“ A delightful customized tour in Kyoto! ”

My son and I had a delightful day with Hiro-san as our guide in Kyoto. We had requested the Sagano Bamboo Forest, the Saihoji Temple (moss garden), and the Katsura Imperial Villa--the last two requiring applications--and Hiro-san pulled all of them into our itinerary plus the Togetsu Bridge, lunch at a Japanese restaurant, and a visit to the Nishiki Market (which we requested at the last minute). Hiro-san is a knowledgable, personable, patient and organized guide with a great command of English. We enjoyed bantering with him about all kinds of issues--culture, history, lifestyles, etc. Hiro-san was a great sport about it all, and we enjoyed the tour and our time with him very much. We highly recommend Hiro-san for customized tours.


Dear Carol san, I appreciate your leaving rave review on the tour with me over Kyoto. I had a very pleasant time with you and Keith. I shall be happy if the tour with me would be of help to Keith understand the matters in Japan. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Best regards, Hiroyuki
