What you'll do

You want to take a picture with the famous red gates at the shrine in Kyoto, but don't have time to visit Kyoto? Good news, we have them here in Tokyo! You want to wander around a residential/downtown neighborhood to have a sense of what life of a Tokyo local is like, but don't know where to go to or is worried about getting lost? No, worries! You'll love the atmosphere and the energies of an outdoor market but haven't come across one in Tokyo? We've got that too! You've seen videos of crazy food samples from Japan but is in doubt of whether it actually looks real? That was me till I saw them! I am a travel enthusiast. I have traveled to over 55 countries, and these are basically the types of things I want to see and do when I travel - see what's not on the first 30 pages of guidebooks, travel like I'm a local, see things I would never see elsewhere, meet new people, make new friends and learn/exchange ideas with them. I am not only excited to show you the hidden alleys of Tokyo and to share what I know about Tokyo and Japan, but I am also excited to learn about your countries and cultures through you. Come share the experience with me!

I am a travel enthusiast and have traveled to over 55 countries and regions. What I love about traveling is that I get to meet new people, make new friends, and learn from them and their countries, cultures. That's probably the most enriching and the most eye-opening part/experience of traveling. I am excited to have the opportunity to share my knowledge about Japan, Tokyo - its culture, history, people, cuisine etc. - and to learn from you. I kind of get to travel by being at home! How cool is that? I would gladly give your travel tips to make sure that you have an awesome time here!
