Hiro was amazing!! My husband, in-laws, and I did a Christmas Eve tour with Hiro in Kamakura and she absolutely made our day so special. So sweet and an absolute pleasure to be with. She had great information, recommendations & stories that really made our trip unforgettable. We would have only gotten 1/10 of the experience & driven ourselves crazy trying to figure out how to get to all the places we wanted to see. Did you know you could go inside Kōtoku-in?? We didn't and I dont think we would have figured it out without Hiro there to guide us. She even took us to an awesome lunch spot that we would never have found ourselves. I recommend Hiro to anyone visiting Kamakura!! Also, Hiro made us realize just how much a guide can improve the experience, so because of how awesome she was, ri... read more
Hello, Victoria! Thank you very much for the wonderful review and the message on the Kamakura tour. I’m so happy to know that you enjoyed the day. I am not a Christian, though, I also had an unforgettable Christmas Eve that I’d never had before, because I was with you all, the wonderful family. You all are so nice, and it's really nice to know you respect each other. I was so impressed when I was able to know your deep respect to this country’s culture as well. Thank you very much for your great interest and listening to my talks. You are such a happy family, and on that day, I was the happiest guide in Japan. Thanks again! Hiro
We had a great time , Hiro had an amazing amount of local knowledge.
Michael, thank you very much for the nice review and your comment. It's a lot of fun talking with you three. You all are such wonderful people with a sense of humor in addition to courteous manners. Also what you talked to me interested me a lot. I really had a great time, too. It would be great happiness, if you'd remember me when you come to Japan again. Thank you very much, again. Take care! Hiro
Hiro is a knowledgeable guide. Knew exactly what I was looking for to enjoy in Kamakura. Very pleasant person and excellent communication skills.
Our day with Hiro went really well, form start to finish. She came to meet us at our hotel in Tokyo and took great care of every detail of the trip - even brought maps of Tokyo station to help us not get lost on our way back from Kamakura. The itinerary was well organized to include main Kamakura highlights, the information provided was detailed and well researched, the lunch reservation exquisite - we sat in a very good traditional restaurant where Hiro explained a lot about Japanese food and traditions. At the end of the day, she saw us off at Kamakura station, making sure we got on the right train back to Tokyo. She is a caring and thoughtful person, highly educated, with artistic hobbies and skills - a perfect travel companion!
Hello, Ariana! It was really nice meeting you and thank you very much for your wonderful comments for the day in Kamakura with me. I’m more than happy if I was able to help you have one of the greatest days in Japan. Also I feel really grateful for letting me join your family’s quality time. I was lucky being with such well-informed and smart travelers as you, and I enjoyed every single minute talking with you, since you’ve got interested in many things. Thank you for your interests in Japan and its culture. I hope this trip will keep you cherishing the fond memories of your family and having Japan as one of the countries that you love. Thanks again, Ariana, and please convey my best regards to your husband and son! Cheers! Hiro
Hiro was an excellent, very efficient and knowledgeable guide for our day trip to Kamakura. While the sights were beautiful the background history she provided really added to the experience. Hiro was very accommodating with our requests and patient with all our questions. We had nice detour to a local coffee shop (unplanned) and enjoyed a nice relaxing drink. Hiro was very flexible with us throughout the day. We would recommend Hiro to any person interested in taking a tour of Kamakura. Thank you Hiro! We hope to see you again someday!
Thank you very much, Jason. How nice of you to send the kind words. I really enjoyed the tour in Kamakura with you. You all turned out to be good walkers, so I might have made you tired at the end of the day. I really hope you've been fine from the following day. You were so vigorous that it was very happy for me to talk about many things with the active travelers like you three. Let me take you to Enoshima Island next time! Thanks a lot, again. Please convey my deep gratitude to Caitlin and Matt as well for me. Cheers! Hiro
She was outstanding! Spoke great English and was extremely attentive throughout the day - especially because we were travelling with a 1 year old baby. We used 5 different guides during our trip throughout Japan and we considered Hiro to be the best one of the group in terms of not only knowledge but also making sure we visited the sites we requested in the custom tour.
Thank you very much for your nice comments! Your review gives me great encouragement. I enjoyed every moment of the day being with you, your wife, and your lovely princess.(I was so crazy about the cute little angel!) I will treasure your words and this experience as the happiest guide in the world. Thanks again, and I hope the travel leaves you full of pleasant memories of the family.
Ms. Hiro was perfect, she was kind and very well informed with the places and Japan's history. She's well informed with transportations around Japan and she speaks very good English.
Thank you very much for sending your nice review, Mita-san! I appreciate your comments. I had a great day being with such a friendly person like you and your lovely daughter. I hope Kamakura gave you a favorable impression and left pleasant memories of a mother-and-daughter cherishing trip. Thanks a lot, again! Hiro
What a wonderful way to see Kamakura! Hiro was so knowledgeable and organised. She arranged the best lunch we had on our entire Japan trip. It was the little personal touches during the day which made it a great day out. Highly recommend her tour. Thanks so much Hiro.
Thank you very much for your favorable review ! It was great pleasure being with you sharing every moment of fun or tranquility in this ancient capital. Also I really appreciate your friendliness. In particular, I was impressed that you never minded the odd interviews from the student reporters who were tackling with their English assignments during their school excursions. You made my day, too. Thanks a lot!
Since we were unfamiliar with the transportation in Tokyo we asked her to meet us at her hotel. She accompanied us on the train and when we arrived in Kamakura gave us a day filled with great experiences. She was very aware of our abilities, we were in our late 60s and early 70s. She was caring, informative and have us a wonderful day.
It was really nice meeting you, Spencer! Thank you very much for your favorable comment. Since you all are so nice and friendly people, I really enjoyed being with you. Come to think of it, you walked a lot, didn’t you? You all are good walkers! I hope Kamakura will be a place that’s worth remembering for you. Thanks a lot.
Hiro took our family of 5 on a tour of Kamakura. We actually rented a car and driver since it was quite rainy. As a result, the travel to Kamakura was very pleasant, and Hiro was able to give us a lot of info about samurai culture en route. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Engaku-ji, as well as the specially chosen restaurant to suit our dietary restrictions. Hiro was great and really helped us enjoy our visit to the capital of Samurai culture!
Thank you very much for sending your review, and I really appreciate your nice comments. It was my great pleasure to have a trip to Kamakura with such a happy family. Thank you for letting me join in your nice family. The weather was not good that day, but I'd be more than happy if you enjoyed the day in Kamakura. I believe your brilliant children who listened to my story with great interest will become respectable grown-ups. Please convey my best regards to your husband and the kids. Thank you again!
Hiro was our guide for the day. She was brilliant. As we were first timers in Japan she met us at out Tokyo hotel and helped navigate rush hour through the station. She worked up a day that suited us including a great lunch at a small family restaurant and traditional tea house. Thank you Hiro.
Thank you very much for the review. What a wonderful family you have! I enjoyed every moment being with you all. I hope the one of your autumn days in my favorite city Kamakura will be an unforgettable pleasant memory of your family trip. Thanks a lot again!
