“ Hiroshi is a TOP tour guide! ”

Hiroshi is GREAT! He responded to all my questions in the months prior to our arrival. He met us at our ship on time, took us to all the places we read about. Did an excellent job of pointing out interesting things as we walked the streets of Tokyo.. we saw the normal tourist places as well and many places that gave us a feeling of the real past and present Tokyo. And when I accidentally left my iPad in a store, he immediately went back and got it! If you need a guide in Tokyo, go with Hiroshi.. you will be extremely pleased!

Hiroshi:

“ A Great Day in Tokyo!!! ”

Hiroshi is a very knowledgeable, a great communicator, easy to get along with and very accommodating to my wife & I. My wife has foot problems & it was easy to adjust our tour for her. We learned so much about Tokyo & Japan from Hiroshi. By the end of the day we felt we also had met a great man as well as a new friend, & if we get a chance to return we shall certainly ask for Hiroshi.

Hiroshi:

Dear Charles Thank you very much for the good evaluation about the tour. It was a great pleasure being with you and your wife. I hope you will have a great time with cruise and arrive home safely. It was my pleasure to be your guide and wish to have another chance to see you. Best regards Hiroshi

“ Wonderful guide for Kamakura shrines, temples, and gardens. ”

Excellent English. Patient and great listener and planner. Flexible for changes. Arranged just what we wanted. Low key cultural experience in Kamakura. Tea in Bamboo garden and veggie lunch served by monks were unique. He navigates public transport flawlessly.

Hiroshi:

Dear Sue and John Thank you very much for giving me a very nice review. The tour with you was very nice one. I always try to be very flexible to meet customers' wish. It is my style as a guide. I wish to be your guide if you come back to Japan again. Have a wonderful time. Best regards

“ Excellent guide ”

Hiroshi was an excellent guide. We took tours of the history museum of Edo/Tokyo and we were very impressed with his depth of knowledge and his insight. We also visited some local temples and the famous fish market. He continued his high level of teaching and have very useful insights into the culture as well. His English was also exemplary.

Hiroshi:

Dear Brannon Thank you very much for writing an excellent review of my tour. It was very enjoyable tour with your family. Unfortunately Sumo practice was not able to see but taking pictures with Sumo wrestler will be unforgettable memory for James. I would like to express my gratitude for listening my talk very sincerely during the tour. I hope memory of this tour will be shared with your family and friends and more people may come to Japan to become fan of Japan. Thank you very much to choose me as your guide and have a good flight back to your home. Best regards Hiroshi
