I work in all over the city.

About me

I am a mixed Japanese Sri Lankan, born and raised in Tokyo. My college years and half of my professional life has been in the US, but is was upon returning back to Tokyo after having lived abroad, that I've really grown to appreciate all that makes Tokyo one of the most interesting cities in the world! Using my bilingual fluency & my native understanding of where things are in this great big city, it's always such a fun experience getting to show people around!

Walking tour in central Tokyo

Our family met with Tarek, who is fluent in English. He was pretty cool and laid back. Our only request for our tour was to see the Akrihabara district and learn the train stations, and how to take the train around Tokyo. Our short tour with Tarek was informative, relaxed, off the cuff, and "unscripted."

Half day walking tour in Tokyo, City unscripted

Tarek planned a tour to suit our interests and physical limitations. He obviously had a good knowledge of the city because he introduced us to 4 entirely different experiences in the same neighbourhood. With his encouragement we were able to relax and enjoy meeting people and eating the foods.

HALF DAY IN TOKYO WITH A LOCAL

My partner and I had a great time with Martin. The day was very hot but Martin managed to make the journey interesting and he also adapted the route to suit our wants and needs. We managed to see the three must-dos things in our list. We will do it again in the future. In the photo we are doing the Shibuya Crossing, a must for all visitors. We highly recommend it.

Great intro tour day to Tokyo

We really enjoyed this tour , particularly as it was our first day in Tokyo . Good communication before hand to understand our interests . Martin was a great guide and really knew his stuff as well as throwing in cultural references to how life is living in Tokyo .

TOKYO, MUST SEE TOKYO WITH A LOCAL TWIST

Great way to learn the city

Belinda was our tour guide and we decided on a half day tour on our first full day in Japan. It was a great decision. She was knowledgeable and we were able to see different neighborhoods using the trains. We purchased our Suica cards before we arrived and it was the best thing we could’ve done. It was already preloaded with funds and easy to use at stations. With Belinda we got to see Akihabara, fish market, Asakusa. We departed each other at Ueno station so we could spend the rest of day at the park and visit the national museum. Thanks to Belinda we were confident in taking the subways. We went back to some of the neighborhoods to do some official shopping. We didn’t want to use our time with Belinda to shop bc we wanted to be able to see as much as we could and then decide how we were going to spend the rest of time in Japan. Thanks Belinda you were awesome!!!
