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 very helpful and informative. Pleasant company and a great guide. He planned a really good day for my wife and I. Thankyou.
Dear David, Thank you very much for the great review. It was my pleasure to be a guide for very curious and kind couple from Sidney. I am wishing that the rest of your stay in Japan will be fun and memorable one. If there is anything I can while you are in Tokyo, just contact me anytime. Peace. Akira
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.
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
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.
