Hello! I am Takako Takata. I was born in Kyoto and grew up in other several districts in Japan

where I was attracted by each place's feature. I started the tour guiding in 2009 in which I introduce interesting and unique spots to tourists. I love to share the marvelous time and moment with people through tours. In Japanese, we have a wonderful phrase expressing such moment and we call it "Ichigo Ichie". It means we have to treasure every encounter, a once-in-

a-lifetime-encounter that is , as it may not recur again. This word came from the spirit of tea ceremony. Anyway, let us enjoy extraordinary tours in Tokyo together, shall we ?

Kind and informative guide

We had the pleasure of spending the day with Takako recently on our trip to Tokyo. Takako was very easy to communicate with when organising our tour. She always replied quickly. On the day of our tour she was punctual and catered to all our needs. The tour was very informative. Takako engaged well with our teenage children and it really felt like we were visiting with a very knowledgeable family member. She has a very kind and gentle manner. I would not hesitate in recommending Takako to anyone as a tour guide. It was such a pleasure to meet her and we hope to use her again on our next trip. Thanks Takako

Superb day in Tokyo

This Taylor made tour in Tokyo with Tatako has been great experience. We enjoyed very much each site we have covered, and the magnificent lunch of ikiniku was amazing. The explanations and amazing personality of Tatako was the best of all. Arigato gosaimas. See you soo.

Thank you for your review. I was glad to have covered all requested sites with your nice family. I felt it especially relieved to show that Japan is actually the safe country as I explained on the way. I appreciate your invitation to the excellent lunch and the exciting digital museum. I will send back the picture to you soon. Enjoy Japan! See you again someday Best whishes Takako Takako

4 fabulous days !

I’ve been to Japan many times, but with the Japan’s tourist restrictions, I hired guides for my trip to Tokyo. This was a delayed graduation trip for my daughter who had very specific requests. We were pleasantly surprised and had the best time with Takako and learned so much! She was very knowledgeable, sweet, organized and adapted to our changing desires. Though we went to the usual tourist areas , Tsukiji , Sensoji, Ginza etc , we requested to visit areas like Omoide Yokocho, Katsushika and Yanaka. One of our many highlights was visiting a puppet artist in a tiny shop in Yanaka. Thank you Takako for our beautiful memories!

I am very glad to hear that your daughter's graduation trip became memorable for her. I felt you love Japan as your family root. It my pleasure to introduce Japan. Your tour is very special for me because we could talk a lot about Japanese traditions and cultures from the different view point. I enjoyed the last highlight, the papet theater together with you. I appropriate you and your daughter. I hope your happiness for the future.
