Greetings from Japan! Are you excited to visit Japan? Are you curious about Japanese food? Please tell me what kind of things you are interested in.
To make your trip memorable, it’s nice to make your own plan, but it’s also a good idea to hire a professional guide and customize your trip. You can visit various places efficiently, the guide might know secret shortcuts, good places to eat, places that are off the beaten path, and you can always ask any questions that you are curious about, such as Japanese way of thinking, manners, experiences, etc.. I’m Aki, a licensed guide-interpreter. I’m happy to give a tour to help this visit be a memorable one for you!

“ Winging it in Tokyo with Aki :-) ”

Aki was a blast! She guided me and a couple of my coworkers to the Tsukiji fish market. What a site to see the historical market before it moves. Aki was very knowledgeable and gave us great in site on the market and its history. From there just Aki and I headed over to Shibuya for sushi at Uobei and that was an awesome experience! We walked around Shibuya saw the sites, hit a few shops and finish our tour at the world famous Hachikō statue. What an amazing dog Hachikō was. My tour with Aki was absolutely amazing. She was so polite and friendly and I had a wonderful tour with her. Thank you Aki! Hope to see you soon when I’m back in Japan. -Mark-


I enjoyed the tour with you and your coworkers, too! You were all fun & nice people to spend time with ;-) I'm glad you could visit the world's biggest and historical fish market Tsukiji before it moves to Toyosu in October. I guess Toyosu will be a bigger market, so maybe we can visit the brand-new market next time. There are still many other wonderful places that I would like to introduce, so please do come back again. I'll wait to hear from you with Hachi(^-^) Thank you for your kind review. Take care! Aki
