Hi, I’m Rachel

I’ve lived in Tokyo for 19 years

I speak English and some Spanish, Japanese

I am teaching/coaching


Hello! I'm Rachel, your Tokyo companion with an eye for the arts and a heart for the city's vibrant culinary scene. Tokyo's eclectic blend of architecture, from its time-honored traditions to futuristic marvels, never ceases to amaze me. A day in Tokyo for me? Admiring the latest exhibit in a contemporary gallery or soaking in the tranquility of a hidden garden. If you're seeking the soul of Tokyo, I can guide you through Ueno's and Minato's nooks and crannies. Whether it's a unique creative workshop, a quaint old-city bookshop, or just a lovely spot to relax, let's explore Tokyo's magic together!
