I had a wonderful day with Tatsuhiro-san and so did my two friends! I would highly recommend Tatsuhiro-san for his interesting stories, kind nature and local insight. He organised a full day for us in Shiga prefecture, to see a local temple, the Hikone castle, lunch, and to see Lake Biwa. He was very flexible with our interests and needs throughout the day, and was great fun to talk to. On the rare occasion that we couldn't understand each other, we simply wrote it down and quickly worked it out. I enjoyed spending time with him and his tour was very informative and well tailored to our interests. He is the perfect thoughtful host!
Hi Shannon-san, Michael-san & Cameron-san, Thank you so much for your favorable comment on my work. I am really encouraged. I was happy to see your smiling faces at the end of day which was the greatest reward to me. I still regret, however, that I was unable to understand your remarks on a number of occasions on our tour. I will try even harder to improve my listening abilities. I wish you all a good luck and a fruitful new year. And many thanks for your souvenir. I find it very delicious. See you again. Regards, ... read more
He is the nicest person! We enjoyed him very much as someone who was able to navigate our total lack of Japanese.
Hi Ligia-san, Thank you very much for your favorable comment. I enjoyed your company and I am glad you have come to know some of the most popular sights in Kyoto. I hope you will enjoy your golden years more and more in greater health. Good luck. Regards, Tatsuhiro
A very friendly guide. He helped navigate us through Kyoto. Other people commented on his English, I think it was ok. No better than one could expect from a native citizen and local. I’d prefer this kind of person anyways since they know the “tricks”. He was kind to ensure he understood and verified your question’s answer.
Hi Sean-san & Kim-san, I am encouraged to have received a favorable comment like this. In fact, I felt sorry for asking you to repeat your questions on many occasions, but now I realize that`s the way you native speakers of English speak the language. Anyway, I am glad you completed the tour and saw for yourself some of the traditional beauties and cultures of our country. I hope to see you again. My love to all the people in the state of Connecticut. Regards, Tatushiro
We had a good time and a great tour with dear Tatsuhiro, he is a very good guide and we really enjoyed all the sights, thank your very much again Tatsuhiro
Hi Peter-san, Thank you very much for your favorable comment. I am really encouraged. I am glad that we completed the tour safely and that you kept smiling all the way. Also, it is a great relief for me that your were well in time for the ship`s departure. I wish you all a greater health. Many thanks. Regards, Tatsuhiro
Tatsuhiro San was our guide for 3 days in the Kyoto area. He showed us Kyoto for 2 days and then also took us to Nara and Osaka. He is a kind old man with a good knowledge of the area but we felt that we did not get our money's worth as it was very difficult to communicate with him. On 2 days we lost an hour each as we tried to find him at Kyoto station and even when we were with him it was difficult to communicate with him. His spoken english is good but his listen comprehension is very slow. He had trouble understanding us.
Hi Shailendra-san, Thank you very much for your enlightening comments. I am glad that you enjoyed your tour of Kyoto and Nara, but I feel sorry for failing to meet you on time and for having an enormous difficulty understanding you. I spent a long period of time reading English editorials and not enough time communicating with the native speakers. Hence my insufficient listening comprehension. I will take your remarks seriously into consideration and try to improve my skill as a guide from now on. Many thanks again. Wish you a good luck. Regards, Tatsuhiro
Our day with Tatsuhiro-san was an extremely interesting one. He took us to many of Kyoto's cultural landmarks and explained the history behind them in great detail. He is a very knowledgeable and kind-hearted guide. He always wants to help tourists make the most out of their stay in Japan whilst also sharing the history behind the country. We would definitely recommend Tatsuhiro-san anyone to wishing to see Kyoto and learn about the history. Thank you Tatsuhiro-san for an amazing day!
Hi Marcus-san, Emily-san, Paul-san and Jonathan-san, Many thanks for your favorable comment. I am really encouraged. My primary purpose for this job is to have visitors from abroad feel happy, satisfied and enlightened through the tour I share with them and I am sure I got a full mark from you. I am glad if this trip helped you understand our society and Japan as a whole to some extent. I wish you a good luck and success in your career. More and more. Regards, Tatsuhiro
We had a customized tour. Had listed down the places we wanted to see and he planned a tour schedule for us. He was friendly and very accomodating. He was very informative on all the places we went. He also acted as a translator at the markets. He went out of his way to make sure we were on the right train back to osaka before we parted ways. He is recommended if you are looking for a good tour guide.
Hi Karen-san, Thank you so much for your favorable comments. I am really encouraged and am determined to do better in my jobs from now on. Above all, it`s the best reward for me that you enjoyed the tour and that you are now safely back in your country. Wish you a good health and success in your career. Regards, Hiro
Tatsuhiro is very kind and patient. He always reply my email and try to answer my question. He also give suggestion and recommendation for the tour. He also get refund for my mom ticket of Kaiyukan and assist to make reservation for the restaurant in Kyoto. However, he got a little confused when we took train to Osaka City Tour. But it was understandable because he is not originally from Osaka. My mom is in wheelchair and we are big group (16 person), can not handle easily. However, we had so much fun in Osaka and great time to see the beautiful of Kyoto. I wish him good luck and thank you for his kind service.
Hi Maya-san, Selamat sore. Thank you very much for your favorable review on the two-day tour. I enjoyed your company everywhere we visited. I received a lot of energy from the kids who are steadily growing up. Nothing is more encouraging than seeing kids` smiling faces. Meanwhile, I humbly accept your comment on my confusion regarding the transportation in Osaka. I will fully take that into consideration. Also, I feel sorry for having lost sight of you at Kaiyukan Osaka Aquarium. It` s also the source of reflection for me. I wish you all a greater happiness and a brighter future. I wish to see you again. Terimakasih. Regards, ... read more
We had a wonderful night with Tasuhiro, Hiro-san. Starting with his punctuality, it led to an engaging night exploring Osaka and its vibrant food district. As first-time visitors to Osaka, he was a great asset, escorting us from Kyoto and immersing us in the local cultural rituals and adding his knowledge of the area. He was charming company and when we return one day, we would like to see him again and head out on another urban adventure together.
Hi Christopher-san & Stephanie-san, Thank you so much for your favorable comment. I am really encouraged. I truly appreciate your kindness treating me to a wonderful "yakiniku" dinner. You originally requested dropping in at a "takoyaki" stall, which is widely popular among Osaka citizens. I actually found one on our way back to Namba station, but didn`t suggest we spend time there, since I thought your stomach might be full. We walked on the bridge across a river flowing between the rows of plush buildings. It`s Dotombori-river, where reckless and enthusiastic baseball fans often jump into when their favorite team wins a championship. I wish I can take you to more places the next time you visit this city of "kui-daore", meaning you can eat until you fall down onto the ground, a com... read more
We arrived at Kyoto station at 9:55 am on N6 as planned with Tatashiro and came out to the central entrance...... looking for a sign with our name.... we waited for 30 minutes. At which tine I bought train tix myself to Ishiyama and asked how to find the correct track. We went to the MIHO on our own with the help of my guide book. Very disappointed that Mr. TAtashiro was not there. Poor impression of Triple lights John Bisenius
Very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in answering questions not related to his tour subject. We recommend him highly
Hi Alice-san, I really appreciate your favorable comments on my work. Thank you so much. I wish you all a good health and happiness. I am forever thinking of you from the other side of the Pacific Ocean. Hope to see you again. Regards, Tatsuhiro
Tastuhiro was very nice and even wrote down the questions that he was not sure about. He then came back to me with the answer via email.
Hi Romain-san, Thank you very much for your favorable comment on my work. I am really encouraged. I am glad you had a chance to have a firsthand look at one of the most beautiful feudal-era castles in Japan. I hope your visit here will remain forever in your memory. I wish you all a good luck and good health. Regards, Tatsuhiro
We have an enjoyable tour with Tatsuhiro as our guide. He brought us to the places that we want to see like Tofukuji Temple, Arashima area, Osakajo Castle and other places of interests. He also guided us to shopping area like Daiso. He is patient with us and his knowledge about the places that we tour is quite good. He is also on time in fetching us from our hotel. Most of all he is friendly, honest and a descent person.
Hi Benjamin-san, Magandan gabi. I am sure you are back to your country and have settled in your work by now. Thank you very much for your favorable comment on my work. I am very glad you enjoyed the two-day tour. What I truly felt happy about was your smiles. Nothing can make me more enjoyable and happier than seeing people smiles. I am really encouraged to have your comment like this. I will try even harder to have my customers feel satisfied in the tours I accompany them from now on. Salamat. Regards, Tatsuhiro
Mr. Tatsuhiro made our experience in Kyoto something we would cherish forever. He is a gentleman, very patient and so sweet. He met us with a Jack O lantern with USA flag. Very welcoming. During our several months of planning this trip, he communicated with us efficiently. He is prompt and professional. He introduced us to the culture and food. We totally enjoyed his guidance. Arigato gozaimasu!
Hi Antonio-san, Thank you so much for your favorable comment. I could never been happier in my career so far helping you understand the city of Kyoto ant its culture. Your kindness was overwhelming. I wish you all a good health and the better future. By the way, I have learned the Spanish language "sukoshi", or a bit. See you again. Regards, Tatsuhiro
Hero is a great tour guide. He took us on 2 tours one in Kyoto and the other in Nara. He is very knowledgeable and was eager to share all of his insights. He is very friendly and outgoing and curious about his customers lives. I highly recommend him.
Hi Steve-san, Thank you so much for your favorable comments on my work. I am greatly encouraged and feel motivated to do a better job from now on. After all, the greatest reward I have got from the two-day tour is that you enjoyed your time here in Japan. I wish you all a good luck. And a happy future for your two post-millennial kids. Regards, Tatsuhiro (Hiro for short)
Tatsuhiro is very kind and respectful. He was eager to share local insights, advice and directions on inquiries, even those unrelated to the tour. I was impressed that he was well versed with Japanese-Philippine history and felt his sincerity in wanting to better understand our culture and people. We had to put extra effort to understand his English at times.
Hi Marissa-san, Thank you very much for your favorable comments. I am much encouraged. Above all, I am glad we could safely complete the tour and that your entire family enjoyed viewing the full-blown cherry trees. I wish your daughter and two sons a promising future. I am also thankful to you for treating me to lunch. On the other hand, I sincerely and humbly accept your last remark on my (lack of) fluency in speaking English. I will definitely try to improve it. Last but not least, I am always nagged with one question: Are children in the Philippines happy? I hope they are. Before I conclude my reply, I should say I am always open to your questions regarding our culture, history and society in general. See you. Wish you a good luck and hope to see you again. Regards, Tatsuhiro
Very nice itinerary, guide was super polite and helpful. Excellent experience
Hi Agni-san, Thank you so much for your favorable comment. I enjoyed your company and I am really happy we were safely back to Osaka. I hope this tour will give you more energy in you life. I wish a good luck for your entire family. See you again. Refgards, Tatsuhiro
Tatsuhiro was very prompt, patient,helpful, and kind. We learned a lot from him.
Hi Jackie-san, Thanl you so much for your praise with beautiful words. I am much encouraged. I spent a hapy time with you in the tour in spite of the rainy weather. I wish the tour will remain in your memory forever. And a good health for you all. Regards, Tatsuhiro
We (my family 3 kids aged 15,14,11) visiting from Chicago enjoyed the day with Tatsuhiro. He made sure to ask what we wanted to do to plan the trip and then adjust to our needs during the tour. We enjoyed Kyoto and my kids were able to engage and learn to much about a city they had never visited. Highly recommend!
Hi Kavita-san, Thank you very much for your favorable comment. I really enjoyed being with you in our tour of Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine, Tofukuji temple and Kinkakuji Golden Pavilion. I am happy you and your loved ones came in contact with Kyoto with fresh eyes and curiosity. More than anything, I felt the warm family atmosphere. I wish your children a prospective future. See you again. Regards, Tatsuhiro
We had a wonderful evening tour with Tatsuhiro to see Hanatoro on the last night. This evening was a highlight of our holiday & the memories will last. We enjoyed the company of Tatsuhiro & saw everthing on the walking trail, we took so many photos.
Hi Sally- & Bill-san, Thank you so much for your favorable comments on my work. I am very glad you two enjoyed the tour. I am really encouraged to have your words of appreciation and I have renewed my determination to do an even better job next time on. I wish you two a greater health and happiness. And a healthy growth for your granddaughter. See you again. Regards, Tatsuhiro
Tatsuhiro-san was truly valuable in navigating the kyoto bus system. He had thoughtfully prepared for the tour by keeping in touch with us via email prior to our arrival in Osaka, and he had even visited the sites on our itinerary a week ahead just so he can brief us on what we could expect to see and how to better maximize it, as well made sure all necessary reservations were made on some of the destinations we intended to visit. He loves discussing Japanese history and was always ready with his notebook and pencil to note down any additional questions we had. However, what was outstanding is how he made sure we were properly cared for and comfortable during the tour - Tatsuhiro even carried with him some sitting cushions for us to use during the scenic ride in sagano and also brought alo... read more
Dear Agnes-san and your family, Thank you very much for your favorable comments on my guiding. I am happy you enjoyed the whole day in Kyoto and that the tour ended without a hitch. In fact, nothing is more encouraging and rewarding than having my job appreciated by my customer. I will try even harder to have smiling faces from tourists I accompany from now on. I hope to see you again. Many thanks. I wish you a good luck and an excellent health. And a Happy New Year. Regards, Tatsuhiro
My guests reported back that tatsuhiro was a delight. Very vety informative and giving of his time. I will certainly hire him again. Thank you tatsuhiro!
Dear Jill-san, Thank you so much for your favorable comment on our tour of the 22nd of November. Nothing could be more encouraging and rewarding for me than having my job appreciated by my client. I will try to enrich my knowlege on the sights in Kyoto and those in other cities as well. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Last but not least, I wish all of you a good health and good luck. However dark, cold and humid the weather in England may be in the months ahead, you will have a spring full of sunlight again after such a period. So, goodbye for now. Regards, Hiro
