A Recent Review of this tour

Akira is very knowledgeable about the history of Nara, and the religions of the area. He was very caring of my husbands physical limitations, and made accommodations to his needs. He also made suggestions on places we should visit in our last days in Osaka. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Akira, and would recommend him to anyone.
