“ Amazing, knowledgeable, humble ”

We enjoyed 3 tours with Hiro-San and he did not disappoint. He is so kind, and accommodating for each person in the group. He offered to pick up and drop off, teaching our group how to take public transport, and giving great suggestions. As a retired school teacher, Hiro-San knew the history of each place we visited. He was happy to answer any questions and showed great care to know the correct answers. Very punctual, flexible, and organized. In addition to being such a wonderful guide, he was very flexible and pleasant to spend the day with. Hiro is such a great guy, a humanist, and respectable fellow. He will teach you about the Japanese values that we should all try to learn. Lastly, his guide fee is way too low for what he offers. Hiro-San should charge much more, and I would be happy to compensate him for his every effort. Choose Hiro-San for your visit to Kyoto, Nata, and Hiroshima. You will be glad you did. I don't think there is a better, more peaceful, and knowledgeable guide in all of Japan. Thank you Hiro!! We loved all three tours!!

Hiroshi:
Dear Samina Thank you Samina for your warm-hearted reviews on your three days trip in Kyoto,Nara and Hiroshima. I express heartfelt thank s to you all. To tell you the truth, I felt a bit embarrassed when I read your reviews because you praised me so much. I always feel so good when I got a mail which contains " We had a happy and so enjoyable day tour in Japan". You may amazed at to find out the truth that Buddhism and Hinduism have exerted a great influence on the spiritual life of the Japanese. Lastly, I also really enjoyed 3 days trip with you because you showed me great interest about Japanese culture and history. Best Regards Nov16,2016 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Enjoyable Kyoto Day tour with a creative and informative guide ”

We have Hiroshi as our guide for our day tour in Kyoto. Our first impression of him was that he was quiet and not so approachable. But soon after we reached our first destination, he started to crack jokes and gave us quizzes to help us learn about the things we saw and place we visited. It was creative and interactive. He carried a camera with him and took pictures of us at the best spots. He was also flexible and allowed us to change our places to visit very last minute. We visited Gion instead of the Nishi Market. Gion is an interesting place to visit - beautiful scenery. We managed to see a few Geisha and Maiko. Thank you Hiroshi.

“ Our Kyoto Experience with Hiroshi ”

Hiroshi made our tour fun! We were a big group. I can imagaine that it must be hard for any tour guide to keep his audience interested and focused. But Hiroahi was able to do that by adding question and answer games in the tour bus. It was very entertaining! He knew.much about Kyoto and we had a great experience touring Kyoto even with the rain. Thank you Hiroshi! More success to you!

Hiroshi:
Dear Maria I am so grateful to hear that all of the guests enjoyed touring in ancient city Nara and one of the most charming city in Japan,Kyoto as well,thank you. I also felt so happy that you showed me much cooperation durinig the long one day bus tour. Best regards Ap22,2017 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Arasiyama area/ bamboo forest/ golden pavilion ”

Very good and helpful! I expected though some additional information/history on the visited sights. I heard afterwards that there is a monkey park next to bamboo forest that we would have loved visiting it. Our tour guide didn't mention it.

Hiroshi:
Dear Agni I am grateful to you for your reviews on Ap 10 tour in Kyoto. If I heard that you would like to visit the monkey park located on the eastern side top of the Mt.Arashiyama, I would never recommend you to go to the park. because you have to climb up steep steps and keep walking in a winding path to the park. It will take nearly one hour to the park and another one hour to climb down ! Yours Ap23,2017 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Kyoto in a day ”

Hiroshi was able to take us to all the highlights even though I am sure we were the slowest tourists in all of Kyoto. He made the day fun and was able to anticipate when we were tired and needed a break. He took us to all the primary temples in Kyoto and was able to provide the background and history of each site. He even found a specialty vendor when my husband mentioned wanting to see some Japanese craftsmanship tools. I am sure this had never been requested before.

Hiroshi:
Dear Ellen I always feel happy when I received an e-mail reviews from my guests in which they had a pleasant trip in my private tour. I was a bit amazed that your husband had a deep interst concerning Japanese craftsmanship cutlery and he purchased two kinds of the tools in a craftsmanship tool shop one in Kyoto and one in Nara respectively! I say thank you again for your cooperation during two days tour in Kyoto and Nara. Best Regards Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Kyoto Tour ”

Hiroshi took us on a tour of Kyoto. Arashiyama, Bamboo Forest, Lunch, and Gion Cultural Center. Our meeting site was on the 2nd floor of the JR Kyoto station. We were on the first floor so it took some time to find. Would have been better to meet on the first floor since that's where the tour started. Hiroshi is a fast walker and for us a little too fast since my mom was on a wheel chair.

Hiroshi:
Dear Eloise I have to express sincere apologies to you all esp. your mom and you. I should give you more detailed information in terms of transportation system, how to use lift and itinerary etc. before we make a tour in Kyoto and Osaka respectively. I should walk slowly and give you more relaxing time. Yours Ap22,2017 Hiroshi Yokoyama
