“ Visiting Kyoto ”

I thoroughly enjoyed our time with Hiro, he was very accommodating to our needs. We had to switch up our itinerary and he was happy to go with the changes. He is a true gentleman and nothing was no much trouble for him. I would highly recommend Hiro as a tour guide.

“ Friendly, well informed and attention to detail ”

We spent a full day with Hiroshi going to the major sites across Kyoto. He was very efficient in sending information on where to meet etc. We used public transit and he always used the most efficient connections. Hiroshi had interesting stories and facts besides usual history for each place that we visited. He very sweetly offered to take pictures of the family at every spot, and patiently answered all our questions. It was a very hot and humid day and we unfortunately chose to end our tour a little early, but it was amazing to see the level of energy and enthusiasm that Hiroshi-San had all through. We would definitely recommend him to all who want enjoy Kyoto with a local feel. Thank you for a lovely day.

“ Whirlwind tour of Kyoto ”

Hiroshi accommodated our requests for particular destinations and we covered an impressive amount of ground in a single day. His English vocabulary is expansive and he had a lot of information about the sites and areas we visited. He did miss a few questions, and his walking pace was sometimes a challenge to keep up with, but overall was attentive and responsive. He also took photos for us and emailed them to us afterward, which was a nice touch. Overall a great value and a nice day exploring the city.

“ Kyoto in less than two days ”

My family of six had many plans for sight seeing in Kyoto. The tough part was how to see all the sights in the limited amount of time. Hiro was the best. He took the time we had in Kyoto and personalized two trips (over two days) for us that worked with our time and took into consideration that we had JR passes. First day: Bamboo Forest, Monkey Park, and the Fushimi shrine. Hiro warned us that that would be a lot of walking. But he designed an itinerary for us. Nijo-jo Castle and the Golden Temple were seen the second day, and he dropped us off at the JR station as we requested. Hiro is full of energy, and he is very personable!
