I highly recommend Hiroshi as your guide in Kyoto. He took me to the Nijo Jinya which requires an interpreter, Nijo Castle, Kyoto State Guest House and Sanjusagen-do Temple. All were amazing. Hiroshi also help me resolve a problem I was having with JR pass. Without his help I would have had to buy new Shinkansen tickets. Hiroshi is knowledgeable, caring and very friendly.

Hiroshi Y.

Dear Nicole R Thank you for your great reviews on one day tour in Kyoto. You looked like a professional photographer because you were taking pictures in every nook and corner except Sanjyu- sangen-do temple. I felt so happy and relieved to hear that JR Pass problem was solved at last on that day. Best regards Sep21 Hiroshi Y.

Tours of Nara and Kyoto

Hiroshi was an outstanding tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the history of both Nara and Kyoto and speaks excellent English. We covered both areas in about 8 hours each day and the really nice part of his tour was he avoided the large crowds which allowed us to see more sights. When we go back, we will definitely employ Hiroshi's services again. A+++ rating!

Hiroshi Y.

Dear Kyle H. I say thank you for your great reviews on tour in Kyoto and Nara. I also enjoyed guiding such a knowledgeable person like you , esp. Japanese traditional architecture. I hope you may get an inspiration from unique temple and gardens. Best regards Sep 14 Hiroshi Y.

Just the perfect guide for Kyoto!

We really enjoyed the day full of interesting facts and walking in historical and meaningful places. Such Beautiful shrines and Temples! He walks very, very fast so be prepared! We love the way mr Hiroshi asked us several questions as a quiz master, we are sure he must have been a great teacher in his elementary school before becoming a guide.

Hiroshi Y.

Dear Grace R I 'm very sorry I didn't reply sooner. I am grateful to you for your great reviews on Aug 28 one day tour in Kyoto. Because all of your family members looked younger than me, I walked fast during the tour, sorry. I felt so happy to hear from that you and your family enjoyed touring in Kyoto. Best regards Sep 21 Hiroshi Y.
