    Taka is very thoughtful and takes his job very seriously. His no-frill hair place is for customers who appreciate the real Japanese craftsmanship.

    Absolutely fantastic!!! Coming from New Jersey, I had a difficult time finding a good hairstylist that could manage my cowlick-filled, weirdly behaving asian hair. I am so thankful to have found Taka. He was able to give me exactly what I wanted and it was hands-down one of the best haircuts I received in my life (and I have a huge range of good to bad cuts). He is meticulous with his work and my hair naturally took a bit longer than usual, but 100% worth it. Prices are phenomenal too, especially for being located in Boston. Highly recommend!Bonus: text him for an updated schedule (since he has been adjusting from the pandemic), his current schedule works out very well for typical day working folks :)

    I always enjoy the conversation with Taka and he spends one hour for men’s hair cutting only.

    Taka was very professional and gave me the exact style I wanted. I appreciate his attention to detail and will be returning to him in the future! ☺️

    Taka takes haircutting serious! He studied what I would like to do a few times and made sure it's something what I wanted. I am very happy with the cut. Highly recommended!

    I have faithfully traveled 2.5 hours from out of state to get haircuts from TAKA for the past several years. He knows what he’s doing, and it’s definitely worth the trouble to get to Boston to have him but my hair. Highly recommended!!

    I've doing my hair cut with Taka for almost a year now, before that I always struggled with finding a hairdresser who is familiar with Asians' hair for years. I am very busy with school work and I never had time to find a picture for him to cut, I generally just let Taka do whatever he wants to do. Most of the time I just tell him "cut short and thin", but I really liked the work he done everytime! He's careful, patient, nice and really listen what you need and want. Definitely recommend him!

    Taka took really good care of me and was very thorough with my haircut. He’s very patient and detail oriented. I’m very satisfied with my hairstyle every time.
