“ Two wonderful days with Dai in Tokyo ”

Four of us from California had 2 fantastic days touring around with Dai. He speaks perfect English, knows Tokyo thoroughly and how to get around most efficiently and creates an interesting and enjoyable itinerary. He was anxious to educate us on religious customs and aspects of Japanese culture. And what an amazing world traveler is Dia! He is an especially kind, polite and giving person and we were very lucky to have spent the two days with him.

Dai:

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a considerate review, Joel. It was absolutely my great pleasure to have showed you around Tokyo for both two days. It was super FUN to talk and share the time with all of you. I hope you will have another wonderful and memorable days in Kyoto, Okayama, Hiroshima and Hakone as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!!

“ Wonderful first time visit to Tokyo ”

We (2 couples) had a wonderful day with Dai. He is very knowledgeable about Japanese culture and customs, and knows Tokyo and how to navigate it very well. He is nice, calm, personable, and a pleasure to be with. In addition he speaks English pretty well. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Tokyo, and look forward to coming back and spending more time in the city.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me a prompt feedback, Esther. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo as your guide. I also had a wonderful time with all of you. I really appreciate your kindness and cooperation during the tour. I hope you will have a nice flight back to the States. Please come back to Japan again, maybe in April to see cherry blossoms. Take good care of yourself and please give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!!

“ Excellent guide ”

Although it was heavy rain on the day (and Dai did warn us beforehand) he still worked with us to make an alternative plan to see indoor sites. Very cool dude.

Dai:

Thank you so much for a thoughtful review, Rob. Unfortunately it was heavy rain during the tour, but I tried my best. I believe you could enjoy watching Rugby World Cup Games at the stadium. Please come back to Japan again in the future and give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!! Cheers !!!
