Hi! my name is Taiji, I'm living in Tokyo.
Before that I used to live in Paris and spent 16 years of my youth, so I'm alright with French too.
I’m set here since college because I was fascinated by the Japanese subculture; game manga and electronic devices. I guess I had the same kind of passion just like the younger generation of foreign guys who are fans of Japan. Then my interests shifted into history, traditional cultures and to discover the mysterious Japanese mind that made me become a bigger fan and a guide.

My activity is of course taking you to sightseeing, telling about our history and providing you information so you can have a better idea and image about our country. I'll take you to the best picturesque places and eat well, but at the same time I'd be also concerned to know about your background. I’m sure that I’ll be asking you questions to have a better understanding of your culture and history, find the differences or what we are actually having in common, because I think this is the best way to keep our souvenirs long and fresh.

    See Mt Fuji's stunning view points and hot spring in Hakone

    See Mt Fuji's stunning view points and hot spring in Hakone It's easy to get lost in everything there is to do in Tokyo and to get caught in the big city stress, just remember, like me and my friends did, that there are beautiful mountain ranges just an hour or so out from Tokyo. So we made the decision to get a closer view of Mt Fuji and other highlights in the area. With a pretty small price difference (depending on how many you are) the clear choice were for us to go with our own guide instead of having to run around catching buses and being more limited.
    Taiji is really a great guy who picks you up and drops you off were you live. He is fluent in english which is actually a rare commodity in Japan as per my experience. He drove us around all day and we had great talks about history and Japanese traditions. We got to see beautiful sites, eat a great local lunch and last but not least bath in a refreshing onsen (hot spring). When we got home we were all really happy we went and diversed our travels in and around Tokyo.

    Private charter tour to Nikko & Edo Wonderland or hot spring

    Private charter tour to Nikko & Edo Wonderland or hot spring Nikko is beautiful and our guide, Mr. Tom Harada, was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. A big plus for our family was his constant offer to take our pictures which he then emailed to me even before our tour was over. We also had an excellent driver, Mytoshi.

    Edo Wonderland was a lot of fun, especially the Ninja show. Our only regret was not having enough time here but we wouldn’t have wanted to give up seeing the Toshogu shrine or skipping the great steak lunch we had where we got to try Tochigi beef. Over-all, it was a good tour, but if you have time, it may be better to spread Nikko over 2 days.

    Visit Fuji Gotemba Premium Outlet and relax in a hot spring

    Visit Fuji Gotemba Premium Outlet and relax in a hot spring Taji was punctual and was already waiting for us at the hotel lobby.
    He was accomodating and flexible in the itinerary and ensure that we were able to view the Mount Fuji clearly even to an extent of taking an unconventional route such that we could have a spectacular view of Fuji.
    The journey in the vehicle is kid-entertaining by playing cartoons in the vehicle such that kids can enjoy the long journey.
    We would strongly recommend Taji for your Fuji trip.

    See Mt Fuji's stunning view points and hot spring in Hakone

    See Mt Fuji's stunning view points and hot spring in Hakone We booked a Mt Fuji tour for 7 April. The booking through Voyagin was very smooth. Our tour guide, Taiji was very responsive to our queries prior to the tour. It was a pleasant surprise to us that Taiji is very fluent in both English and French, which I must say is quite rare to come by in Japan. Too bad for us that we experienced bad weather conditions on the morning of the tour; Lake Ashi never looked so choppy before according to Taiji! Through his suggested alternative sites, we still managed to have an enjoyable time. We has a delicious lunch of Hoto noodles which is a speciality of the area. The onsen he brought us to was especially good as it had both indoor and outdoor pools. We would certainly recommend Taiji's services and won't hesitate to use his services again.
