Hi, I'm Hiro. I am a licensed national tour guide. I live in Yokohama, just an hour by train from Tokyo. Since my workplace is located in Tokyo, I know the capital from famous sightseeing spots to hidden places.
I love travelling. I have been to 15 countries around the world. While travelling, I love to experience the local cultures. I am, especially, fond of strolling local markets to feel the local vibes. If you want to feel what Japan is really like, I can show and share destinations of Japan from internationally popular ones to local neighborhoods such as Owl café or Izakaya restaurant. I will be very pleased to see you in Japan.
The prices below are for a private tour for you and your partner, family or friends.

Hiro instantly connected with us and not only showed us all the delights of Tsukiji Fish Market but introduced us to the cultural side of Japan and was a very engaging companion. We would recommend Hiro to anyone requiring a guide in Tokyo.
