Hi there! I'm Yayoi, your local host in Tokyo. I'm always seeking new adventures in this vibrant city. From savoring delectable treats in local shopping streets to exploring traditional areas, I find joy in the diverse food experiences Tokyo has to offer. I love immersing myself in art and history. And when I want to reconnect with nature, I head to beautiful places like Abiko City. The abundant natural surroundings and the variety of fruit-picking experiences in Ibaraki make it a memorable retreat. I know the neighborhoods of Tokyo like the back of my hand. I can lead you to serene temples, sacred shrines, and hidden gems in old shopping streets, where you'll experience the heart of Tokyo from the perspective of a local. So, if you're looking for an authentic experience, I'm your go-to. Let's create unforgettable memories together in Tokyo!
