Hi there! My name is Mark and I am a local host in Tokyo. I am a friendly and warm person who loves to share my city with others. I am known for my kindness, consideration, sense of humor and positive attitude. Tokyo is an amazing place to explore and I feel grateful to call it home. One of the things I love most about the city is how safe it is, which makes it easy for visitors to feel comfortable and enjoy their experience here. I am a total expert at navigating the cultural hotspots in East Tokyo, as well as hidden gems that are often missed by the crowds. I love discovering new places and sharing them with others. If you're looking for a local host who is knowledgeable, friendly and open-minded, then look no further! I would be thrilled to show you around and help make your trip to Tokyo a truly unforgettable experience.
