“ 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

“ Delightful day with Akira ”

Akira made our visit to Tokyo very special. He was a pleasure to deal with planning the day, and was very responsive to our wants and needs. I requested a tour of the Diet Building and he arranged it so we could see inside the beautiful building and the legislative chambers. Our visit to the Fish Market was an amazing experience and Akira guided us thru an excellent lunch at a market sushi bar. He helped us understand Japanese history, gardens and culture in a very interesting and enjoyable way. I cannot recommend him more highly. Should I be lucky enough to return to Tokyo, I would definitely want Akira as my guide.

“ Wonderful custom full day Tokyo tour ”

My family of four (including our boys, ages 11 and 13) plus our two friends had the pleasure of spending a full day in Tokyo with Akira. He planned the itinerary for the day and made great suggestions. My favorite part of the day was visiting the fish market. It was handy to have Akira with us because he knew how to get into the inner market, which was the best part, and he arranged a beautiful sushi lunch for us at a quiet restaurant just outside the market. My other favorite part of the tour was Akira's trivia questions and prizes - what a brilliant way to liven up the tour. Akira's English is perfect and he was very responsive on email. Highly recommend!

“ Excellent Guide ”

We had the pleasure of Akira's company for 2 days. My family and I went to Meiji, Asakusa, Harajuku, Kamakura and more. He was very accommodating and made sure everybody was comfortable and enjoying the sights. Thank you for sharing Japans history and traditions with us. The children especially enjoyed your quizes and prizes at end of the day. Communication with him before the tour started was great. Highly recommended! Hope to see you again soon.

“ Custom full day tour ”

Thank you for a wonderful day, Akira. We enjoyed going to Meiji Jingu Shrine and Sensoji Temple. Thank you for explaining the history, rituals and contrast between them. We very much enjoyed the gardens we went to and sharing time having tea and a sweet in the tea house. It is so wonderful that there are calm places for people to enjoy within Tokyo and also busy places to invigorate as well. Thank you so much for your hospitality, knowledge and guidance on our tour. We highly recommend your tours to others.
