Akira is an excellent guide who really knows the area and history. Most importantly he knows how to use buses, trains and subways to get to the destination efficiently. He listened to what we wanted and he delivered a fabulous day in Kyoto!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Betty Thank you so much for your nice compliment. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed Kyoto with me. I also enjoyed the tour with you. Please come back to Japan again since there a lot of places to see in Kyoto . Thank you so much Akira
Aki was knowledgeable in the history of Kyoto. He used our early start well by taking us to popular areas before the large crowds arrived. We enjoyed a traditional Japanese lunch together and even managed to squeeze in an extra site as time permitted. Appreciated the flexibility of the tour, thanks Aki. Rob & Ang, Australia

Alina AkramUnited States
Akira was a wonderful guide! We got a chance to visit several of Kyoto's beautiful sites; including the Fushimi Inari Shrine, the Kinkaku-ji Temple, the Higashiyama District (so amazing), Kiyomizu-dera Temple on Mount Otowa, the Gion district and had an authentic, delicious Japanese lunch with Akira. Without this tour there would have been no way we could have enjoyed so many sites. We learned a lot, while seeing some of the most beautiful places Kyoto has to offer. I highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alina Thank you so much for your nice rating. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed Kyoto with me. I enjoyed with a nice couple like you in Kyoto,too. Please come back to Kyoto again. Thank you very much Akira

It was no problem chatting to Akira via email before we went and we were able to customise our tour accordingly.Akira was very knowledgeable about the sites, spoke fluent English and made the tour very fun.He also gave us helpful tips for our solo site seeing days in Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima and Miyajima.Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Grant Elliot Thank you so much for your nice rating . It was nice to see you and your nice students I hope that I can see you again Akira
Aki had taken the time to prepare our itinerary recognising that it was busy New Year Day and we had a good day seeing fantastic highlights. We enjoyed seeing the monkeys, rock garden, golden pavilion and Gion District and travelled extensively around Kyoto. You simply can't do these tours on your own and need a guide like Aki to show you round.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Martin Thank you so much for your nice review It was nice meeting with you and your nice family. I also enjoyed our tour with you. I hope that you like Japan. Please come back to Japan Thank you Akira
