“ Awesome walking tours ”

Our time with Mori was excellent. We had reserved him for 3 days in during our stay in Tokyo and he planned them in an organized fashion. Mori speaks fluent English and was excellent at explaining the historical and modern importance of the various sites we had visited. We were a party of 8 so it was a big group, but Mori had no problems keeping us together.


Dear Bruce, Thank you for your review. I enjoyed touring and talking with you, too. Hope to see you and your family members again. Best regards, Hideki Mori

“ Wonderful Time at Mount Fuji ”

Mori-San is a very knowledgeable and articulate guide with an expansive world view. If you wish to get in-depth information of Japanese history & culture, he is definitely the right person to accompany you on your trips. He impressed us with his planning and advice even before we meet him. We had no difficulty planning our itinerary with his guidance. Although we visited Tokyo and Mt Fuji in bad weather (heat wave and typhoon) forecasted, he made good suggestions to work around the weather, ensuring that we do not waste any precious time. Finally, he is very flexible which is important as our group which consisted of my elderly parents who have problems walking. He ensures that nobody is left out and proposed very reasonable arrangements. We were really in good hands with his help.... read more

There are more Interesting places to visit and things to do in Japan. Next time, please try to come to Japan in spring time so that you can enjoy cherry blossoms. Weather will be more stable. Thank you, and hope to see you again. Best regards, Hideki Mori

“ Perfect Custom Tour ”

Our extended family spent four days with Mori-san in Kanagawa. He put together an excellent itinerary combing tourist destinations in Hakone, Kamakura, Yokohama and Odawara with experiences of traditional Japanese life. Our group included ages 17-84 and had varied interests so this was no simple task. Once he got to know us better he adjusted our plans accordingly. Mori-san speaks excellent English and is very organized while still remaining flexible and easy going. He has also travelled extensively and has many interests which allows him to be an ideal host and guide. We very much enjoyed getting to know him and learning more about Japan. Arigato gozaimas Mori-San!

“ Excellent guide, high english proficiency. ”

Hideki is a friendly guide who showed us (a group of 2) around Tokyo. He guided us around to very specific places we wanted to go, and familiarized us with the subway system. He's friendly, proficient in English, and I can't recommend him enough.


Dear Pablo, Thank you very much for your review. I enjoyed the morning walk in central part of Tokyo with you. I hope you'll have more chance to encounter new and interesting things during your stay in Japan. Please take care and have fun. Thank you and good luck! Best regards, Hideki Mori
