“ Arasiyama area/ bamboo forest/ golden pavilion ”

Very good and helpful! I expected though some additional information/history on the visited sights. I heard afterwards that there is a monkey park next to bamboo forest that we would have loved visiting it. Our tour guide didn't mention it.

Hiroshi:
Dear Agni I am grateful to you for your reviews on Ap 10 tour in Kyoto. If I heard that you would like to visit the monkey park located on the eastern side top of the Mt.Arashiyama, I would never recommend you to go to the park. because you have to climb up steep steps and keep walking in a winding path to the park. It will take nearly one hour to the park and another one hour to climb down ! Yours Ap23,2017 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ 2 days plus ”

Hiro co-created a special interest ceramic itinerary, including some tourist highlights; and was flexible and open to new suggestions along the way. He gave us valuable information and insights. Occasionally he was challenged by our more detailed questions but he always made a real effort to understand. He also went to extraordinary lengths to locate and finally recover a cell phone, that we had left in a taxi. What an amazing country Japan is and what a sincere, caring man. Hiro, our Hero!

Hiroshi:
Dear Hazel I say thank you for your heartfelt reviews of the two day's tour in Kyoto. I was really amazed and pleased to find out that both of you were so knowlegeable concerning Japanese arts esp. pottery and ceramics arts. You showed me a deep understanding of Kawai Kanjiro's ceramic masterpieces and carvings. Both of you are the best art lover I have ever seen ! I am also very proud of Japanese people. I said to you " In Japan, if you lost your valuables like a camare or a smart phone or something like that in a taxi, the taxi driver will return it to you 100% " In your friend's case, my prediction did come true. Yours June 25 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Amazing Kyoto ”

Hiro is the best guide for my family. Even though we were a bit late he still managed to give us the best itinerary for the tour. He was very patient with us (because we get tired easily). He gave us options and recommended the best places. He was very professional but at the same time also a fun guide. He asked a lot of questions that would make you think and the answers would make you appreciate more of Kyoto. For us Kyoto was one of the best places we have been to in all of Japan thanks to Hiro. We can't wait to go back and book him again!

Hiroshi:
Dear Maria I am very grateful to you for your nice reviews of your tour in Kyoto to my website. I felt so happy to watch that attractive foreign tourists enjoying Kimono wearing and walking around in Tenryuji-garden and Kinkakuji-temple precincts gracefully. I hope that not only ladies but also mens may enjoy Kimono costume experience in next time visit in Kyoto as well. Best regards June 20 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Outstanding Tour With Hiroshi ”

We truly enjoyed our 1 day Kyoto tour with Hiroshi because we were able to go to a lot of places and historical sites throughout the day and learn facts about the shrines and temples we visited. We requested to go to only 3 places but Hiroshi tried his best to squeeze in more places to visit as many as our schedule permitted. We liked how Hiroshi kept on asking us trivia questions as we went around, making the tour more interactive, fun and interesting. He even gave a prize to whoever had the most number of correct questions at the end of the tour! He not only served as a tour guide but ever so willingly acted as our photographer too which enabled us to collect pictures with full view of the sites we visited with all members of the family together in the pictures which might have been difficult to achieve if we just used a selfie stick. Hiroshi is a very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable guide and we will surely recommend him to our friends and family when they visit Japan.

Hiroshi:
Dear Ariel I am truly grateful to you for your courteous reviews on May11 tour in Kyoto. It's one of the greatest joy for a tour guide like me to see my guest tourists having a happy and pleasant tour! Thank you Mr.Ariel and your family for your cooperation.

“ A Good Trip! ”

Our daughter has asthma, but Mr. Hiroshi was kind enough to work with us on our pace, taking us to a drug store to buy medicines, and mask. At the end of the trip, he was waiting for us to buy sourvenirs, and took us right to the terminal of the bullet train heading back to Tokyo. He also took our pictures, offering to email them to us. Not only that, we forgot our camera in an restaurant, and we had to take a cab to go back to retrieve it. Anyway, he was always smiling, accommodating to our needs. It was such an experiece, and we did not regret on taking this trip. Thank you Mr. Hiroshi! The Thach Family

Hiroshi:
Dear Ngoc Thank you Mr.Ngoc for your heartfelt reviews on May 30 tour in Kyoto. When you did notice that you may forget your camera at a Japanese restaurant, I had a 100 % confidence that the camera might be return to you. I am very proud of Japanese people's honesty and sincerity. I hope we would like to meet again in a very near future and your daughter's disease be compltely recovered. Best regards June 7,2017 Hiroshi Yokoyama
