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.

Mr. Dai is very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. My family was very thankful for his service.
Thank you so much for a considerate review, Huong. I had a wonderful time with all of you. Especially, I was so happy to be able to see you guys enjoying Seafood at Tsukiji Outer Market. You don’t have much time to see Tokyo this time, so please come back to Japan soon. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your amazing family. Thanks a million !!!
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.
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. I really appreciate your kindness and cooperation. I'm looking forward to working with you again sometime in the future. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your awesome students. Thanks a million !!!
We had a wonderful tour in Tokyo with Dai. He was very helpful and knowledgable. We were able to see many things in a short period of time. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much for a thoughtful review, Steven. It was my great pleasure to have showed you around Tokyo. You didn't have much time to see Tokyo this time, so next time if you come back to Japan, I would love to show you around Tokyo more. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your wonderful family. Thanks a million !!!
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.
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. It was super FUN to talk and share the time with all of you. I believe you could enjoy staying in Japan after my tour as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your wonderful family. Thanks a million !!! Cam on !!! Hen gap lai !!!
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.
Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a thoughtful review, Michelle. I also had amazing two days with all of you. I really hope you will have wonderful days in Kyoto and Nara as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your awesome family. Thanks a million !!!
