I've been working as an adviser teacher of public junior high schools. I've been interested in guiding Japanese popular sightseeing spots to visitors from abroad. I'm really looking forward to meeting many tourists interested in Japanese culture and history. I really hope many people to know Japanese culture, including Japanese cuisine.

“ Amazing custom tour of Tokyo with robots and architecture! ”

When we watched his video, we could see that Akira has a love for people and sharing his culture with them, and from the moment he collected us from our hotel lobby, we knew we'd made the right choice. Akira immersed us in the culture and history of Tokyo and of Japan with his vast supply of stories, facts and tips. He quickly adapted our program to meet last minute dietary needs, and gave us a personalised tour to our special requirements (robots and architecture). He also had detailed instructions for other amazing sights for us to visit for the rest of our trip, ensuring that from a 1 day tour we had enough information for a weeks adventuring! I can't imagine a better guide for our introduction to Japan and today's tour will always be a fond memory for us. Arigato gozaimas, Akira-san.

“ Tokyo essence in just one day ”

We enjoyed very much the dynamic day we had touring around Tokyo with Akira. He organized very well all the stops such that we saw almost everything that was important - from cherry blossom Gardens to shinto temples, walking through fashion streets, wandering around the Emperor's Gardens, admiring Buddist temples to end up in a the Governamental Builing sky scrapper to enjoy the wonderful view of Tokyo by night. He also took into consideration out wishes and we moved through the city at our own pace-which meant walking almost 20km that day! But he made it very interesting by sharing with us details about the Japanese culture, history, religion and customs. Absolutely reccomended! Thank you very much Akira, we have a very beatiful memory of our day together in Tokyo!

“ Excellent guide ”

Akira san was our guide when we were in Tokyo early April 2017. Before our visit, he was prompt and meticulous in communicating with us and planning our one day Trip around Tokyo with him. He was keen to show us as much as one could do in a day and chose attractions with input from us - understanding our interests and matching them with the itinerary he prepared. As most Japanese do, he put his heart and soul into doing the best. We will highly recommend him.

“ Educated erudite tour guide in Tokyo ”

Met Akira online. We had only 2 full days on our visit so we opted for a guide both days all day. No car so we took many expensive taxis to save time. Akira was terrific. A retired English teacher with good language skills. He was so much more than a simple tour guide. We peppered him with a questions from history to current events. He took us to fish market and usual sights, we were there during peak cherry blossom season. Ate sushi with him for very first time in his fav place. Outstanding. Highly recommended.

“ Tokyo fish market ”

Akira picked us up at our hotel and personally guided us through the subway and took us to the fish market, walked us through the inner and outer market and showed us many interesting foods and was very informative. Then he took us to an outstanding sushi restaurant for lunch, which was not expensive. He took the group to Asakusa and then a boat ride. He was very informative and caring. We would recommend him for this tour.

“ Awesome Afternoon with ”

We were in Tokyo for company team building and hired Akira to be our tour guide for a half day tour in Tokyo. We also booked bus from another bus company since we're a large group of 11 people. We learnt a great deal from Akira who kindly explained Tokyo's incredible history (as we drove around imperial garden), Japan's religions (as we visited Asakusa Temple and Meiji Shrine). We also went to Tokyo Tower in the evening where we were greeted with a beautiful night view of the city. Coordination was tough at first because I only had sporadic internet access while in Tokyo and was not able to reply consistently. I would like to thank Akira for being patient with us! I highly recommend Akira to anyone interested to learn a great deal about Japan's rich history and culture.

Akira was very informative. Met us promptly at our hotel with a nice sign printed with our name on it. This helped us identify him. He took us to all of the sites as planned and shared lots of information regarding the history of the sites and the customs. Patiently taught me over and over how to say thank you as it took me a couple of times. Had a delicious lunch as well! Definitely money well spent!!

You were really helpful and we liked geting around Tokyo as locals by train and bus, you showed us Tsukijuku inner and outer market, Hamarikyu gardens, Asakusa and Meiji Shrine in one day, a great tour. thankyou

This trip was a last minute request to which Akira responded to quickly with what was a wonderful itinerary. Communications were excellent. Unfortunately, due to a family illness, we were unable to go on the trip as we had to fly home early. I wished that I had discovered TripleLights and Akira earlier on in my planning though as having a personal guide is so much better than going on the huge tours with a more comprehensive narrative, less wasted time and more relaxed pace. The pricing for TripleLights and Akira's trip were very reasonable. When I return for another visit to Japan, I will first check with TripleLights and Akira for my tours.
