Whether it be
Jumping on board a salvaged 'mamachari' bicycle for a casual cycling, walking and food experience through the backstreets and eclectic local neighbourhoods of Nakano, Koenji and Asagaya.
Loosening your belt buckle and and exploring the urban landscapes, dingy backstreets, neighbourhood drawcards and mouthwatering cuisine of the inner west on a Tokyo Street Food Jaunt.
Darting through the crooked backstreets, congested sidewalks and tranquil riverside bike paths of Nakano, Suginami, Musashino and Mitaka on a vintage Japanese road bike, meticulously handcrafted by a master frame builder.
Pulling up a bar stool at a hole-in-the-wall izakaya along the atmospheric JR Chuo Line and rubbing shoulders with inquisitive locals.
Bouncing between neighbourhood attractions with the family and feasting on a no fuss Japanese bento lunch together in the park.

Hi, I’m Andy
Hailing from Melbourne Australia, my young family and I reside in the laidback but eclectic neighbourhood of Koenji, Tokyo.
I have a passion for outdoor expeditions, Japanese bicycle restoration, a hot bowl of ramen, a cold beer and exploring the endless local treasures, personalities and culinary delights scattered throughout this bewildering city.
As an avid traveller, I’ve always found myself shying away from organised tours, particularly the large group variety.
Rehashed itineraries glued to the tourist trail.
Visits to uninspiring attractions and restaurants the tour operator has a mutual relationship with.
The general sensation of being dragged around on a leash.
I launched DIG Tokyo Tours as an alternative to this tour model, with the aim of crafting no fuss, immersive local experiences that I’m proud to associate with my name and reputation.
So jump on a bike or join me on foot in experiencing a less travelled side of the city that I call home.
I hope to see you out and about in the streets of Tokyo soon and best of luck with those travel plans!
