“ 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

“ Educational & accommodating ”

Hiroshi was our guide in Kyoto & Nara for 2 days. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. He even took photos of us with his own camera free of charge. He made the tour fun & interesting by asking us questions in a quiz format throughout the tour and purchased chocolates for the winner of the quiz. He adapted the tour based on our interests and went out of his way to find things we were interested in or wanted to do. I highly recommend Hiroshi as a guide for his personal service and excellent attention to his clients.

Hiroshi:

“ Day aboard in Kyoto ”

Spending a day with Hiro was the best way to get a good feel for Kyoto, plenty of sights to see and he knew them all! We thought we would only get to see a couple but the pace that he walks we got to see quite a few and he was happy to accomadate us. His knowledge and explainations of the sites made it interesting and educational, with the added bonus of Hiro being a keen photographer he captures all the good photos that you can't get in a selfie. Thank you for your time Hiro and thank you for drop boxing and mailing the photos.

Hiroshi:

“ Great way to see Kyoto with a helpful guide! ”

We spent two lovely days in Kyoto with Hiro-san, he was a very helpful and considerate guide! Definitely bring your walking shoes as we packed in a lot of sites. Hiro-san was extremely helpful when our camera got lost on the train (before arriving in Kyoto, and we did get it back thank goodness!), communicating with the train stations, JR offices, etc., and he was very kind to let us use his camera in the meantime (sending the pictures via Dropbox). He was also very flexible around our dietary restrictions by finding places with vegetarian food. His background information around the sites definitely augmented the experience, as we wouldn't have known any of the history without him, his background as a school teacher shows! Thank you Hiro-san for your hospitality and a wonderful tour of Kyoto! ありがとうございました!

Hiroshi:
Dear Shyam I am very grateful to you for your heartfelt reviews. Actually, I feel a bit embarrassed because you gave me so much praised comments on my guiding of you and your family's 2 days tour in Kyoto and Nara. I felt greatly relieved to hear that you did get your highend camera back at Oh-funa lost and found center. I was so surprised that you did take more than 250 pictures with my camera !!! Yours Jan10,2017 Hiroshi.Y

Hiroshi:
Dear Yana Thank you for your quick reviews on Dec30,2016 one day tour in Kyoto. I felt happy and glad while guiding both of you to a couple of must-see sites such as Sanjyu-Sangendo and Tenryu-ji temple because you showed me a great intersts and concern about Japanese unique culture and tradition. I was so glad when I heared that you said " I am satisfied" after eating late dinner at one of the most traditional buckwheat noodle restaurants in Kyoto. Best Regards Jan7,2017 Hiroshi.Y
