About

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.

“ Family experience ”

We had a great day with Dai! We only had one day to explore Tokyo and we spent a full day exploring with Dai’s expertise! He knows the subway system like the back of his hand and we couldn’t have navigated Tokyo without him!

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful review, Shawna. I also had a great day with all of you. I was so happy to be able to see you guys enjoying various seafoods at Tsukiji Outer Market. You didn’t have much time in Japan this time, so please come back soon and next time I would love to show you around Tokyo more. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your wonderful family. Have a nice flight back to the States ! Thanks a million !!!
