Akira is knowledgable and friendly. He took us on a sake tour and a visit to the Nissan Heritage Museum. Both were good despite the weather. The Nissan Museum is housed on a Nissan factory site producing a variety of things but the museum is all about the cars. From classic originals and new models to full on race cars the tour is led by staff speaking Japanese which Akira translated for us, but then you are left to your own devices for 45 minutes to take photos or just admire the cars.
