“ Best way to spend our first day in Tokyo ”

Akira was very friendly and provided the historical significance about the places we visited. He also gave us good advice about transportation and culture customs. Thanks for making our day so perfect.


Hello Juliana, Thank you so much for the great review. It is so nice to hear that your first full day in Japan was a good one. I was so happy to hear from all of you about what you are expecting from my country, and to see all of you are ready to experience everything, food, culture etc.. I am wishing (and I know you will) that you all have a great time for the rest of your trip in my loving country. Sincerely, Akira

“ Two day terrific tour ?Tokyo and Kamakura ”

From beginning to end, Akira exceeded in every way the expectations my wife and I had for choosing a guide from an online site. His comfortable, relaxed approach belied an in-depth, thoughtful, efficient and thorough knowledge of how best to introduce Tokyo and Japan to us in a much too short 2 days. He listened carefully to our general wishes and wove them into a plan that covered as much as 2 jet lagged tourists could handle. His guidance through public transportation to non-touristy sites, to restaurants with local flavor were all highlighted by his love and familiarity with his city. Clearly, his knowledge of the history and culture of Japan added to our appreciation for all that we were seeing and his gentle sense of humor kept everything in perspective. Our conversations we... read more


Dear Paul, Thank you so much for the great review. It was enjoyable and thoughtful two days for me, and I am so happy that you felt the same way. We enjoyed beautiful hydrangea and awesome bamboo forest, we had a nice bowl of ramen at old school ramen place, we met warm old couple at the confectionary and good cabdriver who gave us good advice regarding return train to Shinjuku.... And we enjoyed endless conversation about many things. Only negative factor about today's tour, I thought first, was unpleasant weather. However, the rain enhanced the beauty of the beauty of hydrangea and bamboo forest. So, after all, everything went so smoothly and I think I know why. It all because of you and Maria's positive vibes. It was my pleasure to be the first Japanese for you to spend long... read more

“ Awesome Customized Tour of Old & New Tokyo !!! ”

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Akira. He provided the perfect introduction to our week-long stay in Tokyo. His grasp of history, his personable nature, and his command of English made for a truly memorable experience. After inquiring about our particular interests, he tailored an itinerary revealing much of his remarkable home city in a short period. We cannot recommend him highly enough.


Hello Aaron, Thank you so much for the great review. And also, thank you so much for your saying hi to me on the street the other day. I was wondering if the tour made a good introduction to you but it seemed that everything had gone pretty well since after the tour. Well, If you have another chance to come back to the city and need my help, I will be very happy to be there for you. Sincerely, Akira

“ Rare and UniqueTreat ”

For our 2nd day in Tokyo, we wanted an insider's view of the city. Akira accomodated beautifully. We were taken to rarely toured areas of Tokyo and peppered with local information. He kindly answered my husband's many questions ranging from history to politics. The highlight was our lunch. Akira lead us to a family restaurant off the beaten path. He then made Japanese soul food and a custom made Japanese seafood omelet for us to enjoy together. After an exhausting first day of visiting the "must see" sites of Tokyo, this was a lovely end to our short stay.


Dear Tammie, Thank you so much for the great review. It was my pleasure to be a guide for beautiful, curious, and adventurous couple from the Deep South. I am very happy that you enjoyed the restaurant and neighborhood that we visited than I expected and it make me smile when I see the pucture that we took at the restaurant with the lady at the restaurant. I am looking forward to a next chance to explore my loving city together again. Sincerely, Akira

“ The best part of our Japan experience! ”

Akira was everything you want in a guide. He was prompt, professional, organized and knowledgeable. His english was perfect. He just made it all easy. We booked him so we could go at our own pace and he was perfect at reading our minds. We toured the entire city, dined like locals and ventured via bullet train to the surrounding region. We would recommend him to our own family and friends.


Hello Michael, Thank you so much for the great review. One of the thing I love about guiding job is to meet interesting people from all over the world. It was my pleasure to be a guide for 4 days, for one happy family with amazing chemistry, kind and generous mom, thoughtful boy, curious and energetic girl, and the funky dad with pure heart. I am hoping that you will have another exciting experience ("holding on to your butt" experience?) for the rest of your trip to western region. See you next time! Akira
