“ Great day with Akira ”

We had a great time in Tokyo with Akira. He showed us around some quiet, traditional neighborhoods, took us to Buddhist Temples and Shinto shrines, walked through a market with us, and taught us a lot about Japanese history. We ate really well too! He was kind, flexible, and knowledgeable.

“ Excellent tour by a true Tokyo Native! Highly Recommended! ”

I was eager to see lots of Tokyo in the limited time I had there. Akira helped me work out a great itinerary to make the most of my time, prior to my trip. The day of my tour, Akira arrived promptly and immediately began pointing out places of interest from the view of my Hotel. Due to a National Holiday in Japan, we had to make some on-the-fly adjustments to our itinerary, but Akira never missed a beat and made sure I saw all the things that were of importance to me, and even went out of his way to take me to a district my brother wanted photos of AND to his favorite Udon restaurant in Tokyo. He was thoughtful, providing towels when needed and easily translating between me and shop-owners along the way and always eager to discuss traditions and customs that I was unfamiliar with. He was k... read more

“ Tokyo - getting started ”

We decided us for a guided tour at our arrival day in Tokyo to beat the jetlag after a 12 hour long haul overnight flight from Europe. To prepare the tour we wrote a very detailed message with our expectations. Unfortunately the suggested iternaty didn‘t meet our expectations, so we did a lot of research about Tokyo on our own. In the end this was the best excercise to get ready for the city, but it wasn‘t our expectation to do what we thought was the guide‘s job. The tour ittself was perfect. Akira is very reliable, friendly and knows Tokyo like the back of his hand. We covered all stations of our tour while being fascinated by the variety of the city. We could relax and enjoy every step of the way, as Akira was guiding us trustworthy. We really can recommend a tour with Akira to ... read more


Hello Jan, Thank you very much for the great review. Also, thank you very much for giving me an idea of what type of information about my city gathering from internet may attracts those people who's visit Tokyo for very first time. I can easily guess that you had wonderful time for the rest of the days in Tokyo since you were well prepared for everything you need. I wish you a good luck on everything, and wishing that you make a happiest family with newborn baby! Sincerely, Akira

“ Thank you so much!!! ”

Akira was wonderful! This was our first time visiting Japan for my fiancée and I. We enjoyed and learned so much about the Japanese history, culture, and language. Navigating the subway system with him was such a breeze since we got lost a few times before on our own. His recommendations for food were excellent! I had two bowls of ramen (yes, I eat a lot!), and my fiancée really enjoyed the traditional Japanese sweets. He was flexible, accommodating, very sweet, and funny. Time flew by for us for the one day. From the Tokyo tower, to the gorgeous palace, the beautiful shrine, the Shibuya crossing, Harajuku, and yes even the free gag, every moment was fun and memorable. We really felt like locals walking around with him. We had a great time getting to know him as well (hopefully he also lea... read more


Dear Alci, Thank you so much for the great review. Yes, we all had a great time. I’m so happy that you felt like locals and I can tell that you enjoyed walking, observing, and eating like one of us. Yes, I too, learned about your interesting culture. It was my pleasure to be a part of very important trip for both of you. I know that you will make a happy family with love and laughter. Hope you will have another chance to come back and let’s talk more about anime and manga! Sincerely, Akira
