About Akio Tanaka

Akio Tanaka

Hi, I am Aki, an English-speaking national government-licensed guide living in Yokohama, Japan.

I was born and raised in Kagawa prefecture in western Japan, facing the beautiful Seto Inland Sea. After graduating from a university, I worked for a global electronics company in Tokyo for 30 years and retired early. Working with foreign colleagues gave me fantastic opportunities to learn about Japan from their points of view.

I love traveling. I have visited many places throughout Japan, amazed by its beautiful nature, great tradition, and fabulous food.
I realized Japan has numerous tourist attractions. Then I became a tour guide, hoping to entertain foreign visitors with my tours based on my experiences as a tourist.

I have lived in Yokohama and Kamakura areas for about 40 years. I know Tokyo, Yokohama, and the neighboring regions very well.
I love food, nature, culture, and architecture. I value the genuineness of what to see, experience, taste, and buy, which cannot always be experienced in a group tour.

Participating in my guided tour will bring you much fun. I can help you explore Japan deeper and get in touch with the locals, taking you to popular spots and unbeaten sites where you can see the people's daily lives.

Let us share the joy of touring this lovely country.
Thank you, and see you in Japan!
