About Tour Guide Yukari S.

Hi! I'm Yukari.

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

I was originally born and raised in Toyama prefecture.

I had moved 2 times within Hokuriku region in my childhood for my fathers job.

I've been living in Ishikawa for 16 years in total.(4years in my childhood and 12years since I married. )

I have a family of 4.

I'm raising 2boys and have 2dogs.

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

So if you feel that I might have a similar taste with you, my tour will bring you a satisfied explore.

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

Every time I see those people, I felt that I might be able to do something which make their trip more memorable.

This is the reason why 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 personalized 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.

Beautiful Kanazawa (even in the wet!)

Thanks Yukari for a lovely day around Kanazawa. Despite the weather not being the best it didn't dampen the experience. It even added to the armtnosphere at times. I appreciated your knowledge, preparation and company. It is always a pleasure to get the insights of a local, adding context, history and meaning to sightseeing. I would highly recommend anyone planning on visiting Kanazawa to spend some of your time there with Yukari.

Wonderful Afternoon in Kanazawa!

My husband and I recently visited Kanazawa with Yukari. We had a wonderful experience!! She is very knowledgeable and a wonderful guide. We learned so much, and we were able to see a lot in only 3 hours. I wish we had been able o schedule an even longer tour. Thank you for everything, Yukari! I would highly recommend her if you are planning a trip to Kanzawa.

Hayley N.

Thank you very much for the review! I was also able to have a wonderful afternoon with such lovely couple. Even though it was 3hours, I felt that we had known each other for a long time and enjoyed a lot with you two. I hope you keep learning Japanese and come visit Kanazawa again!

Highly recommended.

I just finished the tour of Kanazawa with Yukari. Although it rained along the way, on and off, it was an incredible tour. Firstly, being able to communicate, I must have talked her ear off. It was so nice to have help with such simple things as taking the bus, paying for things etc. The knowledge was very much appreciated, from the perspective of someone local but also historical. I learnt much more than I would have walking around by myself. History, folklore, tales and more. The garden, I must admit I originally did not care much to see, I could not have been more wrong. It was amazing to see how much thought went into a truly three dimensional space. It’s not just about the plants, the trees or the items placed it’s about the meaning of the spaces and how intelligently it’s all brought together over the course of lifetimes. I would have enjoyed walking through on my own but I am certain it would not have been as special without the knowledge from Yukari. This was just one part of a three part adventure. The samurai district, again, on my own I would have seen maybe half of what we saw and learnt much less. The geisha district as well. It’s like having a backstage pass to something more meaningful than you can imagine. This is why I chose a guide and I was not wrong in that. With Yukari I went places I would not have thought to go, down streets I would not have thought I was allowed to go and most of all acquired an experience I will cherish forever. For that, a huge thank you to Yukari.

Thank you very much for your prompt review. I was able to enjoy myself listening to many stories from you. Also I appreciate that you could enjoy my tour and I am so happy to know that. My kid's and I will definitely try to make sweets which you have taught me in this winter! Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan, too.
