“ Disappointing Nara private tour ”

Hiroshi is a nice man. His English language skills are "fair". Unfortunately, his understanding of what it means to serve as a professional guidefor ADULT English speaking tourists is disappointing. Hiroshi told me that he used to be an elementary (student age 7-12) school teacher. The information that he imparted to me and to my wife during our tour was suitable for elementary school students. His ability to answer questions at a more sophisticated level was not in evidence.

“ Good 2 days ”

We had 2 days with Hiro who is an efficient guide and very knowledgeable in Japanese history. It is easy to tell he is an ex-teacher due to the patience he had with our 2 sons. Once we had all got to know each other we had a good two days, Nara being our favourite.

“ If you plan a trip to Japan, you need to book a tour with Hiroshi! ”

It was only a few short months ago that my family and I started planning a trip to Japan. Mind you we do not speak Japanese, had no experience travelling overseas, and would have two children in tow! I decided that it would be best to book a professional guide for at least one of our 10 days, and I cannot put in to words how grateful I am to have found Hiroshi! For our first day we booked a guided trip to Nara. Learning about this ancient capital through Hiroshi's questions was both enjoyable and enlightening. Hiroshi is not only a very knowledgeable man, but he is quite fun to listen to and his many years as a school teacher is apparent from the way he engaged our children. It would have been impossible to have had anything close to the same experience on our own. Hiroshi is also an expert navigator and was very helpful when it came to buying train tickets or figuring out when a taxi would save enough time to warrant the cost. He is also quick on his feet and knows how to get around the crowds. From planning the itinerary, to taking photos of the family, or finding my picky eater a great spot for lunch, to buying the girls crackers to feed the deer, Hiroshi was so much more than just a tour guide! Having him there to not just be our interpreter but to truly educate us about Japanese history and culture was an absolute gift. Arigatou gozaimasu Hiro!

“ Tour of Nara Park ”

Hiroshi-san is a knowledgeable man who taught us a lot during our trip to Nara. He played games with us in a fun quiz form which helped us to understand the culture better. He walked a lot with us and answers all our questions, and brought us to key sites of the area so that we wouldn't miss is as it was our first trip to Nara. At the end of the day, he helped me and my friends to reserve tickets for our train to Tokyo. We had a fun and amazing time with Hiroshi-san.

“ Educational & accommodating ”

Hiroshi was our guide in Kyoto & Nara for 2 days. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. He even took photos of us with his own camera free of charge. He made the tour fun & interesting by asking us questions in a quiz format throughout the tour and purchased chocolates for the winner of the quiz. He adapted the tour based on our interests and went out of his way to find things we were interested in or wanted to do. I highly recommend Hiroshi as a guide for his personal service and excellent attention to his clients.

“ Excellent and friendly guide! ”

We hired Hiroshi for one day in Kyoto and another day in Kyoto and Nara in our honeymoon. He is a great and friendly person. Always smiling and wanting to please you. We recomend 100% hiring Hiroshi for your days in Kyoto!

Hiroshi is a great tour guide with a great sense of humor. We had enjoyed our trip to Nara very much. He knows a great deal about the Nara and shared with us many interesting aspect of Nara. Highly recommended!", "feedback": "Great service. Keep it up!

As stated in my review right after our tour, we recommend Hiroshi to you. We took full day tours of both Nara and Kyoto with him. He was enthusiastic and the schoolteacher in him couldn't help but come out. Every now and then, there would be a pop quiz and if you got the answer correct, you would get an enthusiastic "Bingo!" Hiroshi was also very generous with his time, taking us to spots not included on our itinerary. Finally, his tours are a great bargain, perhaps the best deal in Kyoto and Nara!
