Move around Tokyo with a Local as You Like!

This is an 8-hour tailor-made tour. I will arrange a wonderful itinerary to suit your preferences from scratch!

A sample itinerary and possible places to visit are in 'Itinerary' section. If you have any other places/activities/food in your mind, please feel free to let me know. I will do my best to include them.

I have lived in and have been enjoying Tokyo for 30+ years, and I got recently certified as a national tour-guide interpreter of English. I will keep honest and considerate, acting like one of your Tokyo friends, and will do my best to offer you a memorable experience as a professional.
