My name is YUKIKO. I'm a Licensed Tour Guide and a Registered Nurse. I've worked as a guide since 2015. I've been doing virtual experience on Amazon and for company's events since 2020. It's definitely a great step for myself and keeping my guiding skills for the last couple of years.
I live in Tokyo. Thanks to increasing the number of repeat, referred and new clients, tour guide is my main job.
I am a mother of 10 years old girl so that I'd be glad to welcome families with young children as well.
I used to teach Japanese cultures to elementary students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 at local and private elementary schools when I lived in Canada, United states, and New Zealand. My happiest moments with these children were when they look forward to another lesson every week. All lessons were customized and prepared after discussing with each classroom teacher. It was a challenging job, but this experience broaden my horizon and prompted me to become an English tour guide.
I have a license of Registered Nurse and a Medical interpreter. I've still worked as a nurse during the off- tourism season so that I've kept a medical back ground. There are some common thinking between Tour guide and Nurse, both jobs are required to put myself into their shoes. I'll make plans considering their physical conditions and will arrange any supports after discussing about the tour. I've already experienced to do several tours for mobility challenged clients who have intractable disease and have a difficulty for a long walking. Mobility challenged customers (cane/wheelchair) are always welcomed.
I'd love to make your trip meaningful and unforgettable. Please feel free to contact with me anytime.
I'm looking forward to meeting you in my tour! Arigatou!

What a superb day, one we will remember and cherish forever. From planning our day to fulfilling on it, Yukiko guided us through! Very knowledgeable - we learnt so much and gave meaning to what we were seeing. Lots of different aspects of Tokyo we would never have found if we had tried to navigate ourselves. Thank you so much.
Thank you very much for your heartfelt words! I am very happy to work with you about your tour from the beginning to the date which is possible to make only for you. I always cherish the motto "This meeting would be an once in a lifetime opportunity for both of us" in my job. What really matters is not the tour itself, but how much I can be sincere for the guest. Have fun and enjoy the rest of your days in Japan!
Our first day of trip in Tokyo has been great and awesome because of Yukiko. She is a professional in tour guiding service. She always ensure that our family are able to get the best in all our experiences. She even extended to helping us buy my kid's favorite toy and many more requests during the whole day. Much more, I am so glad to have been accomodated by her as she is one of the sought for guides in "Gowithguide." All the best Yukiko. Thank you so much :-)
I can't find a better word to express my gratitude. Domo Arigatou gozaimasu! It was a great meeting all of your family. I cherish the memory of today as once in a lifetime opportunity. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your day in Japan!!
First of all, Yukiko's English is very good and very easily to understand, which helped our discussion. She provided good ideas and comments to help me make decisions for our upcoming trip to Japan. She also shared useful links so I can further my research after our consultation session. Thanks, Yukiko!
I started this service in 2020 for future guests as well as Live zoom tour. I've had a passion that I'd like to do my best what I can do. I'm very glad to hear that my knowledge and expertise could help your future trip to Japan. It's also nice to talk smoothly in person on zoom. Have a wonderful trip with your group!!
Yukiko is an amazing, very kind, friendly, and happy person. She provided us with an very personal, beautiful experience, even singing happy birthday for my husband. It was an ideal present and I would immediately book with her again. She was also very quick to respond and very helpful when I mixed up the date and time. Thanks a lot, Yukiko, you are a radiant star.
Thank you for joining Live Zoom Tour in Asakusa! I'm very happy to meet you and your husband on Zoom regardless of far distance. It's amazing that we can share the same view while chatting although we are living on almost opposite sides of the world. Thank you once again, I'm really looking forward to meeting you in person next time!
