What to Expect

In the East Garden, you can feel the great achievement of the Tokugawa Shogunate and appreciate seasonal flowers throughout the year. Through Marunouchi to Ginza you see various modern aspects such as fashion and business. In Hama Rikyu, you feel relaxed in the strolling-style garden and also savor Japanese tea on tatami matted flooring inside a tea room. Going on board a ship in the Sumida river must be your good memory. In Asakusa, besides Tokyo's oldest temple named Sensoji, you will be amazed at bustling atmosphere.

“ Very informative ”

Hiroyuki was very flexible and accommodating as we only had a few hours to spend in Tokio. Very nice experience! Wish we had more time to learn more about Japan and its culture.

Hiroyuki:

Dear Carolina Thank you for your good appraisal on my job. I am very pleased that you spent the precious time on experiencing Japanese culture and talking about many things to each other. I am waiting for you to come to Japan again and at that time I would like to accompany you as a guide. Japan is a wonderful country to travel in and it have many things to see. Hiroyuki

“ Very nice man, but English not so good ”

Hiro is extremely nice but we are very sorry we used him for our first trip to Japan. It is not fair to have a guide that cannot tell you stories about the places or anything other than the paragraph you read on triplelights I about the sight you are visiting. Hiro really should not be an English tour guide, it was not fair to us, we spent 4 days just following him around from place to place in silence because communication was so poor. We wanted information about the sites we were seeing, but was literally impossible to get an answer from him, it was like pulling teeth, but the tooth didn’t want to come out. Hiro, I hope you are reading this, because we paid triplelight a lot of money and we did not get an English speaking guide and the sad thing is, although you are respectful and... read more

Hiroyuki:

Dear Ronald Thank you for hiring me as a guide. I am seriously taking your comment on my job. Hiroyuki

“ A half day around Nikko ”

Hiroyuki is a very knowledgeable man. Teaching me about the history of Japan and the Edo period. I learned a lot from him. It was during Golden Week in Nikko so it was very crowded so we had to change up the itinerary to a walking distance instead of taking a bus. So the tour was a little shorter and went to less places but what can you do? Still had fun and learned a lot. Thank you for the tour.

Hiroyuki:

Dear Eric We walked a lot and despite the 5 hour tour saw and did many things. I am very pleased to hear your good comment about the tour. Japan is a wonderful country to travel in, in which there are many things to see and experience. You are very young, so I hope you will visit Japan again and again and could accompany you as a guide. I wish your happiness and prosperity. Thank you very much! Hiroyuki

We had a day with fun together with Mr Hiroyuki. Lots of walking but lots of good laugh with him. He is very knowledgeable and very kind. I will recommend Mr Hiroyuki to be a day tour guide in Tokyo. -Ondoy Family-

Hiroyuki:

Dear Ruth I am very pleased to receive your praise for my job and enjoyed having fun conversation with you on the tour. 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. Thank you very much! Hiroyuki

“ 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
