Hi there!
There are lots of local Izakayas and other delicious restaurants in Tokyo, but unfortunately, they are likely not to have English menus nor English speaking staffs.
My partner and I will take you to such places and support your interactions with local culture. I would love to give you some recommendations on the menu as well.
Let's have a fun time diving into local culture in Japan, and have a great conversation together!

[Available day and time]
Every day after 6:30 PM
* Some days may not be available due to the host’s schedule.

[Cost Includes]
- Guidance fee
- We will split the bill. The host pays for own food & meal, no need to pay for the host.

[Request from the host]
We have just started this BE A LOCAL service in Hub Japan and trying to collect pictures and comments of the guests to put on our website and SNS pages. So we will ask you to be in few pictures on the day, and also ask you for some comments from you.

Hi, I'm Mari.
I have been living in Tokyo more than ten years and I think I know around Tokyo pretty much.
I am a user experience designer and looking for chances to meet new friends and get new perspectives. I used to work for a web marketing company and now I am a member of Hub Japan team.
I have lived in Spain, Mexico, U.S., and Canada, so I speak both English and Japanese fluently. I love to eat and exchange topics about different cultures. I hope I can make many new friends through my plans!
