Akira was very informative. Met us promptly at our hotel with a nice sign printed with our name on it. This helped us identify him. He took us to all of the sites as planned and shared lots of information regarding the history of the sites and the customs. Patiently taught me over and over how to say thank you as it took me a couple of times. Had a delicious lunch as well! Definitely money well spent!!

Akira:
Thank you, Jill, Eric, Cole, and Casey. I'm sure it was torrid in Kyoto. I hope you had a good trip all the time. I'm happy to read your words. I really had a good time with you. All of you listened to me with friendly and warm attitude. You always gave warmhearted words. I'm very happy to meet nice people like your family. I really appreciate it. I wish to guide you to other places as well. If you have a chance to visit Japan some day again, I would like to help you. I'm looking forward to seeing you again. By the way, did you happen to remember "You're welcome" = "Doh-itashi-mashite" ? I better live up to your compliment by doing a good job. Take care!

“ Amazing custom tour of Tokyo with robots and architecture! ”

When we watched his video, we could see that Akira has a love for people and sharing his culture with them, and from the moment he collected us from our hotel lobby, we knew we'd made the right choice. Akira immersed us in the culture and history of Tokyo and of Japan with his vast supply of stories, facts and tips. He quickly adapted our program to meet last minute dietary needs, and gave us a personalised tour to our special requirements (robots and architecture). He also had detailed instructions for other amazing sights for us to visit for the rest of our trip, ensuring that from a 1 day tour we had enough information for a weeks adventuring! I can't imagine a better guide for our introduction to Japan and today's tour will always be a fond memory for us. Arigato gozaimas, Akira-san.

Akira:
Dear Leo-san and Alice-san. Thank you very much for your nice review. I'm very happy to read each one of your words. I'm also really happy to see nice persons like you. And I'm glad to introduce typical Japanese food, soba buckwheat noodles and you looked satisfied. This job, tour guide provides me with experiences beyond expectation. I should live up to your nice review from now on too. May the rest of your tour be with safety. I'm looking forward to seeing you again if you have another chance to be in Tokyo. Have a good sleep this evening. See you. "One, two, three, Sushi! Bye." Akira Best regards

“ Tokyo essence in just one day ”

We enjoyed very much the dynamic day we had touring around Tokyo with Akira. He organized very well all the stops such that we saw almost everything that was important - from cherry blossom Gardens to shinto temples, walking through fashion streets, wandering around the Emperor's Gardens, admiring Buddist temples to end up in a the Governamental Builing sky scrapper to enjoy the wonderful view of Tokyo by night. He also took into consideration out wishes and we moved through the city at our own pace-which meant walking almost 20km that day! But he made it very interesting by sharing with us details about the Japanese culture, history, religion and customs. Absolutely reccomended! Thank you very much Akira, we have a very beatiful memory of our day together in Tokyo!

Akira:
Dear Mihaela-san and Patrick-san. Thank you for everything on April 16th and thank you for sending nice review. I had a great time with you the whole day. You were very lucky to see beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom even in mid-April. We had to queue at the cutlet restaurant for lunch and at Tokyo Government observatory because it's Sunday, but it became a good experience. Thank you again and I'm looking forward to seeing you again.

“ Excellent guide ”

Akira san was our guide when we were in Tokyo early April 2017. Before our visit, he was prompt and meticulous in communicating with us and planning our one day Trip around Tokyo with him. He was keen to show us as much as one could do in a day and chose attractions with input from us - understanding our interests and matching them with the itinerary he prepared. As most Japanese do, he put his heart and soul into doing the best. We will highly recommend him.

Akira:
Dear Anil-san. Thank you very much for writing the review. It is an honor I do not deserve. I will do my best to live up to your cordial words from now on too. I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you again.

“ Educated erudite tour guide in Tokyo ”

Met Akira online. We had only 2 full days on our visit so we opted for a guide both days all day. No car so we took many expensive taxis to save time. Akira was terrific. A retired English teacher with good language skills. He was so much more than a simple tour guide. We peppered him with a questions from history to current events. He took us to fish market and usual sights, we were there during peak cherry blossom season. Ate sushi with him for very first time in his fav place. Outstanding. Highly recommended.

Akira:
Dear Frank-san and Cindy-san. Thank you so much for everything and your cordial words. You really listened to me very carefully. This really became a good experience for me because you asked me various kinds of questions. I'm so happpy that you could enjoy cherry blossoms in full bloom and enjoyed sushi. If you have another chance to visit Japan, I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you again.

“ Visiting small lanes. ”

We enjoyed the 3 days with Akira showing us some amazing places around Tokyo. Akira was very pleasant and obliging. Would like to catch up another time. Trevor San and Jill San.

Akira:
Dear Trevor-san and Jill-san. Thank you for everything and your nice words for me. I think I have to live up to your encouraging words. I like your jokes and pictures. If you have a chance to visit Japan again, I'd like to guide you again. I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you again.
