Hello, I’m Makoto, a licensed interpreter guide living in Yokohama. My guiding is based on the deep understanding of the difference between Western and Japanese culture. I have absorbed the difference through my 40 years of international business experience and particularly with 15 years of working experience in European countries.

I am happy to guide you around Tokyo with customized tours under your requests. There are places in Tokyo still not well known to tourists. I will be more than happy to guide you around my home town Yokohama together with Kamakura and Hakone.

I am a fluent English speaker, a business level French speaker and a daily conversation level Italian speaker.

I look forward to meeting you and spending unforgettable time with you.

Outstanding tour guide and person

Makoto is a wonderful person, knowledgeable tour guide, and has a fantastic handle on the English language. He was flexible with our schedule (worked around a typhoon) and physical limitation. I could not recommend him more highly!

Dear Susan, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. It was my great pleasure guiding you two for two days. It was a pity that we missed one day due to the typhoon. I learnt a lot from you. I hope you are having enjoyable days in Osaka, a city full with delicious food. Also, a safe journey back to Tokyo! Best regards, Makoto
