About Tour Guide Yuriko S.

I am Yuriko from Gifu Prefecture. I was an assistant English teacher at junior high school. I started to work as a National Certificate tour guide in 2019.

I'm very interested in kimono, tea ceremony and Japanese castles. I sometimes guide in kimono. There are so many nice places to visit in Gifu and Nagoya! I also guide around Takayama, Shirakawago, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka and Kanazawa if you pay my transportation fee from my hometown. Let's enjoy Japan with me!

Important

I will guide you every day except for the day that my schedule is not vacant.

I'm a local guide of Gifu, Nagoya and Aichi, but I can guide you around Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Kanazawa, Takayama and Shiga if you pay my transportation fee.

Let's enjoy early morning Kyoto and maiko experience

Kyoto
6 hours

Kyoto is one of the most popular places to visit, but so crowded. If you want to enjoy quiet Kyoto, I recommend you visit there early morning. In this tour, you can enjoy bamboo grove, morning coffee at a Japanese style coffee shop and beautiful river and mountains scenery from a wooden bridge. After that, why don't you try 'washoku', or Japanese cuisine and maiko, or cute apprentice geisha's dancing? My special early morning tour will give you wonderful and unforgettable memories in Japan!!

Yuriko S. Japan Tour Reviews

A beautiful day in Takayama!

Yuriko (also known as Lilly) was an amazing tour guide. She was so very knowledgeable about the history of Takayama and told interesting stories that we all enjoyed. Our family of 6 ranged in ages from 6 years to 70 years. I would highly recommend her as a guide and also recommend Takayama as a beautiful town to visit on your journey. Yuriko organised a lovely lunch and we enjoyed delicious food.

Aidan C.

Thank you for an excellent review and heartwarning comments!(^-^)/ I'm so happy to hear that you all enjoyed beautiful Takayama with my guiding. Your kids are so cute and they reminded me of my three sons when they were little kids . I also enjoyed answering your clever boy's interesting questions. Please come to Japan again! From your guide, Lily

Hiroshima & Miyajima Tour from Kyoto

Hope M.

Thank you so much for excellent review and comments! I'm so happy to see your comments. Your comments encourage me a lot. I will do my best to be a better English speaking guide. Arigatou gozaimasu.

Solid guide

Yuriko came a pretty long way from her home and our 4 hour tour was basically a full day commitment for her. But you wouldn't know it from her energy and enthusiasm. We hit most of the major sights in Takayama, so it was an efficient use of time, and she added some interesting information along the way. Her English skills were excellent, perhaps the best of the 4 guides we used. And like all of our guides she really went out of her way to accommodate our requests and make us feel like her personal guests. She even gave us small handcrafted gifts.

John W.

Thank you for giving me such a wonderful review and nice comment! I'm so happy to read your complement. I also had a good time with you in Takayama. I've sometimes got a good information from my guests during guiding. Yes! this time, your clever daughter gave me a nice information where the watch tower in Takayama Jinya can be seen.(I've visited there so many times, but I've never noticed about it(^-^;) Thank you so much for everything, and please come to Gifu, again! Your guide, Lily(Yuriko)
