Akita Tour Reviews

Akita tour

Toru is a wonderful guide. He was our guide in and around Akita. He is very professional. Every step of our tour ran very smoothly. The timing was good with enough time to see the sights and still get to the next destination. And if you are wondering his English is very good. All in all Toro is a very professional and personable guide. Highly recommend.

Excellent guide- must use for any visiting Akita

We primarily wanted to visit Akita for the Shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary. There is almost zero public transportation to the shrine and English speakers are very rare in this part of Japan. This is where Toru provided top value! He was able to drive us to the shrine, as well as show other activities in Akita including a museum, festival, and views of the park. He even took us to a local coffee house. He also helped us book train tickets on the return trip to Tokyo! In all, we hope to visit Akita again and will definitely be using Toru’s services when we return!

Hi, Tony san Thank you for your wonderful comment. Although the cherry blossoms were not in full bloom, I am glad that you enjoyed the excursion. I called the restaurant about Justine's reading glasses, but they couldn't find them. I just hope they're hidden somewhere in her bag. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Best regards, Toru
