About me

Hi, Im Tomomi who live in Beppu(south part of Japan) and often go to Hiroshima.
You can call me TIMO.

I love Onsen(hotspring). I'm a hot spring master;)
Have you heard about "BEPPU" ?? Beppu is very famous for Onsen in Japan.
I live there and I often drop by Onsen and take a break and refresh. I love to communicate with local people including seniors, kids. We naturally start a conversation and smiling each other:) I would love to show you our town to you.

I love to travel and communicate with foreigners because I am interested in learning something new. Also, I like taking pictures. If I guide you as a TOMODACHI GUIDE, I'll take lots of pictures for you like a paparazzi. :))

  Thats always in my head. I love to explore and experience new things with nice friends.

---- [My favorite local spots in Beppu] ----
1. HAJIME-ZUSHI (sushi)
I would love to introduce a wonderful and cool sushi chef there.
We can enjoy talking at Sushi counter.
2. HEBIN-YU (Hidden Nature Hot spting)
Only locals know it! In the forest, we can take the hot spring with listing the birds singing and trees rustling.
3. MUSHI-YU (steam bath)
Onsen (hot spring) is not just taking bath, but there are sand bath, mad bath and steam bath. Steam bath is my favorite one. The herbal scent makes us relax.

Why don't we make the most of your trip together?:D

---- [From my bucket list] ----
One of my dream is to travel around all over the world!
Hope we can meet in Japan and then meet again in your country;)


Have a wonderful time in Japan!
Hope I can travel with you and enjoy cultural exchange :)
I will show you the part of Japan which you don't know and you might be interested in!


Selamat datang ke Jepang!! I'm a friendly girl who speaks English and just start to learning Indonesian :)

What can I say about Tomomi (Timo) and Haruka? First of all both of them went above and beyond when it came to our tour. I was able to catch an earlier train from Lake Biwako which ended up me reaching Beppu 2 hours earlier than expected. Timo and Haruka were both able to make changes to meet us earlier than planned.

After this tour I went from Skeptical about Beppu (since many Americans describe it as a tourist trap) to falling in love with it. I believe this is due to tourist only seeing what they see in google and instragram and not actually seeing those hidden gems that only locals know about.

My wife and I both enjoyed the many activities that we spent time with Timo and Haruka. They both are great representations of what a great tomodachi guide can be,

Thanks to both of you. I hope to see you soon again


Tomomi, Haruka, and Go offered us an awesome tour of the local "hotspots", including a breathtaking view over the Kannawa area. They know the city in and out and are able to show all kinds of cool places you just can't find during a pre-packaged trip.

If you wish for a refreshingly different tour of Beppu, they can certainly give you that.


Thank you Timo for arranging the Kamakura trip.
I have really enjoyed it, you are the best !!


I had the pleasure of spending the day in Kamakura with Timo and Airi. They were fantastic guides. They made everything simple for me, all I had to do was relax and enjoy myself. They made great recommendations for things to see and do (and eat)! I would highly recommend either or both for a fun-filled day of touring. Thanks again!


It was a stoke of luck meeting Tomomi San. I wanted to climb Mt. Takao but i could not find a guide. Tour companies were too expensive and did not cater for solo trippers.

Together with Tomomi San & Catharina San. We climbed the Mt. Takao. Had a Japanese Summer drink at the summit. Learnt alot of japanese history from Catharina San. Tomomi San brought us to eat the best Soba at the end of the day.

It was a good day. The tour was reasonably priced and flexible. They were loads of fun. Most importantly it was like trekking with friends rather than tour guides. :)
