My name is Koichiro Kimura (please call me Koji!). I've stayed in Southern California for 3 years from 2012 to 2015 and graduated from an American college there. After returning to Japan in 2015, I passed the national exam for tour guide and got a license in the following year. Since then, I've been guiding countless guests from overseas and now I'm registered on major websites for connecting tour guides with tourists such as TripAdvisor, Viator, ToursByLocals, and Triplelights. I love enjoying great time with people and would be truly glad to show you around Tokyo by sharing my knowledge and experiences as a professional guide and also as a local. I'm more than happy to introduce you to hidden gems, authentic restaurants, and bars in Tokyo (Tokyo has the best food!).
I'd like to guide you as my real friend and will offer sheer hospitality and friendship to you so that you can truly value the moments in Tokyo. Every time I stayed abroad, I was welcomed and helped by the local people there. As a result, the memories of the time I spent with them have become the integral part of myself. I believe that making friendship and great moments with people with different backgrounds together would be the most inspirational, treasurable experience in our lives.
I'll explain Japanese things through the eyes of local Japanese so that you can have clearer ideas on what they really are and the Japanese way of thinking.
I can draw up your original travel plan and am always flexible to your request, so please feel free to message me for any questions/suggestions!
