Tokyoai is a private guide service designed by Tokyo expert, Hiroko Yabuki, and is unique for having a well-known food/ lifestyle journalist, who writes for major Tokyo magazines, as the guide. All the tours are tailor-made for you and include must-see spots, as well as little known local favorites. Let’s explore Tokyo together! ai = eye (目) and love (愛). Tokyoai is a name full of love and respect to the great city of Tokyo :)
