Meguro, Tokyo, Japan

Thank you for choosing Japan as your holiday destination!

I am Japanese born and bred but have spent happy years in Canada and the UK. When I came back to Japan in 2011, I realized how exciting my own country was. I'm still discovering Tokyo myself and it's so exciting when I found new spots, interesting episodes, or delicious local snacks. I can't wait to share these with you.

I like hiking, traveling, eating, drinking, exploring, and most importantly, interacting with people so guiding is a perfect job for me. I would like to take you to all the must-see places, such as Sensoji Temple, and Meiji Jingu Shrine. I would also like to take you to less known places, such as Fukagawa for watching a dramatic Buddhist fire ritual. There are so many things to offer.

I am looking forward to showing you around.

A Recent Review of this guide

My experience with Maddy was great! She was very knowledgeable on Japanese culture. She was fun, flexible, kind and respectful. She made sure I had a good time on every place we visited and took the time and patience to take pictures of the journey :) I highly recommend Maddy for anyone looking for an experienced tour guide in Tokyo! 5 stars :)
