Chiba (Living), Tokyo
Hi! I'm Momoko Kobayashi.
Call me "PEACH" if you like because "momo" means "peaches" in Japanese.
I grew up in Chiba Prefecture and I've lived in Urayasu, Chiba for almost 20 years.
Studied Human Resorces Administration at a college in Kentucky, the U.S.A. and have B.A.
Currently I teach English to adults. I also have work experience in the financial industries in Tokyo.
I am a mother of a son and recently love playing catch with him. Please feel free to ask if you want something or/and somewhere for your children to enjoy during your trip.
I've been into Ukiyo-e as well as all kinds of music. I'm a Mt. Fuji lover and love seeing the scenery from my apartment.
I love talking to people and wish to meet you soon!
It was our first day in Tokyo and Momoko was a great help with getting us around this huge city. We come from a regional town in Australia where there is only 100 000 population and Tokyo is so huge!! Momoko always ensured we kept up with her, ensuring we go to see the beauty of Tokyo by showing us the Gingko Trees and then she helped us purchase our Shinkansen tickets at Tokyo Station. She walked us through the beautiful Korakuen Gardens as there were a lot of people around, being a Sunday and there were a lot of celebrations going on in the city for the new Emperor she didn’t want us to be caught up in the crowds so we didn’t waste our time with her. Momoko managed to find us a place to eat Japanese curry while we were out and about - something we saw on YouTube before we came to Tokyo. We finished the day by visiting a Shrine where we were fortunate to see a traditional Japanese Bride dressed in her Silk Kimono. Even tho our time was finished with Momoko she escorted us back to our station. Thank you Momoko for a wonderful first day in Tokyo!!!
Roz, I would like to say how greatful I spent five hours with you and your husband. Your generous and friendly personalities helpted me a lot! Yes, we were lucky to see something traditional at Meiji Jingu Shrine. Enjoy the rest of your trip!
