Wonderful tour and great personality

Hiromi was a wonderful tour guide. She picked us up at the cruise ship port on time and communicated frequently prior to the tour. She took us to all of the locations we requested and even made a few extra stops along the way. She even picked up public travel cards with the amount needed prepaid so we didn’t waste time. Her English was excellent and she even shared an evening dessert with us before dropping us off back at our cruise ship. Our tour was on Christmas and we were grateful she was willing to take us to Kyoto and back for the holiday. Would love to go back and tour with her again. She is truly a blessing!

Dear Lorraine, I was almost crying to find your review!! Your single word makes me impressed deeply!It was the greatest day for me too since you and your mother were so nice people and patient for my immature English.The best memory of the day for me was the "evening dessert" at small pub just before our tour ends.You and your mother were so friendly and always smiling which made me relax a lot.I learned a lot from you.Thank you very much for your very nice review and choosing me as your tour guide.I look forward to seeing you again some time.Please take care and stay healthy.Thank you again! Hiromi

Hiromo Is highly recommended

She met be at hotel 15 minuets before the start of my first day in Osaka. She is a very nice friendly person who has traveled around quite extensively herself. We did a nigh walk of the food market . I mostly want to learn the food culture. She told me a lot of general Japanese customs. She took around Dotonbori St and some interesting out of the ways places . We got some Okonomiyaki for lunch. I would highly recommend HIROMI! It was the best thing I did was to have this tour as I had no idea what Japan would be like.

Takayama (Little Kyoto)

6 hours

Takayama is situated in a narrow and flat land surrounded by high mountains. Now it has become a hometown of many Japanese people since the access by rail and road has been improved so much. Developed after a Kyoto-style town-planning scheme under the administration of Lord Takayama in 1600s, the town is divided into three areas such as Samurai houses, Buddhist Temples and merchants' quarters. I would like to take you to Takayama Jinya, Kami-sannomachi avenue, and Yatai Floats Museum.
