About Tour Guide Grant A.

My name is Grant I lived more than 10 years in Japan. I graduated University and translation school in Tokyo. I am fluent in Japanese. I have a degree in Asian studies and have expert-level knowledge of Japanese culture and history. I have memorized the JR rail system across all of Japan, I use the same train timetable calculators as the station staff, and I have experience using bullet train passes that are exclusive to foreign visitors. I can optimally navigate the Tokyo underground and maximize value from a Tokyo metro pass and also understand Tokyo above ground which will allow for seamless transitions between different metro stations and landmarks with minimal backtracking.


My tour fee is

20,000yen for 1-6hours (135.28USD)

30,000yen for 7-9hours (202.93USD)

40,000yen for 9-12hours (270.57USD)


I have half-day tours listed at 20,000 yen (135.28USD) at the moment but you can combine them or do a custom tour for roughly up to 9 hours for 30,000 yen (202.93USD). The time transiting to and from your hotel for pick up or drop off within Tokyo 23wards does not count towards an increase in the price.

Great start to our trip

We asked for a few hour tour with Grant to see Cherry Blossoms around the city. Grant was incredibly nice and thoughtful throughout our tour. With two small kids, he was adjustable with the tour and provided insight and history along the way that made it fun to learn. He was very flexible when we needed to stop and eat or rest! Highly recommend Grant as he knows the area well, makes great recommendations for food and for other sites to see while on our trip. He also showed and recommended places our kids wanted to go once he knew what they were into. Great tour and great start to our trip!!!

Honjo Life Safety Learning Center Visit

We visited the Honjo Life Safety Learning Center today in Tokyo because I wanted to experience the typhoon and earthquake simulations - I highly recommend visiting the Center and hiring Grant as your translator/interpreter. The Center requested that I bring my own translator as the Center’s instructors deliver their lessons only in Japanese. I reached out to Grant and he was very responsive with a proposal, which I accepted after exchanging emails with him and other interpreters listed on gowithguide.com. He met us promptly at our hotel this morning and we took the subway to the Center together. He is a courteous and professional intermediary - it was great to understand what was going on, and to be able to participate in Q+A with the Center’s instructors. Grant made sure we were well cared for every step of the way. Google Translate doesn’t hold a candle to working with Grant who is a professionally trained Japanese translator/interpreter, genial companion, guide, and advocate for his clients.Thanks, Grant!
