“ Absolutely delightful! ”

Shinya was a wonderful host, we spent half a day with him to help us acclimatise to Tokyo on our first visit and he was very helpful, informative and kind. He selected a schedule which met all of our family needs, we visited the ueno park to see the cherry blossom, also a temple nearby and the akihabara district. We loved visiting the hedgehog cafe and we spent a great first day with him. We are very grateful to Shinya for helping us to organise the exchange of our JR pass. Highly recommended!


Dear Naomi, Thank you so much for your nice feedback. It was my great pleasure for me to guide you and your nice family members. I do hope you have a wonderful time during your stay in Japan. I wish I could guide you someday in the near future again! Best regards, Shinya

“ I was introduced to the Otaku world in Akihabara, visited a maid cafe, and the Owl cafe. ”

Thanks to Shinya I had the opportunity to see a different Akihabara! He showed me the world of the “Otaku”. The magazine they read, the places they go, where they shop, and what they collect. We met some typical Otaku at the maid café (or maido kafe). There everyone is called master! We went on to the Owl café. This is a place to see. I was surprised that I could stand so close and touch some of the 25 different types of owls. Shinya is an excellent tour guide, knowledgeable, and speaks English well. He was prepared. He could answer all me questions extensively. Thank you Shinya! I am looking forward to joining your Asakusa tour in the future.


Dear Roberto-san I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed my "Akihabara Walking Tour". I appreciate your nice comment. I look forward to seeing you in the new future.

“ Wonderous Akihabara ”

Shinya is an excellent tour guide. He is super! In Akihabara, there are so many flashy buildings for electronic products, anime, cosplays, toys or neo cultures. I could look around them with no wasting time as selected thanks to him. Everything I watched in the tour was much deeper than I thought. Thank you!


Dear Yoko Thank you very much for your note! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. Best regards, Shinya
