“ Akira, the best first glance of Tokyo!! ”

Akira is a kind hearted gentleman and patient even during the barrage of questions we launched at him. Akira took us all over Tokyo, my family and I saw Tokyo in seven hours. He cracked me up and had a jolly attitude and a positive outlook on things. If anyone came close to being awesome it is Akira!


Dear Monika, Thank you so much for the great review. It was my pleasure to be a part of your first full day experience of my loving city and I am very happy that you enjoyed it. It was so much fun for me too, to spend time together with warm hearted, curious, and jolly people like you and your wonderful family. I am hoping that you all have a great time for the rest of the Japan trip and hoping that it will be memorable one for all of you. I am looking forward to another chance to explore this city together again, maybe next time we can visit Yanaka where we couldn't cover this time. See you next time. Sincerely, Akira

“ Your No. 1 Tour Guide! ”

Our experience with Mr Akira was amazing! He kept track of time diligently, arriving right on time even under the blazing heat and rainy day. His knowledge about Tokyo is well versed, amazed us with so many stories behind the places we had visit, some were about the civil war at Ueno Park and how it formed, the fortresses built during the old times at Odaiba Kaihin, the food and culture of the Japanese. It was fascinating! We felt like friends talking and sharing, even about our own country, Malaysia, touching bits of our culture and food! Though there was a heavy downpour at one point, he managed to guide us through the itinerary and well adapted to what we would expect and moreover suggested places like the Tsukiji Market and Ueno Market which was a whole lot of fun times because there w... read more


Dear Clarence, Thank you so much for the great review. I am so happy that she said “yes” and It was my pleasure to be a part of your important trip to Japan. I observed that you have warm heart, you are surrounded by wonderful people, and now you have beautiful partner. I wish you a good luck on everything and I am looking forward to another chance to explore the city together, next time with your wonderful new family. See you next time. Sincerely, Akira

“ Excellent personalized tour of key Tokyo sights ”

We love Akira! We had most of our family of five traveling for the first time to Japan (3 adults and 2 kids). Our original full day plan with Akira was: Tokyo SkyTree, Asakusa (Sensoji Temple), Imperial Palace. I asked him about the other options such as sumo wrestling and fish market which was meant for another time. He was quick to respond to all of my questions via email. The night before, Akira emailed and said there was a possibility of seeing a sumo stable if we met earlier, so we did. Akira met us at our hotel and we traveled by metro. August is one of the hottest months and that day was no exception with 90+ degree Fahrenheit and high humidity. Akira's English was not only superb, but he can speak with sophisticated nuances in English that we all understood and felt very co... read more


Dear Ghia, Thank you so much for the great review. I am so happy that you enjoyed the day. That was the day that good things happened though it was unbelievably hot.... We could meet the wrestlers though we were bit late for observing their training. Ramen restaurant was less crowded (I felt relived when I witnessed resurrection of Lazarus in that restaurant). I think it all because you are all blessed people with happy vibes. I was so happy to be a part of your wonderful time in Tokyo with your loving family. I am looking forward to having another chance to explore the city together again. Sincerely, Akira

“ Private walking tour in Tokyo ”

I cannot say enough good things about Akita. Me eating up with him was a cinch, he was right where we could find him and very punctual. His English was excellent, his knowledge of Tokyo phenomenal. I think we taxed him to the max with our expressed desire to buy Washi paper, but he located a historic shop that included a museum and art gallery and expertly guided us there. Then we taxed his English skills to the max by wanting information about the art and artists exhibiting in the gallery. But he more than adequately communicated advance artistic concepts and terminology! I was so impressed by this knowledgeable, cooperative, kind man who really took the time and made an effort to introduce us to his city and culture. We wanted to be able to negotiate the Tokyo subway and metro s... read more


Dear James, So nice to hear from you. Thank you so much for the great review. I am very happy to know that the time we spend together made a good introduction to Tokyo. Also, I am so happy that you enjoyed the places we went. People with good heart like you brings good things and it happens like coincidence. Yes, the ramen was good and I knew it was good since I have been there many times. But what I surprised was that we didn't have to stand in a long queue which is not as is always in that restaurant. Washi place was wonderful, I knew you would like it (and you did) and there was another surprise there. Lucky her that we had a chance to enjoyed the special exhibition and talked to some of the artists who is an expert of Japanese paper and pigments and techniques. Personally, ... read more

“ Feel Like You are Talking to a Long Time Friend! - TOP LEVEL TOUR! ”

Great first experience in Tokyo! We met at Fukagawa Edo Museum, and ended the day at Omotesando. In between, we had many observations and experiences. From simply buying candy at a Mom & Pop Candy Store to a fascinating Shiota Chiharu exhibit at the Mori museum atop Roppongi Hills! Delicious Lunch was at the Tsukiji Outer Market. While Tokyo was fascinating, what made our first day tour super fantastic was AKIRA. His thoughts and communication skills are extremely friendly -- you feel like you are talking to a long time friend, who is sharing themselves. Akira was attentive to our comfort, both of our interests, and provided a TOP LEVEL tour catered to our interests. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!


Dear Elliot, Thank you so much for the great review. It was my pleasure to be a guide for beautiful, generous, curious, and intellectual people with unique sense of humor. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the day just like I did. It was so much fun for me to introduce you that candy store and nice to see you were brave enough to try my favorite thing when I was little child (though you were not in love with it). Also, I was so happy for Pam's encounter with exquisite works of Shiota. Thank you very much for both of you made me feel that I didn't have to act like a guide. I am looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city with the wonderful odd couple. See you next time. Akira
