As first-time visitors to Japan, we were very fortunate to choose Aki as our guide. We wanted to see Tsukiji fish market and Hamrikyu Garden on the first day of our trip, and thought a private tour with a guide would also help to orientate ourselves in Tokyo. From the moment Aki met us at our hotel, his friendly helpful manner and excellent English put us at ease as he helped us navigate the crowded train system and streets during our tour. Aki was very knowledgeable, well educated, thoughtful and had a a good sense of humour. He also provided information about places and processes that we intended to visit or use. He was excellent and we thoroughly recommend him for any tour he offers. Thank you Aki!
Aki took us customised to specific sites and had timelines exactly adjusted so we could witness a ritual in a budhist temple. We enjoyed Tokyo so much, many thanks Aki!
We were fortunate to have AKi as our guide in Hakone. We got in touch prior to our visit and let him know our interests so we came up with itinerary ahead of time. Aki picked us up at our hotel as planned. He spent a day with us according to itinerary and was flexible with any changes made on the spot. He was courteous, helpful. knew hakone well. We are very thankful to him to make our experience in Hakone pleasant and worry-free.
We wanted a day trip to Hakone and wanted to see great views of Mt Fuji. Aki built an itinerary for us that was flexed to our needs and desires. Aki is very knowledgeable and a true gentleman. We learned a lot and enjoyed his company over the course of the day with him. When back, we will definitely look to use Aki again.
We were traveling from Tokyo to Osaka and spent the day with Aki who showed us around the Hakone region. Our trip included, Hakone Checkpoint, Lake Ashinoko (Sightseeing Cruise), Hakone Ropeway, Owakudani and Odawara Castle. We got see a cloud-covered view of Mount Fuji and sample kuro-tomago. But the real highlight was an amazing experience with a puzzle box ‘master’ who demonstrated how he hand made the intricate and fascinating puzzle boxes. This was a priority destination for our family and Aki arranged a unique experience that we otherwise could not have come across ourselves. Aki was friendly, well versed in English and generous with his time. He arrived early and pre-purchased Hakone Free Passes for our family so that we could save time. Our day was not rushed and the itinerary was well planned. We returned to Osawara Station with time to collect our luggage from the lockers and buy bento boxes before we boarded our shinkansen to Osaka. Thanks Aki, for the amazing experience.
