About

I was born and grew up in Yokohama. I used to work in Tokyo for more than 20 years. I became the National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter in English in 2013. At first, I had attended a volunteer group which provided a tour of the Imperial Palace East Gardens until 2015. I guided more than fifty times in the garden as a volunteer and studied about Japanese history and culture. Based on this experience, I became a tour guide of this online site in 2015.

Since then, I have guided more than 500 tours in Tokyo as well as Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone, Kyoto, Nikko, etc., while improving my tours. My tours are very flexible and I always do my best to customize them according to the interests of my guests. I studied about the places and will provide you knowledge to appreciate them more deeply than just visiting there by yourself or a member of group tours. I like foods and I know many restaurants which provide typical Japanese lunch with reasonable price without waiting too long. Therefore, I am sure that I can provide you the best tours customized to your interests. It will be my great pleasure to help you to enjoy your stay in Japan. So please be my guest!!

Important

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Japan has been closed to foreign travelers since March, 2020. This restriction has been eased since October 11th, 2022 but you still need to vaccinated three and more times or have a certificate of COVID-19 negative . Please ask me the availability of the tour before you book it. I was vaccinated four times with the Pfizer one.

An enjoyable afternoon walk in Tokyo

This was a great way to spend the afternoon in Tokyo with a tour of the Imperial Palace Garden with a history lesson. We would happily do this again. Thank you Yuki.

Yuki K.

Dear Paul, Thank you for your review. I feel sorry to spend so much time for the history to be late for the garden in the palace. There are many similar gardens in Tokyo area which used to be a garden of Samurai lord's Mansions. I hope you had been there during your stay. Best regards, Yuki

Tokyo 4 hr tour

If you want to cover off the beaten path and hidden gems of Tokyo, Yuki is your man. He also took us to his local favorite restaurant for ramen in Tokyo and it was awesome. We loved both ours tours with Yuki. Thank you again.

Yuki K.

Dear Viraj, Thank you for your review. I guess you have arrived Osaka without trouble with your wife. The weather was not so stable during the tour and we have to be flexible to make the best use of your time in Tokyo. Best regards, Yuki

Tokyo 7hr tour

Yuki, was absolutely perfect for our Tokyo tour. He’s really intricate knowledge of the city. We visited so may places in half a day. We liked him so much we booked him for another half day the next day.

Yuki K.

Dear Viraj, We visited Tsukiji fish market and Imperial Palace on the day. It was my pleasure to help you to travel Japan such as activating JR Pass, showing the gate for the Shinkansen. I sincerely hope you and your wife will enjoy traveling Japan after waiting three years due to COVID-19 pandemic. Yuki

Yuki is the best

Yuki was the best. I was running late due to immigration and customs but Yuki was very patient and professional waiting for me. He provided me excellent knowledge of the area and places we visited. Yuki went the extra mile to make sure everything was great during the entire tour. Will use him again next time I visit.

Dear Jeff, Everything is good that ends well. I had almost given up when you appeared at the airport. I enjoyed touring around Tokyo with you. It will be a good lesson for me. Thank you for writing the review so soon. Yuki
