As stated in my review right after our tour, we recommend Hiroshi to you. We took full day tours of both Nara and Kyoto with him. He was enthusiastic and the schoolteacher in him couldn't help but come out. Every now and then, there would be a pop quiz and if you got the answer correct, you would get an enthusiastic "Bingo!" Hiroshi was also very generous with his time, taking us to spots not included on our itinerary. Finally, his tours are a great bargain, perhaps the best deal in Kyoto and Nara!

Hiroshi:
Dear Matthew Thank you,Matthew for your frankly and your heartfelt review on our 2 days trip in Kyoto and Nara. I am still amazing at your son's profound knowledge and understanding of the culture and history of Japan. To tell you the truth, I was not able to give appropriate answers to his tough questions. I have to study more ! I hope I will have the another chance to guide you again in Kyoto in a very near future. Yours May 30,2016 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!

“ 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. Best regards June 9,2017 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ 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
