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.

“ Delightful Effortless Tokyo Overview ”

We scheduled a pickup from the cruise ship terminal in Yokohama and Tokyo tour ending at our hotel, as well as a second day tour to help us get an overview and introduce us to Tokyo. Akira was awesome. He was punctual and very pleasant. He drove us all over Tokyo to get a flavor of the different areas. We visited Shrines and temples, gardens and museums I would highly recommend Akira as a guide. He is an excellent driver and very fluent in English. He was fun and informative as he effortlessly drove us all over Tokyo. We would highly recommend Akia if you need a guide in Tokyo.


Thank you Anita. It was really fun and lucky to have wonderful guests like you. It was very hot days due to a typhoon passing and also busy weekends, but you were so cooperative and patient. I hope you love the sandals you bought at Asakusa.

“ Hokane-Tokyo ”

Akira is always on-time even he had to drove long way from Tokyo to Hakone to pick us up. He took us to local places which is very nice and unique. He also choice variety options to make sure we experience the best of our trip. Thanks so much.


Thank you for your good review, Tim. I was so happy to have a nice family like you. Actually, you were very patient and helped me a lot even though the weather was bad in Hakone and you had lots of walking in Tokyo. You and your family are always welcome to come back to Japan. Thanks again. I am so happy to be a part of your memory in Japan.

“ 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!


Helene San Thank you for your heartwarming comments. I am really happy and relieved to read your review. I also had a wonderful time with you. Thank you again for giving me an opportunity to guide you. Hope to see you again. 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.


Kelly san Thank you for your revew. You game me such a good oppotunity to accumulate my experience as a guide. I was really lucky and happy to have you and your family members as my precious guests. Akira
