We booked 2 tours with Hideo Yoshida. One full day tour in Osaka and Nara and another full day tour in Kyoto including Arashiyama. From my first email to inquire about private tours, Hideo sent a reply very fast. As we discussed our itinerary, I sent many emails with many questions and he was very patient, efficient and prompt in replying to my emails. Because of his fast replies with complete details, we were able to finalize our booking in a very short time. The most important thing I appreciate about Hideo is his EXTRA help with my other requests that are outside of the tour services that we booked with him. He helped us book our transportation for sightseeing including for places that we visited without a guide. He also helped us think of activities we can do for the new year, helped us arrange for a wheelchair when we needed one and helped us purchase our theme park special passes. He even sent me more emails with additional information that he suggested based on our interests. He made extra preparations for our tours by giving us folders with maps and brochures about the places we visited. For our tour without a guide, he made sure our transportation with wheelchair was arranged, he forwarded to me name and contact details of driver in advance so we can easily find him when he picks us up in our hotel. Hideo is an experienced and very knowledgeable guide. He is also very detailed and well organized. The best thing about Hideo is he goes the extra mile to help us with all our needs and requests. We were able to make the most out of our sightseeing with Hideo's guidance. I would like to thank him for all his help in making our trip memorable and worthwhile.

Hideo:
Dear Jennifer I am very glad to receive your message. I was relieved to hear you could enjoy yourself on 1-Jan new year(2016). We had a great time in Nara, Osaka and Kyoto, so I miss you and your group. I wish you a happy new year and I'll do my best as a tour guide. Thank you very much, Jennifer!! Best regards, HIDEo YOSHIda

“ Hideo Toshida ”

We engaged Hideo to travel with us for 9 days to Hiroshima, Matsue, Nagano, Matsumoto, Takayama, Kanazawa and Toyama and nearby, satellite areas. Hideo's preplanning and travel scheduling was highly professional. He was attentive and accommodating to all our requests, making the experiences special. His knowledge of all things Japan was excellent, answering all our questions thoughtfully. We left the whole itinerary planning to Hideo and we were most happy with the total outcome. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to the mountains along the snow covered Alpine Way at the end of our visit. Many thanks Hideo and best wishes Peter & Ann Jarman

“ We enjoyed ourselves - Beautiful Place and Great Guide ”

We had Hideo as our guide on 11 April 2017 for our trip to Yoshino. He was punctual to pick us up from our hotel, organized - presented us with the itinerary and informative. Yoshino - nice place for cherry blossom viewing and walking. You get to see nice views as well as street food and souvenirs. Hideo is very helpful, he brought us to buy our Shinkansen ticket from Kyoto to Tokyo. Without his help, we might take a long to time to figure out where to buy the tickets. He also brought us to eat Okonomiyaki, showed us around Dotonbori and brought us to the shops we wanted to shop. Thank you, Hideo! We enjoyed ourselves very much.

Hideo:
Hi Grace I am very glad to receive your message. Thank you for joining mty tour. We could enjoy cherry blossom viewing in Nara Yishino, one of the three major cherry blossom sights in Japan. We saw the "Goma (holy fire) ritual" held by women Buddhist monks. After returning to Osaka, we had Osaka local food, Okonomiyaki for dinner. I'm sure you enjoyed Japan. I hope you come back to Japan again, Thank you Best regards HIDEo YOSHIa

“ Hideo made my trip to Japan so enjoyable ”

He was not only knowledgeable but so friendly and courteous. English was good, had no trouble communicating. Not only did we see main sights in Kyoto and Hiroshima but he pointed out subtleties that many would have missed. On top of it all he is also a really nice man. I recommend him highly!

Hideo:
Hi William I am very glad to receive your message. We could arrive in Miyajima just at high tide, so we could see as of the Great Vermilion Shrine Gate were floating on the sea. In the Peace Memorial Park I 'd like to say thank you for giving me a piece of important information. I hope you come back Japan again. Thank you. Best regards HIDEo YOSHIda
