Hi, my name is Tak.

I have seen travelers.
And, I found they got tired of typical sightseeing spots, like crowded temples and shrines.

There must be spots fit to your feeling and interests, more in Japan.
Then, I’d like to propose.
Why don’t you start unique and original tour, only your hearts bring to yourselves?
.

I had guided
Pokemon tour
Ghost story tour
Live house tour
Bento (lunchbox) tour
Textile tour
Papermaking tour
I’ll search the site you want to see and create your unique itinerary.

First, could you give your message about things you want to do and see in Japan?
Let’s make great time you can’t never forget.

Thank you so much.

I live in SHITAMACHI, Tokyo, or old residential town near ASAKUSA and UENO. My hobby is strolling and I walk about this area almost every day. I know even the smallest path, big and small museums, workshops of artisans, an impressive view of gigantic tree, a beer bar in an impressive old house, unique souvenir shops, cats living in Yanaka and many, many other attractive spots in this area.

You can expect a day that nobody read in guide books.
So!
I hope you name me as the navigator of your fantastic memory-making-tour!!!!

I’m 61-year-old and I still love rock’n roll music. If you want to enjoy live music in Tokyo, I can also arrange the location and occasion according to your mood and boom. read more

“ Going around with Tak! ”

Tak was very helpful in giving us some tips when we were planning on our itinerary. He was also flexible when we changed our mind the last minute regarding our tour, he gladly obliged. That was nice of him. We enjoyed his company.

“ Tak was great ”

Tak helped us book our Shinkansen tickets and gave us a lesson on the Tokyo subways ( we are very tech ignorant) and was more than happy to answer any questions and discuss any topic we brought up. The best was when we had issues with our suica card he offered to come to our hotel to help ( this was the day after our tour with him)

“ Took us to some offbeat places ”

We loved that Tak took us around to some local places that were not as touristy, in addition to the tourist places. He did a wonderful job creating an agenda for us.

“ Ginza Shopping and Music and Dancing at Ginza Kentos ”

Tak and I communicated a lot about the things I am interested in, specifically the type of music I like. He searched for live music venues that fit my taste. We found Kentos in Ginza. After doing some CD shopping and seeing the food areas of the Mitsukoshi department store, we made it to Kentos. It exceeded our expectations. It was a fun night of music and dancing. It was great!

“ Tokyo tour ”

Tak was very nice. Communicated with us constantly regarding our tour, giving us suggestions when thw forecast for the day of our tour was rain. It was indeed raining, which we hated coz it was hard to move around the city and it was freezing cold. He tried to give us historic information regarding the sites. And gave us rise crackers as gift. I wish we could have had the tour when it was sunny. We could have enjoyed it better then.

“ A great guy, very accommodative to our needs and resourceful ”

We had asked for a tour of somewhere in Tokyo combining a little cultural and especially a Pokemon Go tour for our kids. Tak went out of his way to find different locations and also brought in a Pokemon go specialist to help. It was great and the kids especially had a fab time.
