I was born and raised in Tokyo. I like travelling very much and have been to lots of countries, strolling by myself, looking for something new which excited and inspired me a lot. So I prefer exploring by myself, not on a tour. However, in some countries where I couldn't communicate with their language, I kept asking to myself, "What is that?!", glancing at the next table, and "What is this?!", finding myself in a procession of people dressed in traditional costumes. I would wish I had had a friend in that country. From those experiences, I know how exciting it is when you go on a trip to a country with a totally different tradition and culture especially for the first time. I'd like to help you satisfy your curiosity by guiding you to some places from popular tourist spots to hidden jems. I really enjoy exploring with my guests and hope to help create unforgettable memories.

Naoko was wonderful! Her communication and organization before the trip was prompt and extremely thorough. The tour itself was great. Despite some fairly poor weather conditions, she adapted on the fly and we got a great taste of the city in a day. She also had a great knowledge of the city and how to get around, and her efficiency allowed us to do and see a lot in a short time. I would highly recommend Naoko to anyone!
