About the Founder

Japan Localized was founded in 2017 by the passionate traveller, Dai.

After 12 years in financial services as a finance marketer, Dai redirected his passion for Japan and skill in marketing to the tourism industry.

Having travelled around the world extensively, Dai would see the same generic experiences offered to visitors and tourists - it occured to him that there must be a better way to really explore a new place. This inspired Dai to start offering walking tours in his native Tokyo where he would reveal the hidden gems of the city - offering a unique and personal experience not found in guidebooks or on the internet.

This was the start of the guiding principal of Japan Localized - through personalised tours offered by people who live in Japan he wants to change the way we visit, explore and experience this remarkable country and its diverse cities.
