“ 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.

Dai:

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!!

Dai:

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!

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 !!!

“ Tokyo all over ”

Dai certainly knew his way around Tokyo and the Metro. Dai organised a lovely lunch with Sake tasting which was great! Dai accommodated my injured knee with elevators where possible and a chair in the Samurai Museum. We probably were a bit ambitious tackling so much in one day with our physical limitations, It gave us confidence to tackle metro ourselves. Dai also arranged a seat when booking JR Reservations. He also helped us get back to our Hotel as we were very tired. Thankyou Dai you gave us confidence to travel the Metro to explore more of Tokyo. Yes we bought at knife too.

Dai:

Thank you Leonie, for a thoughtful review. Yes, I think so too, it was a little too much visiting and walking in one day with your conditions. I'm so glad to hear that Greg got a Japanese knife. I believe you enjoyed staying in Kanazawa, Hiroshima and Kyoto as well after Tokyo. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to Greg. Thanks a million !!!

“ Yanesen area, Nij?bashi, Nezu Shrine ”

Dai was great! He's an excellent guide who knows a lot about Tokyo (and the Metro system at the back of his hand). He worked with our group to combine a day that combined the VERY different interests of its members. I especially liked how he introduced Nezu Shrine as an historical place, but also as a living place of worship.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a nice review, Patricia. I had a wonderful time with all of you. It was super fun to talk and share the time with you and your talented and hopeful students.

“ Interesting Tokyo walking tour ”

Dai is an excellent tour guide for our family. During our first day arriving in Tokyo, we were running late due to flight delay, but Dai was very kindly rearrange the tour itinerary, welcomed four of us at our hotel and show us how to navigate around Tokyo, one the the busiest city in the world. All of this guidance about local traditions and practice are so valuable for first time travelers to Japan like we are. The tour to Tsukiji fish market is incredible, all the food that Dai introduced to us are of top quality. Our teenage kids enjoy the walk to shopping street for teens as well as local practice to enter a Shinto shrine. We would like to thank Dai for his warm welcome as well as making the very first day of our trip to Tokyo/Japan so enjoyable.

Dai:

Xin Chao ! Thank you so much for giving me such a considerate review, Hang-san. I really appreciate your kindness and cooperation during the tour.

Never having been to Japan, I decided to book a private tour guide for my family of three for our first two days in Tokyo. Fortunately I found Triple Lights on line & chose Dai about guide & we couldn't be more pleased! Dai was organized, knowledgeable, accommodating, helpful, and fun. He knows so much about all things Japan. Learning the subway system with Dai was extremely helpful. We enjoyed each moment and highly recommend Dai to any traveler.

“ Excellent Tokyo tour with Dai ”

My family (wife and two kids 14 and 12) and I had an excellent tour with Dai in Tokyo. We toured two days and he showed us the east and west sides of Tokyo. Dai was very knowledgeable about cultural and historical aspects of Tokyo and Japan. We toured the Tsukiji market and he guided us to fantastic food vendors and selections. We visited several Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines and Dai shared interesting details of the temples/shrines and unique customs of these two religions. We highly recommend Dai as your Tokyo tour guide. Jon Texas

Dai showed us around Tokyo for our first time in the city. He’s amazing at getting around, allowing us to see as much as possible in one day. We flowed thru the metro stations with such ease. He knows his city well and was very flexible with our group of four when we wanted to make detours for coffee and shopping. Dai is a wealth of subtle knowledge. Your visit to Japan will be enhanced by spending time with him.

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!

“ Phenomenal guide, wonderful to experience through his lens ”

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.

“ Excellent Tokyo highlight tour! ”

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!

Dai:

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.

“ Dai is an awsome guide. ”

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 !!!

“ Tokyo Must-See Places As You Like One-Day Tour ”

Dai was a good fit for us. He steered us efficiently to all the sights that he had carefully mapped out for us. At the Meiji Jingu Shrine, we were fortunate to see two wedding processions. Dai introduced us to some local foods that we would probably not have tried on our own. He also assisted us with exchanging the JR vouchers for tickets and he even told the agent to give us seats on the train that would allow us to view Mt Fuji and, happily, we had a very clear view of the mountain that day. He also helped us to purchase Suica cards and recommended the starting amount. At the end of the tour, he recommended places that were worth visiting for the duration of our stay in Tokyo.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Peter. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I’m so glad to hear that you could see Mt. Fuji on the way to Kyoto. I learned a lot from both of you. I really appreciate your kindness. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family. Thanks a million !!! Keep on traveling !!!

“ A rainy day in Hakone ”

Dai worked very hard to make our day in Hakone enjoyable despite adverse weather conditions with both snow and rain! He had to continually adapt what our plan was due to these conditions and was very apologetic when parts of the planned tour were not achieved. Ultimately we had to cut our day short with Dai due to the conditions but he worked very hard to make sure we had seen as much as we could. He is a really pleasant guy and we would not hesitate to book a day up with him again in the future.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a considerate review, Grant. It was a hard time for me to arrange our tour yesterday. This Hakone Tour was considerably severe without succeeding in all due to bad weather, rain and unexpected snow. But both of you were super kind, thoughtful and helpful, so I had a wonderful time with you.

I am usually an independent traveler, but decided to go with a guide for my first full day in Tokyo. If you are a first-timer to Japan with no Japanese skills (like me), definitely work with Dai! We covered a ton of ground in one day and the experience prepped me to get the most out of the remainder of my time in Tokyo. Great communication on the front end. Dai was very professional and responsive; he even considered my dietary needs in selecting a place for lunch. He is a traveler’s traveler, so don’t hesitate to book with him!

Dai was an A&Mazing tour guide for a group of Texas A&M professors who were in Tokyo to set up a study abroad. VERY quick to respond to emails and inquiries and set up an absolutely perfect walking tour crafted to our interests. His attention to detail was meticulous, even paying attention to the weather forecast with regards to some of the activities we had scheduled (in the end, we didn't decide to change anything because of the snow as we don't get the white stuff much here in Texas). Dai found us a perfect lunch spot where we enjoyed the best bowl of Ramen we have ever had and made the Tokyo subway system look easy (seriously - we were all wishing we had booked him for two days when we attempted it on our own the next day).

Dai was a wonderful guide. We only had a short time and he allowed us to see as much as we could. He also planned our trip in advance and always responded very quickly! He has been to over 150 countries and is very experienced! I would highly recommend Dai.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me a considerate comment, Julia. We actually had three and a half hours in Tokyo, so it was a bit rush tour, but we could visit Asakusa, Tsukiji Outer Market and Akihabara. And you guys enjoyed Sushi, of course, TUNA !!! I was so happy to be able to see you guys' Big Smile at the market. If you come back to Japan again, I would love to show you around Tokyo MORE.

We only had a free half day in Tokyo but didn’t want to miss out on the full Tokyo experience. Dai had come highly recommended by some friends who had spent a day with him. Dai checked with us what we had already seen & which areas we had covered in our exploration before recommending what we could see in our 4 hours. We were thrilled with his choices! He made sure our interests were covered & even helped us get our last shopping bits! We bombarded him with questions from the start about what we had seen, about life in Tokyo & Japan generally. Dai was patient & well informed and answered each & every one of our questions with a smile. I would highly recommend Dai. I would also suggest you spend more time with him than we did - there’s so much to see & hear! Thanks Dai for... read more

We had a group of four and sent Dai a list of things we were interested in and he did an incredible job of planning a great day around the things we wanted to do. He was informative and personable. His schedule was aggressive but he was very accommodating. The little things are what separated him from any tour guide I have ever had: He was attentive to how long we wanted to stay places, could anticipate things we would like, Ensured we had plenty of time for souvenir shopping, taught us how to use the Subway, planned plenty of bathroom breaks, and had an immense amount of patience for our individual interests. I highly recommend doing a tour like this on your first full day in Tokyo and more specifically doing it with Dai as your guide.

He even knew which subway car was more efficient to get out to where the exit or transfer was. He brought us to authentic nontouristy tonkatsu and sushi restaurants. To round out our experience, he also brought us to monster cafe and robot restaurants and hedgehog pet cafe and even saved us money with coupons for these restaurants.

“ One Day in Tokyo. ”

We had a group of four and we were only in Tokyo for the day. What we truly appreciated about Dat is that he was punctual and made sure we got the most experience out of our day. Dai took us on the subway and so getting from place to place was very convenient. In addition, when visiting temples he explained traditions and customs. He was very knowledgable and I would recommend his services to anyone. Dai was excellent.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a great review, Alison. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. Next time if you have more days in Japan, I will show you around other cities as well. I believe you could enjoy staying in Thailand after visiting Japan. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!!

“ Very knowledgeable ”

Dai picked us up promptly at 9 am. He was even a bit early. He had the day planned based on the areas we wanted to see. He had researched the best stores to take us to based on what we wanted to purchase. He gave us thorough information about each area or sight he took us to. Even though we ran a bit overtime he took the time to bring us back to our hotel so we wouldn’t get lost. We would highly recommend Dai as a tour guide for Tokyo.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful review, Meg. Though it was rainy, I had a very enjoyable time with you and your amazing family. I'm so glad to hear that Peter is very happy with his knives. I believe you could enjoy staying in Hakone and Kyoto as well after my tour. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family. Thanks a million !!!

“ 1 Day tour of Tokyo with Dai ”

Dai was amazing. We have three children and traveling with Dai felt like traveling with a local relative. We loved him, but even more importantly, the kids adored him. If he wasn’t booked for the remainder of our trip, we certainly would have extended our booking. Needless to say though, thanks to Dai, we were able to travel Tokyo by subway with confidence.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Brian. It was absolutely my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I had a super amazing time with you, your beautiful wife and of course, your super awesome children. You should be proud of your lovely smart children. I miss them so so much.

We had a great two days with Dai. He was well organized with our itinerary, flexible, on time, and knowledgeable. My daughter and I felt very comfortable with him and after spending two days riding the subways we think we can now do it on our own. We highly recommend him as a guide in Tokyo.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful comment, Mark. It was absolutely my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I had super amazing 2 days with you and your awesome daughter.

“ Tokyo and Hakone 2 Days ”

Super friendly guide. We booked 2 days Hakone and Tokyo with Dai. He met us in advance at our hotel to book our train the next day to Hakone. Even helped us booking our train to Kyoto which is not part of his tour. Dai is easy to talk to and very organized in our tour. Restaurants he suggested are also very good. He even brought us towels to use for our foot bath in Hakone. He is simply a thoughtful person and we appreciate his time with us.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Delia. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo and Hakone. It was super fun time to share the time with you and your family.

Dai was an awesome tour guide. He took us around the city, was extremely knowledgeable of what routes to take, restaurants to visit, and even has a pretty good mastery of Spanish. He’s visited over 150 countries as well, so it was also extremely fun to talk with him about his experiences. We had a great day in Tokyo thanks to Dai. He’s the best!

This was our first time in Japan and we only had two days to see Tokyo area. We could have not picked a better guide than Dai. Both mornings he met us at our hotel lobby and took us to the tours. We saw temples, shines, busy shopping streets and Tokyo Electric town. We took train to Hakone area and enjoyed the lake, hot springs, views and open area musium. Dai introduced us to local food and expanded many things about local traditions and life. Dai is very organized, knowledge and professional. He even had towels so we could dry our feet after enjoying hot spring in Hakone. Every day after the tour he brought us back to our hotel to make sure we didn’t get lost in supper busy Tokyo metro system. Many thanks Dai for our wonderful two days in Tokyo! Dmitriy and family.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Dmitriy. It was absolutely my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo and Hakone. I’m so glad to hear that you could enjoy my tour both days together. It was so much fun to share the time with you and your awesome family. I hope you will have amazing days in Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima and other cities in Japan. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your super wonderful family.

“ Day Tour of Tokyo ”

We spent a FULL day with Dai exploring eastern Tokyo - Tsujikii, Asakusa, Ueno, Akihabara and Imperial Palace. Dai met us at our hotel and dropped us back 8 hours later - exhausted but somewhat enlightened after our first day in Japan. Dai was kind enough to introduce some newbies to Japan to the Tokyo Metro, ATMs, and enough basic language and etiquette to get us of to a great start for the rest of our journey. Dai is a calm, interesting and attentive host with a dry sense of humor - I can definely recommend a day tour in Tokyo with Dai.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a nice review, Nicole. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I'm so glad to hear that it became a good start for your exploring Japan. I really enjoyed sharing the time with you and your amazing family. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family. Thanks a million !!! Cheers mate !!!

“ Tour of Hakone ”

Dai is very personable with excellent English skills. His organization of our trip fromTokyo to Hakone was perfect. We were there during Golden Week but the way he organized our itinerary we avoided the bad crowds. Our tour was fro 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM (including all the transportation) so Dai was very generous with his time and kept us on schedule. Also the lunch spot he picked was wonderful. Dai's only limitation is that he could provide a little more narrative--a little more history. But he did give us good details about every place we visited. Overall we would recommend Dai enthusiastically.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful review, Bobbie. That was a long day, wasn’t it ? Yes, we did the Hakone Day Trip on May 5. So it was one of the busiest day of the year. But we made it ( I believe ). Next time if you come back to Japan, I can show you around other cities, but Not during Golden Week. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your friend. Thanks a million !!!

“ If you like to travel, you have to meet Dai ”

Dai is everything you expect from a tour guide and more. Very professional, hospitable, and attentive. Also, he's been almost everywhere (including my hometown!) so is a very interesting person to know if you like to travel. Excellent English and knows some Spanish which is even better for me. I wanted to go everywhere and he made it happened and adjusted schedule to my liking. He is knowledgeable of the history, culture and other activities/attractions of Tokyo. I learned about the religious traditions and costumes which I'm very grateful. Suggested places that where cool. Best tour guide. Good luck too

I am a travel agent heading up a small custom group through Japan for three weeks. Dai is the gold standard of tour guides. He was our guide for two full day tour in Tokyo. Dai has traveled the world, he was very aware of how to get us around Tokyo extremely efficiently (time connections, costs, best routing, best food). Dai was very thoughtful and caring to each each person in my group. I have traveled to many amazing destinations and I never had a private guide with such impeccable guiding and caring skills. Rating 10 gold stars

“ Awesome Tokyo Day Trip ”

Dia was a wonderful tour guide. He made sure to ask us our interests and planned our stops with them in mind. We used the subway system all day because it stopped closer to all of our locations. Dai had no trouble navigating and kept us in the loop the whole time. He had great recommendations for shopping and food. We came late during cherry blossom season and he even asked if we could change one of our locations so that we could see more blooms. I would highly recommend Dai as your guide!

Dai:

Thank you so much for a kind review, Kelli. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I really enjoyed sharing a fun time with you, guys. Yes, your tour date was supposed to be on time to see cherry blossoms but Spring has come earlier than usual this year. So I changed the place and you could enjoy viewing cherry blossoms.

“ Best Guide in Tokyo ”

This was my first time to Japan and while I have long wanted to travel here, I felt it might be overwhelming to visit. I was lucky enough to have Dai as my guide for two days. He was fantastic. He put together the perfect agenda for our tour and was always open to last minute changes and requests. I had my parents with me who are limited in their ability to walk. Dai was amazing with them and found ways to ensure all of us were happy. He took us to two lunch places that were wonderful and certainly not something I could have found on my own. If you're looking for the best guide in Tokyo - look no further. In Dai you have found the most knowledgeable and friendly guide. He is a wonderful gentleman and am so grateful we had time with him in Tokyo. Mahalo nui loa Dai!

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Mike-san. It was absolutely my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. That was totally memorable two days with you, your parents and friend " Big John ". I was super happy I could share the time with you.

I had 2 full days with Dai with one day in Hakone and another day in Kawagoe. Dai is just great! Very organised and well planned. The days were quite packed but Dai seemed to know the best way to get around with tight connections, to squeeze as much into the day as possible.He is easy going and friendly. The days were full on but Dai was flexible and allowed me more time in some spots and we moved on quickly if I had finished at other spots. Knowing my interest in food, he introduced me to a lot of new Japanese flavours! He is officially THE most well travelled person I have ever met and has a lot of stories about his adventures. It makes for interesting conversation and he is very easy to talk to. I asked him all sorts of questions about Japan and the Japanese way of life. And he was ve... read more

I had a wonderful experience being guided around Tokyo and the Hakone by Dai. He was flexible as to where we toured adjusting easily to my requests and some weather challenges we were presented with. Dai was very organized, promp, informative, and especially knowledgeable about the what, when and where of the expansive transportation systems of Tokyo and beyond. When in the Hakone be sure to visit the Open Air Sculpture Museum and don't miss soaking your feet in the hot springs. You will not be disappointed spending time with this delightful and interesting professional guide.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Geoff. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo and Hakone. Actually the weather was not good together on both days of Tokyo and Hakone. So to me, it was not only challenging but also thought-provoking experience. Especially in Hakone, it was just after the heavy snowing day, so every transportation were changeable. That was a long day, wasn't it ? But you were always encouraging me and finally we made it ! And you have many stories and jokes so I learned tons of things from you. I really really enjoyed and was super HAPPY I could share the time with you.

My son (16) and I spent our first 3 days in Tokyo with Dai as our guide, and I don't think we could possibly have done any better. He is very knowledgeable and experienced (he is an avid traveler himself, which helps a lot!). But in addition to those qualities, he is also helpful, efficient, thoughtful, and kind. He helped us navigate the mass transit system in Tokyo and made it seems so easy that it never even occurred to us that it might actually be difficult to most newcomers. He always had everything well-planned out, but never made us feel like we were pressed for time or "on the clock." If we wanted to spend a little more time in a certain place, he always made us feel like we had all the time in the world (even though I'm sure we didn't...).

“ A fantastic guide! ”

Having Dai as our guide was such a great start to our trip! As backpackers pre kids, we were somewhat hesitant to hire a guide but thankfully we did! Dai made sure he tailored the itinerary to things that we wanted to cover whilst being flexible with two young children. We were able to do something that kept everyone happy - from the fish markets and amazing sushi, Akihabara and Asakusa. We could not have covered anywhere near as much ground on our own. And this time gave us the skills and confidence to explore the rest of Tokyo on our own for the rest of our stay. Thank you Dai for a wonderful day - my son thought of you throughout the rest of our trip, wondering whether you would enjoy the same food or sights we were seeing. Book Dai - before his schedule fills up!!

Thank you so much for giving me such an amazing review, Hazel. It was absolutely my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I was so lucky because your wonderful kids are so smart and patient.

Can’t say enough good things about Dai! It was our first time in Tokyo and had only one free day from business to do a quick overview tour of Tokyo, and Dai took lead and hit every single area we wanted to see, the best part was how patient he was with us with multiple stopping places that we wanted to see. He was great at communicating with locals to help us try new foods and even arranged lunch for us at the oldest ramen establishment in Tokyo! Great job Dai, see you soon!
