“ Great Sightseeing Experience in Osaka, Kyoto, and Kobe ”

Hiro provided our group with a wonderful sightseeing experience in Japan. We had opportunities to experience Japanese culture by visiting areas of historical importance, learning more about Japanese customs, and tasting a variety of delicious Japanese cuisine. Hiro was friendly and very accommodating and flexible with our schedule during the trip. Even though parts of our schedule changed during the trip to cater to the group's needs, the tour was seamless. We would consider re-booking with Hiro if we are visiting the area again.

Hiroyuki:

It made me happy that you all had full of curiosity, enjoyed variety of Japanese foods and sight-seeing spots. I will be glad to guide you next time.

“ City tours: Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka ”

We had 5 days of very inclusive tours in three different cities. We were fortunate to see many examples of Japan's history and culture. Hiroyuki was a very passionate guide and I think enjoyed sharing his knowledge to our group.

Hiroyuki:

I had a lot of great experience with you. I was glad that you enjoyed some Japanese foods and loved Kiyosumi garden. Hearing your impressions and seeing the pictures of your home town, I thought I want to show you the other sightseeing spots rich in natural beauty such as Hakone.
