About

【Recommended for 1. business traveler or 2. family traveler with kids】

Welcome to Japan!!!

My name is Takashi(Tak) and I am a BLEISURE guide(Business + Leisure) who can support you both business interpretation and your pleasure time. And I am licensed tour English guide in Japan.

I love to travel. I've visited 80 countries for last 15 years. it is very exciting to know about different cultures, foods, life style in each country. I am addicted for it.

One of my favorite city to stay is Tokyo. I am able to guide you both for the traditional part and the modern part in Tokyo. For the traditional part, I like Asakusa, Tsukiji fish market and Yanaka area to walk around. For the modern part, I like Harajuku and Akihabara because it is very original in Japan and you can find very specific culture only this area in the world.

<1. For business traveler>

Furthermore, I also welcome a guest who visits Japan for business purpose. You may have limited private time. You may make a stop only for 24 hours in Tokyo for transit of your flights. Within the limited time, you can enjoy Tokyo highlights in the evening & night with the professional local guide.

In case you would have a business meeting with Japanese company, you may need to find a business interpreter for the meeting because many Japanese still can not speak in English frequently. I would offer you Bleisure tour(Business + Leisure) which you can combine business and leisure together in one day. You do not need to find a business interpreter separately.

Regarding my business experience, I had worked for one of the biggest Japanese investment and trading company for 12 years. I have a lot of business experience build bridges between Japanese companies and foreign companies especially in USA, Europe and the Middle East. In 2012, I went Dubai to work as marketing and sales manager. I had worked there for about 4 years and I've done a lot of business negotiation. To be frank, Japanese business culture is unique compared to global standard. And

if you are not used to doing business with Japanese companies, I believe you need a help.

<2. For family traveler with kids>

In the home, I am a father of 3 kids. My kids ages are 5 years old, 3 years old and 9 months old. I know how to arrange an itinerary with little kids. I welcome a guest with little kids. I can make the original and special tour for your family which kids can also enjoy. And if you have a baby stroller, it is very tricky to find out where an elevator is located at each subway and train station. With the professional local guide, you do not need to be troubled about this kind of issues.

Thank you very much for reading my introduction.

I hope to see you soon in Japan!

1 Day Trip Review

I have been guided by Takashi around Tokyo and Akiba for a short but very interesting trip during my lay-over time during the fight to my hometome. He was an excellent guide, very humble with very influential English speaking. I will definitely come back for another longer trip, there are still so many ppaces i wish to visit. I just love Japan!

Takashi I.

Dear Quy san Thank you very much for choosing my private tour and it was very fun to dig in Akihabara together. Not only visiting a maid cafe but also we visited Sushi shop operated by women chef. I am also happy that we could find great gifts for your family and friends during the tour. Please come back to Japan for your vacation next time.

Tour of Tsukiji Fish Market/Asakusa area

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Tsukiji Fish Market and Asakusa area with Takashi as our guide. His knowledge of Japanese culture and history, along with his excellent ability to communicate in English, allowed our multigenerational group to maximize our time in Tokyo. He guided us through busy streets and patiently explained about the various sights, foods and products along the way. We were able to experience and understand so much more of the culture as a result of our time with Takashi in Tokyo. Thank you!

Meiji Jingu & Harajuku

We are a family of four, with two kids aged 13 and 12. Takashi met us at our hotel in Ginza, got us started with Pasmo cards to use for train tickets, and guided us for most of a day. He took us first to the Meiji Jingu temple and showed us how to pass through each of the temple gates with appropriate respect (stop and bow at each gate), how to use the water ladles for purification before entering the main temple, and explained the locals use the various parts of the temple. At nearby Takeshita Street in Harajuku, our kids were fascinated with the colours, the costumes, and the photo booths. Lunch at the Kawaii monster cafe was a highlight. Takashi was patient with us and gave us excellent explanations in answer to all our questions.

Takashi I.

Hello! It was great to see you and your family. And thank you very much for your sweet gifts from New Zealand! Harajuku area is one of the unique area in Japan. It was nice to try photo booth (we call Print club) as Japanese girls in Harajuku. And we enjoyed time at the Kawaii monster cafe a lot. They just started Halloween decoration for foods and the food decoration was amazing. Please come back to Japan for your vacation. I would like to recommend to visit other cities Osaka & Kyoto next time. It is different from Tokyo and you will find different food, culture and people!
