Fun full-day tour for family

Through a mix of walking, train and street car (local tram), Akira took us to shrines, temples, shopping districts, and residential areas (including an authentic local restaurant for a sushi and katsu-style lunch). Akira was great to deal with prior to the tour and tailored the day for us. During the tour, Akira efficiently moved us from place to place and allowed enough rest/drink/donut stops. A couple of other things: His English is very good. He took many lovely photos of us throughout the day (after asking if ok) and air-dropped them to us at the end of the tour. He gave us numerous tips for other places we could visit based on our questions. Akira is a great man and the perfect guide. We had a great day, thanks Akira.

Dear Darren, Thank you so much for the great review. I am so happy that you liked the tour and enjoyed limited seven hours FULLY. It is always my joy to share what I love, places, restaurants, shops, and people (such as the grandma in the fruit stand. I am so glad you liked what I like. I hope that you get the idea of what it is like to be a local in Tokyo and I hope that this Japan trip makes you come back to the country again. Thank you so much for having me this time, and thank you so much for being nice, sincere and paying respect to local people and their customs. I am looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city together. Sincerely, Akira

Amazing “Local Insight” Tour

Our family really enjoyed and appreciated Akira’s insightful tour of Tokyo. Highlights included not just visiting the main tourist attractions but more importantly, seeing the side of Tokyo not available in “cookie cutter” (usual) tours — the various neighborhoods and sites that are off the beaten path. Akira is easy going and accommodating — and that helps with teens/kids. Also, his knowledge and insight was remarkable. And his English is fluent thanks to his love for 1980’s American TV shows!!!!

Dear Sam, Thank you so much for the great review. And thank you so much for your kind words on my English proficiency. I am so happy that my "study", through memorizing opening monologue of "Heart to Heart" and "The A-Team", have helped what I do for living. We have seen different districts in the city and enjoyed enjoyed different vibes. We had nice shaved ice and good meal in a very local atmosphere. I hope that you got the idea of what it is like to be a local in Tokyo and I hope that the tour has become good introduction for your Japan trip. Thank you so much for having me this time, and I am looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city together. Sincerely, Akira

Amazing Day!

We had an amazing day with Akira exploring off the beaten path neighborhoods! We wanted someone on the first day of our trip to help us, and he was perfect at teaching us the customs and how to use the subway! The restaurant he took us to was incredible and in a fun area of Tokyo we would have never gone by ourself. He is so knowledgable about Tokyo and answered all of our questions and was patient. I would recommend Akira and would use him again in a heartbeat!

Howdy Nicole, Thank you so much for the great review. I am so glad that you enjoyed the tour focusing more on what I call "Tokyo with No Makeup". It is so nice to see you and your jolly family, including 2 "studs (Am I spelling right?)", enjoying vibes of each of the neighborhoods, local foods, and enjoying exchange with local people that we met today. Thank you so much for treated me like your family's new friend. I am looking forward to another chance to explore my loving city together. See you next time, and enjoy the rest of the days in Japan. Sincerely, Akira
