Gary Wang Private tour guide in Tokyo, Chiba, Yokohama - Japan

Gary Wang

Guide profile:

Greetings! I would be your NO.1 tour guide for many reasons. Like you, I was once a tourist and after settling in Japan for 9 years, I have a deep insight of not only what a tourist would like to see and also can introduce the places only locals would know. I have lived in Taiwan and NZ before moving to Japan so I can show you around in English or Mandarin.

I have traveled all over Japan and discovered many hidden places that you would not find on the typical guidebook. I am always on top of what's happening in the city so be sure to see some events that are only available on the day of your tour. I can take you to see the seasonal/ special event that is on the day of your visit. With my tour, you can enjoy the culture, festivals, shopping, delicious foods and the experience of a Japanese life. I can put together a customized itinerary just for you. Feel free to get in touch with me to plan it out together :)

Gary was my guide for 4 days in Tokyo when I visited from New York City in October.

He is great to spend the day with, and knows exactly where to take you, even if your interests tend to be obscure. He's reliable, organized, and a good communicator. He met me at my AIRbnb and knew all the best places in every neighborhood. He also showed me how to get around on my own using the subway etc, so that I could explore the city on my own.

Transportation by tour guide:

The best way to experience Tokyo is by train and on foot, there are so many hidden spots that are not accessible by car. A rental car can be arranged upon request but I would recommend it for places outside of Tokyo like Hakone, Mt Fuji and Yamanashi etc. Please cover for my transportation fee depending on your choice of transport.

Tour guide interests:

I'm a foodie and I'd like to explore the city to find food and tastes that can surprise my taste bud. Any station we're at, trust I can recommend you somewhere good. I also like to explore the hidden corners and alleys in Tokyo so my tour is usually not just walking through the main streets. It's a great way to experience the sub-cultures that way. My other interests include architecture, design, exotic plants, photography and anime. I can also be your photographer for the day and send you an album after to remember the great memories of the trip.
