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 day tour of Nara and Kyoto ”

Hiroshi is a good and careful man who will go above what's expected to provide a good trip experience. He's very quick both of mind and body despite his age. The man really likes taking pictures, which he did for us and then sent many of them by mail to our house back in Vietnam. We would recommend him to whomever is interested.

Hiroshi:
Dear Huong Thank you Huong, I am really grateful for your heartfelt reviews on Feb 3 and 4 tour in Kyoto and Nara. You and your friend family's deep concerns and knowledges about the Japanese culture such as tea-ceremony and Japanese garden and Japanese food made me truly surprised. I still feel regrettable that I could not guide you into the Todaiji-temple. Best Regards Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Educational & accommodating ”

Hiroshi was our guide in Kyoto & Nara for 2 days. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. He even took photos of us with his own camera free of charge. He made the tour fun & interesting by asking us questions in a quiz format throughout the tour and purchased chocolates for the winner of the quiz. He adapted the tour based on our interests and went out of his way to find things we were interested in or wanted to do. I highly recommend Hiroshi as a guide for his personal service and excellent attention to his clients.

Hiroshi:

I enjoy givinig questions to my guests and also feel happy to watch that my guests are wondering the answer using their imagination and some knowledges as well. Best Regards Feb1,2017 Hiroshi. Y

“ Day aboard in Kyoto ”

Spending a day with Hiro was the best way to get a good feel for Kyoto, plenty of sights to see and he knew them all! We thought we would only get to see a couple but the pace that he walks we got to see quite a few and he was happy to accomadate us. His knowledge and explainations of the sites made it interesting and educational, with the added bonus of Hiro being a keen photographer he captures all the good photos that you can't get in a selfie. Thank you for your time Hiro and thank you for drop boxing and mailing the photos.

Hiroshi:
Dear Hayley Thank you Hayley for your quick and warm-hearted reviews on your one day tour in Kyoto Jan2,2017.

I hope I would like to guide both of you again to another fantastic spots in Kyoto in a very near future. Jan17,2017 Hiroshi.Y

“ Great way to see Kyoto with a helpful guide! ”

We spent two lovely days in Kyoto with Hiro-san, he was a very helpful and considerate guide! Definitely bring your walking shoes as we packed in a lot of sites. Hiro-san was extremely helpful when our camera got lost on the train (before arriving in Kyoto, and we did get it back thank goodness!), communicating with the train stations, JR offices, etc., and he was very kind to let us use his camera in the meantime (sending the pictures via Dropbox). He was also very flexible around our dietary restrictions by finding places with vegetarian food. His background information around the sites definitely augmented the experience, as we wouldn't have known any of the history without him, his background as a school teacher shows! Thank you Hiro-san for your hospitality and a wonderful tour of Kyoto! ありがとうございました!

Hiroshi:
Dear Shyam I am very grateful to you for your heartfelt reviews. Actually, I feel a bit embarrassed because you gave me so much praised comments on my guiding of you and your family's 2 days tour in Kyoto and Nara. I felt greatly relieved to hear that you did get your highend camera back at Oh-funa lost and found center. I was so surprised that you did take more than 250 pictures with my camera !!! Yours Jan10,2017 Hiroshi.Y
