“ Couldn't demand more for such an excellent guide ”

Mr. Hiro really amazed us with the Japanese responsible attitude. We are a family with a lot of questions towards the places we went especially on the history with why why why and he always answered our questions so patiently and with jokes (chocolate of course haha) and pop quiz throughout the 4 days tour in Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. Always asking our opinion on the lunch he brought us and he enjoys learning new mandarin words and pronunciation too haha! This is the first time we engaged with a local guide so I was asking plenty of questions before departing through Triplelights and Mr. Hiro is really a very patience guide to reply my every single doubt. Very good body Mr.Hiro have as he always walked energetic in front of us haha. Sorry for bring us to Umeda but we decide not to go up in the last minute. Also much thanks for rushing to get the last entry ticket into Todai-ji Temple before it closed at 5pm, just to let us have a look at the temple. It is really a worth visiting temple among all, so huge and grand. Amazingly built. Thanks for being the all time camera man, responsible guide and the good memories in Kansai area Mr. Hiro, hope we will have another chance to meet again in the near future! Such a fun and knowlegable trip, Take care! People out there, don't hesitate anymore when you are reading my review. Just book and enjoy the reasonable price tour with Mr.Hiro, you will not regret I promise. = ) PS : Really in love with Japan now Thanks with love, Irene & family 24 Oct 2016

“ A rich experience! ”

He is honest person and provides good introduction to the places that we visited. In addition, he lead us to nice food during our way. He knows where to take good photos and offered his guidance on how to go around Osaka on my own. My family are grateful for his time with us. Thanks Ricky Singapore

“ Kyoto Highlights ”

This was the first time we used the services of a guide so we were not too sure what to expect. On meeting Hiroshi (at our hotel) he was friendly and an instantly likeable person. We knew then we would enjoy the day. We saw more of Kyoto than we could have seen by ourselves in a day, and learnt more about Japanese culture and customs. Spoken English was good. From our perspective, it was great to have someone else lead the way and show and explain things to us. The photos he took for us with his camera were great. ( Just make sure you have a dropbox, cloud location or laptop so he can give you the photos)

Hiroshi:
Dear John I feel really grateful to you for the review you have given to me. I feel a bit embarrassed when I read your review of your two day tour with me in Kyoto and Nara because you praised me so much concerning my guidance skills. Your nice reviews encourage me a great deal , thank ypu. Best Regards Nov 28 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ “Wonderful Tour Experience!!” ”

We spent 2 days with our tour guide Hiroshi. Our tour covered Osaka , Kyoto and Nara! It was so nice having someone with us to help us navigate through these places. Hiroshi was very knowledgable and was helped us understand what we were seeing. Plus he was always eager to take pictures of us, which is nice since we are very rarely in vacation photos . Hiroshi recommended a great place to eat and even helped us order some delicious Japanese food. She explained everything and made sure all questions were answered. He also gave reward to those who answered his mystery questions. Again, Hiroshi did a great job we highly recommend him as your guide! We enjoyed every minute of our tours!!! Cheers to triplelights and especially to our guide Hiroshi! Arigatou gozaimasu!

Hiroshi:
Dear Nhelda Thank you Nhelda for your quick mail . I am sorry delaying to send mail for you. I am very grateful to you for your heartfelt reviews on your 2 days trip in Kyoto and Nara. As a former elementary school teather, I still have a habit of giving some kinds of questions to my guests ! I also really enjoyed guiding to all of you charming ladies for 2 days, thank you all.

“ Amazing, knowledgeable, humble ”

We enjoyed 3 tours with Hiro-San and he did not disappoint. He is so kind, and accommodating for each person in the group. He offered to pick up and drop off, teaching our group how to take public transport, and giving great suggestions. As a retired school teacher, Hiro-San knew the history of each place we visited. He was happy to answer any questions and showed great care to know the correct answers. Very punctual, flexible, and organized. In addition to being such a wonderful guide, he was very flexible and pleasant to spend the day with. Hiro is such a great guy, a humanist, and respectable fellow. He will teach you about the Japanese values that we should all try to learn. Lastly, his guide fee is way too low for what he offers. Hiro-San should charge much more, and I would be happy to compensate him for his every effort. Choose Hiro-San for your visit to Kyoto, Nata, and Hiroshima. You will be glad you did. I don't think there is a better, more peaceful, and knowledgeable guide in all of Japan. Thank you Hiro!! We loved all three tours!!

Hiroshi:
Dear Samina Thank you Samina for your warm-hearted reviews on your three days trip in Kyoto,Nara and Hiroshima. I express heartfelt thank s to you all. To tell you the truth, I felt a bit embarrassed when I read your reviews because you praised me so much. I always feel so good when I got a mail which contains " We had a happy and so enjoyable day tour in Japan". You may amazed at to find out the truth that Buddhism and Hinduism have exerted a great influence on the spiritual life of the Japanese. Lastly, I also really enjoyed 3 days trip with you because you showed me great interest about Japanese culture and history. Best Regards Nov16,2016 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Many Beautiful Sights in One Day ”

If you want a packed, full day experience in Kyoto, Hiroshi is a great guide to bring you from one tourist destination to another. He is also very knowledgeable of each site, being able to give interesting facts that would make you appreciate each place better. He also has a good command of English. Just make sure to wear very comfortable walking shoes as Hiroshi can really get you going to as many as 5-6 places in one day.

Hiroshi:
Dear Claudia Thank you Claudia for your early e-mail to me. I am most grateful for the review shown to me for your one day trip in Kyoto. I wish that I would have at least one hour more to guide all of you to the most historical and charming city Kyoto. Still now I wonder if we could meet at your Hotel one hour earlier on that day. Best Regards Nov 16,2016 Hiroshi Yokoyama
