“ Two day tour of Tokyo ”
Can't say enough good things about this guy. We spent two days together traveling around Tokyo. Meeting up with him was easy as Dai met me at the train station closest to where I was staying. Communication prior to the tour was good too. We explored all the Tokyo hot spots and enjoyed lots of good food. Dai is also a great conversationalist as he has had many world travel experiences. Dai, thanks for helping me have a great trip!
