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 became a tour guide back in 2015 and mainly provide personalized tours within the Tokyo area.
Most of my tours are done with 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.
I am looking forward to showing you around my city.
***Starting August, I am providing complimentary WiFi on all my tours. You have access to my pocket WiFi device for doing any research or sending photos to your family/friends during the tour.
A Recent Review of this guide
Ken was a great tour guide. He showed us around Tokyo on our first day in the city, giving us a great overview of the city and a taste of a number of places we would go back to explore further later. He also helped us organise travel cards and helped us to work our how the public transport system worked. He was very understanding of our children who were tired from the flight to Japan, even suggesting that we finish the tour with a trip to a toy store rather than more site seeing- a hit in their eyes!
