Hello! I am Haruko Saruwatari and a Licensed Tour Guide. I am originally from Fukuoka, south west part of Japan and have lived in Tokyo for more than thirty years.
I had been a stay-at-home mom for long time and after raising two children, I wanted to do something interesting for me and also good for the others.
I think my curiosity towards different cultures and Japanese tradition led me to become a licensed guide.
I provide guided tours to English speaking travelers and provide support to foreign businesses entering Japan market.
My name, Haruko means clear sky child. Maybe because of my name, I am a Hare-onna, which means a women who brings a sunny day. So I named my website Sunny Days in Tokyo! May your stay in Japan be bright and joyful like a sunny day!
