I am a 25 year old nationally licensed tour guide :)
I have guided over 200 tourists for the past year, as a guide of the bar hopping tours, hidden gems tours, and privately booked tours. "Tokyo Hidden Gems", a community I made has now 440 members.
I have been fortunate enough to have opportunities to visit 33 out of 47 prefectures in Japan since I was a child, thanks to my parents who are passionate travelers, which has raised my interests in traveling and let me work in the tourism industry after graduation. I have experiences of working at a stylish hostel, and at the largest travel agency in Japan.
As one of the youngest tour guide, I can show you not only historical spots but also “stylish” spots based on the “subculture” of ordinary young Japanese people. (I love art, design, fashion, vintage clothings, taking pictures, and coffee!)
Like cafes, vintage clothes stores, and some “secret” local spots that normal tourists could never find out.
If you’re interested in traveling throughout Japan as well, please feel free to let me know!
Yes! If you need to make changes such as removing or adding someone to your booking or changing the date or time of your tour, contact us by phone or email
After you secure your booking, the starting and ending points of your tour can be customized to your convenience (ex.: your hotel, nearby stations, etc.). Don't worry, we will take care of you! Some tours may have an extra fee for this service, make sure to check the tour page.
After booking a tour, the guide will accept (or decline) your booking within 24 hours. Then you will be noticed by email from Triplelights.
The price is charged per group. Which means that you make a one-time payment for your entire group and the price will not change if it is less or more people.
Some guides accept extra people (more than the specified number) for an extra charge. Please check for the extras on the tour or booking page, or contact your guide directly to clarify.
No. Your tour is private, only for you and your family or friends, there will be no other group of tourists together in your tour.
Yes, but there will be additional charge for that and it is not by car. The guide will go pick you up using public transportations. For further details, please contact your guide directly.
Yes, you can and you may be able to get a discount if you are traveling alone. Price depends on which guide you choose.
Ai was an amazing tour guide. She came well prepared with a detailed itinerary and was very knowledgeable about everything i asked. At the same time, she was very flexible in accommodating quick detours of other things i wanted to see along the way! An excellent photographer as well so I was able to capture myself on the trip. Though she's young, she knows her stuff. I would highly recommend Ai to take you around Japan!
Thank you so much for choosing me as your guide! It was my pleasure to show you around. I really enjoyed talking to you too! I hope you’ll have a nice day!
