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!

“ Fantastic Day Trip in Tokyo ”

Aki was well prepared and thoughtful throughout the day. She planned for us and took into consideration time for rest for my father. She ensured that we had a great time and in no way did we feel rush or pressured for the next destination. Thank you Aki and we hope to meet you again!


Thank you for your kind words! I tried my best to plan the tour enjoyable and relaxing, but you and your father made it true! I enjoyed the sites, food, and conversations with you very much. I hope to see you both again, and also your wife and children next time ;-) Aki

“ A competent and committed guide ”

We spend two days in Tokyo with Aki, and we where very happy for The guidance, and for her help with practical things such as finding the train, buying Suica card and helping us finding the Way to our next destination. She also had a great knowledge of history, culture and The society in general. She was able to answering all our silly questions, and she gave us an idea of the way a japanese family are living. We where a family, with to parents and a son and daugther which was 19 and 22, and Aki where a natural part of our group at the very beginning. We had especially such a funny and amazing visit at a maidcafe, which we all enjoyed..” kawaii” is the best word to express it.


First, I'm very glad to know that you all arrived in Denmark safely. I already miss you and your family, as I also enjoyed the two days so much! It was interesting to know the things you are curious about Japan, especially when I thought they were just so normal for me but were unique for first-time visitors. I'm also glad that I could learn a lot about Denmark, too, not from travel books or internet, but through lots of conversations with you. It made me feel I would like to visit there someday! I'm looking forward to seeing you again, and experiencing many new "kawaii" & "oishii" things together. Thank you for taking your time for writing a wonderful review. Aki

“ 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
