About us

Onigiri is Japan's true staple food- the rice ball.  It has a wide selection of toppings and widely enjoyed by everyone.  So in the same way, Onigiri Travel offers you a wide selection of tours for you, and hopes that you will enjoy them just as much.


My name is Yasuko, but my friends call me Yakko for short. I am an English-speaking guide fully licenced by the Japanese Gorvernment.  I was born and raised in Japan, and have lived in Tokyo for 19 years.  In college, I majored in English literature, and love international relations, having traveled to many countries (over 20, to be precise). I know a great deal about Tokyo spots and restaurants... some of my favorites are Asakusa, Harajuku, Shinjuku and Meguro. My favorite hobbies include cycling, and watching baseball games and Sumo matches.  I am passionate about various aspects of Japanese traditional culture, especially Kimono (traditional clothing), of course Sake (traditional Japanese rice wine)!!

I am also a staff member of Tokyo Great Cycling tour.
