Overview

We visit two gardens. One is Rikugien Gardens. which is one of the most famous Japanese stroll-style gardens. There is another gardens nearby named Kyu-Furukawa-tei Gardens, coupled with a rare combination of the Western and Japanese style gardens. Western style gardens was designed by a British architect, Josiah Condor. Both of these two are cultural heritage gardens.

What to Expect

Rikugien Gardens is a stroll-style Japanese gardens. It was constructed in 1702. You can enjoy viewing changing sights while strolling along the routes that surround the pond. Kyu-Furukawa Gardens is a Western-style garden designed by Josiah Condor, the first professor of architecture at Tokyo University who loved Japan throughout his life. They were both valuable cultural properties. You can also touch the peaceful feeling in the center of Tokyo. At the end of the tour why don't we enjoy typical Japanese dishes, such as soba, buckwheat noodle with tempura?

“ Delightful day with Akira ”

Akira made our visit to Tokyo very special. He was a pleasure to deal with planning the day, and was very responsive to our wants and needs. I requested a tour of the Diet Building and he arranged it so we could see inside the beautiful building and the legislative chambers. Our visit to the Fish Market was an amazing experience and Akira guided us thru an excellent lunch at a market sushi bar. He helped us understand Japanese history, gardens and culture in a very interesting and enjoyable way. I cannot recommend him more highly. Should I be lucky enough to return to Tokyo, I would definitely want Akira as my guide.

Akira.S:

Thank you so much for such a nice review. The review really makes me feel encouraged and also gives me an incentive and also helps me become a better guide from now on. I’d like to say thank you because I had a wonderful time to see nice people. Everyone listened to my stories warmly, and tried to answer my strange quizzes with much interest. I’ll never forget this memorable experience. I’d like to live up to the words you game me. Say hello to everyone, John-san, Jeff-San, and also Lucia-san. If you have a chance to visit Tokyo again, I’d like to see you again. Thank you very much again. Enjoy your tour again! Akira Best regards."

“ Wonderful custom full day Tokyo tour ”

My family of four (including our boys, ages 11 and 13) plus our two friends had the pleasure of spending a full day in Tokyo with Akira. He planned the itinerary for the day and made great suggestions. My favorite part of the day was visiting the fish market. It was handy to have Akira with us because he knew how to get into the inner market, which was the best part, and he arranged a beautiful sushi lunch for us at a quiet restaurant just outside the market. My other favorite part of the tour was Akira's trivia questions and prizes - what a brilliant way to liven up the tour. Akira's English is perfect and he was very responsive on email. Highly recommend!

Akira.S:

I’d like to say thank you because I had a wonderful time to see nice families, nice people, and nice boys. Everyone listened to my stories warmly, and tried to answer my strange quizzes eagerly. I’ll never forget this memorable experience. I’d like to live up to the words you game me. Say hello to everyone, to Bill-san, Stastia-san, and Mark-san, of course also to Tyler-kun and Trace-kun. If you happen to have a chance to visit Tokyo again, I’d like to see you again. Thank you very much again. Enjoy your daily life in Australia! Akira Best regards.
