Amazing 1 day guide

Hiro speaks excellent English and was very flexible to my families needs for a tour. He shared his city with us and we were so excited to learn from him. He took us to a culture fest and to a great ramen shop. He had to research events because it was during the new year which limited some of the sights for us. He helped us get on the train and navigate the inner workings of the Tokyo underground department stores. I can't recommend Hiro enough to you. He was great and when we are in Tokyo again, I will definitely use him!

Hi Christian, thank you very much for the nice comment! I was honored to be the tour guide for your family. 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. Hiro

Great experience with Hiro

We decided to book a guide last minute to save time. We booked Hiro as he looked friendly and we liked his introduction video. He was on time and went through what he thought we should see in the 4 hours we had. To our surprise Hiro also asked if he could video the day for us. He sent the video to us that night and it was amazing and we will have it forever now as a keepsake of our time in Tokyo. He also took plenty of photos for us and explained all the sites, he clearly loves his country. We highly recommend Hiro for his service and friendliness for our tour of Tokyo. Marlena & Guy

Great time in Tokyo!

We had a really fun time with Hiro exploring the Edo-Tokyo Museum, Imperial Palace Gardens and eating chankonabe. He was very knowledeagable and we learned a lot about Japan and Japanese culture during our time with him. He also made a video of the tour for us which was great!
