“ A tour well worth the money ”

Although I had an initial problem meeting Hiroshi, he was worth the problem. Hiroshi was extremely knowledgeable about Yokohama in general and Japanese society and culture in particular. He was most willing to adapt the schedule to accommodate my requests about places to visit. I really enjoyed our lunch in Chinatown

Hiroshi:

Dear Judith Thank you very much for your comment. I enjoyed a tour with you in Yokohama. I am very happy to find you satisfied my service. I hope I can be your guide again. Thank you and Best regards

“ A day of sightseeing in Tokyo ”

What an incredible day we had with Hiroshi. From the moment we met him at our hotel we felt very relaxed and comfortable with him. He took us to all the places we wanted to go and he also took us to some special shops that we would never have known to visit. His knowledge of everything is amazing and it was such a wonderful day. Wish we could hire him everyday to walk around with us 😀. Hiroshi is the best tour guide if you have small children as he’s very patient and very friendly. He has been so helpful in planning our whole trip to Japan and I will be telling all my family and friends to book a tour with him!!! 5 star experience with Hiroshi. Thankyou so much.

Hiroshi:

Dear Daniela Thank you very much for your excellent review. I enjoyed a lot with your family. Everyone was so nice and friedly to me. I tried to give you information to make your trip smoother and I hope you will have wonderful time in Japan. If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am more than happy to give you any help. Best regards

“ Three excellent tours with a very well informed guide ”

We spent three fantastic days with Hiroshi exploring contemporary and traditional Japanese culture and visiting Hakone. He was a well informed, interesting and engaging guide who was happy to answer all our random questions about life in Japan. Hiroshi was very organised and made sure that we saw lots of different places in the days we spent with him. He was also invaluable in the run up to the trip, giving us advice on money, travel arrangements and places to visit. I would wholeheartedly recommend Hiroshi as a guide.

Hiroshi:

Dear Sarah Thank you very much for your great review. I am very happy to find you spent good time with me. It was my first time to have a kid as my customer. The happiest thing for me was to see Pat's smile in any places. I hope my guiding supported him to know about Japan as well as you. Please make another chance to visit Japan and to meet again.
