“ History relived ”

Mr. Hiro is very accommodating. He has a unique way of giving information like trivia questions. He has good knowledge of the places of interests. He has a great sense of humor too. He really took good care if me and my son. He even made sure we were in the right platform going back to osaka. A highlight of our trip is our visit to Gion. The Geisha villages were amazing and Mr. Hiro made sure we learned about their lives. We were fortunate to see several of them being fetched.

“ Excellent Guide ”

We had a one day tour organised by Hiroshi-san, we were very pleased that we were able to go to see all the places we wanted to see. Hiroshi-San is very funny and he made the tour a lot of fun and educational at the same time (make sure you prepare for a quiz 😀). I would highly recommend and will definitely take a tour with him again when we’re back in Japan!

“ Hiroshi is wonderful guide for Kyoto ”

Hiroshi is a wonderful guide and a genuinely friendly person. We felt privileged at the end of our day to have met him. As for the Kyoto full day tour, he goes out of his way and really works very hard to allow his clients to see the sights and surrounds in detail, always happy to answer questions and allows time for numerous photographs. He is very knowledgeable and we learnt alot whilst on the tour and developed a true appreciation of Japanese history, culture and traditions. His a very patient gentleman so we never felt rushed. We had very specific dietary requirements and he made sure that we were shown several restaurants prior to us selecting one....his food recommendation was great incidently! Overall, we had a brilliant day out and I would highly recommend this gentleman as your gu... read more

“ Funny and informative ”

We planned that our second day in Kyoto would be about going to the different historical places the cultural capital is known for. Hence, we booked a tour guide who could speak English for the experience. However, we got more than what we bargained for - our guide Mr. Hiro made us laugh, let us know which tea houses were expensive without needing to check the Web, and see geishas and maikos hailing taxis for their nightly appointments. He is a fast walker however so please ready to keep in pace with him. When we come back to Japan, we will surely keep in touch with him again, not just a guide anymore but as a friend, too.


Dear Maria I am very grateful to you for your great reviews of June 3 one day tour in Kyoto. I felt so happy when I found that all of your family looked really enjoying the tour in Kyoto, which is the most charming city in Japan. Kyoto attracts not only Japanese people but also foreingn tourists as well. Sorry,I try to be a slow walking tour guide in next time guiding. Best regards June 9 Hiroshi Y.

“ A Man of Patience and Humour ”

Mr Hiro showed us that strength doesnt just come in physical aspect but also in spirit. He was patient and kind and even had time to make our kids feel special. A person with passion to explain history and update you with latest current events. We learned a lot from him today !! We are lucky to have chosen him as our guide.


Dear Helen I say, thank you for your great reviews on May 24 tour in Kyoto. One of the hapiest moments as a tour guide was all of your family look like really enjoy touring in several histolically important sites such as Fushimi-Inari Taisya, Golden Pavilion temple, Kiyomizudera temple and encounter with a Maiko-san walking in Gion district. Best regards May 29 Hiroshi Y.
