“ Day in Kyoto with Hiro! ”

We decided to get a guide in Kyoto, after arriving to Japan a week earlier after leaving Tokyo. Being from the US, and not speaking the language, it was quite overwelming the first few days, with my wife and two young adult children 18 and 20. We got in touch with Hiro, he responded quickly, asked us what we would like to see and do. We wanted to see Nijo Castle and Kiyomizu temple and eat some local food. He met us the next day right on time, and we were off. He decided the bus system and some short walks was the best way to get around that day, so we were off. He spoke great english , so communication was no problem. We toured the sights, he gave some great explainitions of some of the history of the sites, showed us some great spots around the city which only could be found be a local, ate at some hidden gems that locals ate at. It was one of the highlights of our trip to be toured around the city with him. Thanks Hiro for a great time, when we come back we will definetly give HIro a call to show us around Japan!

Thank you writing great review! It was nice to meet you in Kyoto! All of your family were kind and friendly for me. So I could enjoy guiding a lot too. I was happy to introduce your family about Japanese local knowledge not only historical knowledge. And when I tried to find your ancestor root, it was like detect treasure from few information. I also enjoyed a lot for helping you. I hope I can go fishing at your fancy pond and see your fancy cars!! All the best for your family!! Cheers!!
