Izumi O.

Kamakura, Kanagawa, Japan

Hello! My name is Izumi. I'm a government certified official tour guide who have shown around Tokyo and its vicinity areas to foreign visitors for over 8 years.

Tokyo is the place that accommodates various requests from visitors around the world. As one of the most populated metropolitan areas in the world, Tokyo has big business districts with high-rise ferro-concrete buildings while old wooden row-houses are standing in areas where the atmosphere of good old Tokyo still remains. Tokyo also has more greenery areas than any other big cities in the world which used to be owned by old samurai warriors.

The world fastest express train system connecting Tokyo and local areas allow visitors to get in touch with different cultures from Tokyo in a day without changing their accommodations.

If you prefer stpending time here more slowly, there are a lot of local transportation systems, including street cars and community buses, that come punctually without any troubles.

Foods in Tokyo are quite world-wide. Not only a wide variety of Japanese traditional cuisines are offered, Tokyo also serve totally different foods that no foreigners feel homesick.

Old history where samurai governed Japan during 17 and mid-19C could be seen in temples and shrines as well. If you are tired of history, the urban culture welcomes you here in Tokyo.

My tours listed here might not cover every segment of Tokyo; however I am here ready to customize tours upon your request. Why don't you take a look at my tours and sign up now!!

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a very special day thanks to our wonderful guide, Izumi, who made sure that we took the right train to get to Ōfuna, where she met us to start our adventure. She is a kind and very knowledgeable guide, with excellent English skills. At no time did we feel rushed, and Izumi always gave us options what to do next. All of the shrines and areas around Enoshima and Kamakura were gorgeous, and Izumi gave us many useful details. We highly recommend this tour, and would love to tour with Izumi again.
