About me

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!

TOKYO, HALF DAY IN TOKYO WITH A LOCALJanet

Wonderful

It was great to have a Chinese taking me around Tokyo, which makes the conversation more interesting since we speak the same language. A very big thank you to Janet who spent real efforts planning the route for me as I have already been to most of the tourist spots, which could have made her planning more difficult.

Nice and friendly guide

Janet is a nice and easy going person. She prepared well, but was a bit slow in communicating her itinerary to us. We had a fun day with her. She is not Japanese herself, but has lived in Tokyo for more than 3 years.

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.

TOKYO, MUST SEE TOKYO WITH A LOCAL TWIST

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

August 2019

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!!!
