“ Hiroyuki was great! ”

Hiroyuki was great! We booked him only a 1 day prior and it was a very easy process. He met us at the hotel and built a custom itinerary. When we wanted to do things of the itinerary it was not a problem. He would take pictures for us of us which is always nice. He had a lot of great knowledge that made the tour very insightful. At the end of the day we wanted to stay in Asakusa so he departed from there rather than take us back to the hotel. We would definitely do another tour with Hiroyuki!

Hiroyuki:

Dear Amy I am very pleased to receive your praise for my job. All of you are nice, so I enjoyed conversation with you. Japan is a wonderful country to travel in. I hope you will visit Japan again and again and I could accompany you as a guide. I wish your happiness and much success. Thank you very much! Hiroyuki

“ Wehat a wonderful day! ”

HIroyuki gave us a wonderful tour of Kamakura. We have traveled to more than 75 countries and we have been on over 55 cruises to many lovely places. Hiroyuki was able to give us a sense of the history and majesty of Kamakura along with a great overview of Japan's history, beauty and culture. He made us feel welcome in his beautiful homeland. This day will stand out among our most cherished memories. Thank you so very muich for this fantastic guided tour! We feel very blessed!

Hiroyuki:

Hello. Michael. I am very pleased to receive your praise for my job and my country. I have also good memories walking with you in Kamakura while viewing cherry blossoms in full bloom. Japan is a wonderful country to travel in. I hope you will come to Japan again and I could see you. I wish your happiness and good health. Thank you very much! Hiroyuki

“ Fantastic trip to Japan ”

My husband and I were in Japan for the first time, and we think the trip was a success largely due to Hiroyuki.We would like to express our great appreciation to our guide for the wonderful trip. All the four days Hiroyuki spent with us were planned by the minute. Hiroyuki showed us wonderful Tokyo, amazing Nikko and beautiful Kamaguru. Hiroyuki from the first day taught us how to use public transport, metro, trains and navigate in the city. All the recommendations that Hiroyuki gave us were extremely helpful: the choice of hotel, tour plans, local restaurants and shops.

Hiroyuki:

Dear Natalia I am very pleased to receive your praise for my job. I am so sorry that on the tours of both Nikko and Kamakura the weathers were bad due to the thick fog and heavy rain. Since I've heard you enjoyed trip regardless of such weathers, I feel relieved a little. Japan is a wonderful country to travel in, in that you see many things, eat really Japanese dishes, drink sake and experience culture and traditon. I hope you will visit Japan someday in the near future and I will be able to accompany you as a guide. I wish your happiness and much success. Thank you very much! Hiroyuki
