“ Spent a couple of days with Akira ”

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 ... read more


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... read more

“ Best Tour Guide Ever!!! ”

Akira was the best Tour Guide ever! Very helpful, patient, caring and friendly. Speaks very good English! You’ll be comfortable with Akira after the first few minutes of introductions. I asked to modify our itinerary at the last minute due to the heat/humidity and he was happy to accommodate us. He was very organized and efficient with our time. We went to Tsukiji and Asakusa with the water bus in between. He provided interesting facts throughout the day and was very good with our 10 year old son. I jokingly told my wife that our son must be comfortable with Akira because we were in some pretty dense crowds, we got slightly separated and our son stayed with Akira-San instead of us. He even went back with us to our hotel to make sure we got back safely and assisted us at the train s... read more


Dear Gary-san, Naomi-san & sweet Joshua-kun. Naomi-san, have you got invigorated from jet lag yet? Thank you so much for your super good review! I’m indescribably happy to receive it! One of the most impressive things is that I learned that parents really love their son through your behavior. It reminds me of my days back when my son and I enjoyed mountain climbing when he was 10 years old. Joshua is so cute and he did a nice job when answering some of my questions. I’m so happy to see a nice people like your family. I really hope you also have a nice experience for the rest of the tour! Enjoy a little bit different atmosphere and temperature in Kyoto as well. I’m looking forward to seeing you if you happen to have a chance to visit Japan again some day. I’d like to keep up the ... read more

“ Very nice man ”

Akira was a very nice guide He started by giving us a little welcome gift which we thought was very nice. He was very accommodating in changing our tour schedule His English was exceptable , He always seemed concerned about us , always made sure we were on train before he got on, never ran ahead. Knew answers to most of our questions at lunch asked permission before he ordered And thanked us after. I would recommend Akira for a tour in Japan We had a very enjoyable day in Tokyo


Dear Alan-san, Andrea-san. Thank you very much for a cordial review. It has become an nice incentive to me. I had a very good time with you. You listened to my stories carefully and tried to answer my questions with interest. And also you taught me English words which were new to me. I’ll never forget you and this experience. If you happen to have a chance to visit Tokyo again someday, I’d like to see you again. Thank you very much again. Enjoy your daily life in the Palmetto State! Best regards. Akira
