Makiko N.

Tokyo, Japan

I am Makiko. I was born in Tokyo and I've lived here my whole life.

I therefore know a lot about Tokyo and the surrounding areas. Tokyo has various kinds of charms of both traditional and modern aspects. I would like to show you the best parts of our exciting city.

I am a National licensed tour guide in English. I am an open-minded, sociable and thoughtful person. I really enjoy meeting people from other countries to share our cultures. I have experience in hosting students and interacting with people from across the world.

I studied a flower arrangement course in the UK and have been teaching flower arrangement for many years. I have experience in Japanese style flower arrangement and tea ceremony. I love flowers and plants and enjoy visiting gardens. I like traveling and watching films. I also love cooking, eating and drinking. So I can introduce you Tokyo's diverse food culture.

I am flexible about destinations and can arrange the tour according to your requests. I try hard to make your stay in Japan very special and memorable. Let's explore our beautiful and unique country together.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you!

*Please send a message to confirm my availability before booking, thank you.
*I do a tour within 6 people.

A Recent Review of this guide

I was not only the traveler who booked a tour with Makiko, butalso the travel advisor who booked the tour, and Makiko was an absolute delight. As a travel agent, I had booked a tour through another company but that tour operator canceled at the last minute. I reached out to Makiko, who responded within minutes and confirmed our tour immediately. She planned a comprehensive itinerary, met us early, stayed late with us and took care of us at every step. She's an absolute gem. Book with her!
