“ Osaka, Kyoto ”

Aki provided great education and best of sites through our many tours. He is always well mannered with a grand smile and strategically making the most of our days. We look forward to meeting up with him on our last tour in Kanazawa in a few days. I continue to be very impressed with Triplelights impeccable staff and services. Thank you Aki and Triplelights for making our ventures through Japan amazing and memorable. Linda Bartholomew Linda’s Travel

“ Nara/Osaka Visit ”

Akira was great. Due to dietary restrictions, we were a tricky group to work with. He was very flexible with the itinerary. We enjoyed Nara so much that we spent a majority of our time there. He was extremely knowledgeable about both cities. I would definitely recommend Akira to any group in need of a tour guide.

“ KYOTO TOUR ”

We liked him! He came on time and very patient to us especially to my 3 yr old son. We took a lot of pictures all the time, but he sees to it that we still manage the time to visit more places. He always managed to look for us! What also made him excellent is that he was so concerned about my son because we need to look for a nebulizer machine during the tour. Two thumbs up for Sir Akira!
