Private tour guide Satoko

Satoko U.

Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan

My name is Satoko. I have a very distinct family lineage, with my mother's side dating back to the ancient Samurai.

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

Satoko was very friendly and she catered the tour to what I wanted to experience in Tokyo. She was knowledgeable about the city and the sites we visited, and she went the extra mile at the end of our by helping us find a good place to eat, as well as providing clear directions on how to get there.
