Hiroshi is a very enthusiastic and energetic tour guide. His love of teaching (formerly a school teacher) is apparent. He is perhaps the best value for your money in Kyoto and Nara!

Hiroshi:
Dear Mattthew Thank you for your warm-hearted review on your trips in Kansai area. I was really amazed to find out that your son's deep knowledge of Japanese history and culture. Until so far I have never met the person who is so well informed in Japanese culture like your son. To tell you the truth, I worried whetheror not I could give him a correct answer. Yours June9,2016 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:

I enjoy givinig questions to my guests and also feel happy to watch that my guests are wondering the answer using their imagination and some knowledges as well. Best Regards Feb1,2017 Hiroshi. Y

“ 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:
Dear Hayley Thank you Hayley for your quick and warm-hearted reviews on your one day tour in Kyoto Jan2,2017.

“ 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

Thank you Hiroshi San for an amazing experience! We were able to see so much! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and making the day fun!

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
