“ Metro Master! ”

Dai showed us around Tokyo for our first time in the city. He’s amazing at getting around, allowing us to see as much as possible in one day. We flowed thru the metro stations with such ease. He knows his city well and was very flexible with our group of four when we wanted to make detours for coffee and shopping. Dai is a wealth of subtle knowledge. Your visit to Japan will be enhanced by spending time with him.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful review, Melissa. It was a super fun time to talk and hang around the city with all of you. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. I hope you will have amazing days in Hakone and Kyoto as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!!

“ 1 Day Customized Tour to Tokyo ”

Dai was wonderful during on our customized tour to Tokyo. During the tour we went to Toyota Mega Web, Imperial Palace, Tsukiji fish market, Ueno Garden, and Sensoji Temple. Dai was early to pick us up at the hotel, even though he was sick he provided so much information about Japan and their culture. I wish Dai was available for more dates to provide tours during our stay. Great tour guide!

Dai:

“ Phenomenal guide, wonderful to experience through his lens ”

We spent our first full day in Tokyo with Dai. Prior to our trip he was very helpful putting together an itinerary that would allow us to experience the popular areas and get oriented to the city. 1. Imperial Palace Nijubashi Bridge 2. Shibuya Crossing 3. Meiji Jingu Shrine 4. Akihabara 5. Asakusa - Sensoji Temple and Nakamise Shopping Street (and the hedgehog and owl cafe our daughter wanted to visit) 6. Harajuku - Takeshita Street We covered all of these areas in a wonderful whirlwind of a day. At each stop he gave us background and traditions that made the experience richer and more memorable. He left us with lots of tips to make our following days easier as well. Highly, highly recommend Dai as a guide.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a considerate review, Ken-san. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo as your guide. I was super happy to be able to see your daughter's smile at hedgehog & owl cafe in Akihabara and your son's smile enjoying Sushi at a restaurant in Asakusa. I hope all of you will have another wonderful time in Tokyo and Kyoto. Please give my best regards to your amazing family. Thanks a million !!!
