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.

“ 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!

“ 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!

“ Great couple of days touring with Dai! ”

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 very happy to share his opinions and insights with me. If I ever need a guide in the Tokyo region again, I would not hesitate to call Dai again.

“ Five Stars and More Guide ”

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.
