Ken T.

Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan

Other than spending five years in Portland, Oregon (US) when I was a small child, I have lived in Tokyo all my life.

I was extremely lucky to be able to see a different culture as well as start learning English at a young age - it's certainly helping with what I do now! After about 10 years in the shipping industry, I am currently in my third year providing personalized tours around the Tokyo area.

I have been mainly providing guided walks with the use of the city's excellent public transportation system. Not only is it the best way to efficiently get around the city, it also gives you a good view of the way of life for locals living in Tokyo. After spending the first day or two of your stay with me, you should feel confidence in navigating the city by yourself and feel like you are a Tokyoite yourself! My tours should also be a good alternative to bus tours, since you have more freedom and the chance to directly ask the guide about any questions regarding Tokyo and Japan.

At the moment, I am providing tours within central Tokyo only. For additional fee, I can also arrange visits to the sumo stables to see the morning training. Visits are not available during certain times of the year, so please inquire first.

I looking forward to showing you around my city.
