Hi, I'm Dai, a national licensed tour guide for people from all over the world.
I’m crazy about traveling around the world.
I’ve backpacked in over 150 countries.
So I'm proud of my traveling skills, flexibility and patience that 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, extraordinary and something you've never done before.
Also, I used to work at a hostel in Asakusa, so I'm quite familiar with Asakusa area.
I'd love to help international tourists enjoy their stay in Japan.
You can arrange your own itinerary as you like.
Please feel free to contact me anytime, if you have any questions.
I'm really looking forward to seeing YOU soon. Thank YOU.
My tour is a walking tour using public transportation, mainly Tokyo Metro (Subway).
Tokyo Metro 24-hour Ticket is 600 yen for adults, 300 yen for children.
Please remember that all transportation fees for you and guide are not included in my tour price.
I don’t do the tour using arranged cars and buses.
Dai was very patient with our group that, among others, contained two teenage boys who derailed our tour partway through and wanted to go elsewhere. He managed to find a vegan restaurant that was amazing for our group, navigated us through the beautiful, busy streets of Asakusa (I would love to go back), and then switched up and took us over to Akihabara so the boys could anime it up. Thanks for putting up with us, Dai!
Thank you so much for giving me such a considerate review, Aerin. I was afraid that your children might not like my tour. I was worried about it all the time. But I had such a great time thanks to you. Also, I was very surprised that all of you, especially your sons could speak some Japanese and tried to communicate with local people. That was amazing. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your wonderful children. Thanks a million!!!
Our guide for the day "Dai" was excellent. He met us right on time and guided us through the Tokyo metro system; seeing all the sights we had agreed prior to the tour. We would never have been able to see as much as we did without him. Even though we used the metro to get around the city there was still a lot of walking, so glad we all had suitable footwear. If you are only in Tokyo for a short time and want to see as much as you can, then this tour is spot on.
Thank you, Anthony for giving me such a thoughtful review. I'm so glad to hear that you had an excellent day. It was nice talking to you during the tour. I learned so much from all of you. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your lovely family and friends. Have a great cruise trip!!! Thanks a million!!!
Thank you Dai for the fun tour today! We enjoyed traveling with you and appreciated your additional information and context. Very good guide.
Thank you so much for a kind comment, Glenn. I also enjoyed traveling and talking with both of you. I hope you will have a wonderful time in Tokyo. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your wife, Mary. Thanks a million!!! Good luck in the Tokyo Marathon 2023!!!
Dai was very punctual and met us up on time at our hotel. Prior to this, he sent messages to confirm that our plans would push through. We also requested some of the places in the itinerary be omitted since we were not interested in purchasing items from those places. We requested emphasis on getting to know the history and detailed background about the places we visited, and were not disappointed at all. Dai was thorough and very complete with describing the culture, the stories behind the temples and the landmarks. He even brought pamphlets and maps on the areas we were visiting. For lunch, we requested to be taken to an unagi restaurant. Dai brought us to a spot known to locals and we had such fun enjoying the freshly grilled unagi meal. It was a treat and the whole tour did not feel rushed. We had plans later in the afternoon but Dai made sure to drop us off a location we requested before ensuring we were knowledgable enough not to get lost on the way to our next destination. Will definitely recommend Dai to anybody looking to enjoy a visit to Asakusa!
Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a thoughtful review, Marc. It was my great pleasure to show you guys around Asakusa and Ueno area. I had a wonderful time together with you. It was super fun to be able to talk with you guys. And that UNAGI lunch was amazing! I'm so glad to hear that you could enjoy my tour. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your smart cool friend. Thanks a million!!!
