About Tour Guide Saki K.

Hi! Thank you for checking my profile, I'm Saki. If you are interested in discovering the Central Japan area, Aichi, Gifu, Mie, Nagano please leave it on me!

I was born in Aichi prefecture where Nagoya is located in. It's a shame many tourists skip our Central area on their itinerary as it's not known well as destination for tourist. However, I'm proud of my region where you can experience Japanese people local life and beauty of hidden nature.

If you are a little bit tired with the touristic places please visit my region. I'll take you calm and tranquil nature places, tasting our traditional cuisine and experiencing local people's real life.

As my husband is from USA, I have many experiences to take my foreign family and friends my favorite places. It was my pleasure they loved where I presented and discovered different side of Japan. I'd like to help making your trip unforgettable and full of new experiences.

I'm really looking forward to presenting you our Central region and seeing you.

Thank you for reading my profile, see you soon!

※If you need the guide to be conducted in Spanish, I can attend in Spanish too.

Si necesita que la guía se haga en español, estoy disponible en español también.

Nagoya, Matcha, and more!!!

We had an amazing time with Saki in Nagoya! We learned so much and were able to visit the Nagoya Castle, had delicious food, and did some shopping. Saki was so kind and fun to spend time with! I highly highly recommend Saki if you are traveling to the Nagoya or Kyoto area. She even helped show us the bus system that we would be using the following day, sent us recommendations for dining and shopping in Nagoya, and answered all of our questions. Thank you so much Saki, we look forward to seeing you the next time we visit Japan!

Great Time

Saki was a super helpful guide. We’re stranded here in Nagoya because of a severe weather cancellation of our flight. Despite that, our time with her gave us a bit of respite from the anxiety of getting home. She guided us expertly through the streets & subways of Nagoya. We saved time instead of navigating it ourselves getting lost. She was also fun to converse with & had a good instinct for what sights & experience we wanted to hit. Overall an enjoyable time.

Saki K.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review! It was my pleasure to be your guide and support you while this stressful period. I loved our conversation today, we had many common things to talk about! I appreciate a lot for many pictures you took, they looked all nice! Hopefully you can go back to home soon and back to normal life as soon as possible. Thank you again for your booking, I hope we can see in the future again!

Awesome visit to Ghibli Park

I had a fantastic time with Saki on the studio ghibli park tour. She was friendly and absolutely lovely through the day. Everything was a breeze and we just turned up to meet her at the station, didn't even need to get tickets ourselves and she was clear on which parts of the park still had tickets available. She is also a ghibli fan so you can have plenty to talk about when discussing your favourite ghibli film. Saki provided useful history and guidance on the tour and also provided tips of things to do in Nagoya for the remainder of our day there. She was also flexible in where we were dropped off to fit in on our next stopping point in Nagoya. Saki also thought of things for us to do in Kyoto and tokyo that fit our interests. Would highly recommend the tour with Saki. We had a great time. Thank you! ありがとうございました。????

Saki K.

A Wonderful Local Guide

We had an enjoyable day with Saki. She showed us how to enjoy the Nagoya grilled eel specialty for lunch, it was very delicious. We also managed to get some souvenir purses at Osu shopping street even though many shops do close on Wednesday. It was a hot day but our all day subway pass was helpful to stay out of the heat. We ended up having a lovely ice green tea and snack at a hidden gem of a tea shop before ending our tour. She is really helpful and personable and offered her assistance to get back to the hotel via WhatsApp when we were lost. She is one of the best local guides we have had and we hope to visit Nagoya again!

Saki K.
