Welcome to Tokyo! Tokyo is a huge city with cutting-edge technology; however it retains many traditional places. Tokyoites are very modern; however they follow many traditional events. I like Japanese history and meeting people. Also, I’m interested in cultural exchange. I’m so happy to guide and introduce you to unique Japanese history, culture and lifestyle. I could take you places off-the-beaten track as well as to must-see spots. Let’s enjoy and explore Tokyo together with a variety of foods and unique cultural experiences!!
