About

Hi,I'm Hiroyuki Fukui. Please call me Hiro.
I'm a government certified guide interpreter.
I'm originally from Gifu Prefecture located in Central Japan and have lived in Nara city for more than twenty years.
I used to be a civil engineer working for a construction company and experienced overseas projects mainly in South Pacific region for about nine years.
During my stay abroad, I had an opportunity to look Japan from outside and realized the beauty of Japan from different point of view.
Now I retired from the company and I'm guiding foreign visitors mainly over Kansai district including Nara, Kyoto and Osaka to help them know more about the history, the culture and the people of Japan.
I'm looking forward to serving you soon.

Thank you.

“ Wonderful guide that can schedule what you want ”

We wanted to see a lot in 1 day in Kyoto, so took a taxi some places to save time and subway when it was just as fast. Hiro was full of information and answered our questions (many) in detail. He was right on time. We wanted a Japsnese lunch and he took us to a place with many selections and translated the menu (we were the only Americans there). His humor is infectious. If you want to see a lot with an interesting local, ask for Hiro. AAA+

Hiroyuki:

Dear Michael, I am very much pleased with your prompt and wonderful review on the tour with me. Although it was a bit chilly day today, you and Liz's warm atmosphere made me feel cheerful. Japan is full of interesting spots in rural areas too. I hope you will visit mysterious Japan again in the near future. Sincerely, Hiroyuki

“ Top notch experience, Hiroyuki is best !!! ”

We got introduced to Hiro via our Tokyo guide Yukiko as Yukiko was busy and was not available for Kyoto tour. The tour was arranged within a day’s notice and Hiro was top notch in planning a perfect day for our family. He picked us up at the Kyoto station, made us feel welcomed in Kyoto. During the site seeing, he was very informative with insights about history, and helped us with appropriate stops based on our interests. We covered major attractions without any rush and fortunately weather was nice. Hiro took us back the station to catch bullet train for Tokyo and helped us with buying tickets. Overall, very pleased with him and was a pleasant experience. I will hire him again.

Hiroyuki:

Dear Rajiv, It is a great pleasure for me to have a wonderful review on the tour over Kyoto. I am glad to hear that the tour was satisfactory to you, Piyash and Simran. Although autumn color season was almost over, we were still able to appreciate the remains of beautiful maple leaves during the tour.I look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Best regards, Hiroyuki

“ Fantastic day in Mt. Koya ”

Thank you Hiro for a great day that has exceeded expectations and was one of the holidays highlights for my husband and I. Mt.Koya is off the beaten tourist tracks, but what a tranquil place and definatly worth visiting. We booked the tour on relatively short notice, Hiro was great at responding and putting together a well thought through itenery with helpful recommendations. It was a bit of a journey getting there; Hiro met us at the hotel and then brought us back to Osaka, we are so pleased that he did! He was knowledgeable about the place, culture and history, as well as great fun to be around :) Definatly recommend him for your travels, domo arigato Hiro!

Hiroyuki:

Dear Anastasia, Thank you very much for a wonderful review on the tour with me over Koyasan. I had a very pleasant day with you and Doug. I am glad to know that the tour was satisfactory to you. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Best regards, Hiroyuki

“ Kyoto 1 Day Tour ”

Mr Hiroyuki is patience and the journey was well planned and not in a rush. He shared the culture and history for each place of interest which things we definitely will not know of. We enjoyed our day tour with him and will look for him again if we are going to different parts of Japan.

Hiroyuki:

Dear Lindy, I appreciate your prompt and high-rated review on the tour with me over Kyoto yesterday. I was very much impressed with your interest about the culture and history of Japan. It was such a coincidence to meet with your relatives from Singapore at Bamboo Forest. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future and wish you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Please give my best regards to Dervick and Ryan. Best regards, Hiroyuki
