I've been working as the nationally licensed tour guide for foreign tourists since 2010. I love meeting people from all over the world.!I believe that Japan has many interesting aspects for tourists. I'd like to show you the culture unique to Japan such as Buddhist statues,Japanese gardens, Japanese food, sake and shopping.

Very thoughtful exploration of Kyoto

Tomo was well-prepared for our day together and spoke very good English. She has a can-do attitude and we learned a ton. I can't imagine taking a risk on a non-licensed guide. She was very knowledgeable, spoke perfect English, had a personal pass for entry to the temples and shrines. Plus she knew the city well and made the best use of our time together to be sure we saw everything of interest to us.

Fantastic Kyoto

Tomoko-san provided an excellent tour for our family of 7 in Kyoto. She timed the transportation and event crowds to maximise our enjoyment while being flexible for our distractions; highly recommend.
