About

Hi, my name is Tak.

I have seen travelers.
And, I found they got tired of typical sightseeing spots, like crowded temples and shrines.

There must be spots fit to your feeling and interests, more in Japan.
Then, I’d like to propose.
Why don’t you start unique and original tour, only your hearts bring to yourselves?
.

I had guided
Pokemon tour
Ghost story tour
Inari Shrines tour
Live house tour
Bento (lunchbox) tour
Textile tour
Papermaking tour
I’ll search the site you want to see and create your unique itinerary.

First, could you give your message about things you want to do and see in Japan?
Let’s make great time you can’t never forget.

Thank you so much.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
I live in SHITAMACHI, Tokyo, or old residential town near ASAKUSA and UENO. My hobby is strolling and I walk about this area almost every day. I know even the smallest path, big and small museums, workshops of artisans, an impressive view of gigantic tree, a beer bar in an impressive old house, unique souvenir shops, cats living in Yanaka and many, many other attractive spots in this area.

You can expect a day that nobody read in guide books.
So!
I hope you name me as the navigator of your fantastic memory-making-tour!!!!

I’m 61-year-old and I still love rock’n roll music. If you want to enjoy live music in Tokyo, I can also arrange the location and occasion according to your mood and boom.

“ Caring and very thoughtful Licensed Guide ”

We spent 8 hours total (3 the first night) and 5 the second with Tak! From the first communication to the day we finished up, he was genuinely caring and thoughtful. He provided to us exactly what we wanted/needed. Our first goal was meet up with us at hotel the evening we land (after traveling for nearly 20 hours), take us to an enjoyable fun place to experience some of the culture, eat great food and learn the subways! He told us what to do when we got to the airport, and then met our train (even changed stations "on the fly" when our train didn't stop). He ensured our second day included visiting running stores (I came in for Tokyo marathon), and included sights on our way over to the expo! We had a nice Ramen lunch and did a great job explaining everything. By the time he left us o... read more

Tak:

Hello, Missy. Thank you for a marvelous review for me. The voices of guests who enjoyed tours are my treasure more than anything. Thank you for pointing out for my English. I know that my English is not perfect, so I tried to prepare a lot and provide information to make my precious guests have the best moments. The memories of 2 days we spent together are everything beautiful even for the cold rain. Have a good run at Boston! Tak

“ Fantastic!! ”

Tak is the best guide ever. We saw so much in 3 hours. And he explained everything. Also had the best tempura I have had in my life. He is so friendly and knows all of the out of the way places. Whatever we were interested in he knew how to find it. Thank you Tak-san!!

Tak:

And, both of you are fantastic guests. I felt utmost happiness because you enjoyed everything you saw and touched. I'm looking forward to talking to you again someday you came back to Japan. Have a good flight and I wish your memories will be kept forever. Tak

“ Friendly, Warm, and Accommodating ”

We started our travels in Japan with Tak taking us around Tokyo. We accomplished so much and had such a good time on our first day that we decided to book Tak for a second day. Tak paid attention To what we wanted to do and who we were and he was a gentle supportive presence as we acclimated ourselves to Tokyo and Japan. His good humor and warm presence felt almost familial. My son and I felt super comfortable with him and appreciated his commitment to getting us from point a to b and keeping our time somewhat structured and loose at the same time. Highly recommended!!!

Tak:

Dear Neal. It was wonderful time to spend with you and Adam. Smiling faces are nothing but the best reward to us guides. You gave me nothing but the best reward by enjoying every moments of 2 days. I heard your experience in Japan goes on for more days. I believe you can find great fans in every moment in Japan. Thank you and see you someday. Tak

“ Wonderful Day ”

Tak was fantastic. He worked with us before our trip to plan our day and offered great suggestions. Communication was throughout our planning and our day. For the day of the tour, he met us at our hotel and showed us how to use the subway system. He provided interesting facts, taught us easy ways to remember some key Japanese worlds and has a thorough knowledge of Tokyo and it’s history. He’s also quite funny. We has a lot of fun spending our first day in Tokyo with him. We highly recommend Tak as a guide to show you around the city.

Tak:

Dear Kimberly Thank you for the great day and splendid 5 stars. It is the best moment when I could confirm guests spent happy time. As I said I’ll never forget smiling faces of you. I’ll try hard to join the Olympic Games in 2024 in LA, as I promised. i’ll be 68 at that time though.OMG I say again thank you so much. Tak
