“ 1 day tour of Tokyo ”

1-day walking, subway tour of Tokyo major sites: 1. Imperial Palace Nijubashi Bridge 2. Tsukiji Outer Market 3. Asakusa - Sensoji Temple and Nakamise Shopping Street 4. Meiji Jingu Shrine 5. Ueno Park 6. Shibuya - Scramble Crossing Before the tour, Dai proposed some very interesting tour stops, and made some changes for my preferences. He met me at a convenient train station and we proceeded on our tour. Dai is able to provide excellent information about Japan, Tokyo and the tour stops. I do not speak Japanese, and Dai's English is excellent. During the tour, he helped as my photographer and provided food and shopping advice. I would recommend Dai for others looking for Tokyo tours.

“ All The Tokyo Hot Spots ”

Dai was an absolute joy to have as our tour guide. His knowledge of the city and Japanese culture overall was incredible to learn from. We were able to see all the areas and sites we wanted to, but also had plenty of time to enjoy each location. I highly recommend Dai to any future travellers to Tokyo who want to see this great city, but more importantly the histoy and culture of the city.


Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful review, Andrew. It was super fun to share the time and talk with two of you. Also, I was happy to be able to see you guys enjoyed Soba ( buckwheat noodles ) in Akihabara. I hope this tour ( understanding the city ) will be useful for your work of Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your colleague Shannon. Thanks a million !!!
