We had a wonderful day and half wih Dai, who suggested a great itinerary for us but was also flexible to accomodate our interests along the way. We didn’t want to do a group tour and wanted to discover Tokyo ourselves and Dai helped us do that and was terrific in explaining customs, differences and “how to navigate” our way around Japan. Thanks Dai for a professional and fun couple of days.
