Hi, I'm a national licensed tour guide for foreign visitors.

I really love to travel. I've been backpacking around the world for the last 16 years.
I've been to more than 150 countries worldwide.
I'm proud of my traveling skills, flexibility and patience I've ever got through my journeys.
I believe the most important thing for travelers is " Experience ", like doing something new, doing something extraordinary and doing something you've never done before.

And I used to work at hostel in Asakusa, so I'm quite familiar with Asakusa area.

I'd like to help foreign tourists enjoy their stay in Japan.
You can also arrange your own itinerary, please feel free to ask me anything.
I'm looking forward to seeing YOU. Thank YOU. read more

“ Most friendly and knowledgeable guide ”

My overall experience being guided by Dai in Tokyo was excellent. He arrived on time and even though we had a agreed to an itinerary, Dai was very flexible and customize as we went along. He covered all of the important areas of Tokyo and was amazed at his in depth knowledge of each area or site we visited. Very personable with a very helpful, warm and friendly manner, it was a pleasure learning about Tokyo and it's history from him. I would definitely recommend using Dai as your guide when visiting Tokyo.

“ Ueno and Asakusa Tour ”

We had a long walking tour of the Ueno and Asakusa areas including Ueno Park and the Sensou-ji Temple. I appreciated Dai's information about the etiquette for temples and shrines.
