We are so happy we chose Hiroshi for our tour of Tokyo. We were on a Millenium cruise of Japan and decided the ship’s excursion didn’t match our wish list. Hiroshi met us at the dock in Yokohama and traveled with us by train and metro to Tokyo. That morning Tokyo had heavy showers, so he instantly altered our agenda to go to two very interesting museums, one on Sumo wrestling and the other on Edo-Tokyo. When the rain stopped at noon and we resumed our agenda. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch in a traditional restaurant, free of tourists. Tokyo’s metro system is huge, modern and a wonderfully efficient way to see Tokyo, but it is complex and we were so happy to have Hiroshi lead the way. He is fun, has a great sense of humor, and gave great insight into the culture and history. He ... read more
We enjoyed our Hakone day trip with Hiro. He is funny, knowledgeable and easy to have conversation with. His command of English is excellent, which helped a lot while he shared his knowledge about Japanese history. The weather wasn’t great on our day of visit to Hakone, but the excellent Open Air Museum made up for the bad weather. Thank you Hiro!
Dear Eileen Thank you for your great review about my guide. I always try to make my customer's trip the most enjoyable one. Unfortunately, the weather was not good. But I am happy to know the Open air museum compensate the weather condition. . I enjoyed being with your family. Your husband is very calm and I like him a lot. your son is shy and I like him, too. Of course Eileen you are wonderful lady. If you have chance to come back to Japan again, please appoint me as your guide in any place close to Yokohama. Thank you Eileen and I wish we have chance to see again. Best regards Hiro
Even before meeting us, Hiroshi starts helping us with our Japan tour, not to bring to much luggage, having a look after our not-so-easy-to-find appartment. Was there before time, well prepared. It was cherry blossom and full moon high season, so whole Japan was happy in pink and out. We find our way in the imperial garden to the former castle, learning a lot about history and different signs on roof tiles. We visit a shrine, learning to clean ourself with water in the right ceremonial way. Having a quick lunch with Hiroshi and heading for the all-are-going-crossing, where our guide take an artistic picture of us in the middle of the crowd from a point at one of the skyscrapers. Thank you for that. Than Kamakura, going by train and using the old tram, learning, how to queue up like the Ja... read more
Hiroshi-san showed us around Tokyo during a full day tour. He came to pick us up at our hostel, early, and we saw Tsukiji Hongan-ji temple, Tsukiji market, had lunch at a very nice sushi restaurant, visited the Hokusai art museum, the Fukagawa Edo museum, and the Sumo museum near the stadium complete with a visit to the Sumo clothing store. So you can see that you should prepare for a full day of walking and learning! Hiroshi-san is very knowledgeable about all the history of the places we visited and can answer almost all of your questions. He adapted the tour to our specific interests when we exchanged emails prior to the trip and even prepared tour materials in English to give to us about other places we were planning on visiting on other days in Japan. He put in alot of effort to make ... read more
