Get to know the person behind the tour

Nobu H.

Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan

Hi! My name is Nobu and I am a professional and experienced tour guide in Tokyo, Japan.

I have been working as a government-licensed private tour guide since 2007.

Welcome to Tokyo! I have a special passion to make people from all different cultures feel Tokyo is their hometown. I am a friendly and cheerful person and treat my guests as if they were my friends. I know Tokyo from its famous tourist attractions and museums to its off the beaten path neighborhoods, along with the CULTURE and the HISTORY as I am organizing tour-guide association 'Japan Culture Club'.

I can show you things that you won't see on a regular tour bus. And I like to give interesting insights of Tokyoite life, therefore instead of having a monologue-type observation of the city, you will inter into friendly discussion and learn about the country through local eyes.

 
Later in the day when you get thirsty and hungry from exploring I can assist you in finding the best Sake and Japanese food the city has to offer, from the Japanese beer joint, as well as the fanciest restaurants.

I am used to working with smaller groups so I offer very personal service always according to my guest's interests and wishes. Areas to be visited can be tailored to suit your particular interests.

I am available from 8:00 am - 11 pm, 7 days a week including public holidays at very short notice! We make extensive use of public transport in the vast majority of my walking tours to give you a real feel of what it is like to live in Tokyo.

HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY MY TOURS!

A Recent Review of this guide

Wonderful half day tour with Nobu! He gauged the needs of our mixed age family group perfectly and both the adults and children in our group enjoyed it. Nobu led us perfectly to some great locations we would not have seen our our own and the comments he gave about the places were great. Would thoroughly recommend to other families!
