here in Kanazawa perfectly.

I have ever lived in

Toyama,Fukui,Ishikawa,Chiba,Tokyo (Japan),and Toronto (Canada).

I have ever been to USA (Seattle,LA,CA,NY) Australia (Cairns) New Zealand(Auckland) Korea,China,and Canada (many cities).

Let's go for Kanazawa tour just for you!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any inquiries.

Yukari lead the way on a magnificent family day trip in Kanazawa!

From the onset Yukari was exceptional! Prompt replies to our emails and enquiries regarding our one day trip to Kanazawa. We were a family of four from Australia on our second trip to Japan, with two older children, 19 & 15 and had decided to do a day trip to Kanazawa from Nozawa Onsen, where we were having a ski holiday. Yukari organised a proposed agenda based on our needs, which somehow managed to include every site we wanted to visit plus more. We arrived on the Shinkansen at 9.30am, and were warmly greeted by Yukari at the station. From that moment, we relaxed and enjoyed the sites and delights of Kanazawa with Yukari leading the way! Yukari was a great guide with much historical and cultural knowledge to share at each location, and made it enjoyable and relevant for the whole family. Our day was full of sight seeing, walking, catching the local bus, lunch in a local restaurant that met everyone's dietary requirements, afternoon tea with gold leaf coffee and also some shopping for lovely japanese momentos to take home. Our day was non stop (which we loved) and included the Omicho Fish Market, Nagamachi Samurai District, D.T. Suzuki Museum, Kenroku-en Garden, Kanazawa Castle Park and Kazue & Higashi Chaya District. Yukari had us back in time at the station to catch our return 6.30pm Shinkansen, with some added gift shopping at the station before we left. As a family, Yukari made our day trip to Kanazawa memorable, informative, easy and enjoyable. It was a highlight of our trip. I can recommend Yukari highly, especially the laughter, her professionalism and the beautiful Kanazawa sites shared together that day. Yukari was brilliant!

A perfect day in Kanazawa

Hiring Yukari is one of the best decision I made for our trip to Japan. Luckily, my husband stumbled upon the triple lights website just days before our trip. Otherwise, our day in Kanazawa will not be as enjoyable. Yukari is punctual yet flexible, professional yet friendly and generous. Communication with her through triple lights was a breeze and nothing was too much trouble for her. Walking with her around Kanazawa was like having an old friend showed us around her town. My sons love her as well. She made our 8 hour walking trip very enjoyable and paced it perfectly, even with a 9 year old in tow. We hit all of the tourist attractions, scored exquisite souvenirs and had yummy local food and snacks without feeling rushed. At the end of our tour, even when we were running a hour late, Yukari insisted on taking us back to our hotel. I was very touched with her gesture and insisted that we would be fine in making our way back without her. She was very apologetic and hesitant but accepted at last. She also prepared souvenirs for each of my sons. We will definitely hire her again when we come back to Kanazawa. We love you Yukari.

Warmest regards to you and your family, Yukari
