We had the best introduction to Tokyo with Dai. He was very informative he helped us with any questions we had as well as showing us the sights we were interested in.

There is so much more to see than you think. And his transition of English is very clear.

“ Unique experience with thoughtful guide ”

Our day tour with Dai was a wonderful adventure across Tokyo. He provides insights about culture, history and life in this amazing city. He plans a tour that makes the city inviting and manageable built around your interests. Dai is very efficient and effective in blending time with travel as you move from sight to sight. Because of his extensive travel experience he is sensitive to concerns or questions that another guides might not think of discussing. Dai brings his own enjoyment of travel to his tour. If you want a fun and interesting tour then your guide should be Dai.

“ Wonderful Day with Dai! ”

Dai was a great guide, I would recommend him to anyone visiting Tokyo/Japan. He met us at our hotel our first morning and planned out a wonderful day for us! He showed us how to use the subway which was very helpful and definitely the easiest way to get around Tokyo. We used the train the rest of our 10 day stay! We visited the fish market, Imperial Palace, Electric Town, Ginza area and Senso Temple. He did a great job answering all of our questions and has traveled the world himself and had a ton of knowledge about various topics. I would highly recommend starting out your trip with a day with Dai! Tokyo is huge and we covered a ton with Dai in just 1 day. He also was able to give us suggestions for our remaining days in Tokyo. The day we spent with Dai was one of the best of the trip!

“ Enjoyable Tour ”

We really enjoyed our tour in Tokyo because our tour guide, Dai, was always accommodating to us. He understood our needs and he showed his flexibility in guiding us. He even taught us how to buy train tickets from the ticket vending machine. He can speak english fairly well. He brought us to good restaurants which offered delicious food with resonable prices. We highly recommend Dai to our friends who want to tour Tokyo.

“ Dai goes above and beyond to help you! Great Tour Guide! ”

It was a rainy day during our tour with Dai, but that didnt stop us from having a good time! Dai is flexible, fun, patient. knowledgeable, and friendly. During the tour, he was able to adapt to any changes - whether we wanted a quick bite to eat or spend extra time at store - we never felt rushed. oh, and his english is superb! What impressed me the most about Dai is his helpfulness outside of the actual tour. I had communicated with Dai prior to coming to japan and Dai was always prompt when it came to answering any questions! He even tried to help me purchase tickets for the GHIBLI museum (unfortunately, they were still sold out, but thank you for trying!). While on the tour, he gave me all these flyers for different activities, maps, etc etc - that were extremely helpful during my stay in japan! From Our Group -- THANK YOU DAI for a fun time in TOKYO!

“ Wonderful Tour of Tokyo Highlights ”

Hi, Our family of 5 had a day tour of Tokyo with Dai. He put together an itinerary based on our interests and was flexible in altering it according to our requests. He showed us places we would never have found on our own. We saw much more of the city than we ever could have on our own. We packed in so much in 8 hours. Everyone really liked Dai. He was kind, patient, interesting and polite. He paced the tour well and told us great stories! He also made recommendations for our days before and after the tour which were much appreciated. The highlight of our time in Japan was the sushi we had with Dai at the Tsukiji Market. We love sushi and he took us to a place that served excellent sushi and sake for a great price. Thanks to Dai, our family had a terrific time in Tokyo!

“ A fascinating introduction to Tokyo culture. ”

After contacting Dai by email, Dai organised a tour that suited our interests. He came to our hotel and took us by the rail system to so many different parts of the city including the Tsukiji outer fish market, Ameyoko shopping streets in Ueno, electric town (Akihabara) where we also went to a hedgehog cafe (so cute!), Shibuya crossing, Shinjuku Golden-Gai, and “piss alley” . All in one day. Dai was wonderful company, a lovely guy.

“ A very energetic and knowledgeable guide! ”

Dai-san gave me an eight hour tour of Tokyo. Initially, I only planned to visit Asakusa and Meiji Jingu Shrine. He recommended me Akihabara since I am an anime fan. It was a nice experience. We even went to one of the maid cafes in the area at my suggestion. Dai-san was a bit shy but accompanied me to the cafe anyway! In Asakusa and Meiji Jingu Shrine, Dai-san taught me a lot of Japanese culture. He recommended me to try Asakusa Menchi which is very "oishi"! Dai-san knows the entire city well and was able to accommodate all my needs. I highly recommend his service!

A group of four of us used Dai as our full day tour guide for our first time in Tokyo. He asked what we wanted to see and set up a personal itinerary for us. He not only fully knows the city and recommended some great spots to see, but he is very personable and a well seasoned traveler himself. I would highly recommend his services for any visitor to Tokyo.

“ Terrific guide! ”

Our experience with Dai was outstanding. He is well traveled, flexible, knowledgeable and has excellent English skills. Other than Tsujiki Market we were unsure until that day which other places we would want to visit. It was our last full day in Tokyo and we didn't know what we would have already seen. We discussed it when we got together and planned a great day. Dai accommodated all of our needs and wishes. He even helped us locate our restaurant for dinner so that we could find it on our own that evening. He will go at whatever pace you desire, but if you want someone who can walk quickly, Dai is for you. Highly recommend!

Our tour to Tokyo was a rainy, wet one. Really, relentless rain was poring the two days we were in Tokyo. But all was ggod, with Dai helping us in going around Tokyo. We were able to hit 5 spots in Tokyo, 1 Imperial Gardens, a view of Marunochi, 2 Akihabara, 3 Asakusa with a view of Tokyo Skytree, Asahi Buildings, 4 Meiji Shrine and 5 Harajuku DAI is a very helpful guide, happy, accommodating and walked very fast!

“ A day in Tokyo ”

My wife, son and I began our 6 days in Tokyo with your guide - Dai. Holy smokes what a blast we had. If you are planning a stay in this amazing city you will be wise to begin your time with a full day planned by Dai. Second piece of advice is to arise early and eat a full breakfast because once Dai shows up you will be chasing him the whole day - this energetic man has been to 154 countries and has spent his life in Tokyo which allows his cup to overflow with experiences that are available to you. It would have taken numerous days to retrace our steps of Dai's eight hour tour. His knowledge of the subway system was smooth & efficient not to mention a lesson for our remaining days. Dai has a easy going personality, speaks English well and has a genuine concern for your comfort & enjoyment throughout the day. We very much enjoyed our time with Dai. The Drake's Asheville, NC USA

“ Highly Recommend Dai! Excellent English, Knowledgeable, and Fun! ”

Don’t hesitate to book with Dai! Our family of four (Mom, Dad, two sons ages 18 and 16) hired Dai to show us around our first two days in Tokyo July 24 & 25. We had never been and this was a last minute trip so I felt overwhelmed trying to figure out what to see and do and how to organize sites geographically, transportation, etc. I knew we needed a guide but really wanted to make sure we found the best guide for our family and especially the boys since I wanted them to be engaged in the touring. Dai was perfect for our family! Our communication before and after booking was prompt. Dai has traveled extensively and this has helped him refine his English language skills. He speaks very good English and has a great sense of humor (which sometimes doesn’t translate.) Dai is young enough for our boys to relate to and they had fun sharing stories of Dai’s world travels and interesting (crazy) foods he has tried along the way. I enjoyed seeing my boys talking and bonding with Dai. I left the planning up to Dai and just asked him to show us the best of Tokyo. He divided our days into exploring the East side of Tokyo (Tsukiji fish market, Imerial Palace, Ginza shopping area, Asakusa, Ueno Park) and West side (Tokyo Metro Gov’t building observatory, Meiju Jingu Shrine, Harajuku, Shibuya, Hama Rikyu Gardens, the boat ride over to Odaiba.) We really enjoyed our lunch in Asakusa and appreciated that Dai requested one of the more traditional Japanese tables. We talked about the interesting cafes in Tokyo (dogs, cats, owls, maids, etc. and when he mentioned a hedgehog café, the boys were interested so we made time for a quick stop there as well! We mentioned a specific item we were looking for and helped us try to shop for it. Dai is a master navigator of the Tokyo metro. He led us effortly through many various train stops. We had a very crowded train ride for one stop on our starting mornings but we learned to just shove right in that train with all the other people - all part of the experience! We started at 9AM both days and other than the 9AM quick train ride from our rental apartment to Shibuya and 5PM return trip, most of the trains were not crowded. People move quickly and with a purpose in Tokyo. Dai taught us what side of the escalator to stand on vs. walk on, how to purchase our ticket, etc. Dai was on time both mornings and it was nice that he met us at our apartment to guide us the entire way. I read on some travel sites that you can’t see Tokyo in two days but I don’t agree. Yes, we did a lot of walking and moving around but we all felt we experienced so many areas and neighborhood differences in Tokyo. After our two great days, we wanted to hire Dai for our 3rd or 4th day in Tokyo as well but he was already booked for those dates. I had talked to him about some day trips we were considering and on Day 2, he brought me English language maps and tourist information for those areas and even wrote down the specific train lines, transfers, and costs to get to those places. With Dai’s information and the metro experience we learned from him, we successfully navigated to visit Kamakura on our own. Dai went above and beyond to ensure our family had a good experience. We appreciate having not only a great guide but now a new friend as well! Highly recommend!

We requested Dai at the last minute since we had a stopover in Tokyo and we had never seen the city before. We spent the day walking around all the hotspots, from the Meiji shrine of old Tokyo to Akihabara of the new. He was very knowledgeable of the subway system too, which baffles even the locals.

Dai was really great. My husband and I had one day in Tokyo. We could not have done half the things we did without Dai. He had early access to the fishmarket we alone could not have gotten, and we covered everything I wanted to see and more. He had great and informative commentary and history. He was prompt, efficient, and patient. I will be recommending him to everyone heading that way. As I understand, he does other places besides Tokyo too, so when we head back that way, we will check in with him first.

We wanted to see the highlights of Tokyo in one day and with the extreme friendly support of our guide Dai we were able to see a lot. We started of course with the Tsukiji fish market, amazing place were you can see the biggest Tuna fishes you have ever seen and a whole variety of all other fresh fishes. then we went to Ginza shopping district and Kabukiza theatre. Then Marunouchi for the Imperial palace and huge buildings in the financial district. Also Shibuya with the Takeshita Dori where we lunched in a typically japanese restaurant. After lunch to the most famous crossing Shibuya crossing. And many other things. Dai, our very nice tourguide managed us to travel to all these highlights in a very nice and flexible way and told us evrything we wnated to know about Tokyo and the Japanes culture. He was amazing and we highly recommand him, without Dai we were lost for sure. Thanks again Dai for a beautiful day in Tokyo.

“ Short visit to Tokyo ”

I was travelling on business and had a day spare to explore Tokyo. I chose a few places that I wanted to visit (landmarks, shopping etc) and i was collected and was dropped back at my hotel by Dai. I would not of have much success navigating the metro myself. Dai is well travelled and spoke excellent English and was very knowledgable about Tokyo and the areas we visited. Dai was a lot cheaper than some of the other guides listed. I have told him to up his prices! I throughly enjoyed my custom tour and would recommend 100% to others.
