“ Hakone a Wonderful World with Hiroshi ”

We had a wonderful day. Great view of Mt Fuji, visits to Japanese Art Museum & Hakone Open Air Museum were both unexpected highlights. Lovely sightseeing on bus, ropeway, cable car & trains. Hiroshi was a kind & delightful guide who responded excellently to our physical needs. Hiroshi's knowledge of the Hakone area & Japan was excellent as was his command of English language. We would highly recommend Hiroshi as a guide for this tour based on our experience. Aragato, Hiroshi.

“ Excellent Guide! ”

Hiro was the best guide we've had and was one of the highlights of our trip to Tokyo. We had Hiro booked for only one day and wanted to see as much as we could. Hiro's english is great, and he was very prompt responding to emails and helped set up an itinerary tailored to our interests. In one day he took us to multiple temples and museums. He was prompt and prepared--he even carried some reference material with him to show us as we learned about the history of Japan. Hiro is funny and energetic--we could barely keep up! Excellent experience. Thank you Hiro!

Hiroshi:

Dear Reed Thank you very much to evaluate me with such great words. I think you returned to your home safely. I am sure you enjoyed your tour in Japan very much. And I am happy by knowing you satify my guiding. You and your girlfriend are very nice and if you have a chance to come to Japan again, I wish to be your guide again. I hope you will have a lots of success and prosperity. Sincerely yours Hiroshi

“ Outstanding experience, more then we expected ”

Hiroshi was our guide for several days in Tokyo and Kamakura. His guidance and companionship exceeded all our expectations. In addition to a deep knowledge of Japan, he also has an excellent English, which made communication enjoyable. While learning history of Japan, customs and traditions, we also laughed comparing our western tradition with Japanese, and greatly enjoyed his company. He took us to eat to an excellent Japanese restaurants and showed different kinds of local food. After we left Tokyo to continue our itinerary to other cities, he kept checking on how we are doing and texted which trains we should take, places we should visit, etc. We highly recommend Hiroshi to anyone who wants a fun, educational and stress-free experience!

Hiroshi:

Dear Lana Thank you very much for your great comment. While you are in Japan, no matter where you aree, you are my guest. It means it is my role to make sure you travel smoothly. As long as you have plesure, I am very happy. Please enjoy rest of days in Japan and if there is anything I can do to make your tour more enjoyable one, please do not hesitate to contact me.

“ First time visit to Tokyo ”

Hiro is an excellent tour guide and we had a fabulous day taking in the history and culture of Japan. Hiro was very informative and he has a great sense of humour. His English is excellent. Hiro collected us from our hotel and navigated the complex subway system easily. We visited the Edo Museum, Imperial Palace East Garden and the Meiji Shrine. After a great day Hiro accompanied us back to the train station.

Hiroshi:

Dear Judy and Peter It was my great pleasure to be your guide. And thank you very much for your great evaluation. I am glad to know you understood Japanese culture and history. You are great couple like camphor trees in Meiji Shrine. I think you are now on the way to Narita airport and wish you to have great and enjoyable days in London. I hope I can see you again. Hiro
