Tokyo is a great place where tradition and modernity blends together! Visiting temples, shopping around Harajuku and eating in little restaurants in the heart of Shinjuku is gonna give you the best experience of the city!

Hi, I've been working and living in Tokyo for more than 15 years. I'm a friendly and relaxed person and would be happy to give tours of up to 4 or 5 hours. I am the perfect match for solo travelers, couples, and families with kids (little ones, teenagers) who are looking to experience traditional/typical tourist things and also to see everyday life of people in Tokyo. If you would like to book me please email CityUnscripted for availability as I'm not currently accepting direct bookings. I'm looking forward to showing you around Tokyo! Thank you.

A wonderful night out in Shinjuku

My evening with Daniela was great and I loved every second of it. The fact that she also speaks Italian was great. Of course I speak English, but chatting in Italian the whole time made things much easier and relaxed. It was a clear - but freezing cold - night and Daniela still managed to show me every cranny and nook in Shinjuku. And she also gave me great tips for my further stay in Tokyo. We also went to some local bar, mingling with the locals and it was a funny and interesting experience. We even met the legendary Shinjuku's Tiger Mask! You really can't ask for anything more. I really recommend Daniela as THE guide for your tour in Tokyo.

Tokyo tour and eat and drink

Daniela is the perfect host. She is knowledgeable, fun , interesting; and has the right personality . She was clever enough to match the itinerary to the age and interests of her customers. Her English is first class and the way she engaged with the locals revealed deep understanding of Japanese Culture which she shared with us beautifully. We would gladly recommended Daniela as a guide and hire her again.

Exploring Koenji

I had an unforgettable experience with Daniela discovering Koenji which included a visit to a gorgeous temple along with some hidden vintage clothing and record shops in the area ending with delicious food in some very local Izakayas. Daniela was extremely knowledgable about the area. She introduced me to some amazing dishes that I would have never known to order, in hidden places that do not cater at all to non-Japanese speakers. A truly unique experience and truly great company. Will definitely seek out Daniela again on my next visit to Tokyo - highly recommended!

Look like local

Devo dire che è stata una esperienza molto interessante e frizzante, perché anche se in poche ore, mi ha fatto vivere la città al difuori dai soliti schemi da turista, facendomi scoprire piccole perle di realtà locale che sono di per sé molto affascinanti e che senza Daniela non sarei riuscito a trovare o a vivere nel modo giusto, ovvero sentendomi a mia volta uno di loro.
