About me

I'm Moé, originally from Tokyo, Japan who fell in love with London. As a professional photographer and a real walk lover, I've discovered quite few spots for memorable photographs around London. If we could walk around London together, I would capture the wonderful moments during the walk for you to take home. You can share your memories with your loved ones and it would be the best souvenir for yourself!!! Museums and galleries are my cup of tea :) If you like to explore art in London, I could take you to get inspired. Lastly, please ask me if you're craving for authentic Japanese food or want to learn real sushi making skills in London... Of course, I know where to go!

My most exciting things to do in London

I'm a quirky half-Japanese, half-Mexican mum to a 1 year old, adorable little monster that keeps me on my toes. I've lived in London for 23 years but have also lived in Mexico, Japan and Spain. London for me is one of the most exciting cities as it breeds some of the most creative minds in the world and constantly surprises us with new things to see and experience. I have many friends that live abroad and when they visit I want them to see the city beyond the post-card London so that they also fall in love with this incredible city. Book me so I can take you on relaxed walking explorations of the city, or if you want to find baby-friendly, interesting things to do in town that are not the usual "themed" restaurants or playgrounds. I also know the alternative area of Brixton very well so if you want to discover one of London's coolest neighbourhoods that not many tourists know about then I'm your Local!

Before moving to London I lived in Japan for 18 years and travelled extensively in Asia, teaching Italian language and culture and studying anthropology. I loved Asia, but I moved to London because it was my dream to live here. I have visited London many times between university and now, the serene atmosphere of the parks in contrast with the urban environment always gets me in a wonderful mood. In London I'm in the museums every week and I love checking out the new exhibitions and trends in the weekend markets. The Victoria and Albert Museum is my favourite one for the extensive collection of Japanese, Korean and Chinese art. Soho is great for vinyls and a coffee, and South Kensington for the art and just strolling around. I'm also a vegetarian, so I’m always on the look-out for the best shops or restaurants for a special recipes, dishes and ideas.

My name is Holly and I'm an actress and musician. Music and theatre are my two main passions and my work takes me to the best dive bars, pub theatres, hidden gems of converted spaces, famous buildings and arenas all over the city. If you want to explore the trendiest neighbourhoods in London and discover the music and artistic scene of the city, from jazz, to rock and opera, I would love to show you around. I know Shoreditch and East London very well and I would be great company on an unscripted walk-around the area.
