Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan

Hi! I'm Yoshi. I have been guiding visitors to Tokyo area for almost one year as a professional licensed guide.

I am proud that all of the customers so far have given me five star ratings. This is simply because I love to meet people and give memorable experience.

Since I was born in Tokyo, near Asakusa, the famous tourist spot, and I now live in Yokohama, I am very familiar with most of sightseeing spots and attractions of Tokyo and Kanagawa area.

I am an ex-CEO of an internet company, dealing business with foreign companies of all of the world. And I also travel a lot to many places, therefore, I know your country and culture. I can explain Japanese culture, by comparing them with yours.

I used to live in California in the United States, as a graduate student at UCLA and Stanford University, so I speak natural American English.

Of course, I can guide you to the popular spots, like Asakusa, the Imperial palace, Meiji shrine, Ueno, Yanaka and Odaiba. But also I can take you to some secret places, which nobody knows, like a hidden temple in a dungeon.

Please contact me.

See you soon!


A Recent Review of this guide

We had an awesome day with Yoshi! He arrived at our hotel early. Spent way more than the allocated time with us showing us a good mixture of new and older Tokyo. We learned so much about Tokyo thru Yoshi ... history as well as current trends! We saw so much more in half a day with Yoshi than we possibly could have on our own! Thank you Yoshi from all 5 of us!
