About me

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

I always have a curious mind as I know there is always things to explore no matter how long you stay at a place. I just love culture, language and people and I love to show people around especially when they are interested in local culture and communications!

For starters, I live for food, travel and experience. By profession I am a photographer. I normally work for organisations like Unicef & UNDP and other local organisations around Asia and East Africa. I also write and stories for multiple English language publications in Japan in the pipeline. I love to learn new languages, so I am practicing my Japanese everyday. I like to meet people from different backgrounds and I am happy to show people around this amazingly mysterious city. I am very excited to be living here and I explore something new everyday, so I will be showing around with equal excitement.
