Guests and collaborators extend warm wishes on’s first anniversary

Following the one year anniversary of the launch of yesterday, birthday wishes have come pouring in from all over the planet (Earth) from Maction Planet Tokyo Private Tour guests, Maction Planet Apparel designers and our expert collaborators. So, without further ado, here they are:   

“Congratulations on your first anniversary. It’s been a blast to be a part of the journey. Let’s keep up the large for year 2 and beyond.”

Royce Leong, Maction Planet Resident DJ

“It’s been a few years now since we experienced Tokyo with Mac from Maction Planet as our Guide. These days I am working in Chiang Mai with ROC Jewellery. A unique company crafting jewellery from real flowers and leaves. Recently we were delighted to be invited for an interview with Maction Planet to chat about our work and how the nature and seasons of Japan and Tokyo inspire us and to reminisce about our time in Tokyo with Maction Planet.  We still have such great memories of the sights, stories, fun and food we enjoyed during those few days.  Now it is fantastic to listen to their radio show to revisit Tokyo and discover more about their fascinating culture and amazingly undiscovered music scene. Dreaming about another visit to Tokyo one day to show our children around with a Maction Planet family tour. “

Chris Steele, Head of Online Retail for ROC Jewellery

“It’s only been one year?! Maction Planet has already done so much, and it’s been a thrill to be along for the ride.  From plugging my ultra-niche shochu nerdiness into his bespoke tours to planning our second annual craft beer and shochu party in Yoyogi Park, it’s clear that the MP team always has its eyes fixed on the horizon. They’re always looking for what new experiences they can create for their customers. I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for our partnership!”

Christopher Pellegrini, CEO of Shochu.Pro

“Mac! Congratulations on the first anniversary! It’s an honor to work with you! It can sometimes be tough, but I knew you would be successful because you are a hard worker and extremely passionate about what you do. Looking forward to working together for many years to come. Kanpai!”

Yayu Wang, Founder of Yayaland Studio and Maction Planet Photography partner

“”As someone who has lived in Tokyo for over 4 years, Mac showed me worlds I never knew existed in this wonder city we call home. He knows his stuff and is passionate about sharing his wealth of knowledge on his one-of-a-kind tours.”

Chris Nilghe, Founder of TDR Explorer

They also tackle the important questions, like “Where do Pikachus go when they finish dancing?”
