“ Great time exploring Kyoto and Nara ”

My husband and I enjoyed the two days we spent with "Hiro." Hiro was very efficient, and showed us so many amazing places all around Kyoto and Nara. We covered more ground than we did with any other guide on our trip. We loved that Hiro carried his DSLR camera around - he took pictures for us and has promised to email them. For the price, you cannot go wrong with booking Hiro. He was very enjoyable to be around and knowledgeable about the sites he showed us. Thanks Hiro!!!!

“ 4 Days in Kyoto ”

My husband and I had a wonderful time with Hiroshi in Kyoto. He was extremely patient with my endless shopping and very accommodating when we kept changing the planned itinerary. He is very knowledgeable about Kyoto and its history. In response to our love of art, he took us to museums, craft centres and the house of a multi talented artist Kawai Kanjiro. We went to Nijyo castle, the Hihashiyama district, Gion, Philosopher's Walk, Zen gardens at Daitokji temple, Arashiyama and many more. Hiro was very responsive to our needs and also accommodated our dietary requirements. He has a great sense of humour and we recommend him as guide in Kyoto.

Dear FAITH Thank you for your compliment on May 7 tour in Osaka. I wish there had been more time on that day. If you had at least one hour more, all of your family members also had enjoyed visiting at Osaka Sky Garden in Umeda Sky Building. Best regards Hiroshi Y.

“ Hiroshi showed us many of the major highlights of Kyoto in two days. ”

Hiroshi is a very energetic guide who took us to many places in two short days. We asked for some locations that were not on the typical tour list and he was happy to accomodate us. He has a nice sense of humor and seems to really enjoy guiding people around his city. We were tired but happy at the end of the day.

Hiroshi:

Dear Margaret I say thank you for your great reviews for Ap 29 and 30,two days tour in Kyoto. All of you visited a wide variety of sites such as Sanjyu- sangendo temple, Higashi-Honganji temple, Nijyojyo castle ,Arashiyama bamboo forest and Fushimi-Inari Shrine,where you climbed up to the middle of the Mt.Inari ! and lastly visited at Gion district. I hope that all of you had pleasant trip in Kyoto. Best regards May 16 Hiroshi Y.
