The outgoing nature and zest for life has led me to many wonderful experiences. In pursuit of my own path to guiding I am always working forward to allow myself to show others the places that inspire me.
Originally I come from Moscow, and I have lived in Japan almost a half of my life, so I consider it my adapted home country. Tokyo has been my hometown for 17 years, and I know it like the back of my hand! Having a degree in Hospitality Business and graduating one of the most prestigious Travel Guide Colleges in Tokyo, I know all the museums, sightseeing spots and events held throughout a year all over Japan. I am an expert in travel and I can introduce you a real Japanese experience, I will encourage you to participate in variety of workshops and meet real Japanese people, so you can learn through your own experiece more about their life.
I can offer a very fun day in Tokyo for all styles and pockets. If you like not only culture, nature, history, but also involvement into real life experiences, I'm in! Amazing restaurants that only locals know, beautiful landscapes, all the touristic places and a lot of secret and charming addresses, frequented by the Japanese and all sorts of authentic flavour: my knowledge will help you to make the most of the day and nightlife entertainment, local habits, traditional events, cozy hidden spots run by ancestral traditions where you can try Mom's cooking; all kinds of restaurants, bars, coffee shops and outstanding places to have the most enjoyable time in Tokyo.
Contact me today and we can design a tour of your dreams together! I will make sure that you bring home fantastic memories of your Tokyo experience that will warm you up each time you think of them!
A Recent Review of this guide
I had asked Yulia to design a custom tour for my friend Masahide and I, whom I was visiting in Japan. I also asked that she demonstrate and explain the fundamentals of tour guiding, as Hide had expressed interest in potentially becoming a guide himself. In short, Yulia's performance as both a guide and mentor was beyond reproach. She truly does know Tokyo like the back of her hand. Don't let the fact that she's not a native Japanese person fool you, Yulia is a Master Tour Guide.
