Passengers of Cruise ships arriving at Yokohama have some difficulties to enjoy Japan. Main reason is the location of piers are not in a convenient area and it is not clear how to get the destinations. I will solve those problems and make your staying in Japan a enjoyable one. Please tell me your destination; Tokyo, Yokohama, kamakura or Hakone? I will take you to the places you wish to go.
Feel free to personalize this offer with Hiroshi.
In cruise tour, you can enjoy inside of ships but at the same time you have some concern about how to enjoy after the cruise. Yokohama has nice piers and good location to visit many popular places. But problem is how to get those places is not clear. The reason is locations of piers are not in a convenient area. Where is the nearest station? How to get there? How to deal with luggage? I will solve those concerns and make your stay in Japan the most enjoyable one with reasonable price.
You can chose the destination you wish to go and tell me what you like to do or to see. I will make a plan for you and contact you before you arrive at Yokohama. You can consult me about your concern in Japan; for example how to deal with your luggage or how to get other area by the best route, etc.
You have choice to buy optional tours in cruise ship. But they are a group tour and you do not have any freedom to change the schedule. But my tour offers a very flexible schedule. If one place is more than your expectation, we can extend the time to stay at the place.
guide fee only
transportation fee in the tour(you and guide), admission fee(you and guide), meal (you and guide)
Most of Cruise ships arrive at Oosanbashi (Big pier) and in this case I can meet you at the pier. But some ships arrive at Daikoku pier or Yamashita pier. In those cases, I may ask you to take a shuttle bus to Sakuragi-cho station. I will meet you at the bus terminal.

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 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.
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
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.
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
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
