“ A wonderful experience ”

Akira is a very caring person, he gave me good advices on our itinerary and he is attention to details. He is proactive too, and responded appropriately to our requests. He would like to make sure everyone of us is happy. He is honest, he has the heart to guide the tour. During the preparation stage, when my car company was not responding to my request on our rental driver and car, he helped me call the car company staff. Akira is an outstanding person, especially for his caring and attention to details character. Thank you so much, we look forward to seeing you again in Japan!

“ 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.

“ 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!
