Overview

Factory tours such as car assembly, beer/Sake brewery, civil engineering facilities or manufacturing facilities available on site. With my engineering background, I can give you additional information to what the factory guide gives in Japanese.
Most of the facilities ask you to refrain from taking photos.

What to Expect

Choose one or two of below factory tour. I will pick you up in your hotel and take you to the factory. I will give you a translation of the factory guide in Japanese with my engineering background and take you back to the hotel.
1. Sake brewery: Availability is always tight, admission fee may be required, Sake tasting involved.
2. The Bank of Japan
3. Tokyo stock exchange
4. Suntory beer factory

7. G-Cans in Saitama (giant underground rain water reservoir to prevent flood in Tokyo)

The whole tour is subject to factory tour availability. You might want to make a priority list so that I can try from the top to find available spots.
Except Sake brewery, they are open on weekdays only and closed on weekends or national holidays. They may take their own days off for maintenance, too.
Car factories require three months lead time.

“ Mt Fuji Motorcycle Tour ”

As the weather was on and off Arti kept in constant communication on go/no go. Everything was a breeze from getting to the Kofu bike shop from Tokyo, renting the bike and the tour itself. Arti is extremely knowledgeable and very kind to stop and explain the history and culture of what we are viewing. 5 star day all around. Next time we will definitely go again with Arti for tours if we are around Japan. Pleasure to have had Arti lead our family on the motorcycle tour.

Akira.K:

Thank you very much for your favorable comments. The weather wasn’t perfect but we could enjoy Mt. Fuji area. I will keep improving my tours.

“ Awesome Mt. Fuji Tour ”

Akira (aka Arti) is a great guide. Very knowledgable of the area, kept on schedule, and provided us all of the points in the itinerary. He had fun stories and was great with conversation. He even provided some pointers for shopping for specific souvenir items. Although it is an extra few hundred dollars, the private taxi is worth his recommendation for the Mt. Fuji area - we wouldn't have been able to see everything without it.

Akira.K:

Thank you very much for your favorable comments. I will make my efforts to make my tours even better for the future.

“ Day trip to Mt Fuji ”

What an amazing day and what and amazing Tour Guide. We met Akira on the train and he had arranged a private driver and car as per our request. Akira made the day so run smoothly and made the day very interesting. He was happy to answer all our questions and more than happy to make changes during the day as the weather was spectacular. We were a group of 4 adults who enjoy seeing the amazing mountains. Our tour meant that we did not see many other tours despite it being peak season which just made the day all the more special.

Akira.K:

Thank you very much for your favorable comments. I will make my future tours even better.

“ Great Tour with a Local ”

Arti provided much in depth information for first timers taking the train from Tokyo which made it easy for us to purchase the right tickets and meet him at the meeting point. During the tour, he shared history and was quick to answer any questions we had. Touring with a local was an excellent experience, so different from the standard group tours and Arti brought us to shop from the source rather than souvenir shops. We totally enjoyed the tour with Arti and highly recommend him!

Akira.K:

Thank you Dixie san and Gen san for your favorable commets. I also enjoyed our tour and sharing the thoughts with you two. I will make my maximum efforts to make my tour even better.
