Hi there! I'm Venese, a local host in the amazing city of Tokyo. I've called this bustling metropolis my home for the past 10 years, and I'm passionate about everything it has to offer. One of my favorite things to do is immerse myself in Tokyo's thriving nightlife scene, and I love nothing more than sharing my experiences with others. Originally from Hong Kong and Australia, I bring a unique perspective to life in Tokyo, and I'm an expert at introducing first-time visitors to this fascinating city. I was even featured and guided on the 4x Emmy Award Winning TV show Global Passport. I have a wealth of experience hosting guests from all over the world, and I know exactly what it takes to make their stay in Tokyo unforgettable. In a city as big as Tokyo, it's always exciting to meet new people and explore new places. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience the best of what this city offers, and that's why I'm so passionate about showing it off. So, whether you're here for a short or a long visit, let me be your guide to the best of what Tokyo offers. I'm confident you'll fall in love with this city just like I. I can't wait to share my passion and expertise with you!
