“ Awesome Afternoon with ”

We were in Tokyo for company team building and hired Akira to be our tour guide for a half day tour in Tokyo. We also booked bus from another bus company since we're a large group of 11 people. We learnt a great deal from Akira who kindly explained Tokyo's incredible history (as we drove around imperial garden), Japan's religions (as we visited Asakusa Temple and Meiji Shrine). We also went to Tokyo Tower in the evening where we were greeted with a beautiful night view of the city. Coordination was tough at first because I only had sporadic internet access while in Tokyo and was not able to reply consistently. I would like to thank Akira for being patient with us! I highly recommend Akira to anyone interested to learn a great deal about Japan's rich history and culture.

Akira:
Hello. Germaine san. How are you? I've missed you. I really appreciate your compliments. All of you listened to me very eagerly and with a lot of interest when I was explaining Japanese history, culture, and other miscellaneous things. I'm very happy to have this opportunity to guide 11 international people and meet a nice person like you. I definitely would like you to call me and I'd like to guide you if you have a chance to visit Japan and have a tour again. I must live up to your wonderful compliments from now on. Thank you very much for your review again. Please take a look at that porcelain-crane sometimes. May your work be full of much excitement and success!

“ 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.

“ Tokyo fish market ”

Akira picked us up at our hotel and personally guided us through the subway and took us to the fish market, walked us through the inner and outer market and showed us many interesting foods and was very informative. Then he took us to an outstanding sushi restaurant for lunch, which was not expensive. He took the group to Asakusa and then a boat ride. He was very informative and caring. We would recommend him for this tour.

Akira:
Hello, Charles-san and Karen-san. Thank you for sending your review for the tour. I'm so happy to read your too many nice things about me. I myself had a good time guiding the nice people like you. I understand everyone of you has a high interest to Japanese culture. All of you enjoyed freshly made sushi just in front of the sushi chef. That was so good, wasn't it? I felt sad when I had to say goodbye to you and you hugged me tightly in the middle of the tour at Tsukiji Fish Market, but I enjoyed the latter half of the tour with the other people including your brother. They seemed to be enjoying Japanese Gardens, match-tea with Japanese sweets, cruising along the river and Asakusa Kannon Temple. I hope to guide you to some nice spots in or around Tokyo if you have a chance to visit Japan again. I have to live up to your nice words as a guide. Thank you again. I really appreciate you. May you and your family and your friends be happy. With my best regards.
