About

Hi, my name is Tak.

I have seen travelers.

And, I found they got tired of typical sightseeing spots, like crowded temples and shrines.

There must be spots fit to your feeling and interests, more in Japan.

Then, I’d like to propose.

Why don’t you start unique and original tour, only your hearts bring to yourselves?

.

I had guided

Pokemon tour

Ghost story tour

Inari Shrines tour

Live house tour

Bento (lunchbox) tour

Textile tour

Papermaking tour

I’ll search the site you want to see and create your unique itinerary.

First, could you give your message about things you want to do and see in Japan?

Let’s make great time you can’t never forget.

Thank you so much.

I live in SHITAMACHI, Tokyo, or old residential town near ASAKUSA and UENO. My hobby is strolling and I walk about this area almost every day. I know even the smallest path, big and small museums, workshops of artisans, an impressive view of gigantic tree, a beer bar in an impressive old house, unique souvenir shops, cats living in Yanaka and many, many other attractive spots in this area.

You can expect a day that nobody read in guide books.

So!

I hope you name me as the navigator of your fantastic memory-making-tour!!!!

I’m 61-year-old and I still love rock’n roll music. If you want to enjoy live music in Tokyo, I can also arrange the location and occasion according to your mood and boom.

Dear Nady. Thank you for the joyful days. I still remember the smiling faces of the 2 families. In particular, I feel really happy a couple of mamas looked enjoying. I know your travel in Japan has a long way after this. If you have trouble, let me know. I think I can assist by sending you some information. I say again, thank you so much. Please good to the dads, the boys, the mom, and the girl. Tak

A Taste of Tokyo

Tak was a very good guide. He took us on a a very varied tour of parts of Tokyo that we would not have sought since they are not typically the top things to see in Tokyo but were well worth it, especially with the explanations provided. He catered to a family with ages ranging from 13 to 79 and made it interesting for all. Thanks Tak!

Hi, Simon. Thank you for the day. That was the day I never forget. Everything went moderately and warm under the spring sunlight (actually, day after day, cold days after the day). I am happy if you enjoy Tsukiji, Hama-Rikyu Garden, and Asakusa. You must make great memories in Kanazawa, Kyoto, and Matsuyama, also. Wish you could see beautiful cherry blossoms there. If you have an opportunity to visit Japan again, let me know. I say thank you one more time. Tak

Excellent planning & customer service with our wishlist to multiple destinations!

Tak makes you feel like family right from the first meeting with his preparation of a traditional Japanese candy gift. He arrived an hour earlier than scheduled on Day 1 and did not mind giving us a head start. We booked him for 10 hours for Day 1 & 2 and a half day on Day 3. He never once counted the start or end time so we really appreciated his flexibility. He understood that our goal was to go to as many attractions as possible and helped us prioritize making sure that we made it to our top attractions. He even checked out an unpopular hidden river valley for us (per our Google search) and went there to check it out for the first time a few days before our arrival - so that he could best accompany when we go there. We were very touched by Tak’s thoughtfulness and overall hospitality taking us from train station to station, stop to stop, and block to block. He is extremely patient with all of the all-day walking that we did. I was first impressed when he sent me his carefully thought out plans prior to our arrival; he had mapped out our 10-20 attractions list by the minute: parks, museums, shopping areas, fish market, baseball game, toy stores, shrines & temples, boat tour, etc. Tak is well spoken in English and though he has a Japanese accent, we had no problem communicating to him nor understanding him. We did make some quick changes to our itinerary with a pet cafe and the Tokyo Stock Exchange and he was able to adjust the schedule quickly for us. Tak is super organized and efficient not to mention a delight to be with. My husband and I highly recommend him to anyone visiting Japan who wants to save time and focus on making the best out of their trip - with some fun too of course. We appreciated that Tak didn’t bore us with too many details and history; instead he would often stop to ask us if we wanted to lean more. We’ll definitely miss him and highly recommend him to guide Tokyo as a first time visitor or returning but still need some guidance!

Hi, Katiya. Thank you for the super review. It was my relief you and Tim enjoyed the days, even though the rain, the wind, and the homer in the 9th frame (lol) stood in our way. You always showed me what you'd like to do. Then, it wasn't so difficult to find a clue. I love to find a new place to take my guests. At least, you gave me 3 of great experience to collect new sites, the valley, the stock market, and the boat. Thank you for the opportunities, and I hope my collection will be the many like Tim's cars. Wish you could spend great moments in Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, and the flight going back to your home. I say again, thank you so much. I'll be waiting for the time to meet you and Tim again.
