Hi everyone! My name is Naoko:)
Welcome to Japan & Thank you very much for checking out my profile.
I’m originally from Osaka, worked a sales representative at trading company for 8 years.
When I was studying abroad in England and USA, people helped me when I got in troubles and I had cultural misunderstandings. I’m very touched and from there experiences made me think that one day I will return the favor for foreigners in Japan. In 2017, I decided to join volunteering as a tour guide for foreign visitors and my desire to be a professional guide in Japan is getting bigger. Because I can’t forget pleasures and difficulties in guiding and making my guests happier. Therefore I decided to work as a professional guide to expand my knowledge and service for foreign travelers.
There are 3 main services of my tour.
1. Wi-Fi service
Need Internet??? No problem, while you are with me during tour I can give you my Wi-Fi-code and you can use Internet as much as you need! Let's share your memories to Friends and Family and research your souvenir and your interests right away.
2. Photo service
Please ENJOY the live view, not focusing on taking photos during tour. You have to see, feel and enjoy the live atmospheres. And let me take your photos and I will edit and send you tons of memories after tour by email . If you requested your original photo book can be produced. *additional cost
3. Travel design
I have traveled 41 prefectures out of 47 in Japan. I’m good at making itinerary and well know about hot visiting spots in Japan. I also love Onsen.
Tell me your requests and I am happy to make your own travel plan.
Ask me if I was not only a tour guide but also a concierge of your travel.
Since I grew up as a middle child in a big family, I’m open-mind, talkative and good at understand people’s feeling. I like activities such as playing tennis and golf, snowboarding, hiking, enjoying arts, food and Onsen, taking photos, watching films etc.
I can produce you a private tour in Kobe, Osaka, Nara and Kyoto.
Not just sightseeing if you like to experience Japanese cultural actives such as Karaoke, Green tea, Calligraphy, Zen meditation and so one, Of course we can do it!!
During my tour I will share my knowledge and give you some quiz so that you can enjoy learning about Japanese cultures.
Enjoy your private tour in Japan let’s make your travel special together.
Looking forward meeting you!!

I researched several private tour guides while planning my trip to Kyoto. Naoko was the best option out of all the guides I looked into. She made the process very easy. Naoko was quick to reply to emails and provided answers to all my questions. I really appreciated how efficient the tour was. She provided great recommendations and helped create an unforgettable day in Kyoto. Naoko was awesome! She spoke great english and was easy to communicate with. I really appreciated how polite and friendly she was. We had a great time seeing the sights and enjoying the local eats. I highly recommend Naoko.
