Hi I'm Yuka!
I'm a Japanese native that lived in Chicago for 5 years in my youth and came back to Japan at the age of 12. I studied Japanese culture, especially folklore, in University. My thesis was about Sumo jinku (the songs Sumo wrestlers sing on special occasions) and I reckon the best part of that was to go out drinking with sumo boys :)
I worked as a tour leader for an Australian tour company for 7 years until 2013, and simply loved taking people around Japan, sharing the beauty and craziness this country offers.
I want to be more of your good friend in Japan than a "tour guide,

Hi, I’m Aki, a government licensed tour guide, living in Yokohama, Japan.
I was born and raised in Kagawa prefecture, facing the beautiful Seto Inland Sea, in western Japan. Kagawa is famous for its iconic food Sanuki Udon noodles and Shikoku Ohenro, a religious journey to sacred 88 temples in Shikoku island.
I had worked for a global electronics company in Tokyo for 30 years and retired early. Working with foreign colleagues gave me fantastic opportunities to learn Japan from their points of views and I came to think it's interesting to talk about Japan with foreign people.

Hello! I am Asami, National Government Licensed Guide, living in Roppongi, famous for nightlife, in the center of Tokyo.
I love traveling and so far I have traveled 36 countries and 36 prefectures within Japan. It is the era that people can go anywhere with smart phones without big problems. But my best memories among those trips are always related to the interactive communication with local people. I can always learn the area or the country much further when I have local guides or friends during the trip. I believe I can add a nice taste to your memorable trip.

Hello, I am Chiaki. I have been living in the central Tokyo area for more than 30 years with my family. I love history, art, architecture and dining, and I am pleased to share my expertise and knowledge as a local and professional. While I was in the UK, I started to look at Japan as an outsider. I found how interesting and attractive Japanese culture is, including its history, art, cuisine, etc, which has made me a guide-interpreter.
Tokyo is one of the world's biggest cities with an interesting mix of tradition and innovation, skyscrapers and gardens, artworks and technology, and so on.

Hey there! My name is John and I am here to show you around Japan! Tourist spots are always good, enjoy the famous sights of Kamakura and Shonan, but how about the less available spots off the oversaturated tourist path - places too difficult reach or simply hidden from your travelling compass.
Originally from Perth, Western Australia, I have lived in Japan for 14 years including 2-years as a student and the rest working and travelling the country. A Japanese translator/interpreter by trade, I have 5-years of experience as a tour guide and assure that my tours will be thoroughly enjoyed!
