“ 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

“ 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.


Thank you so much for such a nice review. The review really makes me feel encouraged and also gives me an incentive and also helps me become a better guide from now on. I’d like to say thank you because I had a wonderful time to see nice people. Everyone listened to my stories warmly, and tried to answer my strange quizzes with much interest. I’ll never forget this memorable experience. I’d like to live up to the words you game me. Say hello to everyone, John-san, Jeff-San, and also Lucia-san. If you have a chance to visit Tokyo again, I’d like to see you again. Thank you very much again. Enjoy your tour again! Akira Best regards."
