I recomend Gaku, he is a great guy, I spent one of my best days in japan with him and his friends :D, we did a lot of things, such as: Akihabara, Maid Cafe, Hanamy Party, Karakore.
also we ate ramen and takoyaki!
If you are thinking to visit japan, you have to choose for Gaku :D.

Thanks Gaku & Shon for taking us to Shibuya which was such a amazing place for shopping and especially The Takeshita Street where we had bought many cheap & quality clothing, we enjoy very much with them.

By doing Apps searching from my mobile phone, I found "Meetrip and started to have email communications with Gaku prior my trip regarding what I want and what he can do for me. Gaku is very helpful and I am glad to meet his friend Shun too.

The experience I gained during this tour is far exceeded the cost of the tour. It's good to know that how Meetrip works and the rational behind this project.

As I do not have friends in Tokyo and I want to know more about the culture, the country from a different channel. I found that Meetrip may be a good and safe way on having such extraordinary experience.

Through Meetrip I have chance to meet local friends like Gaku and Shun. We exchanged ideas from different country/culture point of view and how we grow up differently during the interaction during our conversation in the tour.

Gaku is ambition and passion. He took good care of me. We treated each other as a new friend instead of the relationship as a tour leader and tour member. Both of us learned a lot from each other after the tour.

I highly recommend "Meetrip" to those who look for a extraordinary travel experience, especially for those places, sometimes people may already getting tired of it. I will continue to participle "Meetrip" if I planned to go to the "Meetrip" available cities.

I think the photos show that we all have fun today.

Gaku was awesome! He woke up extra early on a Saturday so we could go visit the Tsukiji Fish Market. We had a lovely early lunch together at Asakusa and visited the Sensoji Temple. After, we traveled to Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka. I felt sick and Gaku was so considerate during the whole mini-fiasco. I really appreciated his patience and kindness. I highly recommend Gaku for any Tokyo travel needs! Thanks Gaku!

Thank you very much for the guide to museum, meal in Shinjuku, good view on the top of city hall (I’m glad it’s free!) and shopping, walking near明治神宮(although it was already closed) in Harajuku, my friend and I really had a great day with you!


I like Totoro and animation made by Hayao Miyazaki since my childhood, when i saw Gaku provides this activity and can help me to buy the ticket, i was so excited since although I've already been to Tokyo many times, I couldn't get a chance to get reserved ticket, every time was sold out!! ><
The museum is located near a big and beautiful park, we took bus from subway station to the museum (if it’s real cat bus, it will be better) and Hayao Miyazaki lived there before, that made me can imagine he is drawing and creating a fantastic story in front of me!

After visiting museum, we went to find something to eat and walked around, it was good to have Gaku because “communication” is always a problem for me to find good food and place in Japan… thanks Gaku and I’ll definitely ask my friend to book Gaku’s tour if they go to Japan!!

Thanks Gaku for taking me to a good curry lunch. He is pretty nice and good at English. By the way, I think he maybe as crazy as me who is willing to try something"dangerous"~I mean truly spicy food...haha

Gaku and Kei met me for dinner my first night in Tokyo and they brought me to eat traditional Japanese Okonomiyak which was delicious! They were so kind and brought me somewhere I probably never would have found on my own. Thank you Gaku!

We had a wonderfull, wide Tokyo style Saturday night with Gaku & his friends in Shinjuku. Good food & nice people!!! After dinner karaokee party - surley the best experience ever in Tokyo on our last night!!!

My friend and I met up with Gaku in Shibuya to go eat sushi.
It was my friend's first time in Tokyo - and Gaku was a great guide! We had a fantastic time at sushi, got to walk around Shibuya quite a bit, get desert, and take purikura.

Gaku is really, really nice - I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone that wants to have a nice, chill time!
Thanks Gaku!

I and Gaku had Korean food in Korean Town 'Shin-okubo' in Tokyo, it was so fun! Although I am in Japan, I felt South Korea! I felt the two countries at a time! It is interesting and new experience!

I had a dinner at Rotation Sushi with Gaku and his friend Guncha (sorry, if the spelling is wrong).They are both cheerful, curious and patient. Thanks for your tolerant abou how i use chopsticks. Delicious foods and surprising delivery of the restaurant, it was totally nice experience. Recommend to all.

I had the best time on my first Meetrip with Gaku! We went to a very unique seafood restaurant in Shinjuku where you can grill your own food! All of the sashimi was also really good, very Japanese, which was exactly what I wanted! Gaku is so fun and nice, we had a great time! he speaks pretty good english too which is a plus!!

hey Gaku!. Thanks for guiding me @ Ryougoku. I've never been to there before even tough i came from Mongolia. I sometimes pass by The Kokugikan but i never went there to see what is inside in it.So this time was a good experience for me. Next time i want to see a sumo wrestlers during their training. Nabe near Ryogoku.

We had a great lunch at a very local restaurant. We had the specialty that is only available in the restaurant. Really delicious! And then we went to a small local ice cream shop, so cute and tasty! Gaku is super nice and a great host. I would definitely recommend this activity!
