About

Hello,
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.

“ Awesome way to see Tokyo ”

Akira organised some great things to see and do which was a good way to spend my first day in Tokyo. He suggested places to eat at and was willing to switch up the lunch plans as I wasn’t too keen on raw fish.

AKIRA:

Dear Paula, Thank you so much for the great review. I am happy to hear that the tour became a good introduction for your first Japan experience. I can easily imagine that the day 2, your first solo flight, was enjoyable one and hoping that the rest of the trip will be so much fun and memorable. Thank you so much for choosing me as your guide and thank you so much for choosing my loving country as your first destination in south east asian country. Sincerely, Akira

“ Great highlights tour ”

We only had one full day in Tokyo but Akita was able to help us pack it full. He has a great knowledge of the history and culture and really knows his way around. He brought us to places we would never have seen as tourists on our own. He made effective use of the transit system to allow us to cover sites far from each other. His command of English is very good. As a bonus he showed us a sushi place near the fish market where the locals eat. Best sushi I’ve had. We highly recommend Akita as a guide in Tokyo.

AKIRA:

Hello Maggie, Thank you so much for the great review. I am so happy that you enjoyed the tour just like I did. It was so nice to walk around the city with robust people like you. I am looking forward to haveing another chance to explore Tokyo together some time soon. Enjoy Hawaii! Sincerely, Akira

“ Excellent experience! ”

Akira delivered as promised and was really knowledgeable, helpful and kind. It was really helpful we had him to help us apply the Suica cards & navigate the JR and metro systems. His food recommendations were also very good and reasonably priced. Very patient with my little boy who was very excited and curious with the train systems. Thank you Akira, for a lovely experience for our first visit to Tokyo, we had a great time!

AKIRA:

Dear Callie, Thank you so much for the greatly review. I am so happy to hear that you all enjoyed the tour. It was my pleasure to guide happy family with active and (very) curious children sharing a great time with them. If you need a navigator for your next visit (I know you already have the little one...) I’ll be very happy to serve you again. Please take care and hope to see you soon. Sincerely, Akira
