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
From the beginning when we booked the tour until the end we were treated with great courtesy and everything went wonderfully. Our guide Satoko was wonderful and showed us exactly the Tokyo we wanted to see. The only down side was the rain in the afternoon but we were still able to get around ok. Would highly recommend this tour.
