My name is Akira.
I am certified national guide interpreter.
I have been living in Tokyo for more than 30 years.
I love walking in the city with no particular plan finding trasures in the streets such as nice ramen noodle restaurants, cafes, funny billboards, and most of all, narrow alleys that remind me of good old days.
I will help you enjoying the days in the city fully and making your vist memorable one.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon.

My husband and i had such a great day with Akira. He was kind enough to collect us from our hotel, chat through lunch options whilst walking to the train and teaching us the train and subway system as we went. Was a very fast paced day to see many sights which was great for us having such a short day in Tokyo. Would not have been able to see and learn so much by ourselves. Akira put us at ease and it was easy to follow him around for the day and have our questions answered. He was also kind enough to find us a local coffee house to have traditional iced coffee on a hot afternoon and give us further recommendations and tips on travel. Thanks so much to Akira, looking forward to returning next year and will be in touch with you again. Kate & Marko
Akira gave us a perfect introduction to Tokyo. We were quite overwhelmed when we arrived but he helped us to see the highlights and answered all our questions about Japanese culture. Would highly recommend Akira!
Communication with Akira prior to the tour was great. He was very professional, prompt and knowledgeable about the area, very patient and helpful with our large group.
My family of 4 (two 4 year old boys) went to the Imperial palace, Tokyo Tower, Tsukiji Fosh Market and Asakusa using the subway/jr Systems. We had sushi in the outer market, coffee (while the boys napped on our laps), street foods and some good history/culture too! Akira was great with our boys and us. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and appreciated his guidance. His patience and flexibility to do what we wanted was just what we were looking for! Highly reccomend! And his English was great!
We spent a wonderful day with Akira touring the sights in Tokyo. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and articulate. He customized the tour to meet our interests, and even helped us visit a small local restaurant for lunch that we never would have been able to visit on our own. He showed us how to navigate the Tokyo subway system so we felt comfortable venturing out on our own after the tour. We highly recommend Akira. He provides a fun, relaxed, and informative introduction to the city! Amy and Roberto, Rhode Island USA
