My grandmother was a true master of traditional Japanese practices such as kimono, tea ceremony, flower arrangement, and playing the koto. My father's side also ran a successful Japanese restaurant. Growing up in these traditional surroundings has developed a burning passion for all things Japanese; the culture, spirit, food, nature, and aesthetic sense - all of which make me excited!
Japan is a country with many unique and mysterious aspects - its culture, customs, and language can even be difficult for the natives to grasp let alone foreigners. My mission is to demystify Japan and educate all those interested by exposing the real side of my country and by sharing knowledge that goes beyond guidebooks, YouTube, or Wikipedia.
Having lived and breathed Japan for all my life, you can rest assured that your next booking with me will be authentic and special. If you have any questions about me, my tours, or Japan then feel free to contact me!
A Recent Review of this guide
We loved this tour! Satoko was confident and fun as she guided our family through cool shopping districts, restaurants and points of interest. My teenagers especially had a great time talking about the young culture, fashion and food. I would highly recommend Satoko for any tour!
