“ 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

“ Excellent day of experiencing Tokyo! ”

Akira was easy-going and filled with lots of great tips and info for our visit. He took us to see the sights we requested, as well as some interesting places he recommended along the way. We would happily tour with Akira again!


Dear Meagan, Thank you so much for the great review. I was so happy to be a guide for your first time Tokyo visit and witness your first experience for many things, including some of raw foods and deserts. I, too, would happily tour with you and your wonderful family help you discover more about my loving city. Sincerely, Akira

“ Akira was Perfect! ”

For our first full day in Tokyo, we booked Akira to take us around. He was wonderful! He was on time to pick us up in the beginning of the day. We travelled with 3 of our boys, ages 12, 10 and 5 years old, and Akira was perfect for them. He was able to give us so much history and knowledge while still keeping everyone entertained. My children really loved him. After getting to know our family after a couple hours, he suggested we change our itinerary/last scheduled spot because he had a place to take us that he thought our family would really enjoy and he was so right! It was a less "touristy" spot in Tokyo and we all really had a great time. Akira really was the perfect way to spend our first day in such an amazing city. He taught us so much about how to get around the city and so much hi... read more


Hello Siobhan, Thank you for your great review. It was so nice to be surrounded by happy family vibes. I did enjoyed conversation with your three little movie stars, Reynolds, Ford, and Brosnan, and I couldn't help smiling when they were focusing on their treasure hunting. I was so happy to see that you all had a great time in the trains, in the market, in the shrine (thank you so much for paying respect to our culture...) , and wacky toy shops. I am wishing that this coming 5days in the city will be memorable and wonderful enough for wonderful family. Dewa-mata (See you next time)! Sincerely, Akira Nakashima
