I have been working as English speaking guide and translator since 2010 and experienced more than 600 travels. And I am a member of Japan Guide Association with grade A qualification.
My specialty is customized private tour from day trip to 3 week excursion. Also, private tour in motorcycle is in my turf. I have been riding long distance in tens of years in Japan and overseas.

I offer in PER TOUR bases only, so please give me your inquiry with specific destinations, spots, itinerary, group size and privatized transportation if chosen, and let's start planning your customized journey together.

“ History, Culture, Religion and Shopping - Expertly handled in under 5 hours ”

My family and I were enjoying our time in Japan, but struggled to really take in the culture and history of such a wonderful country and city (Tokyo). We chose to do an English tour to help us better immerse ourselves. Akira was responsive and worked with me to cover the things I thought myself and my family would enjoy most. Akira communicated well and I never had a problem speaking the entire time in English. We met Akira on time at a metro station five minutes from our hotel, which was very convenient. Akira walked us through the agenda again and we were off, navigating the metro like pros. We chose first to go to a temple, then the Imperial Palace gardens, then to Hirijuku for a special treat and all the shopping we wanted. Throughout the trip Akira talked about the Japanese history, t... read more

“ Mt Fuji Motorcycle Tour ”

As the weather was on and off Arti kept in constant communication on go/no go. Everything was a breeze from getting to the Kofu bike shop from Tokyo, renting the bike and the tour itself. Arti is extremely knowledgeable and very kind to stop and explain the history and culture of what we are viewing. 5 star day all around. Next time we will definitely go again with Arti for tours if we are around Japan. Pleasure to have had Arti lead our family on the motorcycle tour.

Akira.K:

Thank you very much for your favorable comments. The weather wasn’t perfect but we could enjoy Mt. Fuji area. I will keep improving my tours.

“ Awesome Mt. Fuji Tour ”

Akira (aka Arti) is a great guide. Very knowledgable of the area, kept on schedule, and provided us all of the points in the itinerary. He had fun stories and was great with conversation. He even provided some pointers for shopping for specific souvenir items. Although it is an extra few hundred dollars, the private taxi is worth his recommendation for the Mt. Fuji area - we wouldn't have been able to see everything without it.

Akira.K:

Thank you very much for your favorable comments. I will make my efforts to make my tours even better for the future.

“ Day trip to Mt Fuji ”

What an amazing day and what and amazing Tour Guide. We met Akira on the train and he had arranged a private driver and car as per our request. Akira made the day so run smoothly and made the day very interesting. He was happy to answer all our questions and more than happy to make changes during the day as the weather was spectacular. We were a group of 4 adults who enjoy seeing the amazing mountains. Our tour meant that we did not see many other tours despite it being peak season which just made the day all the more special.

Akira.K:

Thank you very much for your favorable comments. I will make my future tours even better.
