My husband and I can tell how passionate Hiroko is with her work as a private guide. She made our day trip to Nara amazing with her efficient mapping of the day’s transportation (bus and train). What’s great was the additional attractions we saw in between each attraction. We started our day with the botanical garden (super peaceful and beautiful) then went to Todaiji Temple to see the Great Buddha (largest bronze Buddha in the world) and it was truly a magnificent sight! Then she picked a unique sushi restaurant for our lunch where the sushi was wrapped in persimmon leaves - the presentation was very elegant and all of the food tasted wonderful. We also went through the deer park and it was just like being in a fairy tale, with Bambi and her mom touring Nara with us for the day. The agenda was well thought out and we’re just so grateful to have found such an amazing guide. We look forward to her guidance in the future as she was just a joy to be with! Thank you for all that you did to make our last day in Japan marvelous. Also, she had really good English speaking skills so we had no trouble understanding any of her explanations of the attractions which made our conversations with her much more enjoyable.
Thank you very much for your prompt and generous review, Katiya. I feel greatly flattered. Both you and Tim are kind and friendly, and I was so fortunate to have such nice guests! I really hope that I will see you and your beautiful sons sometime in the near future. Please have a safe trip back to the U.S. All the best, Hiroko
