About me

I will show you all the beautiful aspects of Tokyo and why I fell in love with this city. We can go sightseeing immersed in that mix between history and technology that never ends in Tokyo. We will be walking across temples and shrines, chasing the misterious beautiness of this place which seems to be frozen in time and then jump in the most technologically wards which are one of the most characteristic symbols of this metropolis. We can have lunch in typical restaurants or cafè and I can show you shopping spots around ;) If you are interest in, I can also take you to Kamakura or Enoshima, which are about 1h by train from Tokyo ^_^ I can also help you with translations and interpreter work, with train or bus tickets and bookings* to make your travel experience as comfortable as possible :) *(Hotels, tourist spots and, if you are interested in typical Japanese culture, like tea ceremony, theatre exhibition, ecc.. I can find some events and book them for you)

My most exciting things to do in Tokyo

Tokyo is its mixture between high-technology places to historical and religious sites staying still during the passing time. The most exciting thing is walking around and see those different areas and places passing and changing around you, with a lot of temples and green in between. After a drink in a cafe with still tatami floor and bamboo walls you can go and play the latest video games in Akihabara, the Electric City. It's almost a time-travel experience..super exciting ;)

People who viewed Martina also viewed these hosts

Hello there! I'm half Japanese and Filipino, 23 years old. I speak 3 languages fluently and starting to learn Italian now. I'm a Chef in Tokyo, mainly European and Asian cuisine. I'm very much interested in Food and Beverage. I also love travelling a lot but i hate riding the plane because sitting for long hours is not for me, so I've only been to Asian countries. I live in a place called Asakusa, which is a very famous old area. Temples, old restaurants/cafes, old shops, etc. are located there. I'm interested in a lots of things so I try to go visit places and learn something new. Tokyo is a very different city from anywhere else. It's very new, but it's old. In one place, you'll see all the parks and trees; then in one area with the concrete jungles. I would also recommend you to try cities like Kyoto, Osaka, Kanazawa, etc. Which are really different from each other(Atmosphere, People, etc)

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!

I am a Latin American man living in Tokyo, a happy yogi and proud father. Lover of adventures, new places, technology, history, art, food, music and spiritual life. Tokyo has everything! I love going to new places, learn their stories, secrets, and mysteries and then sharing those treasures. I also love to cook. I believe cooking is a blessing from God. Let's have a fun trip together and see the city from a different view.

Best way to see Tokyo in a short time.

We had an excellent experience in Tokyo with Martina, combining a 6 Hour “hire a friend” experience with a 4 hour food tour. Martina made sure we attended an amazing cultural festival in the city combined with over the top street food. We would never have done this on our own. She helped me purchase a special knife as a gift at the old fish market. We navigated the metro city with ease with her help and we experienced Tokyo in ways we would never have been able to do on our own. I would do this again in Tokyo and other cities where City Unscripted operates.

Tokyo: Locals Tour

Martina was amazing! We visited Tokyo the first week of May and booked the 5 hour tour. She planned out everything based on what our interests are. We learned so much from her and loved everything she showed us. We would recommend the locals tour and maybe even do the longer tour. When we visit again we will definitely be booking this tour again!

Visita fantastica

Martina è stata una host speciale. Bravissima nel seguire le nostre indicazioni e nel farci scoprire lati meno noti della città incrociandoli con la vita dei giapponesi. Puntualissima ci ha dato tanti consigli utili sui trasporti e sui ristoranti, oltre che sulle cose da vedere anche senza di lei dopo la visita. Un’esperiEnza fantastica. Grazie ancora Martina.
