“ One day overview of Tokyo sights! ”

My family of 4 (two 4 year old boys) went to the Imperial palace, Tokyo Tower, Tsukiji Fosh Market and Asakusa using the subway/jr Systems. We had sushi in the outer market, coffee (while the boys napped on our laps), street foods and some good history/culture too! Akira was great with our boys and us. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and appreciated his guidance. His patience and flexibility to do what we wanted was just what we were looking for! Highly reccomend! And his English was great!

“ Tokyo Private Day Tour ”

My brother and I had the privilege of a private Tokyo city tour with Akira. This was a last minute trip and we did not have much time to prepare, but Akira was nothing short of amazing!! He planned everything perfectly and we were able to see all of the things we were interested in. Akira even went to the trouble of checking out all of the places we wanted to visit in advance. We simply could not have done any of it without Akira. He is incredibly knowledgeable and fun to be with. I have already recommended Akira to several of my friends in the US who plan to visit Tokyo. I'm only sorry that we didn't have more time! Thank you so much Akira for a great introduction to Tokyo! I'm sure we will be seeing you on our next trip to Japan!

“ Fantastic! ”

Akira was a great guide for our family of first timers to Japan. We let him know what we were interested in and he tailored our tour perfectly. Akira was very easy to understand and also gave us some really good information and tips. We had a fabulous lunch at a local place that he took us to as well. He is a great person and we thoroughly recommend Akira!

“ Top notch tour guide! ”

We are first time visitors of Tokyo with family of 4. We had no clue how the transit system worked. Two days of private tour with Akira helped us tremendously and he was very thorough in explaining how to get around Tokyo. He was super accommodating and flexible during our private tour. We loved his itineraries as they covered an excellent variety of places that satisfied each of us. Akira was diligent, kind, and super fun to hang out with. His English speaking skill was one of the best we've encountered. We consider him the BEST Guide in Tokyo. Highly highly recommend Akira for all your tour needs.

“ One-day personalized tour of Tokyo! ”

Akira was an outstanding and fun tour guide for our trip to Tokyo! His English was very good and he was prompt in meeting us at our hotel. It was our first time to Tokyo and we weren't sure if we had needed a tour guide, but we are very glad we chose to do so. Akira was very accommodating to the places we wanted to visit and showed us how to navigate the train and subway system, which is very confusing if you don't know how to read Japanese. It definitely helped us with the rest of our trip when we were on our own. He came prepared with a portable white board and have us a crash course on the Japanese language which was very cool. I think we ended up saving a lot of time because of all the insight he provided us, compared to if we had done it on our own. It left us more time to explore Tokyo on our own efficiently and make the most use of our time. He also recommended a lot of great restaurants which we would have never been able to find on our own, even when we had bought several Tokyo books. We highly recommend Akira!

“ Akira is awesome! ”

Our family which includes six kids (ages 7-16) had an amazing time with Akira. First, he is VERY responsive during the planning stages. Akira had wonderful recommendations yet was very accommodating to our ideas. Next, he planned ahead and purchased tickets for us in order to expedite our plans and ensured we had as much time as possible to tour not stand in line. Akira was so detailed oriented. He showed up at our apartment and already had memorized all the kid's names, had print-outs of maps, train schedules, etc. all in a folder for us. Akira even knew our dietary preferences and recommended the perfect restaurants. We proceeded to have a super efficient day. Akira was also so helpful to ensure that the rest of our plans in Tokyo were made and that we had all the right directions, etc. Lastly, I commend Akira on his honesty and integrity. Unknown to us, one of our tours actually cost less than we had pre-paid and at the end of the tour, Akira handed us the savings. He could have easily pocketed this money and we would have never known. We made a new friend in Akira and strongly recommend him.

“ Soo accommodating and knowledgeable ”

I should start by saying Akira is professional at his craft. He communicates prior to arrival to confirm he arranges the perfect day for his guests. We are a family of 4 with two kids, 8 and 10 so our ideas for fun probably a little different than most. He was great at adjusting and playing along with our family. We booked him twice!
