One day tour of Tokyo.

We are glad to have Akio as our guide to show us the nice and interesting places in Tokyo. Akio is very patient and never rush us. He told us some history and what is interesting about the places we saw. Without Akio, it would be very difficult for us to go around the subway stations in Tokyo. Thank you Akio.

Akio S.

Thank you very much for your comments. I greatly appreciated you telling me that.
