Feel free to personalize this offer with Hideo.
I would like to take you to Kenrokuen, Kanazawa Castle Park, Higashichaya district, Samurai residence district, and Omi Market.
Kenrokuen is a strolling-style landscape garden, one of the three most famous scenic gardens in Japan. The majestic pine tree is one of the best-known trees in the garden. In winter gardeners begin setting up "yukizuri" to prevent the branches from breaking down by heavy snow.
Kanazawa Castle was built more than 400 years ago. Many buildings were burned down in repeated fires. However some gates still remain. Other buidings were restored to their original form. Another attraction of the park is its great variety of stone walls.
Higashi Chaya District is the popular tourist area beside the Asanogawa River. The street features rows of old geisha houses that give us a feel for what Kanazawa was like in bygone days. The production of gold leaf accounts for 98 percent of the Japan total and you can see the process of making gold leaf and buy its products.
Samurai residence district is Nagamachi that brings to mind the streetscape of samural days. Thare are samurai residences and museums that evoke the lifestyle of the feudal period, so if you are interested in samurais and their culture, you should definitely go and have a look.
We would like to have freshfish, seafood and sashimi for lunch at Omi-cho Market.

Hi Sandy I'm very happy to receive your review. Matsumoto Castle had a little steep stairs but you easily walked upstaires. In Matsumoto City Museum, I'm sure, you could enjoy the works of Yayoi Kusama, the most famous modern artist in Japan. I wish all of you happiness and I hope to see you again. Thank you, Sandy.
Well-organized, good group control. Very knowledgeable about Japan, and excellent skills at relating it. Sometimes difficulty with communication due to soft and relatively high-pitched voice! Would use again

Hideo is very organized and knowledgeable! He met us in the lobby of our hotel and we spent about 5.5 hours together. He knew quite a bit about the history of Kyoto and Japan in general and answered all of our questions. It was very hot, but we managed quite nicely as there were enough times we were in a cooler areas. His English, while not like a native speaker's, was perfectly fine. We had no trouble understanding or communicating. We did provide lunch, but it was our pleasure to have Hideo as our guest. He made the day very enjoyable!
