Japan Autumn Colour & Private Tour Specialist

Beautiful Japan is not just a cherry blossom. October & November, Autumn Colour is breathtaking. Akio will create your perfect holiday plan with you.

Your guide is Akio Matsui. Akio was born in Yokohama in 1974 and has called Sydney his home since 1995.  Akio has travelled extensively throughout the world and is proud of his flexible attitude towards situations which arise during or in the planning of tours.  He is respectful of everyone, no matter their background. He loves sport and keeping physically and mentally fit.  He is a keen soccer and tennis player.  He is also deeply interested in the visual arts and music and is constantly on the look out for interesting creative situations.

Akio’s foremost hope is that his customers “fall in love with Japan”.  He loves his home country, its cuisine and gastronomy.  Its delicious sake.  Its hot spring “onsen” culture.  He wants to show his customers Japan’s natural beauty and exciting urban culture.  Its traditions, and its dynamic, ever-changing contemporary life.  Akio hopes you will join him.
