About

I'm YUKIKO. I'm a Licensed Tour Guide and a Registered Nurse.Thanks to increasing number of repeat, referred and new clients, tour guide is my current main job.

I was born and raised in Tokyo. After passing National tour guide examination, I have been worked as a professional tour guide since 2015. I've experienced to guide in various area near Tokyo as well as in Nagano, Kyoto and Osaka. I can do a tour for a wide range of clients such as solo traveler, couple, family, mobility challenged client and a big group. I am a mother of nine years old girl. So 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 also have a license of the National Examination for certified Domestic Travel Service Supervisor, 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!

Was great to see Tokyo

What a great experience learning about and experiencing Tokyo. I have taken virtual tours before and depending on the group it could get quiet. Not with Yuki, she came prepared with facts, questions and different ways to engage the group. I cannot say enough positive things about Yuki and her tour, trust me you will love it!

Yukiko F.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Chris! I'm so happy to hear that. I appreciate that I can do something for my guests even under this difficult situation. I think it is meaningful to see a real time viewing, what's going on over there now and communicate interactively. I'm always welcome you on Zoom and in Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

Excellent!

This was my first trip to Tokyo. I booked 4 hours with Yukiko and it was great! She is very friendly and helpful. She helped me buy a Suica card and explained how to use the metro. We went to Asakusa and Ginza. Yukiko had lots of information to share and even helped me with my shopping! I would book her again and highly recommend her.

Yukiko F.

Thank you for your wonderful review, Liza! I appreciate it. I'm sure that you've been enjoying to stay in Tokyo and discovered many new things for you. Seeing is believing. Even you've watched it on TV or book before, seeing them on your eyes and talking with local people always leave a memorable impression. I always welcome your next visit. Please enjoy the rest of your days in Tokyo. Domo Arigatou!!
