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.

“ Two wonderful days with Dai in Tokyo ”

Four of us from California had 2 fantastic days touring around with Dai. He speaks perfect English, knows Tokyo thoroughly and how to get around most efficiently and creates an interesting and enjoyable itinerary. He was anxious to educate us on religious customs and aspects of Japanese culture. And what an amazing world traveler is Dia! He is an especially kind, polite and giving person and we were very lucky to have spent the two days with him.

Dai:

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a considerate review, Joel. It was absolutely my great pleasure to have showed you around Tokyo for both two days. It was super FUN to talk and share the time with all of you. I hope you will have another wonderful and memorable days in Kyoto, Okayama, Hiroshima and Hakone as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!!

“ Wonderful first time visit to Tokyo ”

We (2 couples) had a wonderful day with Dai. He is very knowledgeable about Japanese culture and customs, and knows Tokyo and how to navigate it very well. He is nice, calm, personable, and a pleasure to be with. In addition he speaks English pretty well. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Tokyo, and look forward to coming back and spending more time in the city.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me a prompt feedback, Esther. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo as your guide. I also had a wonderful time with all of you. I really appreciate your kindness and cooperation during the tour. I hope you will have a nice flight back to the States. Please come back to Japan again, maybe in April to see cherry blossoms. Take good care of yourself and please give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!!

“ Tokyo 1 day tour ”

We had a great experience with Dai. HIs knowledge of the 14 subway lines to get us around Tokyo was truly amazing! He also recommended a great ramen house that was a neighborhood gem,and delicious. I would highly recommend him when in Tokyo.

Dai:

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a wonderful review, Grace. Although it was raining all day long, I really enjoyed talking and sharing the time with both of you. And I was happy to be able to see you guys enjoyed Tuna Steak at Tsukiji Outer Market and Ramen Noodles in Harajuku. I hope you will have another awesome days in Tokyo. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to Cool Russ. Thanks a million !!!

“ Excellent guide ”

Although it was heavy rain on the day (and Dai did warn us beforehand) he still worked with us to make an alternative plan to see indoor sites. Very cool dude.

Dai:

Thank you so much for a thoughtful review, Rob. Unfortunately it was heavy rain during the tour, but I tried my best. I believe you could enjoy watching Rugby World Cup Games at the stadium. Please come back to Japan again in the future and give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!! Cheers !!!

“ Group of 5 in Tokyo ”

Dai did an amazing job filling a large “want list“ from five very different personalities I’m sure it was a daunting task for him, but we spent two days with Dai and left feeling that we had a fabulous tour of Tokyo And a good understanding of the city He made sure that we were also able to squeeze in some great food and shopping along the way. Dai was flexible, patient, and considerate of every one in the group - a true pro.

Dai:

Thank you so much for a considerate review, Cindi. I also had amazing two days with all of you. Especially I was happy to be able to see you guys enjoyed Tonkotsu Ramen Noodles in Harajuku. I believe all of you were safely back to the States. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your husband, Gary, lovely Marci, pretty Jennifer and cool Jacob. Thanks a million !!!
