This is a summary for our 3 days with Akira. He was always waiting for us in our lobby. Always prompt. He had planned an itinerary that would make the best use of our time in Tokyo. When it was raining one day he was adaptable and changed our plans to an equally enjoyable experience. one day we were walking and passed an ad for the digital museum. He described it to us and asked if we wanted to go. We said yes and it turned out to be one of our highlights in Tokyo. So Akira is adaptable which we liked and listens to what his guests want. His English is excellent, he is very knowledgable and patient with explanations. We enjoyed our three days with Akira.
Hello Sheah, Thank you so much for the great review. I’m very happy that you liked the way I do guiding during the 3days. I liked the atmosphere that you all created, the unique blend of four people curious, likable, jolly and intelligent. It was my pleasure to be a part of your Japan experience. I am looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city together again. See you next time. Sincerely, Akira
He cancelled tour due to typhoon. Promised full refund. Waiting to hear from you. I’ve also emailed. Cannot pay for no tour!
Dear Sue, My deepest apology for your inconvenience. The promise I made will be fulfilled soon. Whole procedure for full refund has been taken sometime because the typhoon occurred in the middle of holiday studded weekend (Monday, October 14 is national holiday). Our customer support personnel will work for that from tomorrow for sure. Forgive my asking you for your understanding about my decision of cancelation. I still believe that the decision was right since operation for transportations, subway and surface trains etc.., in the city next day of the typhoon were actually far limited than many people imagined which will be fatal to my tour (walking tour using public transportation). I will promise you again that the price you paid will be fully refund. If you have another... read more
Akira is the best of the best! He is knowledgeable, well informed on current events as well as historical events. He took us places that we would not have seen and experienced without him......genuine Japanese experiences. He is fun and easy to be around. If I get to go back to Tokyo, I will definitely choose Akira.
Dear Ellen, Thank you so much for the great review. I am so happy that you had a great time that day. It was a bit different from what we originally planned, but I think we were successfully creating a nice, friendly atmosphere and it made me feel like I was showing my friend around my city. I was so happy to see happy mom and beautiful daughter enjoying great time together and it was my pleasure to be a part of it. I am looking forward to another chance to enjoy my loving city together again. See you next time. Sincerely, Akira
Akira met us at our hotel in Yokohama and escorted us on the the subway into Tokyo. As this was our first time in Japan it was nice to have an escort guiding the way. We found Akira to be friendly, knowledgeable and very easy to understand. We had good conversations throughput the day and he proved to be a very caring person. In fact, he made sure we had proper directions and were on the correct line when he left us at the subway in Tokyo for our return to our hotel in Yokohama. Several hours later, he even texted me to make sure we arrived safely. I would wholeheartedly recommend Akira to anyone looking for a tour guide in Tokyo.
Dear Ken, Thank you so much for the great review. It was my pleasure to be a guide for jolly people like you and your wonderful friends. I am so happy that it seems I could make myself understood. I hope your first experience of Tokyo was enjoyable and memorable one, and I hope that you will have another chance to come back to Tokyo and explore my loving city together . See you next time. Sincerely, Akira
Excellent. Akira has very good knowledge and speaks English very well.
