Greetings! I would be your NO.1 tour guide for many reasons. Like you, I was once a tourist and after settling in Japan for 9 years, I have a deep insight of not only what a tourist would like to see and also can introduce the places only locals would know. I have lived in Taiwan and NZ before moving to Japan so I can show you around in English or Mandarin.
I have traveled all over Japan and discovered many hidden places that you would not find on the typical guidebook. I am always on top of what's happening in the city so be sure to see some events that are only available on the day of yo

Hi, I'm Ikumi, it means "smell good" :)
I'm from Kobe and live in Tokyo now.
After I graduated high school in Japan, went to an Uni in Hawaii and Ohio (go buck eyes!) majoring anthropology. My thesis was "Why Hello Kitty became big boom in the world." How the world has accepted Japanese pop culture.
Spent time as a writer in NY and volunteer to revitalize a small village in Thailand for a month.
I came back to Japan and worked as an editor and marketing for 10 years. Then, I just switched my job simply because I love to travel. Love to meet new people, share different culture and his

Hi! Welcome to Japan. My name is Shoji Kitamura, a licensed English-speaking tour guide. Please call me Shoji, which is the same sound as a sliding screen made of wood and paper you may have seen in a traditional Japanese room.

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.

I always loved showing people what I know and learning from people what I don't know. I love to visit places, talk with people, study cultures, eat, appreciate art, compare the difference, express feelings ... With my experience of spending my childhood in San Diego, 3 years in Okinawa island, 6 months in Barcelona, many years in Japan and visiting many countries, I believe I could be the one who would keep you entertained the whole time (yes, I am famous for the humor during projects with foreign countries at work) and correspond all your needs and wishes while you are here in Tokyo.

Would you like to tour around Tokyo with a friendly, caring local? Wouldn’t it be better if that “local” is a licensed tour guide and a Japanese language teacher? I’m a professional Japanese teacher who has newly obtained a national tour guide license.
I love meeting new people, so I’ve been actively guiding foreign visitors in and around Tokyo as a volunteer for the past couple of years. The more I do so, the more I fall deeply in love with my little country full of wonders.
I love Kabuki and other Japanese traditional performing arts. I myself have been learning Japanese classical dance

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.
