What to Expect

The full day tour covers our most fascinating destinations in Tokyo. I show you around five destinations; Kyu Shiba Rikyu Garden, Tsukiji Fish Market, Ueno Park, Akihabara Electric Town and Ginza Street. Shiba Rikyu Garden is a classic Japanese landscape garden, and you may see a newly married couple wearing traditional wedding clothes. No doubt, Tsukiji Fish Market is the largest fish market in the world. Overall, more than 700,000 metric tons of seafood are handled every year. Ueno Park is the best place in Tokyo to watch cherry blossom in April. The park contains the country’s most famous Ueno Zoo, National Museum, National Museum of Western Arts, National Science Museum, Metropolitan Fine Art Gallery, besides Toshogu Shrine. Enjoy shopping or window shopping at topnotch stores on the Ginza Streets.

Hi I'm Akio. I'm a friendly and customer-centered tour guide with a good knowledge of Japanese culture, history, business and daily life. I'm a kind of person who is liked by everybody, regardless of gender, age or nationality. I am particularly thoughtful of my senior citizen clients. You can rest assured that I will show you around at a more comfortable pace. As I have travelled to 53 countries, I can explain about our country in comparison with the rest of the world. My major was economics at university, and I had worked as board director for an international logistics company for many years before I became a licensed tour guide. If you are interested in Japanese politics, economy, business, corporate culture, financial situation, and so on, I am at your disposal to answer any questions you may have. A client says I have a good sense of humor and prompt response. I specialize in showing my valuable clients around Tokyo and its vicinity full day.

Akio was very prompt on arrival in morning but we feel there wasn't any information given on places we visited. We back tracked a lot of the time and I felt he didn't really know where we were going, especially at tsujiku market and some train stations. English also not very good , overall very disappointed.

Akio is a well-informed tour guide. Definitely was a pleasure to have him take us around tokyo for the day. Definitely would recommend him to anyone considering a day tour around tokyo. Obviously can't see it all in one day but at least we hit some really good spots around the city.

Akio is an outstanding tour guide. He shares his vast knowledge of Japan, it's culture and history. He develops the tour to suit your needs and adjusts as needed. You are the boss of your experience. I particularly appreciated he paced the tour to my limited abilities yet we walked over 5 miles.

Overall the tour did not meet our expectation, because we spent most of the times on transportation, leaving a small fraction of time for sight seeing. In addition we have hard time to understand the tour guide's English

First time in Japan and our tour guide was excellent Mr Horisaki is very kind and gentle man, he treated us like his daughters, the day went very fast because of his high spirited personality. Mr Horisaki took time out to example the history of his country. When we return back to Japan we will contact him again. Thank you for helping my sister get her cough sweets. God bless.

My family greatly enjoyed our tour with Akio. He kept us moving along so that we could fit everything in that we wanted to see, but also gave us time to linger and/or take pictures at favorite spots. My kids loved Akio, as he was very attentive, humorous and friendly and answered all of our questions. His knowledge of the train system was invaluable, as we would have been lost had we tried to navigate on our own at first. We would not hesitate to use his services again in the future.

My family and I spent a wonderful day being shown around Tokyo by Akio. He met us when and where we asked, speaks English well, has a great sense of humor and made us feel like we were out of town family. We got a great overview of the city, he took us where we wanted to go, recommended additional places we might want to see, and brought us to a fantastic (and reasonably priced) sushi place for lunch. We never felt rushed and he was extremely patient with us all day- even though we went passed the time we had reserved. What made it special for us was not just what he showed us but also watching how my teenage boys really connected with him. For a small group of first time visitors who want an easy paced tour, Akio is a great choice.
