Hi everyone, my name is Nicolas Wauters and I’m the founder of Tokyo Trip.
The Tokyo Trip adventure started in 2013 on a simple idea of offering walks through Tokyo and other places of Japan. Walks that would be different from those offered by common tour guides or paper tour guides to be able to offer a custom made day tour (or more) the feeling of “As you live there" to the most curious travelers.
I would never imagine that a simple website created from my apartment in Tokyo would grow up this way. Through the years, my services were offered to many travel agencies and I was able to guide hundreds of travelers in a year in the capital city and through Japan. The goal has never changed, to share this passion for Japan with you.
More than just sharing my passion for Japan, this adventure gave me the chance to meet many travelers, take part in unforgettable experiences with them and build some friendship links. Thanks to all the members for the shown trust.
After a decade of growing my activities in Japan and having done over a thousand tours (A one day tour in Tokyo, a stay through Japan or even having been part of the Olympic Games of Tokyo by helping Belgian reporters), my team and I grew some experience we would be glad to share with you during your next stay in the country.
Having mastered the tour guide activities, it belongs to me to overcome "the cliché" of Japan. These don't reflect the beauty of the country and the kindness of its inhabitants.
Our goal is to offer you a high quality service, adapted to your will and preferences by easing your stay in this wonderful country.
We can’t wait to meet you in Tokyo and other cities in Japan.
Since 2013 we have walked over 35.000 km to discover Tokyo...
And even more if we add the train and car travels...
Growing since its creation, we have increased the number of tours through the years and have made about 2.200 tours in Japan.
Even by doing only private tours since 2013, we could have the chance to meet 7.000 travellers and hope we could share them our love of Japan as following that they speak about it to their surroundings...
