Designing private memorable days in Tokyo and beyond
I am Lionel Dersot, a French national in Tokyo since 1985.
I design private days of discovery in Tokyo first and nearby destinations, for those travelers oftenly not enthusiastic with the ready-made tourists attractions and so called experiences churned out from destinations databases and algorithmic recommendations.
My 35+ years living in Tokyo and keen awareness of what authenticity means beat any chat GOT or aggregated statistical results of search queries. I also beat Google Maps as a selective flâneur.
I offer a different take on private custom travels uniquely designed to your envies, including those you may not be aware of yet when it comes to Japan.
I design custom private only itineraries based on sensible knowledge of Japan, visited destinations I would recommend to family members as well as to you, future visitors. Custom design means itineraries discussed together and fine tuned to your preferences and matters of interest, including those interests you may not be yet aware of, but excluding the standard overtpuristic destinations and attractions you can perform very easily on your own without a guide.
Planning starts with dialogue, inviting you to evoke what Japan inspires you, how Japan speaks to you and the style of travel you favor. My task is to build around your wishes. I do the planning and the leading, including remote concierge guiding and support as needed. I am confident you will love the experience even for a single day.
My expert territories start with Tokyo inner city, but also the wonderful Western green countryside of the capital city that allows to disengage from the urban grind for a day of discovery, or just relaxing. I am very much into gastronomy, food products that matter and the food experience destinations from the humble to the exclusive. Comfort, relaxation and access to beauty are essential ingredients to make your days in Japan unforgetable. I seriously take these into account when designing your days and help you avoid what can be avoided.
