It's a pleasure knowing that I can help people enjoy Japan in a way that also introduces its history in a meaningful and hopefully unforgettable way. So please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at all.

    Such a great time with Satoko!

    We had such a great time touring Golden Gai with Satoko! We went to several different bars and got to try some great Japanese food as well. Satoko also gave us plenty of recommendations for restaurants and things to do in other cities as well. Highly recommend this tour.

    Awesome night in Golden Gai

    Satoke is so much fun. In a town where it is very difficult to get around in as a forefinger, Satoke makes it easy and is a pleasure to be with!

    Was very informative and my host was great!

    My host Yoshiko was very nice person. We started off the tour in Shinjuku by the main square. She immediately started giving me facts and tips of places to go. We walked over to Piss Alley where she pointed out her preferred Yakitori places. After that walked through the Red Light district were she pointed out some funny places to me. We had some laughs. Last we hit up the golden gai. She pointed out her favorite bar which was not open that night. By this time me feet were hurting so I offered to buy her a drink and we sat and talked at a bar. We had such a good time together that we actually exchanged info and met another night to hang out socially were she took me to a all Japanese bar in the golden gai that I would have never found on my own. She's a great host!

    Great Experience!

    My husband and I had a great time with Satoko exploring Golden Gai. We went to three very different (and tiny!) bars and learned a lot about the different areas and the history of the neighborhoods. It was wonderful getting the chance to have drinks with local and meet some other locals in the process. Highly recommend!

    Perfect discovery of Golden Gai

    Satoko is a great guide. We went to Kabuki-cho then to some bars in Golden Gai. I felt welcome in the bars even I don't speak Japanese. Satoko is a great person and she is very interesting to chat with.
    It's a nice discovery of Golden Gai, very recommended.

    This was a big highlight in my trip!

    Thank you Satoko for everything!!

    She is an interesting, funny and smart person. I enjoyed the tour itself as much as I enjoyed talking and having a drink with her. She knows a lot about the city, and would definitely recommend this tour. Make sure you also check her other tours!
