“ A wonderful day with Hiroshi. ”

We had a wonderful day with Hiroshi. He gave us lots of information as we visited several shrines and temples - the sort of information you don't necessarily find in guide books. Hiroshi has a good sense of humour and is very easy going. We are happy to recommend him as a guide.

“ Excellent tour ”

The tour was absolutely wonderful. Hiroshi is a very knowledgeable man. Throughout our tour he educated us and made sure we enjoyed our time at the same time. Hiroshi is very easy to talk to and very flexible with time. We advised him that we had a reservation for dinner that we could not reschedule or change and he ensured that we got there early and even dropped us off. Enjoyed our tour. Highly recommend if you're considering to book a tour, book one with Hiroshi.

“ Great way to see Kyoto with a helpful guide! ”

We spent two lovely days in Kyoto with Hiro-san, he was a very helpful and considerate guide! Definitely bring your walking shoes as we packed in a lot of sites. Hiro-san was extremely helpful when our camera got lost on the train (before arriving in Kyoto, and we did get it back thank goodness!), communicating with the train stations, JR offices, etc., and he was very kind to let us use his camera in the meantime (sending the pictures via Dropbox). He was also very flexible around our dietary restrictions by finding places with vegetarian food. His background information around the sites definitely augmented the experience, as we wouldn't have known any of the history without him, his background as a school teacher shows! Thank you Hiro-san for your hospitality and a wonderful tour of Kyoto! ありがとうございました!

“ A rich experience! ”

He is honest person and provides good introduction to the places that we visited. In addition, he lead us to nice food during our way. He knows where to take good photos and offered his guidance on how to go around Osaka on my own. My family are grateful for his time with us. Thanks Ricky Singapore

“ Hiroshi is a huge blessing! The Best Tour Guide... ”

From the start I knew I had to get Hiroshi as our tour guide. He was in touch with me the whole time and was very detailed with our itinerary, even our meeting point up to what he would be wearing. My Mom and I were very happy to have the tour with him. Not only was it very educational but so much fun as well (I particularly loved how he'd ask questions and even gave me a prize when I won in the end). The whole tour was very enjoyable for us and we got to learn a lot. He even went the extra mile by advising us about our itineraries for our next few days in Kyoto and Osaka! Most importantly, we gained a friend in Hiroshi which ultimately make us fall in love even more with Japan and its people. ARIGATOU GOZAIMASU and see you next time, Hiroshi!

“ An excellent tour with a fabulous guide ”

We thoroughly enjoyed our highlights of Kyoto tour with Hiroshi. I wanted to experience Kyoto with an authentic, local guide rather than having my head down in my guidebook, and I am so glad we did. Hiroshi is a gentleman; knowledgeable, entertaining and funny. We struck lucky. The tour was a highlight of our trip to Japan - not only with the wonderful places we saw on the tour, but the character and experience of spending time with Hiroshi. I thoroughly recommend Hiroshi as a guide - you will not be disappointed. Hiroshi-san - it was a pleasure to meet you, and thank you for making the tour so great.
