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.

what an amazing day we had with Dai. Being of some what in our advanced years Dai was very considerate of this. He was able to answer any questions we put to him. Dai took us to a wonderful restraunt for lunch. I would highly recommend Dai as your guide for Tokyo.
Thank you so much for a thoughtful review, Nola. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo as your guide. I had a lot of FUN being able to talk with all of you, especially your super JOYFUL brother. I hope you will return safely to Australia. And please give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!! Cheers !!!
Dai was wonderful during on our customized tour to Tokyo. During the tour we went to Toyota Mega Web, Imperial Palace, Tsukiji fish market, Ueno Garden, and Sensoji Temple. Dai was early to pick us up at the hotel, even though he was sick he provided so much information about Japan and their culture. I wish Dai was available for more dates to provide tours during our stay. Great tour guide!
Thank you so much for a prompt feedback, Trisha. It was my great pleasure to tour around Tokyo as your guide. I really appreciate your kindness and cooperation during the tour. I hope you will have amazing days in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your wonderful family. Thanks a million !!!
We spent our first full day in Tokyo with Dai. Prior to our trip he was very helpful putting together an itinerary that would allow us to experience the popular areas and get oriented to the city. 1. Imperial Palace Nijubashi Bridge 2. Shibuya Crossing 3. Meiji Jingu Shrine 4. Akihabara 5. Asakusa - Sensoji Temple and Nakamise Shopping Street (and the hedgehog and owl cafe our daughter wanted to visit) 6. Harajuku - Takeshita Street We covered all of these areas in a wonderful whirlwind of a day. At each stop he gave us background and traditions that made the experience richer and more memorable. He left us with lots of tips to make our following days easier as well. Highly, highly recommend Dai as a guide.
Thank you so much for giving me such a considerate review, Ken-san. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo as your guide. I was super happy to be able to see your daughter's smile at hedgehog & owl cafe in Akihabara and your son's smile enjoying Sushi at a restaurant in Asakusa. I hope all of you will have another wonderful time in Tokyo and Kyoto. Please give my best regards to your amazing family. Thanks a million !!!
Our family of four had an amazing time touring with Dai. He is very knowledgable and kept our two teenage girls attention for 8 hours, which is no easy task. Such a great Tokyo highlight tour with a mix of traditional and new; from Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, teenage girl couture to all things kawaii. The culinary sites at Tsukiji outer market whetted our pallets; grilled tuna, eel and scallop snacks, white strawberries and custard mochi. We even had a delicious ramen stop to rest our jet lagged bodies. Dai kept us on task navigating the metro with such efficiency to pack in as much as we could. We would have never seen as much as we did without him. Thank you for a memorable day!
Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a thoughtful review, Kristina. I also had an amazing time with all of you. And I was so happy to be able to see you guys enjoyed the food tasting at Tsukiji Outer Market and also all of you enjoyed viewing cherry blossoms at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. I hope you will have wonderful days in Kyoto as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your awesome family. Thanks a million !!!
I booked Dai for two tours while in Tokyo. He knows his city very well. Took me to all the places I wanted to see and was really easy to talk to. He's traveled all over the world, so he knows a lot about traveling. He's also very good at navigating the subway in Tokyo, so you can mover really quickly through the city and cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. If you only have a few hours to see some of Tokyo, he's the guy to hire!
Thank you so much for giving me a considerate review, Don. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo for both two days. It was super fun to talk and share a fun time with you. I hope to see you again sometime soon. Thanks a million !!! Keep on traveling !!! Always be challenging !!!
