About Tour Guide Taka M.

Would you like to have a private guide when you are traveling to Tokyo?

I adjust the experience based upon your needs and desires, so I will ensure that your goals are met.

Hello, I'm Taka.

Tokyo is my hometown all through my life, and I know many interesting places and things to do, which are not yet introduced in the travel books. It will be a real pleasure sharing my knowledge with you.

Tokyo is a truly exciting and multi-dimensional city. I can offer you unique and memorable experiences here in Tokyo. How about walking along some back streets and taste some local delicacies? Or try Sake and Japanese wine?

I have been in broadcasting business for over 30 years, and as a TV director I have made a countless coverage trips all around the globe.

Also I am a professional winemaker in the Unites States, and stay in California during the harvest time every year, from September to November.

With my unique business back ground, I have decided to start my new business as a professional tour guide specializing in the Tokyo area.

Let’s enjoy the cutting-edge Tokyo with a former TV director and a winemaker!

You might think, “Winery in Tokyo?” But the history of winemaking in Japan started in the 19th century. High-quality wines are produced in Japan and some labels have won the gold medal at an international wine competition in France. Let me introduce you a wine tour in Tokyo. The wineries are small. There are no vineyards. But it can be enjoyed as a half day fun trip inside Tokyo.

First Day Tour of Tokyo

This was our first trip to Japan. On our first full day in Tokyo we did a full day city tour with Taka. It was an excellent orientation to Tokyo. We toured four very distinct districts of the city. It was very time efficient to have Taka guide us through the subway system to areas we never would have found on our own. Taka is very personable and speaks great English. Highly recommend this tour!

Gary G.

Thank you, Gary. I am truly delighted to have you and Karen here in Tokyo. I hope you will take home a treasure trove of wonderful memories. Hope to see you again!

Crowning conclusion to our Trip to Japan thanks to Taka

After my son and I had to cancel our first tour with Taka due to illness, we fortunately had the opportunity to reschedule the tour at the end of our trip to Japan. Taka is a great tour guide. He is very friendly, professional and responded to our wishes one hundred percent. Even short-term changes were no problem for him. We had a great day in Shibuy and Akihabara and learned a lot about the lives of young Japanese people. Thank you very much Taka, we will be back and Lennart is already planning a study year abroad in Japan.

Karin D.

Thank you very much for the kindest review, Karin. It was really nice meeting you and your son finally. I hope to see everyone again soon someday in the future. Take care!

A great tour even though it rained all day

Taka is a great guide and I highly recommend booking a tour with him. He is knowledgeable, patient, accommodating, and is a pleasant person to spend the day with. It rained the entire day of our tour but we still enjoyed it thanks to Taka.

I am sure it must have been difficult for you and your daughter due to cold, rainy and windy weather. Thank you very much for the kindest review. It's very encouraging for me. Please come back to Japan someday again!
