Anji Yuuko Private tour guide in Tokyo, Kamakura - Japan

Anji Yuuko

Guide profile:

-- Notice about 2020 Cherry blossom season's booking -- Please book as soon as you decide to visit -----------------------------------------------------------

Hi, I'm Anji. My first name is Yuuko, but call me Anji as your guide.

Your trip would start when you plan it, wouldn't it? You may have many concerns such as transportations, accommodations, foods, customs as well as what you can do, see and go etc., when visiting other countries.

My private tour will start when you confirm the booking. I'll help you to have better understanding of various things Japanese before coming to Japan as much as I can. If you want to go to specific places or to buy something special, please tell me in advance.

See my detailed Ryogoku tour plan below for example. Besides it, Asakusa, Meiji Jingu Shrine with Harajuku (Takeshita Street, Cat Street) & Omotesando, Ginza with Kabukiza Theater, Tsukiji market, Imperial Palace with the East Gardens,other popular Gardens such as Hama-rikyu, Koishikawa Korakuen, Rikugien, Shijuku Gyoen, etc.), Odaiba with Toyota Showroom Megaweb, Shinjuku, Street car running area such as Setagaya line or Arakawa line and of course, Ikebukuro (where I live) are also all in my line.

I like Kabuki. I go to see it at least once a month, which provides me a lot of traditional Japanese aspects. Kabuki includes almost all Edo cultures by its words, music, dancing, costumes, stage-sets, pops and stories.

I'm still learning Kabuki and Edo culture as well as English to be your best tour guide.

I'll look forward to have awesome private tours with you!

Tips for Tokyo and some other places in Japan will be updated at my blog site here! https://anjiprivatetour.wordpress.com/

Note: My father (92) is in elderly home for dementia, so I couldn't do my tour regularly nor update my blog recently. However, once I confirmed the booking, I'll be your best guide!

We recently did a one day tour of Odaiba with Anji and I can say without a doubt that she is an amazing tour guide. She was very pleasant, knowledgeable, friendly and my kids just loved her! My daughter was sad when she had to say bye to Anji. Anji was very flexible with our needs and did not even bat an eyelid when my kids were being difficult. I’ve had a lot of tour guides in many different countries and I can easily say that Anji’s one of the best guides that I’ve ever had!

Anji is great. We are a group of 10 adults and 2 kids but she managed it quite well. I have no doubt Anji will be delightful small or big group, as she puts the guests' interests all the time. She can tweak the itinerary depending on the mood and pace of the group, which I think is very helpful for us to really enjoy the places. :) bonus is she makes a photo album of the entire trip at the end. Such a sweet gesture!

Sightseeing with Anji is brilliant! She explains many things about Tokyo and Japan and has a big knowledge. Anji cares a lot about the wishes of her guest what makes the tour perfect. We have already had sightseeing tours with guides all over the world but never had such a brilliant tour. It was just perfect! During the tour she always took pictures of us and at the end of every tour she sent a link to us with all the pictures explaining the day tour by pictures. Thank you very much!!!

Anjii was excellent from the start when I was just inquiring about possible tours given a short half day layover of about 5 hrs only. She is friendly, bilingual and does research on what you want to do and are interested in. She knew all the shortcuts and saved me time on this rapid tour. She also knows this city and history in and out. I highly recommend her for anyone needing a friend to guide them to both hidden and all popular attractions in Tokyo. Arigato Gozaymasu Anjii-san! Best regards!

Anji was simply SUPERB. She treated my family as if it were her own. She was meticulous in her planning, flexible in her arrangements, tireless in her efforts, and showed us Tokyo like a local. Without her, we would not have enjoyed Tokyo. I recommend her to anyone (especially those who have a demanding family like mine). She really goes out of her way to make her guests feel at home. God Bless Her.
