“ 1 Day Koyasan - Private Tour ”

Hiroyuki was the absolute best, we are so grateful and happy that we booked him as our tour guide during our stay in Koyasan. Having just one day, we wanted to make sure that we saw the most important sites. He gave us such a thorough and full-circle tour of Koyasan. Before spending the day with Hiroyuki, I did not know much about Buddhism. And if I hadn’t had my tour with Hiroyuki, I would just be wandering around the beautiful sites that Koyasan has to offer, all without the beautiful meaning behind it all. He gave context and history to everything we were seeing.. Hiroyuki’s English is amazing, to say the least.. he is also so knowledgeable with Buddhism and the history of Koyasan, even down to the dates! He was very timely and made sure that we spent the right amount of time at all of the sites so that we could see the most, but at a relaxed pace. After the tour ended, he left us with an amazing packet of information that we have brought back to New York to remember this beautiful day in Koyasan. It was such a special experience to gain a friend in Hiroyuki, we will definitely be calling him for a tour in Koyasan or any of the areas where he has expertise. He was even so kind to send us amazing photos of us exploring. We absolutely cannot thank him enough...


Taylor san, How are you two doing? Thank you very much for posting such a great review and everything during the tour. I also enjoyed a lot in Koyasan. Arigatou gozaimashita. By the way, I have a friend who works at Kumamoto government. If you are interested in finding your relatives in Kumamoto,let me know. There might be something I can do for you for free. Thank you very much once again, I look forward to seeing you again. Matane! Hiroyuki
