Let's feel a tranquil atmosphere of Shinto Shrine in the midst of metropolitan Tokyo. After that, you are going to visit Asakusa, which is called “Shitamachi”, low-lying area of a city with small independent shops in Tokyo. Asakusa is a place of hustle and bustle. It always gives a festive atmosphere, quite different from the silence of Meiji Shinto Shrine. I would like you to touch the difference between them. I also would like you to enjoy Japanese cuisine such as sushi, tempura, or soba and so on as you like.

I’m afraid that I cannot have a tour until the infections end.
Could you pay your guide's total transportation fee of the tour at the end of the tour?
Akira-san was our guide during our stay in Tokyo for 2 days. He was the kindest, most considerate and knowledgeable guide ever. He showed us the highlights of Tokyo including a fantastic Sushi lunch. He displayed a great sense of humor giving us multiple quizzes and asking humorous questions. We'll sure come back soon. Regina Haas
Hi, Regina-san. I’m most grateful to you for such an encouraging review! I know it’s not easy for you to write it because you’re still spending busy days during the rest of the tour. As I said, I had a very great time with you because of your kindness and friendship. I hope I’ll have a tour with you again in the future. Thank you again! Best regards, Akira
Our group of 8 had the good fortune of having Akira S as our tour guide for two days in Tokyo. On the first day Akira ensured that we had a great visit to Mt Fuji and the next day he showed us the highlights of Tokyo. We found him to be a most accommodating person who was able to customize the tour as per our requirements. We learnt a lot about the history of Japan, it's culture and cuisine during the sightseeing. Thank you Akira san for showing us the best of your country. With warmest regards, Salim Visram & family
Dear Salim-san and all your family. I’m very happy to receive such an encouraging message. I really had a valuable time for two days. It’s mainly because of your friendship where I feel comfortable. You showed me your interest in Japanese culture and history, so you were always listening to me very earnestly. On the first day, it was an unbelievably beautiful day, when we could enjoy viewing beautiful Mt. Fuji. On the second day, it was drizzling and getting cloudy later, when we didn’t have any trouble for walking at all. We were really lucky! Please come again to Tokyo. I’m very much looking forward to seeing everyone of you. I especially hope your brother-in-law is in good shape. Keep contact! Best regards, Akira
Akira was so helpful on our first day in Japan. He showed us how to use the Tokyo subway and generally how to navigate Tokyo and get our bearings by pointing out landmarks near our hotel. He is gave us history and explanations of the landmarks we visited and took pictures of us at each site. It was so helpful to have a local guide us so we could sightsee despite the jet lag. Highly recommend Akira!
Hello Rachelle and Dan. Thank you for the nice review that would help me keep up good work. Actually I got lost while searching for your accommodations, but that has become a good experience for me. You listened to me eagerly because you are interested in many Japanese things, temples, food, souvenirs, buildings, townscape, and so on. Your review makes all my efforts worthwhile. I myself had a good day with such a nice couple. Thank you again. Please come again, then not in a rush. Best regards Akira
I came with my wife and 6 year old daughter to Japan for the first time. Similarly it was our first tour in Japan and I feel very fortunate to have met Akira-san as our guide. From the moment we met him at the lobby, my family was very well looked after. We had been chatting over a few emails before our tour, so when we finally met, it was like meeting a good friend. Akira-san got along very well with my daughter and took us for amazing sushi at Tsukiji market. We also visited several historical attractions and gained so much knowledge on Japan’s wonderful history. Though I have read a lot about the places before my trip, nothing compares to having Akira-san’s personal and informative lessons to give us deeper understanding to appreciate the attractions even more. He even went out of his way to show us more places since we got along so well. By the end of the tour, it was hard to say goodbye since my family had developed a personal attachment to his very fatherly figure. Without doubt I will definitely recommend Akira san to anyone visiting Japan.
Hello Abilash-san. I hope everyone is well. I appreciate your nice review. I’m greatly honored by your kind words that have motivated me much more to be a guide. I really had a great time with such a friendly family. The fact that you learned about Japanese history, culture, and so on beforehand really surprised me and at the same time helped me be a guide. Thanks to that, I felt more rewarded while I explained something at each site because you could understand many things easily. I’m so glad you had a wonderful experience during your stay in Japan. I hope to see you again. Thank you again for everything! Best regards, Akira
