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.

“ Amazing guide! ”

Hiro was a wonderful guide. I’m so glad we found him. He was extremely knowledgeable and thorough, explaining everything in detail. He also helped us get acclimated to Tokyo, explaining the subway system to us and even helping us secure JR train tickets for upcoming travel throughout our trip. I would highly recommend Hiro to anyone - he’s fantastic!


Hi Caitlin, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave me such a great review. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. It was so nice meeting you two. Please enjoy the rest of your days staying in Japan.

“ Wonderful experience ”

Hiro turned a rainy, cold day into a warm, friendly experience. He showed us how to navigate the complex rail and subway system and how to buy and use Pascodes. His English was very good and he went out of his way to make sure bad weather did not spoil our trip.


Hi Robert, thank you very much for the nice comment! I was honored to be the tour guide for you. All members of your party are cheerful and friendly that I myself enjoyed the tour and the peaceful moment very much. I hope that you will visit Japan in the future and choose me as your tour guide. I will be so happy to be part of your group. Thank you very much for the great opportunity.

He met us at our hotel and took us around town, into subways and out again. He showed us most of the things we had asked to see and had time for and Even found a pharmacy so we could buy some medicin. Overall a good experience. We would recommend Hiro to anyone wanting to see Japan with a local guide.

“ A wonderful day with Hiro-san ”

We had a wonderful day with Hiro-san in Tokyo. Hero-san was very helpful in providing us basic information to get around Tokyo using public transportation and provided maps and other information. He was very helpful with finding a unique cooking item. His knowledge about Japanese customs and life in Japan was wonderful. He recommended an excellent Shabu Shabu restaurant. I highly recommend Hiro-san as a guide.


Hi Grant-san, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I had great pleasure sharing your valuable time with a wonderful couple. I am really grateful to know that you enjoyed the tour. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Have a wonderful time for the rest of your stay in Japan! Hiro
