“ One-day personalized tour of Tokyo! ”

Akira was an outstanding and fun tour guide for our trip to Tokyo! His English was very good and he was prompt in meeting us at our hotel. It was our first time to Tokyo and we weren't sure if we had needed a tour guide, but we are very glad we chose to do so. Akira was very accommodating to the places we wanted to visit and showed us how to navigate the train and subway system, which is very confusing if you don't know how to read Japanese. It definitely helped us with the rest of our trip when we were on our own. He came prepared with a portable white board and have us a crash course on the Japanese language which was very cool. I think we ended up saving a lot of time because of all the insight he provided us, compared to if we had done it on our own. It left us more time to explore Tokyo on our own efficiently and make the most use of our time. He also recommended a lot of great restaurants which we would have never been able to find on our own, even when we had bought several Tokyo books. We highly recommend Akira!

AKIRA:
Elizabeth, I am so glad you enjoyed the day. It was so nice to see you and Austin never lost excitement about everything that you experienced during the tour (Sushi in Tsukiji, the magnets, the written fortune and etc...) and It was my pleasure to work for wonderful people like two of you. I am wishing that this trip to Japan will be the memorable one and you would come back, with your beautiful kids next time! Akira

“ Akira is awesome! ”

Our family which includes six kids (ages 7-16) had an amazing time with Akira. First, he is VERY responsive during the planning stages. Akira had wonderful recommendations yet was very accommodating to our ideas. Next, he planned ahead and purchased tickets for us in order to expedite our plans and ensured we had as much time as possible to tour not stand in line. Akira was so detailed oriented. He showed up at our apartment and already had memorized all the kid's names, had print-outs of maps, train schedules, etc. all in a folder for us. Akira even knew our dietary preferences and recommended the perfect restaurants. We proceeded to have a super efficient day. Akira was also so helpful to ensure that the rest of our plans in Tokyo were made and that we had all the right directions, etc. Lastly, I commend Akira on his honesty and integrity. Unknown to us, one of our tours actually cost less than we had pre-paid and at the end of the tour, Akira handed us the savings. He could have easily pocketed this money and we would have never known. We made a new friend in Akira and strongly recommend him.

Matt, It was my pleasure to work for Garret family. I am so happy to hear that you, Jana, Sam, Matt, Drew, John, Simon, and Grace enjoyed the day we spend together. I was so happy to see everyone wearing Kimono with happy smile and laugh enjoying tea ceremony and I really enjoyed taking pictures of Garrets during that time. Kimono-clad Garrets were all handsome and beautiful. I am so glad you like the foods at the "local" restaurant. That were the foods many of common people in Japan today may have. Thank you very much for your interested in my country and culture. I am wishing that this Japan trip will be the memorable one. Akira

“ Soo accommodating and knowledgeable ”

I should start by saying Akira is professional at his craft. He communicates prior to arrival to confirm he arranges the perfect day for his guests. We are a family of 4 with two kids, 8 and 10 so our ideas for fun probably a little different than most. He was great at adjusting and playing along with our family. We booked him twice!

AKIRA:
Ken-san Thank you very much for your comment. I am glad that you enjoyed the tour. How did you like the bullet train ride? I can imagine that you are having wonderful Okonomiyaki dinner with your wonderful family. I am wishing that you, Leah, Jules, and Sid will have a wonderful time in Hiroshima and Kyoto! Thank you! Akira

“ Great guide - flexible and helpful! ”

We booked tours with Akira for 2.5 days. He suggested an itinerary for all days and we were able to adjust it before the trip. We really enjoyed our time in Japan and Akira was a part of that! During the trip, we realized that it would take longer to visit certain places (because my parents are older and walk slowly), so he would adjust our itinerary on the fly and make sure we still saw the important sights. He was very patient and helpful - he would look for the escalators and elevators in the train stations to make the walk easier for my parents too! If you're looking for someone to show you around without worrying about how to get to and from places, just book with Akira!! The only tip for improvement I'd have is maybe Akira can explain things more - sometimes he'd only explain things when we'd ask questions :)

AKIRA:
Thank you very much for your warm message, Kellda san. It was my preasure to work for you and your wonderful family, Roger-san, Nina-san, Mark-san and Keila-san. I was worried a little that if the tour was hard for your parents (especially on rainy 2nd day...) but I am so happy that you all really enjoyed your time in Tokyo. Thank you very much for the tip for improvement that I will always keep it in mind. I hope you will come back again someday, and discover more about my strange, funny and beautiful country and people. Dewa Mata! Akira
