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 experienced through my journeys.
I believe one of the most important thing for travelers is " Experience ", like doing something new, doing something extraordinary and doing something you've never done before.

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

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

“ Tokyo in a day ”

We had the best introduction to Tokyo with Dai. He was very informative he helped us with any questions we had as well as showing us the sights we were interested in. We were able to customise or tour to give us a good insight in Tokyo’s extensive transportation network. Dai also arranged for us an information pack to help us with the rest of our holiday. There is so much more to see than you think. And his transition of English is very clear. As he is a experienced traveler We found him to be Very organized, knowledgeable, courteous And a great travel guide

“ Unique experience with thoughtful guide ”

Our day tour with Dai was a wonderful adventure across Tokyo. He provides insights about culture, history and life in this amazing city. He plans a tour that makes the city inviting and manageable built around your interests. Dai is very efficient and effective in blending time with travel as you move from sight to sight. Because of his extensive travel experience he is sensitive to concerns or questions that another guides might not think of discussing. Dai brings his own enjoyment of travel to his tour. If you want a fun and interesting tour then your guide should be Dai.

“ Wonderful Day with Dai! ”

Dai was a great guide, I would recommend him to anyone visiting Tokyo/Japan. He met us at our hotel our first morning and planned out a wonderful day for us! He showed us how to use the subway which was very helpful and definitely the easiest way to get around Tokyo. We used the train the rest of our 10 day stay! We visited the fish market, Imperial Palace, Electric Town, Ginza area and Senso Temple. He did a great job answering all of our questions and has traveled the world himself and had a ton of knowledge about various topics. I would highly recommend starting out your trip with a day with Dai! Tokyo is huge and we covered a ton with Dai in just 1 day. He also was able to give us suggestions for our remaining days in Tokyo. The day we spent with Dai was one of the best of the trip!

“ Enjoyable Tour ”

We really enjoyed our tour in Tokyo because our tour guide, Dai, was always accommodating to us. He understood our needs and he showed his flexibility in guiding us. He even taught us how to buy train tickets from the ticket vending machine. He can speak english fairly well. He brought us to good restaurants which offered delicious food with resonable prices. We highly recommend Dai to our friends who want to tour Tokyo.
