Guide profile:

[Important Notice]*I'm sorry, but I sometimes keep you wait for my answer because I do many tours.Thank you for your understand.*

**It's fully booked following period: January 1-14, March 24-May 21, September 27-November 19.


I’m Ayako, a very helpful licensed tour guide in Japan.


*If you hire me, I’m sure that you can start your trip with a smile and a relaxed atmosphere.

*Since I’m a local of Tokyo, I have a wide knowledge of Tokyo and suburban areas.

I'd like to take you to must-see spots and backstreet of this Tokyo metropolitan.

I do exciting tours to major sightseeing spots not only in Tokyo, but also in other parts of Kanto area (Kamakura, Hakone, Yokohama and Nikko, etc), Chubu region (Mt. Fuji, Shirakawago, Hida Takayama, and Nagoya), Tohoku (Hiraizumi and Sendai), and Hokkaido.

I had worked in a science museum in Tokyo for many years, so I know everything about museums in Japan. I’m so happy to help you experience our unique traditional culture such as Kabuki stage art, Sumo wrestling, and tea ceremony.

As you already know, Tokyo will hold the Olympic Games in 2020, so I’m sure that we provide more and more tourist attractions and wonder for visitors to keep coming back for. If you have any requests or dreams that you want to come true during your trip to Japan, please let me know. I’ll design your special plan and help you realize your dreams!

What a great guide, she did everything we asked for and even more. Even for dinner she organised very typical restaurants. She is very smart, explains very well but goes always to the point, no wasting of time, that's how we like it. I will certenly go back to Tokyo and have no doubt that i will hire her as a guide again. A very reliable way to travel. Thank you

Ayako was our guide for our two day tour of Tokyo & Nikko. She tailor-made the program to accommodate our needs & time constraints. She was very punctual, helpful, responsive & informative. We were very happy with her service & would be happy to recommend her to anyone visiting Japan.

We are a party of 4 which included our aged mom, and Aya san was superb in planning our 1 day trip to Nikko from Tokyo. She was punctual and knowledgeable and we covered the tour as we wanted it, tho' we were worried we won't be able to venture far with our mom with us. Aya san covered the historical aspects of the tour well and introduced us to the local cuisine as well. Will definitely call on her again, should we visit Tokyo in the future.
