“ 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.

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!

“ Kyoto & Nara ”

Mr. Akira was wonderful! He picked us up from our nearest train station and took us to Nara. The kids got to play with the deer and we really enjoyed the shrine. After Nara he took us to Kyoto and we were able to see kinkakuji and then arashiyama. He was very knowledgable on the area and provided great history as well as tips.
