We started off meeting Akira In the evening for a walking tour of the Shinjuku area. It was very interesting and we ended the evening at an outstanding Japanese restaurant that he recommended. The next day, we visited number of sites mostly by train and subway, throughout Tokyo. We saw a beautiful Japanese garden park, took a small boat down a river in Tokyo, spent considerable time at the worlds most famous Fish market, and had an outstanding sushi and sashimi lunch. He was thoughtful enough to make reservations for our group and good about making sure that we stayed on schedule. We also visited a tower with outstanding elevated views of the city and then we walked to a nearby temple. Akira’s English Is very good and he was always extremely punctual. I appreciated the fact that he stayed with our group until we got back to our final destination, because the Tokyo subway system can be confusing, especially to a foreigner. I also appreciated the fact that he was very prompt in responding to my email messages and questions. I had interaction with another triple lights tour guide who was much more challenging with respect to his responses. Overall I think the itinerary was very good. If there was one thing I might possibly change it would be the hour or so that we spent at the samurai museum. While I did find it to be interesting, I might’ve preferred a different option. Still, on balance both days were very interesting and enjoyable and I would highly recommend Akira as a tour guide. Five stars for sure! He is a nice guy and an excellent tour guide.
Dear Bradford-san, Raquel-san. Thank you for your nice review! I’m very happy to read such an encouraging message which has become a powerful incentive for me to keep a good work. I also had a great time thanks to you for two days. I was really relieved when we got back to Sakuragicho Station before 5:00, and I saw you leave there for your ship by a shuttle bus. And I was also relieved when you answered “Yes!” to my question “Are you satisfied?” at some spots. You always sent your responses quickly to my email. It helped me to prepare for the tour. Now I understand good tour comes with good communication between nice guests and me. I’ll live up to your nice comments. Thank you again for everything! I’m looking forward to seeing you again some day If you happen to have a chance to visit Japan. See you. Best regards. Akira
