I am Australian, from Sydney and I have lived in Tokyo for 10 years. I also spent 2014 and 2015 living in San Francisco where I went to culinary school. I love to cook and eat! I also have a restaurant in Nishiazabu. My husband and children are Japanese, they are native speakers and I am doing my best to catch up! I love to visit art galleries and travel remote Japan. I take weekly Japanese painting (sumi-e) lessons and one of my hobbies is to buy antique kimonos and turn them into wall hanging quilts.

After spending my 18 years of my life in Gunma, I moved to Yokohama for my college. That was the phase where I realized how much I love traveling and exposing myself to different cultures. I spent half a year in the US, and one year in the Netherlands. I've worked at a guesthouse in Nakano for about a year where I loved to meet and talk with people from various backgrounds. I'm always curious about how travelers find Japanese culture; it gives me different perspectives. I have traveled quite a few myself and it was always the people that made my trip the best. I think traveling in Japan could be hard when you do not understand Japanese. Maybe it's not hard but you would be able to experience more when you do or at least you are with someone who does... Well here I am, I'd love to help you experience more and feel at home here in Japan.

I moved to Tokyo because of my love for Japanese Culture...I am a European who has lived in here for 20 years. I am “your Local” in this very exciting great city. Happy to make your vacation the most interesting and creative one, since I am also a promoter of the “Intercultural” lifestyle. So, I am happy to explain to you many aspects and tradition of the old and modern Japanese lifestyle. Happy to show you also the Tokyo`s coolest neighbourhoods (near the sea and the mountain) that not many tourists know about

Hi, I’m Andy. Originally from Melbourne Australia, my young family and I now reside in the laid-back but eclectic neighbourhood of Asagaya, Tokyo. I have a passion for travel, Japanese bicycles, a hot bowl of ramen, a cold beer and exploring the endless treasures that Tokyo has to offer. As a guide, I strive to provide each and every one of my guests with uniquely personalised experiences in this vibrant city that I’m luck enough to call home. Whether it be visiting Tokyo's major draw cards, exploring the local neighbourhoods, sampling all the great food on offer, jumping on a bicycle or drinking beers under the railway tracks- I'll show you a good time. Feel free to contact me with any ideas, plans or thoughts and I’ll get to work on composing your personally tailored experience. I hope to see you on the streets of Tokyo soon. Andy.
