Dear Akira, Firstly, excuse Mark for all his questions. He is a very curious man, but you manage to answer his questions all just fine :D. Akira, you are our perfect guide. You introduces us the way of Tokyo and showed us places where we would never knew or how to go as a tourist. Eating tonkatsu in a local restaurant was the best experience ever!! You have no idea how much you made us happy that day! Definitly recommend you as the perfect guide for visiting Tokyo. You speak very fluently English, really kind and knowledgable and always makes sure we have a good time under your care. Thank you very much. I hope the stroopwafels that we gave u were a nice treat :) Yours sincerly, Kim & Mark
Dear Kim, Thank you so much for the great review. It is so nice to hear that you enjoyed the day with me. Yes, the Tonkatsu was delicious and I am very happy that you liked the dish and the restaurant’s very local atmosphere. It was fun to listen to Mark’s question since it makes me see things Japanese from different angle. Oh, thank you so much for the stroopeafle. I just finished it and it was so good (my mom loved it too). I am looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city together. See you next time. Sincerely, Akira
Akira is very personable and was so attentive to everyone in our group. He really listened to the requests of all the group members. He has a great personality and is so knowledgeable. We had a comprehensive introduction to Japanese culture and history. We all had a fun time together with a lot of laughing. We would recommend him as a guide to anyone visiting Tokyo without reservation!
Dear Charlene, Thank you so much for the great review. It was a fun day for all of us, as I expected in a first few seconds of our conversation. I am so happy that your very first experience of Japan was present and enjoyable one with happy laughter and it was my pleasure to be a part of it. I’m looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city together again. See you next time. Sincerely, Akira P.S. So sorry that I didn’t airdropped some of the pics that I took during the tour. I’ll send them to you if you could kindly contact me personally.
My husband and I had an amazing day with Akira around Tokyo. Thank you so much Akira for spending the day with us. You are very kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. We truly enjoyed spending the day with you and will recommend you to our friends for future visits.
Dear Fabiola, Thank you so much for the great review. I too, enjoyed spending the day with you and so happy you liked the things I like. Please don’t worry about the “bad fortune” you picked that day. Please remember what I told you( what my grand father said) and most of all, your fortune is the best since you have the Angel with you. I hope you will have great time for the rest of Japan trip, and I’m looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city together again. Sincerely, Akira
Great English very flexible and knowledgeable.
Dear Ronald, Reading your simple, but great review, I can recall your warm, sincere, and straight forward personality. Thank you so much for having me. I am looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city together. Sincerely, Akira Nakashima
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
