Many people visit Yokohama to enjoy nice view of port ,bridge, historical buildings and parks. But not many people know good place to take pictures. I will show you nice places to take pictures while enjoying sightseeing , food and talking . Please join me, to make your travel more memorable one.
Feel free to personalize this offer with Hiroshi.
In this tour, I will take you to at least 7 impressive places for picture taking . It is possible to visit Yokohama by yourself . But not everybody takes pictures at ideal places. Therefore my knowledge will help you to keep good memory of Yokohama.
Yokohama is a big town and central area is surrounded by big buildings. The first point is near Sakuragi-cho area ,which is original port area, has several places to enjoy nice view of buildings and amusement park. The second point is an ideal place to see Yokohama Bay bridge. The third point is famous Red bricks warehouse area where always some events are taken place. After the Red bricks warehouse area, we will see 3 historical towers. There is one tower which has historical value in inside which you can take pictures. And the next point is close to Yamashita park. It is a well known place and has not well-known historical story . Chinatown is another place where you can enjoy different atmosphere and pictures than any place else. After China town, you have a choice for further tour. The first one is Harbor view park area which has westernized park and the second one is Sankei-En which is much bigger and Japanese style garden.
At Harbor view park area, there is atmosphere of early stage of Westernized Japan and Western style gardens with many flowers including roses.
Sankei-En which is a big Japanese garden located in south of central Yokohama and it takes about 30 minutes from China town by bus. You can enjoy the garden all the year round with different scene and flowers. It means you can enjoy different points for picture taking in every season. My recommendation is Sankei-En.
Transportation fee( you and guide), meal, entrance fee, Hotel pick up if hotel location is out of Yokohama
It is depend on weather condition if you can take satisfying picture or not.
This tour is walking tour. Therefore, wearing sneaker is recommended.
If you choose Sankei-En for the last place to go, it may take more than planned time .

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
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
