“ Amazing!!!!!! ”

I’m not sure where to begin. Akira was simply amazing. We were a complicated group of 7 (two marathon runners, different arrival times, and different dietary restrictions). Akira was able to adjust our itineraries at a moments notice and made sure that we saw the highlights of Tokyo. He guided us through the city with ease and was extremely knowledgeable. He would even stop and get samples of local fare to make sure that we didn’t miss anything that Tokyo had to offer. We even went above and beyond to help us coordinate taxis for our move from the hotel to our AirBnB and our bullet train tickets to our next city. From the wonderful restaurants that he choose to the small extra details that he added on the fly, he made our trip to Tokyo truly memorable. I can’t recommend Akira enough as a guide. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

“ It was an amazing tour ”

I gave one of the tours of Akira to my son as a birthday present, as he was to travel to Tokyo soon after his birthday. And my son told me that he really liked the tour and he was very enthusiastic about it. The tour was custom made by Akira for my son and they went to go see a lot of different things during the day. Akira explained a lot of things, for example about how to travel the metro, the difference between buddhism and shintoism, and about Japanese custums, My son also very much liked the lunch at the okonomiyaki restaurant, and visiting the tempel. I'm very glad I chose Akira for this tour, and would happily do it again in the future. Akira was also very attentive about communication, and was very polite. Absolutely a great tour guide!

“ Extremely knowledgable and personable ”

I engaged Akira-san to guide me for 7 hours during a Monday on my very first trip to Japan. He far exceeded all expectations in giving give me a great overview of Tokyo highlights as well as navigate the Metro. I will absolutely engage Akira-san again when I next visit to get more in-depth tours os specific sights. Thank you Akira-san for the great conversation, company, insights and a gentle introduction to Japan.

“ Knowledgeable Fun and Experienced Guid ”

Akira was an exceptional tour guid. We used him for two full days. We visited numerous points throughout Toyko. He was extremely flexible, especially when we had decided to make some last minute changes along the way. He also took us to some very unique, locals only places, that we likely would have never expericed had we done things on our own. Thanks to Akira we were able to make the best use of our time in Tokyo. Akira is a great ambassador to his nation and does a more than sufficant job of explaining everything in great deatail. You will not be disappointed if you use him as your guid.

“ Fantastic English speaking guide for Tokyo ”

We had a day you’re with Akira in Nov 17. Akira is a fantastic guide, fluent in English, very knowledgeable of Tokyo, Japanese customs and traditions, and Local history. He met us at our hotel on time and organised a great introduction to Tokyo tour for a full day. I would happily do another tour with Akira and would recommend him to others. We are a family with two teenage children from Australia and only speak English.
