About

Hi, I usually work as a limousine driver in Tokyo and just started my career as a tour guide as well.
Since I have taken many guests and their tour guides for 8 years, I am quite experienced and ready
for being your guide for sure. I can't wait for taking you so many must-see spots and explaing Japanese unique culture and history, but promise you smooth trasportation as possible as I can.
I went to a college for two years and a university for one year approximately in California.
My hometown is Akita, northern parts of Japan, where is famous for good food, sake, and
hot springs.

“ Mr. Akira is a Wonderful Driver and Guide! ”

We had a 12-hour layover in Tokyo. I was sent several offers from different guides/drivers answering my request to try make a fun day out of our short time frame. Mr. Akira not only provided the best price, but is a guide and driver. He is patient and thoughtful and really listened to what we were interested in, and then was flexible in trying to fit in as much as he could per our personal interests. His English is excellent. It was a pleasure to spend the day with him, and I can only hope he felt the same way after carting us around for hours! Thank you, Mr. Akira!

“ Very good experience to Mt Fuji ”

It was our first time to Japan and first time using the service from Triple Lights. We have received several offers from other guides but we finally settled with Mr Akira. He had offered the best price and he can accommodate most of our request. He is very patient and always prompt reply. We are very happy with his service. Another good thing about Mr Akira, he speaks good English. We will recommend him to our friends.
