Dear Mori San, We had a really lovely time in Japan and we all absolutely adore Tokyo. You were a fantastic friend in introducing all of us to all of the wonderful things Tokyo has to offer. We will be back!! (from New York, USA)

Dear Hideki-san, For a splendid day we could enjoy with you, I like to thank you very much.

“ Wonderful Time at Mount Fuji ”

Mori-San is a very knowledgeable and articulate guide with an expansive world view. If you wish to get in-depth information of Japanese history & culture, he is definitely the right person to accompany you on your trips. He impressed us with his planning and advice even before we meet him. We had no difficulty planning our itinerary with his guidance. Although we visited Tokyo and Mt Fuji in bad weather (heat wave and typhoon) forecasted, he made good suggestions to work around the weather, ensuring that we do not waste any precious time. Finally, he is very flexible which is important as our group which consisted of my elderly parents who have problems walking. He ensures that nobody is left out and proposed very reasonable arrangements. We were really in good hands with his help.... read more

“ Perfect Custom Tour ”

Our extended family spent four days with Mori-san in Kanagawa. He put together an excellent itinerary combing tourist destinations in Hakone, Kamakura, Yokohama and Odawara with experiences of traditional Japanese life. Our group included ages 17-84 and had varied interests so this was no simple task. Once he got to know us better he adjusted our plans accordingly. Mori-san speaks excellent English and is very organized while still remaining flexible and easy going. He has also travelled extensively and has many interests which allows him to be an ideal host and guide. We very much enjoyed getting to know him and learning more about Japan. Arigato gozaimas Mori-San!

“ Excellent guide, high english proficiency. ”

Hideki is a friendly guide who showed us (a group of 2) around Tokyo. He guided us around to very specific places we wanted to go, and familiarized us with the subway system. He's friendly, proficient in English, and I can't recommend him enough.

HIDEKI:

Dear Pablo, Thank you very much for your review. I enjoyed the morning walk in central part of Tokyo with you. I hope you'll have more chance to encounter new and interesting things during your stay in Japan. Please take care and have fun. Thank you and good luck! Best regards, Hideki Mori

“ The Tsukiji Outer Market was a rush! ”

My day was one of contrasts. I love to visit local food markets when I travel. Hideki deftly navigated me through the bustling and colorful Tsukiji Market. Compare that to the calm and serenity found in the Hama-rikyu Gardens and the Meiji-jingu Shinto Shrine. Combined, they made for a wonderful introduction to Tokyo, all thanks to Hideki.

HIDEKI:

Dear Jeanne, Thank you for taking your time and writing a good review for me. I also enjoyed the Tsukiji market packed with tourists and the peaceful Hamarikyu garden with plum blossoms. At the same time, I enjoyed talking and exchanging ideas with you. Hope to see you in the future. Thank you and best regards, Hideki Mori
