About

I am Makiko. I was born in Tokyo and I've lived here my whole life. I therefore know a lot about Tokyo and the surrounding areas. Tokyo has various kinds of charms of both traditional and modern aspects. I would like to show you the best parts of our exciting city.

I am a National licensed tour guide in English. I am an open-minded, sociable and thoughtful person. I really enjoy meeting people from other countries to share our cultures. I have experience in hosting students and interacting with people from across the world.

I studied a flower arrangement course in the UK and have been teaching flower arrangement for many years. I have experience in Japanese style flower arrangement and tea ceremony. I love flowers and plants and enjoy visiting gardens. I like traveling (more than 30 countries) and watching films. I also love cooking, eating and drinking. So I can introduce you Tokyo's diverse food culture.

I am flexible about destinations and can arrange the tour according to your requests. I try hard to make your stay in Japan very special and memorable. Let's explore our beautiful and unique country together.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you!

Wonderful 1 Day Tour in Tokyo

We had a great day in Tokyo with Makiko. We had a full day where we visited some of Tokyo’s highlights. This was our first day of a four day stay in the city and Makiko made us feel comfortable with transportations and helped us with the rituals at shrines & temples. We enjoyed lunch at a small local restaurant and had a wonderful time. This was the perfect way to start our trip. Thanks Makiko!

A lovely day with a lovely person

From the time Makiko met us on the morning of our tour to Kamkura until she dropped us off in the evening back at our hotel in Tokyo, she was fully engaged with us, helping us to understand Japanese history, language and culture while seeing to our needs and wishes. We enjoyed every temple, garden, train ride and meal on our itinerary and also the spontaneous stops into little shops that caught our eye. The bamboo forest was a highlight as was the food hall at the Kamakura train station where we tasted many delicious seasonal Japanese delicacies. Thank you, Makiko!

Tokyo and Nikko with Makiko

We had one day in Tokyo and one day inNikko with Makiko and found her very helpful, informative, and punctual. She explained the railway systems clearly, so we found our way to the appropriate stations. She answered questions about Japanese history. She `took very good care of us in Nikko, where it was pouring rain.
