“ Excellent tour of Kyoto with Hiroshi ”

Hiroshi is very knowledgeable and informative. He knows the transit system well, which helps to save a lot of time on moving from one itinerary to another. He took us to visit Sanjyu-sangendo temple, Fushimi-Inari Shrine, and bamboo forest. He even gave my husband matcha chocolate crackers, which all of us really enjoy. We would recommend Hiroshi to anyone who look for a tour guide while visiting Kyoto.


Dear Tammy Thank you Tammy for your great compliment on Nov 29 one day tour in Kyoto. I think that all of you really enjoyed visiting at must-see sites such as Fushimi-Inari Shrine,Sanjyu -sangendo,where as many as 1001 buddha statues are enshrined and at Arashoyama district where you looked at nice overlook view of Mt.Arashiyama.

“ The most incredible guide!!!! ”

We had the most incredible day with Hiroshi! He went above and beyond to meet us at our hotel and show us all of the most important sights in Kyoto! We learned so much during our time but we also had fun! Hiroshi is incredibly knowledgeable and always provided entertaining stories as well. He brought us to a wonderful place to eat lunch and really made our day the most incredible day!!! We were truly sad to have one day end and truly believe 2 or 3 days would be best. We will be recommending Hiro to anyone looking for the best guide you can find. Kyoto is beautiful and if you want to see as much as you can in one or two days, you should hire Hiro as your guide. Btw we are a family of 6 with 4 children and Hiro was so good with them! He asked questions and let all of us guess. It wa... read more

“ Competent and vigorous ”

He is an excellent guide. His English is very good. We enjoyed a lot the day with him.


Dear LUTI I say thank you LUTI for your great reviews on one day tour in Kyoto. I hope that both of you enjoyed looking over beautiful autumn leaves in the garden of Tofukuji temple and Katsuragawa river side walking in Arashiyama district and you had a kind of mysterious feeling while you were walking through countless trii-gates in Fushimi-Inari Shrine. Best regards Dec 4 Hiroshi Y.

“ Great experience! ”

This is the best way to get the most out of a trip to Kyoto! Hiro is an absolute pleasure to be around at the same time he gives you plenty of space (stands apart at train stations etc.) so that my husband and I still had privacy. He got us to locations quickly (we would have wasted lots of time figuring out all the connections) and most importantly had fascinating information that made the temples and shrines we visited come to life.


Dear Sarah I am grateful to you for your great reviews on one day tour in Kyoto. You visited so many must-see sites in Kyoto within a day such as Nanzenji temple, Golden Pavilion temple, Fushimi-Inari shrine and after eating your lunch, you also visited at Kiyomizudera ( not enter) and stepping down at San-nen saka and Ninen saka slope and lastly walked through in Isibei street to Higashiyama street. I hope that both of you had a pleasant day and reminding of Kyoto when you return to your country. Best regards Dec 4 Hiroshi Y.
