My girlfriend and I spent a full day touring Kyoto with Hiro Inoue in May 2019. Hiro was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. During our tour, we visited the Fushimi Inari Shrine, Nishiki Market and Ryoan-ji Temple. We had independently purchased tickets for a private tea ceremony for the same day as our tour and Hiro escorted us to ceremony location (Which was a 40 minute bus ride) and stayed with us throughout making the whole travel experience very comfortable. Hiro also brought his own professional camera and took photos of us during the day and emailed us a link to download the photos a day later (great photos). Hiro speaks good English and has a very nice demeanor. I would highly recommend him if you are interested in a tour in Kyoto or the surrounding area.
Thank you very much for sweet reference. I was happy to escort both of you that day. Both of you respected Japanese rule, custom and culture. I hope you could get some nice things while I guided such as local spilt and hidden knowledge. Also I could get happiness from your couple. I will try to find a girlfriend soon. He he! Cheers ;)
