Hello ! Bonjour ! I'm from France but I lived in London for 10 years and travelled to southeast Asia for a couple of months for a career break before arriving in Japan. I have a business and finance background but I'm now an entrepreneur developing my own activity. I'm passionate about travelling and I visited over 40 countries. I love conversations with people, listen to their stories and share mine and I like to show the diverse sides of Tokyo, from the traditional temples, to trendy shopping streets, hipster areas and of course the touristic places from your travel book too. Whether you speak French or English and would like to visit Tokyo with a friendly local, feel free to reach out to me, I would be happy to show you around. I'm open minded and respectful of traditions, culture, gender and sexual orientation.

the tour with Kenji was a great success

A private tour with Kenji involving my family - including four grandchildren aged 12 to 15 - was perfect. Our brief for Kenji was to take us to places we would otherwise have not known about, and this he did: Cherry Blossom was the main focus with two different locations just so beautiful! The most enjoyable part of the tour was, however the interaction we had with Kenji - especially that which he had with the children. Kenji has a wonderful personality, good humour and all with excellent English. Our time with Kenji was a real highlight of our two weeks in Japan.

Great local experience

Kenji was fantastic and the food we ate in this tour was incredible. Kenji is clearly someone who appreciates good food both traditional and with a modern twist. We tried sake for the first time as well as a range of other dishes we would not have known to try without kenjis help. Kenji answered all my questions about what else to try on our trip. We loved being welcomed into restaurants where no other tourists were. This tour is the best!!! Bec and Dan

TOURS IN TOKYO

We did 4 different tours in Tokyo. "Tokyo's nocturnal playground", and "Eat and drink like a local"; this two where probably the highlights of our trip; both host, Kenji and Sergio; they are fun, knowledge and very helpful. I will definitely recommend this company; we change few times the days and book last minute and they were super accommodating, so if you don't know Japan you definitely need somebody like them!
