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-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.
Amira immediately asked our interests and organized an appropriate itinerary to see major sites and less major neighborhoods. He was very attentive to how we liked what he showed us, to our location in crowds, to our need for a pause or food. His English is idiomatic (he spent 2 years studying acting in NYC). We got so much more out of our day than if we had set off on our own. We wish we had another day with him. Highly recommended.
My husband and I had quite diverse interests that were not on the usual tourist path but Akira was able to come up with a great itinerary that addressed our varied interests. He was flexible and fun and informative and we really can't say enough good things about him- we enjoyed the day that much! He was able to relate well to both of us and took us to places we would never have found on our own. I'm a licensed guide in my country so I know what makes a good tour (and that this makes me even harder to please!) and Akira was really exceptional.
We met with Akira on the first day of our stay in Tokyo. He is a very friendly and outgoing man, who speaks perfect English. He has a good sense of humor and it was a pleasure to get a basic introduction to Tokyo during out few hours together. I would definatively recommend Akira.
