Would you like to have a private guide when you are traveling to Tokyo?
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!
Excellent day! He took me all over Tokyo and showed me where locals go, and we moved through the city at a great pace. He is very knowledgeable about the city and shared his expertise
Dear Michele, Thank you very much for your nice review comment. I am pleased to have been your tour guide in Tokyo. We walked a lot visiting lots of local spots. I really enjoyed the beautiful day with you. Thank you again and take care !
Taka was an excellent guide. He helped create a tour for our family of 4, like food tasting at Tsujiki Fish Market and teen shopping at Harajuku, along with giving us information at all the sites we visited. He also showed us the numerous Winter Illumination shows in Tokyo. Since it was our second time in Tokyo, Taka made sure that we did not go to the same place twice. Would highly recommend him for any tour.
Thank you so much for your review, Regan!! I also had a enjoyable time with your family. I think the tour should be flexible as much as possible to my guest's needs and requests on that day. Through a good conversation and relationship between a guide and guests makes easier to understand what you'd like to see and get in my tour. I've kept learning and will enhance my guiding skills for your future visit. Happy New Year!
we met Taka on time at the appointed time in front of our apartment and got on well from the start. taka told us a lot about Tokyo and showed us many great impressive places and buildings, gave us countless tips for the next few days, what else we should see, where to find good food and what to look out for. it was a fantastic day with him despite the bad weather. but also for bad weather taka has many good tips on what to do. thank you taka for the great time with you and the great tip for the Shabu-Shabu, delicious
Thank you for giving me a great feedback about the tour, Timm. I always have a sense of responsibility to being a professional guide. Working for not only myself but also for your happiness. Hope you will have memorable days in other countries as well!
We had a wonderful day with Taka. On a sunny, mild December day we enjoyed the magnificent Rikugien Garden with autumn colors. We headed to Sugamo and “Grandma’s Market“ where we had a delicious lunch of fried oysters, shrimp and pork. We strolled through the alleys of Kagurazaka and ended at an Izakaya in Monzennakacho. Taka put together a perfect itinerary for our group of three who had requested non-touristy destinations! We enjoyed our time with Taka and appreciated his broad knowledge of Tokyo and his expert navigation of the subway system. Thank you, Taka!
Thank you for taking your time to post such a nice review, Cathy. We did not visit touristy places but I’m glad you enjoyed strolling around and appreciating the local areas. Thank you again for sharing fun time with you and your great company. Best wishes!
