Akira made our visit to Tokyo very special. He was a pleasure to deal with planning the day, and was very responsive to our wants and needs. I requested a tour of the Diet Building and he arranged it so we could see inside the beautiful building and the legislative chambers. Our visit to the Fish Market was an amazing experience and Akira guided us thru an excellent lunch at a market sushi bar. ...
My family of four (including our boys, ages 11 and 13) plus our two friends had the pleasure of spending a full day in Tokyo with Akira. He planned the itinerary for the day and made great suggestions. My favorite part of the day was visiting the fish market. It was handy to have Akira with us because he knew how to get into the inner market, which was the best part, and he arranged a beautiful...
We had the pleasure of Akira's company for 2 days. My family and I went to Meiji, Asakusa, Harajuku, Kamakura and more. He was very accommodating and made sure everybody was comfortable and enjoying the sights. Thank you for sharing Japans history and traditions with us. The children especially enjoyed your quizes and prizes at end of the day. Communication with him before the tour started was gre...
Thank you for a wonderful day, Akira. We enjoyed going to Meiji Jingu Shrine and Sensoji Temple. Thank you for explaining the history, rituals and contrast between them. We very much enjoyed the gardens we went to and sharing time having tea and a sweet in the tea house. It is so wonderful that there are calm places for people to enjoy within Tokyo and also busy places to invigorate as well. Thank...
We recently spent two days with Akira in and around Tokyo. He is a fantastic guide. We had private tours with our family of four (two teenage boys). Akira planned the tour and his advice was perfect. The sites included major temples and shrines and Akira was able to keep us engaged despite the long days. For English speakers, Akira speaks very fluent English. My boys throughly enjoyed spendi...
I spent an enjoyable afternoon and evening tour with Akira in the Shinjuku. We visited a number of the "hidden" sites and areas that without Akira's familiarity I would not have found. Highlight was the Samaarai Museum, a nighttime visit atop of the Metropolitan Building, and dinner at a small eatery--5 seats--sampling local fare. Akira was a great companion!
Akira is a very caring person, he gave me good advices on our itinerary and he is attention to details. He is proactive too, and responded appropriately to our requests. He would like to make sure everyone of us is happy. He is honest, he has the heart to guide the tour.
During the preparation stage, when my car company was not responding to my request on our rental driver and car, he helped me...
Akira is such a patient, heart warming, caring and a very hospitable guide.
He is very proactive in his approach towards ensuring that you are comfortable with the itinerary and makes the effort to keep in touch with you from the time you engage his services right up to the last day.
He has made my family, friends & I feel so welcome and at ease.
Thank you Akira-San for such a wonderful ...
