I love meeting new people and exploring places with my clients. I offer tours both in Tokyo and it's country-side that will give you an opportunity to see Japan from a new angle.
Japan has been my home for more than 30 years. To me my host country is a unique place of contrasts, where the traditional and modern walk hand in hand. It's a country of ancient temples and sky reaching high-rises, of tranquil gardens and busy city streets. It is my pleasure to help others experience the charm of Japan through the unique perspective of a local, who also happens to be a westerner.
I was one of the first Tokyo guides of ToursByLocals - I worked for the company until 2010. In that year I left for Santa Fe, New Mexico to pursue a degree in education. While there I continued to work as a guide with a local tour company. Now that I am back to Japan, I am ready to resume guiding foreign visitors here and assist them in having the best and most authentic Japan experience. My tours are flexible and can be customized to meet your particular needs so don't hesitate to contact me with special requirements.
I am looking forward to hear from you!
A Recent Review of this guide
Although this your guide is not a native Japanese, she was extremely knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable. She really helped us not only navigate but truly understand the train system. She gave us the confidence we needed for the rest of our time in Tokyo. I loved the fact that the tour evolved as we saw and did things. She was extremely flexible when we needed to go slower or have a rest period. She teaches Japanese and taught my husband a few useful pHrases. I highly recommend her tours.
