Inclusions & Exclusions

What‘s included

Guide fee only. Hotel pick-up fee is separate.

What‘s not included

Public Transportation, Food/consumables during break time and other expenses are not included in the original set of fees.

If I am going to pick you up at your hotel directly, that would be a separate 3,000 yen.

Estimates:

Lunch is around 1500 per person.

If we are going around using public transportation such as trains, probably we would spend about 3000-4000 per person if we are going around by trains / bus. We will buy a prepaid SUICA card first before starting the tours.

Professional photos are also available separately as added upgrade or option. Please refer to my other tour packages as well for your reference.

Important

Basically, I run my own schedule and time and you can freely consult with me regarding your plan/s or trip. We can discuss it and always have extra activities as options on hand as well. I can handle up to 10 people and can help arrange for your transportation, logistics and everything else needed to make your trip memorable.

Regarding location limitations, I can always accompany you everywhere you want around Japan as long as you shoulder the transportation, lodging and other expenses and cover for the time for me to meet you and return to my home. I don't set any restrictions as long you can include those costs in your budget. I am more than willing to accompany and guide you wherever you want.

The rates I have provided here are just for my basic services, costs such as lodging, hotel, food, and entrance fees and such shall be borne by the hiring party. I understand that there is a basic round-trip transportation fee charged to the client but if it is shouldered and the time is covered as part of the job, I can always be on the go anywhere within Japan.

My rates vary differently based on the various factors below for your understanding:

1) Number of people to be handled (Additional person/people means additional work and energy for me to handle)
2) Difficulty of the tour concept / contents (if it is just a tour or a tour including/needing my professional photography skills as well - please refer to my tour packages)
3) Day Time and Night Time - I can extend my tour hours to night time or late hours if you need more time and company, but I charge extension/overtime fees as outlined below per hour per group if the time overshoots past 6 pm exceeding from our basic Day Tour agreement. (Sometimes I need to take cab to my house/office in Saitama or even a hotel to stay for the night and this premium rate covers for those costs and expenses)

*** RATES are subject to change without prior notice. For a full quotation for your needs, please do consult and ask beforehand to avoid confusion.

*** PEAK SEASON RATES MAY APPLY during the SPRING SEASON (March-May) and I reserve the right to increase my rates depending on my availability and demand.

All surcharges are to be paid and settled at the end point / end time. So please make sure to bring enough cash in yen to cover for other expenses not covered by the original booking.

------------------ RATES CONCEPT and GROUPINGS Explanation ------------------

A. Basic Rate concept: about $50 (5,000 yen) per person per hour

(This is what you will see being displayed below here but essentially, each tour package that I offer here slightly differs in the rates depending on the contents and difficulty and coverage which I offer them).

Please use this is as a peg rate or reference just in case you wish to book me for customized tours. For simple tours, you can request or book me using this basic rate of about $50 per person per hour then. However, I offer savings and discounts if you book me thru any of my available tour packages which I am have here on my profile.

------------------ Group Concept applies to the current Tour packages I am offering ------------------
*Theoretically for more than 2 persons, I have built-in savings and discounts if you book me using my available tour packages instead.

B. Group concept: I categorize groups per 2 persons. (1-2 persons = 1 group, 3-4 persons = 2 groups, 5-6 persons = 3 groups, etc.) 1 group is up to 2 persons.

Daytime: about $50-$100 per hour per group

Nighttime: about $100 and up~ per hour per group

------------------ EXTENSION / OVERTIME NIGHT TIME RATES ------------------

A: PAST 6 PM til 12 AM MIDNIGHT - (time exceeding past 6 pm if continuing from Day Tours): about $150 per hour per group.

B: PAST MIDNIGHT RATE - (if you book any of my Day or Night Tours and extended til past midnight): $200 per hour per group.

------------------ STARTING POINTS TO ENDING POINTS and OVERTIME COMPUTATIONS ------------------

Time starts the moment I meet you at our agreed meeting point (usually your hotel front lobby) and will end when I return you back to your original destination and pick-up point, unless agreed later in the tour where you want to finish as ending point.

Case Sample:

We may finish the day tour officially at 6 pm for example, but you wanted me to take you home either by train or taxi and we reach your hotel and lobby at 7:15 pm.

Extension rates apply on a 30-MINUTES Basis.

Although actual time is 1 hour and 15 minutes. Surcharge shall be computed as 1 hour and 30 minutes (1.5 units of OVERTIME A Rate of $150 per hour per group) and shall be $150 x 1.5 = $225 per group.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have questions or anything regarding my premium tour guiding services, please do not hesitate to consult with me, I would be happy to answer your inquiries, and/or outline and explain the costs to you if needed.

I look forward to showing the best of Tokyo / Japan to you as the best and premium tour guide there could possible be!

The overall pace may not be that fast compared to regular tours, but surely it will be a sweet one that everybody will cherish and remember doing together.

“ TOKYO AT NIGHT ”

Our family of 6 did a night tour of Tokyo with Ikki a few weeks ago. He was very informative and a fun guide. He took us to all the spots we asked and then some. He gave our kids great advice on where they should come back and hang out in the club area of Tokyo, which they did a few nights later and had a great time. Ikki was really easy gong and knew his stuff so it made for a really great introduction to nightlife in Tokyo. He also gave us lots of tips on things to see on our last few days there and some new ideas we had not thought of. It was nice to see it through a locals eyes. We would definitely book to have Ikki guide us again when we come back and we highly recommend him for both young and older people. Thanks Ikki for a great and memorable tour.

Ikki:

Thanks for entrusting me your stay guys, I felt part of the family gang by the end of the sweet tours we had. I am so happy to have shared my insights, experiences and wisdom with you all. I appreciate your enthusiasm and thus, I was naturally being more expressive as you allowed me to enter your worlds and share that wonderful night full of organismic conversations about socio-cultural movements around the world and the dilemma that Australia is facing right now amidst multi-culturalism and being diverse. Needless to say, I felt lonely heading back home having that "emptiness" when just a while ago we were just all together. I felt connected. And when things just started to become more exciting we had to part ways so it was a sort of a melancholic then. But I am very sure that the plea... read more

“ Knowledgeable, thorough, and extremely friendly ”

Ikki was fantastic. From beginning to end. I could not have imagined a better tour and experience. Ikki covered all of Tokyo in a day's time. Not only did he provide the history of each site, but he also gave us a taste of Tokyo's modern culture. Moreover, he was so nice with a great personality and he became a close friend when it was all said and done. Thank you for everything Ikki. We had an amazing time. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a personal tour.

Ikki:

Thanks for the wonder time as well. Just hang on a bit as I’m still trying to edit some nice pics and will collating them all as the highlights of your Japan vacay blast. Take care of the impending typhoon and all hope you enjoy every moment you spend here. I will be here if you need any assistance all the way !

“ Short Notice for Travel Guide to accompany a Group ”

We arranged a Guided Tour on behalf of our Client who gave us extremely short notice Even though our brief was daunting at first, Ikki jumped in with enthusiasm to make the best of the trip. He met with the Host of the Group to look at options and make to make suggestions. Ikki is well spoken and professional and being a photographer, he can also provide you with photos of the trip.

Ikki:

It was my pleasure making the impossible become possible. The task was daunting but I am happy i was able to make out the best possible scenario out of the given options and tight situation. Please enjoy the photos and I will be sending them all shortly for your viewing pleasure. Until the next time again!
