“ Hero! The name says it all! ”

Hero is very knowledgeable, and more importantly a pleasure to spend time with while touring Kyoto and Osaka. He is quite the foodie and will highlight the better restaurants in the area by comparing 3 different foodie sites to choose the right one for you! We ate and drank our way around, also touring the many beautiful sites of the area, and all the while Hero took fabulous photos for us. This way we could soak it all in without having to look through a lens. So appreciated 🥰.

“ Hero was awesome ! ”

Hero was a great tour guide in Kyoto. He communicated well with me during the planning process prior to the trip. We were able to organize an itinerary that was comfortable and entertaining for the group of 11 adults. Hero went out of his way to many times throughout the day, taking pics, organizing Kimono rentals, and communicating with transport. I would highly recommend booking Hero for your next trip to Kyoto!

Hero:

Thank you very much for writing sweet reference. It was the best season for cherry blossom!All of your family loved to be a model for my photos. So I could enjoy shooting whole day!! About 400 shoots!? I was happy we could surprise your family by wearing Kimono. And I also enjoyed taking photos for all of you!!I wish I could meet up with you someday in USA. Say hi to all of your family! Hug!! ;)

“ Enthusiastic and knowledgeable ”

Our first time in Kyoto and very glad we saw it through Hero's experienced and knowledgeable local eyes and sensibilities. We went through Nishiki market, crossing Kamo river on Shijo bridge to Gion, visited several temples, he took on the role as our photographer making sure to captured images of us at places we visited. Helped us make a booking at a tempura restaurant we wanted to get into during the very busy sakura season in Kyoto. Friendly, approachable, flexible - we have already decided to come back to Kyoto to see more of it, hopefully with Hero again soon.

Hero:

Thank you for your sweet reference. Seng and Edward were polite guests. They respect Japanese foods culture, life style, custom and local people. So I was also happy to introduce it to them through Kyoto city. In addition, they have multicultural background. I wish I could travel like you. I hope we can meet up again near future. See you until then! ;)

“ Tours around Osaka and Kyoto ”

As a family of thirteen with 5 children under 12, we were not an easy task to manage so Hero was exceptionally helpful in escorting us around Kyoto and Osaka. Although he planned a detailed itinerary before our arrival, he was extremely accommodating to everyone's needs and allowed us to tour these cities at our own pace - this definitely made things way less stressful. One downside in touring with such a large group with a stroller was the public transportation on the bus (the subway in Oasaka was much easier!), but Hero was very accommodating and adjusted the itinerary to fit out needs. Also, it can be quite hard herding our group together to share information, but Hero was very knowledgeable at answering any questions we may have had. All-in-all, we were not an easy group, but ... read more

Hero:

Thank you very much for hiring me!Well,,,I played rugby as you played. So this 2 days was kind of rugby team. I tried to be a nice piece of your big group. But I am sure I could not guide several sightseeing spot without your family support. Mahalo!!!In addition, kids were crazy but always made me happy. They were not complicated but purely simple nice kids!!I could enjoy spending time with them. Kyoto and Osaka people does not use Hawaiian time or Okinawan time. But I can switch it. So Hawaiian thinking way reminded me my Okinawa life!I hope to see you in Hawaii or US mainland!All the best for your amazing family!!
