Akira certainly has a keen interest in Japanese history and we learned a lot during the day with him. We also walked a lot which was sometimes a bit challenging as it was a very hot day. But we did enjoy it very much. There is so much to see in Kyoto! We particularly loved the walk through Gion's narrow streets and the information about the area - little things that we would not have noticed. Thank you Akira for sharing your knowledge with us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ralf Thank you so much for your nice rating. It was nice and cooler day in this hot summer. I am glad that you enjoyed Kyoto with me. I hope that you would come back to Japan again Akira

Akira did a great job. Very informative and pleasant. Just know you need to be prepared to walk a bit to catch the public transportation. I would book with him again as well as recommend him to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear George Schaeffer Thank you so much for your nice rating. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed Kyoto with me. I was nice meeting with you and I enjoyed with you and your nice group. I hope that your leg will be better soon. Akira

Akira - "Aki" is a very knowledgable guide he gave us a very complete one day tour of Kyoto. He is a complete gentleman and also helped us with Japan Rail reservations. He is very knowledgable about the history of Japan and the various temples and shrines around Kyoto. He was very sweet with my wife and 3 kids and showed some nice patience. I highly recommend him - he even found a complete gem of a restaurant (only 153 year history!) and we had a great time with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brian Thank you so much for your nice rating I am glad to hear that you enjoyed Kyoto with me. It was nice time with you and your nice family and I learned many things from you. Thank you very much and come back to Kyoto again. Akira
