“ Had a great day with Hiroshi! ”

We spent the day touring some of Kyoto's sites with HIroshi. He was at our hotel on time. Super nice man! He spoke of the history of the area. Really enjoyed our time with him.


Dear Jane Thank you for your compliment on Dec 29 one day tour in Kyoto. I was amazed to know that all of you were so tough walkers ! I guided all of you to the sites where you need to walk a long distance such as Fushimi- Inari Shrine , Kiyomizu-saka to San-nen saka and to Ninen saka to Maruyama park to Yasaka jinjya shrine and take a walk in Kawaramachi street to a Chinese restaurant ! Walking in the long distance is a good way to stay fit. Best regards Hiroshi Y.

“ Wonderful day ”

Hiroshi was a fantastic guide for our first visit of Kyoto. Thanks to him, we discovered a beautiful city with a great story and culture. We had a full day of visits, we were quite tired after all these km walking but Hiro seemed to be flying haha! He took many photos of us in front of the key spots, that was really nice. He is a really fun and knowledgeable person, perfect to get a great taste of Kyoto.


Dear Karine I am grateful to you for your great reviews on Dec 30 in 2018 one day tour in Kyoto. you visited many sites in a day ,such as Golden Pavilion temple ,which was brilliantly shinning in the morning sun, Ryoanji temple, Nin-naji temple and take a walking in the bamboo forest and visited at Sanjyu-sangendo temple,where you must be feeling walking in the forest of buddha. I felt happy while guiding both of you to these historically important sites because both of you showed me sense of wonder and sense of respect for Japanese culture. Best regards Hiroshi Y.

“ One -day tour in Kyoto with the excellent guide, Hiro ”

We visited Fushimi Inari Tisha Shrine, Sanjusangendo Temple, Nijo Castle, and Gion district (Miko-san town). Hiro is very knowledgeable about Japanese history and traditional culture and has a sense of humor! Also, he was very flexible to accomodate my requests all the time. Thank you, Hiro, you made my day. I highly recommend a tour with an excelletn guide, Hiro.


Dear Yuko I am very grateful to you for your great reviews on Dec 21 tour in Kyoto. You did give me several excellent questions at each site such as at Fushimi-Inari Shrine,Sanjyu-sangendo temple,Nijyojyo castle, Golden pavilion temple and Gion district. I am still wondering whether or not to convey the legend and history of each great site to you. Best regards Hiroshi Y.

It was nice experience touring Kyoto with Hiroshi-san. Even though we were late, he waited patiently and showed us around t place.


Dear Sangeetha Thank you for your compliment on Nov 25 tour in Kyoto. I wish we had at least one hour more time ! If so, I could show you walking in the Gion district and shine more brightly Golden Pavilion temple in the evening. Best regards Hiroshi Y.
