“ From tour guide to family friend! The amazing Akira-san. ”

I came with my wife and 6 year old daughter to Japan for the first time. Similarly it was our first tour in Japan and I feel very fortunate to have met Akira-san as our guide. From the moment we met him at the lobby, my family was very well looked after. We had been chatting over a few emails before our tour, so when we finally met, it was like meeting a good friend. Akira-san got along very well with my daughter and took us for amazing sushi at Tsukiji market. We also visited several historical attractions and gained so much knowledge on Japan’s wonderful history. Though I have read a lot about the places before my trip, nothing compares to having Akira-san’s personal and informative lessons to give us deeper understanding to appreciate the attractions even more. He even went out of his way to show us more places since we got along so well. By the end of the tour, it was hard to say goodbye since my family had developed a personal attachment to his very fatherly figure. Without doubt I will definitely recommend Akira san to anyone visiting Japan.

Akira.S:

Hello Abilash-san. I hope everyone is well. I appreciate your nice review. I’m greatly honored by your kind words that have motivated me much more to be a guide. I really had a great time with such a friendly family. The fact that you learned about Japanese history, culture, and so on beforehand really surprised me and at the same time helped me be a guide. Thanks to that, I felt more rewarded while I explained something at each site because you could understand many things easily. I’m so glad you had a wonderful experience during your stay in Japan. I hope to see you again. Thank you again for everything! Best regards, Akira
