Akemi was an extremely friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. She spoke English very well and she made my girlfriend and I feel comfortable exploring the city. We were able to see all of the places that we expected to see and more. Because Akemi lives locally, she was able to take us to restaurants, shops and sites that tourists would not normally get to see. Akemi also taught us about Japanese customs, social etiquette and basic words/phrases. She was an absolute delight to spend time with!
We had a real taste of the bustling city of Tokyo. Beautiful autumn gardens, high end designer district and especially the hip fusion of Korean/Japanese shared grill. Very much recommend it. Our guide was very attentive to our needs and comfort in the schedule. There is so much to do in Tokyo we would consider another tour. Many thanks Akemi

Akemi was friendly and knowledgeable with an excellent command of English. She took me on a whirlwind tour of Tokyo where I got to see old and new sites plus we ate some great Japanese food along the way.

Akemi is by far the best tour guide we have ever had worldwide. Very knowledgeable and flexible to our needs. Our primary request was to learn Japan's rather complex transportation system, so she designed a tour to visit sites in a wide range of areas tranferring beetween rail and subway lines. I made a change mid stream and Akemi accommodated and continued without a hitch. Great experience

My family and I had a great time with Akemi as a personal tour guide through central Tokyo. She was knowledgeable on both aspects in history and current trends of places we visited. Best part of it was not planned but she was able to improvised the itinerary based on our children's specific interest Due to Akemi's company, we absolutely enjoyed visiting and learning about various interesting neighborhoods.

Akemi was an excellent guide for our tour in Tokyo. She met us at our hotel and took us around Tokyo to the places we wanted to visit. She was flexible with the destinations and was able to create a customized tour for us. She was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and gave us a "unique local flavor", including a tea ceremony and lunch at a locals only ramen bar in Shibuya! She is highly recommended as a guide, you will not be disappointed!
This is an excellent little tour for families with teenagers- who want a diversion away from temples and shrines. Akemi-san was kind enough to share an insider's list of go to places for last season's pieces - places where models go to sell items post runway. My daughters were mightily impressed.
We had an excellent time with Akemi whom took us to exactly the areas we hoped to see - fun and trendy spots that our three children would enjoy. My son wanted two things - anime and ramen, both were very much covered. Recommended!

Our guide, Akemi, was very nice and punctual. She arranged all the details of our trip to Hakone, including having a driver ready to meet us at Odawara upon our arrival, which made our visit much more enjoyable and efficient. Thank you Akemi, we had a wonderful day cisiting Odawara and Mount Fuji.

Tour was excellent, Akemi did a very good job. We are a family of 6 with a mix of young and teenage children. Akemi showed up on time, was very flexible with finalizing plans for the day and making changes. Throughout the day, she was pleasant to interact with. We toured Asakusa, she arranged a kimono picture shoot (= happy wife!). She also took us to a Japanese dining place for lunch. Food was excellent! During the day, she also educated us on Japanese culture. Would highly recommend her.
