A group of 8 of us met up with Akira during our cruise ship stop in Kobe and took the train over to Kyoto for a walking tour of some of the cultural sites. Akira was prompt and met us ready to go right in the cruise ship terminal. We hopped on a train over to Kyoto and then a short bus ride to where we started our walk. Akira was very knowledgeable about the entire area and filled us in on the fine details of Kobe, Kyoto and Japan the entire time as well as answered any other questions we had along the way. We had a very enjoyable day and left with more knowledge of Japan and the culture than when we started - which is what travel is all about. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Akira!!
