“ Nara/Osaka Visit ”

Akira was great. Due to dietary restrictions, we were a tricky group to work with. He was very flexible with the itinerary. We enjoyed Nara so much that we spent a majority of our time there. He was extremely knowledgeable about both cities. I would definitely recommend Akira to any group in need of a tour guide.


Dear Chad Thank you so much for your nice review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed Japan with me. I was pleased to meet your nice group and enjoyed with you. Please come back again Thank you Akira

We liked him! He came on time and very patient to us especially to my 3 yr old son. We took a lot of pictures all the time, but he sees to it that we still manage the time to visit more places. He always managed to look for us! What also made him excellent is that he was so concerned about my son because we need to look for a nebulizer machine during the tour. Two thumbs up for Sir Akira!


Dear Jayvie Thank you so much for your nice review. I was glad to have nice family in Kyoto. I hope that you enjoyed Japan. Please come back again. Akira
