Feel free to personalize this offer with Hiroshi.
To enjoy Tokyo, visiting famous places like Asakusa and Tsukiji is one of the ways. However another way is to explore museums in Tokyo to deepen your appreciation about Japan. There are many museums in Tokyo and museums I listed are not all. Based upon your interest, I can make a plan for you. For example, visiting Edo-Tokyo museum first and visit Asakusa and Imperial palace afterward . Because, after you see miniature of old Tokyo and Edo castle which is current Imperial palace in the museum, visiting those places gives you different view of interest. If you wish to enjoy shopping and Japanese art and culture, visiting Nezu museum first to feel atmosphere of silence which is one of characteristics of Japanese culture. Then you enjoy shopping at Omote-sando and at the end visit Ohta museum to see Ukiyoe which is old wood block printing . This is a combination of old Japanese culture and contemporary Japanese lifestyle. If you like to get nice view of Tokyo along with enjoying art, visiting Mori museum and National Art center is the ideal one. If your interest is knowing Japanese progress from ancient to current, visiting Ueno is the best selection.
Above list is one of the example. by knowing your interest, I can tailor a plan for you. Therefore, please let me know what you like to see and learn.

I found Hiro to be very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend him as a guide.
Dear Natalie Thank you very much for your quick review. Have a nice cruise back to Sydney Best regards
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.
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
Although I had an initial problem meeting Hiroshi, he was worth the problem. Hiroshi was extremely knowledgeable about Yokohama in general and Japanese society and culture in particular. He was most willing to adapt the schedule to accommodate my requests about places to visit. I really enjoyed our lunch in Chinatown
Dear Judith Thank you very much for your comment. I enjoyed a tour with you in Yokohama. I am very happy to find you satisfied my service. I hope I can be your guide again. Thank you and Best regards
What an incredible day we had with Hiroshi. From the moment we met him at our hotel we felt very relaxed and comfortable with him. He took us to all the places we wanted to go and he also took us to some special shops that we would never have known to visit. His knowledge of everything is amazing and it was such a wonderful day. Wish we could hire him everyday to walk around with us 😀. Hiroshi is the best tour guide if you have small children as he’s very patient and very friendly. He has been so helpful in planning our whole trip to Japan and I will be telling all my family and friends to book a tour with him!!! 5 star experience with Hiroshi. Thankyou so much.

We spent three fantastic days with Hiroshi exploring contemporary and traditional Japanese culture and visiting Hakone. He was a well informed, interesting and engaging guide who was happy to answer all our random questions about life in Japan. Hiroshi was very organised and made sure that we saw lots of different places in the days we spent with him. He was also invaluable in the run up to the trip, giving us advice on money, travel arrangements and places to visit. I would wholeheartedly recommend Hiroshi as a guide.
Dear Sarah Thank you very much for your great review. I am very happy to find you spent good time with me. It was my first time to have a kid as my customer. The happiest thing for me was to see Pat's smile in any places. I hope my guiding supported him to know about Japan as well as you. Please make another chance to visit Japan and to meet again.
