We are hiring!


We’re looking for a tour guide to join our team.

You’ll wear a costume and show visitors around the exciting area of Akihabara. On our tour we don’t simply point out the sights; our guides use their communication skills to give visitors their own impressions of Japan. Our aim is to give visitors the ultimate welcoming experience that only AKIBALAND TOURS can provide.

In addition to the standard tour guide skills, our guides are expected to develop their skills through our specialized training program.

Are you keen to tell people how awesome Japan is?

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
