“ Half day tour with Hiroshi ”

Tour layout and plan: We did our own planning and Hiroshi was very cooperative in the process. English understanding and speaking:3.5/5 Knowledge of culture and history: 4/5 Customer service: I could not spk with Hiroshi because of the useless policy of Tripplelight. Unlike other guide services, you can only contact them thru email, which increases the time to deliver and receive messages very long. Overall rating:5/5

“ Wonderful day trip at Kyoto ”

Hiroshi san was at the hotel well before the agreed time. We started by 7 am and he stayed well past the agreed time. In the interim his knowledge of the city and history kept us enthralled. Also the connection between India's and Japan's culture was detailed and we were happy to know he knew afair bit about India too!!! Thank you Mr.Hiroshi san for a wonderful trip and the wonderful souvenir that followed the trip...very thoughtful... Dilip


Dear Dilip I am grateful to you for your heartfelt reviews on one day long trip in Kyoto. you take a walking in bamboo forest in early morning around 7:40 am, that's a good choice because all of you including me really enjoyed walking in the quiet and calm bamboo path to the lotus pond area,where always crowded with so many tourists. I was so pleased to see that you were excited to watch on as many as 1001 buddha statues in Sanjyu-sangendo temple. Best regards Oct 9 Hiroshi Y.

“ Kyoto day tour ”

Hiroshi is an excellent guide who can cater for groups of all ages. He is flexible to the group needs and provides invaluable experiences on all parts of the city that would otherwise take tourists significant more time to achieve. I highly recommend Hiroshi for his knowledge, friendliness and insights to tourists. Fantastic and well worth it. Regards Kylie

“ Fun and Interesting ”

My husband and I spent our first day in Kyoto visiting 4 spectacular sites as well as a visit to the Gion district with Hiroshi. We would not have been able to navigate through the city so efficiently without his expertise. Hiroshi was professional yet fun and engaging. Thank you for a great day Hiroshi and your kind gift of chocolate yatshashi.


Dear Linda Thank you for your great reviews on Sep 21 tour in Kyoto. I showed you four must -see sites and a tea ceremony experience house and two Geisya towns in Gion. I enjoyed guiding such a knowledgeable person concerning Japanese culture and history like you both in Kyoto or called the capital of Japan for 1000years ! Best regards Sep 28 Hiroshi (hiro) Y.
