About Tokyo Localized Walking Tours

The most impressive memories of your travels are not those in the heavily populated tourist areas, nor what you eat at the famous restaurants; instead it is meeting with the locals and having some local experiences – this is the only way to really see a place and experience its culture and history. 

Run by Locals!

Tokyo Localized is run by locals who want to show travellers what Tokyo is really like; to explore the hidden beauty of this wonderful city from the perspective of those that live and work here.

Dai founded Tokyo Localized to provide just this. Having travelled all around the world he loves to provide a unique experience to travellers having much experience of this himself. He decided to share his love and passion for Tokyo by providing free walking tours to give travellers the chance to experience something different.
