Hi, I'm Dai. I'm a national licensed tour guide for foreign visitors.

I've been backpacking around the world for the last 16 years.
I've been to more than 150 countries worldwide.
I'm proud of my traveling skills, flexibility and patience I've ever experienced through my world-traveling.
I do believe one of the most important thing for travelers is to " EXPERIENCE ", such as doing something new, something extraordinary and something you've never done before.

And I used to work at a hostel in Asakusa, so I'm quite familiar with Asakusa area.

I'd love to help foreign tourists enjoy their stay in Japan.
You can also arrange your own itinerary as you like, so please feel free to ask me anything.
I'm really looking forward to seeing YOU soon. Thank YOU.

“ 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 !!!

“ Tokyo Sights to See ”

I had asked Dai to create an itinerary which would suit my family of six with four teenagers. He did a great job. Our itinerary included Imperial Palace, Sensoji Temple, and Meiji Jingu Shrine, all great historical sites in Tokyo. Dai gave us great insight into all these historical places we visted. Dai took us shopping for some kitchen knives which my wife had requested. He took us to a halal restaurant for noodles since we were muslim. He took us and our teenagers to Akihabara where the teens ended up experiencing the manga scene as well as going to a cat cafe. We also ended up going to Harajuka and Takeshita Street were the teens had a great time. Finally we went to Shibuya - Scramble Crossing where we were able to take some great pictures from the local Starbucks. We... read more

“ Excellent day in Tokyo ”

We accomplished more in one day with Dai than we could have in 3 days on our own. Traveling with teenagers is not always easy but Dai made sure to create an itinerary that would be fun and engaging for all of us. He was a pleasure to be with and very knowledgeable about all the sites and how best to navigate a busy city. I highly recommend a day or 2 in Tokyo with him!!


Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful review, Vicki. I also had an amazing day with all of you. It was super FUN to talk and share the time with you. I hope your cruise trip all over Japan will be a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE for all of you. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your awesome family. Thanks a million !!! Keep on TRAVELING !!!

“ Brilliant Family Tour of Tokyo ”

Dai was a fantastic tour guide and we had an amazing day with him. He happily adjusted the itinerary to match our interests. We are a family of four with two teenagers and he found attractions to suit us all. He helped us understand travelling on the metro giving us the confidence to use it on our own on the next day. He had fantastic knowledge about the temples and shrines that we wouldn’t have got from a guidebook. Dai took us to a brilliant sushi restaurant and encouraged us to try local foods from street stalls. Thank you Dai!


Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a considerate review, Hazel. I also had an amazing day with all of you. I was so happy to be able to see your children tried local foods at Tsukiji Outer Market and different kinds of Sushi at a restaurant in Asakusa. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your great journeys in Japan. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your awesome family. Thanks a million !!!
