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.

“ Tsukiji Fish Market Tour ”

Akio promptly met us at our hotel to take us to Tsukiji Fish Market Tour in the morning. We toured the inner and outer shops - it's a fast paced market place and was good to have someone take us there, navigate the way around since we didn't have much time. Go and see the market before they move!

Mr. Akio is a very friendly tour guide. He managed to arrange our tour according to the places we wanted. The tour is well-planned, organized and very informative. Thank you so much Mr. Akio. By the way, I hope you can send me the photos from your camera. Arigatou!

Akio was very polite and punctual. However his English was not so good and he offered very little explanation of the sights we saw. It was difficult to understand what he was saying and difficult to have a conversation with him as he didn't listen very well. We wanted to go to the fish market which was not on his usual tour however he did take us but there was nothing to see as it had finished so it was a waste of time and lots of time spent on the subway. As a client it would be better for him to be honest and to tell us that as a guide to perhaps go another time. To be fair He offered alternatives like Ginza street but we didn't want that. Akio looked after us well on the many subways and trains we took. I would only recommend him for 2stars and really only for jJapanese groups wanting a very limited tour of the sights as I don't feel his English was good enough.

Akio does not understand English as well as we had hoped and we did not get very much explanation about the places in Tokyo we visited. He was helpful in getting us from place to place by subway. For 80 years old, he does have a lot of energy.
