“ Special Tour of Akihabara and Shibuya ”

I booked a special tour of Akihabara and Shibuya for my family. Makoto was wonderful and very responsive in answering my questions as I decided on the details of the tour. He continued to answer my questions up to the day of the tour. Afterwards, my family reported that Makoto was a fabulous guide! He was very nice, friendly, patient, helpful, and he spoke excellent English. They were all very happy!

Makoto was a terrific guide -- on time, full of knowledge, excellent English, great personality and easy-going nature. We truly enjoyed touring around Tokyo with him. He always had a smile on his face even when we wanted to see so many sights in one day. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a tour guide of Tokyo or other parts of Japan.
