developed in Japan as well. I can offer you not only historic places like Nijo castle, Kinkakuji temple ,Kiyomizu temple etc., but also off the beaten track spots Nijo jinya house or nicknamed
"ninjya house" ,Katsura Imperial Villa etc.. I am really looking forward to seeing you .

“ Best Kyoto Guide! ”

We had a very interesting and fun day with Hiroshi. His past experience as a schoolteacher makes him an excellent guide, as he was very knowledgeable about all the sites and areas he showed us. Among the memorable places we visited with him was Fushimi Inari Shrine with its thousands of torii gates, the Golden Pavilion of Kinkajuji, and to Gion to catch a glimpse of geisha. He has an excellent sense of humor and took many pictures of us at the various attractions, which we look forward to receiving. Thank you for an excellent day!

“ Great day in Kyoto ”

My husband and I had an excellent 1-day tour. We saw many of the top sights in Kyoto and each was explained in detail. We are experienced travelers and have hired many guides and Hiroshi would be one of the best. He answered our questions and would seek answers if he didn’t know. When we expressed interest in art, he took us to a famous artist’s home which was a highlight of the day. Hiroshi is knowledgeable, funny, friendly, very helpful, reliable, and entertaining. He also speaks excellent English and is super energetic.

“ Kyoto day tour ”

Hiroshi is a wonderful guide! His services was excellent starting with communications before, during and after the tour! It was really worth it. He did a fantastic job showing us the sites and taking pictures too! The day was really packed and we did a lot of walking. So be prepared with comfortable shoes! Hiroshi seemed to have so much energy left at the end of the day, while we were spent! I highly recommend Hiroshi if you’re looking for a guide in Kyoto!
