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.

Akira was an exceptional tour guid. We used him for two full days. We visited numerous points throughout Toyko. He was extremely flexible, especially when we had decided to make some last minute changes along the way. He also took us to some very unique, locals only places, that we likely would have never expericed had we done things on our own. Thanks to Akira we were able to make the best use of our time in Tokyo. Akira is a great ambassador to his nation and does a more than sufficant job of explaining everything in great deatail. You will not be disappointed if you use him as your guid.
We had a day you’re with Akira in Nov 17. Akira is a fantastic guide, fluent in English, very knowledgeable of Tokyo, Japanese customs and traditions, and Local history. He met us at our hotel on time and organised a great introduction to Tokyo tour for a full day. I would happily do another tour with Akira and would recommend him to others. We are a family with two teenage children from Australia and only speak English.
We had the best day in Tokyo with Akira! We only had two full days here, so I wanted to see as much as I could in a short time. I definitely recommend one of these tours if you are pressed for time, or even if you aren’t! On our tour, we took the train to Asakusa, Akihabara, Meiji Shrine, and Harajuku. We stopped at a rabbit cafe and a really good ramen restaurant in Akihabara. Akira was very flexible, patient and was willing to take us wherever we wanted to go. He answered all of our many questions about Japanese culture and pretty much anything else we could think of. We never felt awkward or uncomfortable, and the conversation flowed so nicely all day. Harajuku was the last stop, and he was so patient while my daughter was shopping. We talked and laughed the whole time, and It felt like we were with a friend rather than a guide. It was hard to say goodbye, and I can’t even say enough good things about him! When we come back to Tokyo, I want to look him up and hang out with him again! I highly recommend him, and this website for great, friendly guides.
Akira-san took good care of us over the 2 days. He took pains to tailor the tour to our preferences. He is very knowledgeable about Tokyo and took us to some good local eating places. We enjoyed our tour thoroughly and would recommend Akira-san without hesitation.
Liked our walk and subway ride through Tokyo’s famous places.
