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.

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.
Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a thoughtful review, Jeffery. I had a great time with you and your friends. It was super fun to talk and share the time with you guys. I hope your business is going well in Tokyo and Sydney as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!!
Dai was an excellent tour guide. He planned a phenomenal day in Tokyo based on suggestions I gave him and he was extremely flexible when I told him last minute that my hotel changed. He taught me how to use the Tokyo Metro and how to properly enjoy sushi in the Tsukiji Fish Market. At the end of the tour we were an hour ahead of schedule and Dai knew exactly where to take me so that no time was wasted.
Thank you so much, Lisa. I really appreciate your feedback. Things mixed up a little, but fortunately we made it in the end. Hopefully see you all again sometime in the future. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family, of course, your talented son, Solomon. Thanks a million !!!
Dai is a great guy very easy to get along with and with detailed knowledge of the city. He has travelled the world and knows what tourists are looking for while keeping the service personalised. We highly recommend him.
Thank you so much for a kind comment, Lampros. It was a fine day and fortunately we could see 4.5m long and 500kg WARAJI ( straw sandals ) at Sensoji Temple and traditional Shinto Style Wedding at Meiji Jingu Shrine during our tour. I had a super fun and wonderful time with you guys. Hope you will have amazing days in Japan. Please give my best regards to your friends. Thanks a million !!!
Dai - Thank you for giving us such a wonderful experience of your city. It was very obvious to us that you are a world traveler and know exactly what a new visitor requires in such a large city. Such interest and knowledge is what every guide needs and Dai certainly had that. Thank you Mary Lee
Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Mary. It was my great pleasure to have showed you around Tokyo. I also had an amazing time with you and your family and learned so much from 3 of you. Hope you will have great days and wonderful memories in Japan. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your awesome family, Martin and Yvonne. Thanks a million !!!
My partner and I really enjoyed our tour with Dai. In addition to showing us all around Tokyo, I loved that he took the time to provide us the history and fun facts for each of the places we went to. I feel like my understanding of the history and culture of Japan grew so much as did my appreciation for it. Dai was super open to my many questions and didn't hesitate to answer them. We ended up having to cut back some of the places we went to at the end as we took too much time at each place but I didn't feel like I missed out. I also appreciated that Dai took a few extra minutes to make sure we reached our final destination and made sure we knew how to get back to our hotel from there.
Thank you Lena for giving me such a thoughtful review. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. I also had a super wonderful day with you guys. And it was so much fun to talk with you and your partner about many things. I believe you could enjoy staying in Japan after my tour as well. Next time if you come back to Japan, I would love to show you guys around other places and cities. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your partner Rowdy. Thanks a million !!!
