Private tour guide Noriko

Noriko K.

Tsu-city, Mie prefecture, Japan

Hello! I am Noriko, a licensed, English, national tour guide!

I was born and grew up in Tsu-city, the capital city of Mie prefecture near Nagoya, Osaka and Kyoto.
After getting married, I moved to Tokyo area, and lived there for more than 30 years.
But four years ago, I returned to Tsu-city because of my husband's retirement.
Tsu-city is our hometown:)

Now, I am Grandma for 5-month baby girl.
My hobby is traveling inside and outside of Japan, gardening and enjoying food, wine and sake, etc.

Mie pref. is a quiet place, and famous for good food including Matsusaka beef, fresh seafood, etc.
I would like to show my place as a professional tour guide.
And also, I would like to talk a lot about Japan, its culture as well as daily Japanese life.

I would be happy to tailor the tour that will help you find something new to share with your family and friends.

Thank you for reading!
