“ Fantastic tour of Tokyo ”

We loved having Akira show us around on our first day in Tokyo. He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating. He took us to Shibuya, Harajuku, Meji Shrine, and Asakusa. He answered all our questions and made us feel very welcome. He was extremely kind and we learned so much about Tokyo and Shinto culture and rituals. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wonderful day seeing and learning about Tokyo.

“ May 2018 Tour ”

Akira did a great job as a tour guide for us when we were in Tokyo. Very knowledgeable and even as we changed the locations and schedule on the day of the event he was very accommodating.

“ A wonderful walking tour of Tokyo with Akira ”

Our guide Akira took us on a memorable tour of the highlights of Japan. Using the Subway we were able to explore many wonderful places. Akira was very knowledgeable and told us many interesting facts about Tokyo and its history. He took us to a local restaurant for lunch. It was one of the highlights of our day. Akira speaks fluent English and he has a warm, happy personality which made him a pleasure to be with.

“ Tokyo sights ”

Akira was a great guide! He went out of his way to amend our tour throughout the day, he advised us on train systems & getting pasmo cards since we were exploring only Tokyo. He took us to one of the best Ramen eatery in shinjuku and helped us find my twin boys toys. My son (11yr old) thoroughly enjoyed the samurai museum, temples, chatting & information on history of Tokyo. Thank you very much Akira, you were wonderful :)

“ 2 day tour in Tokyo ”

We stayed in Tokyo for an additional three days after our 15 days Asia cruise and booked two days of tours with Akira. The first day was 5 hours and second 7 hours of seeing the top sights. We had an enjoyable time and were able to see the sights, but believe with a little homework probably could have just as easily have done this on our own. Akira, was very prompt at meeting us at our hotel each day and in fact was early each day. Realize that most of the sights are quite a distant apart which required us to take the train everywhere for short visits then back not the train so anticipate spending a lot more money on train fares plus the guide. I think we had a bit of a miss-step on day 2 of our tour when we toured the inner market of the Tsukiji fish market. After viewing literally thousands upon thousands of pounds of tuna and other seafood I asked out guide a few questions about Japanese culture and over-fishing of the seas and he seemed to get a bit offended at this and quickly snapped back. The conversation seemed to get a bit confrontational and I just ended it. While the rest of the trip went well we did not seem to get much history or culture as we had hoped on our tour and came away with the conclusion that short of trying to navigate the subway system the sights can be just as easily visited on your own and you can get just as much out of the visits without a guide. The value of the guide was mostly the navigation part.
