There must be spots fit to your feeling and interests, more in Japan.
Then, I’d like to propose.
Why don’t you start unique and original tour, only your hearts bring to yourselves?
.

I had guided

I’ll search the site you want to see and create your unique itinerary.

First, could you give your message about things you want to do and see in Japan?
Let’s make great time you can’t never forget.

Thank you so much.

I live in SHITAMACHI, Tokyo, or old residential town near ASAKUSA and UENO. My hobby is strolling and I walk about this area almost every day. I know even the smallest path, big and small museums, workshops of artisans, an impressive view of gigantic tree, a beer bar in an impressive old house, unique souvenir shops, cats living in Yanaka and many, many other attractive spots in this area.

You can expect a day that nobody read in guide books.
So!
I hope you name me as the navigator of your fantastic memory-making-tour!!!!

I’m 61-year-old and I still love rock’n roll music. If you want to enjoy live music in Tokyo, I can also arrange the location and occasion according to your mood and boom. read more

“ Wonderful Day ”

Tak was fantastic. He worked with us before our trip to plan our day and offered great suggestions. Communication was throughout our planning and our day. For the day of the tour, he met us at our hotel and showed us how to use the subway system. He provided interesting facts, taught us easy ways to remember some key Japanese worlds and has a thorough knowledge of Tokyo and it’s history. He’s also quite funny. We has a lot of fun spending our first day in Tokyo with him. We highly recommend Tak as a guide to show you around the city.

“ It was a nice experience ”

It was nice meeting Tak, he’s very friendly and an easy going person. Our first meeting day was somewhat unplanned and a bit complicated, but on the second day, he was able to prepare my itinerary and made it convenient for us to move around to many places through subway. I wanted to book him again after our second meeting but It was unfortunate that he didn’t have enough time to join me on the third day due to new year activities Thank you very much Tak for your kind assistance and I hope to meeting you again.

“ Outstanding ”

Tak-san is an awesome guide who communicated in details with me before my tour. He placed a lot of effort into finding out the places in the theme of my tour and sending me the pics. We went through the highly complicated Tokyo subway system and ate the best soba I ever tasted in my life. He comes highly recommended as he will follow through with your theme of the tour. You must also have a very clear idea of what you want to see. His page lists the themed tours he did and that's why I choose him as a guide. It was a great experience!

Tak was very helpful in giving us some tips when we were planning on our itinerary. He was also flexible when we changed our mind the last minute regarding our tour, he gladly obliged. That was nice of him. We enjoyed his company.

“ Tak was great ”

Tak helped us book our Shinkansen tickets and gave us a lesson on the Tokyo subways ( we are very tech ignorant) and was more than happy to answer any questions and discuss any topic we brought up. The best was when we had issues with our suica card he offered to come to our hotel to help ( this was the day after our tour with him)
