Hello! I’m Roko, your friendly and open-minded host to the enchanting city of Yokohama. My love for this city is as vast as the stunning view of Yokohama's cityscapes from our romantic gardens and parks that are bejeweled in seasonal blooms. I'm passionate about tasting and sharing the local culinary delights of Yokohama, from scrumptious seafoods to signature ramen, not to mention the charming cafes and delectable sweets. Neighborhoods like Minatomirai and Bashamichi are my playgrounds, where I love to share the hidden gems and stories they hold. As an active member of the Kanagawa Official Guide group and a licensed tour guide, I pride myself on my deep understanding of our city's history and culture, as well as the entirety of Japan's rich heritage. Whether you're looking to soak in the best views of Yokohama's cityscapes, indulge in our tasty local cuisines, or explore the historical depths of Yokohama, I'm here to make your experience unforgettable. Let’s explore the beauty and flavors of Yokohama together!
