And you pass under the Tenpozan Bridge, which is a white cable-stayed bridge that has a structure with the bridge beams supported by cables.  On the left side you see USJ, or Universal Studio Japan.  Last year(2014) under the influence of Harry Potter Opening, nearly 13 million tourists visited USJ.  It was the highest record ever and surpassed the number visiting the USJ of Holywood and Florida in U.S.A.  We can see the tower of Hogwarts Castle and roller coaster.

“ Full-service guide that kept our large group moving ”

Excellent
3 weeks ago Traveler: Todd -   Tour Guide: Hideo

Hideo was a super tour guide! We booked professional tours through the cruise ship at other destinations, and this tour was very comparable to those, at a fraction of the cost. I can highly recommend Hideo, based on this experience. I helped to organize the tour with Hideo for a group from Cruise Critic, that ended up being 25 people. Hideo consolidated all of the costs (travel, entry fees...

“ Himeji tour ”

Poor
1 month ago Traveler: Sandy -   Tour Guide: Hideo

A group of six adults had arranged for Hideo to meet us at the ship and take us to the castle and adjoining gardens and then go on the rope way above the town. We found to our disappointment that Hideo had no interest in the group. He rarely volunteered any information, but did have some answers if we persisted with questions. One of our party was using a walkingstick and he showed no inter...

“ Exceptional Guide ”

Hideo was a real find. Our group of 6 engaged him to escort and guide us around Osaka, with transportation and sightseeing through Nara and three days of touring in Kyoto. We found him to be very personable and articulate. Hideo was extremely knowledgeable about each of these destinations, as well as how to navigate them and avoid the crowds. He went above and beyond to make what was a first trip ...

“ Excellent 1-Day tour of Kyoto with Hideyoshi-san ”

Excellent
1 month ago Traveler: Anushila -   Tour Guide: Hideo

As a private group of 6 individuals on a tightly scheduled vacation, we had requested an 8-hour customized itinerary that would allow us to visit the top 4 attractions in Kyoto and allow us to travel from Tokyo via Shinkansen and return the same evening. We had also requested Hideyoshi-san to arrange a private taxi/van for us as we wanted to spend more time at the sites versus navigating public tr...

“ Hideo was a life saver! ”

Excellent
1 month ago Traveler: Chris -   Tour Guide: Hideo

We booked an afternoon tour with Hideo, but unfortunately I had an accident as our tour was to begin. Hideo went above and beyond what any guide would do, meeting us at the hospital, arranging transport and even returning the next day to help us make it onto our train on time. Words cannot express how indebted to him we are for his help. You won't find a more compassionate human to spend time with...

Hides wasn’t a guide I expected. He was good in planning the tour and memorizing facts but I like talking to people. Hideo wasn’t open to a free conversation or questions.

The two days tour was really an amazing experience. We had a fantastic tour with our tour guide Hideo. He has a very good knowledge about all the places that we visited and showed us some pictures. He was able to answer all my queries about these places and his English was easy to understand compared to my previous guide. We used the public transportation which I really liked and which we had neve...
