We spent one amazing day trip from Tokyo to Kamakura with Hideaki. Very nice, punctual, informative. His English is excellent too! We’ve been to Japan many times and have seen the Daibutsu, but my daughter was to young to remember. So, with Japan’s COVID restrictions we hired Hideaki to visit Kamakura. Wow, we were impressed with his knowledge and information! We learned so much and are grateful for his tour. We went to Kotokuin temple, Hasedera Temple, and Hokokuji Temple with the beautiful bamboo forest. It was better than going on our own. We also had an amazing okonomiyaki lunch! Hideaki was very kind and gave us suggestions for our transportation to Narita Airport for the following day. Highly recommend him! Thank you Hideaki for the beautiful memories!
Marianne-san, Thank you very much for your review. I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed the Kamakura tour even though it was a humid day. I also had a good time talking with you and daughter. Next time, please come to Japan in spring or autumn and enjoy more beautiful scenery. Hideaki Murayama
I liked the guide's attitude to guests. He was very kind and care about guests' interest. His tour was interactive with guest. I really enjoyed his tour.
Noriko-san, Thank you very much for your review. I also had a good time chatting with you. Hoping that everything will go back to normal soon. Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama
Hikeaki showed up at our hotel lobby early. He was very well prepared. He is attentive and gracious and will match his pace to what his clients like, which is nice. He showed us all the interesting aspects of Nikko. We enjoyed his company and felt well taken care of.
Inez-san, Thank you very much for your review. I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed the Nikko tour. I also had a good time talking with you and your sisters. Especially, your sister invented a new Japanese cuisine. That is Tonkatsu Udon. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama
Hideaki San is indeed very professional, prompt with correspondence, detailed in his itineraries, and accurate in his estimate of out of pocket expenses, just like what others said. He is gentle, caring, and knows how to lead us well. Among the nine of us, some wanted to linger around taking photos while others could not wait to move on. Hideaki San managed that. Ours was a one day tour in Hakone. We started out from Tokyo. Later, we enjoyed the cruise on Lake Ashinoko, the view of Mount Fuji, the Hakone Komagatake Ropeway, walking the trail to Mototsumiya Shrine, and the stroll through the Open Air Museum. At the end of the day, Hideaki San gave us instructions on how to get to our ryokan and saw us off at the bus stop. We are very pleased and highly recommend him to anyone.
Myra-san. Thank you very much for your review. As your family is so nice, I also shared a pleasant time. We were so lucky that day that we could view beautiful Mt. Fuji together with Lake Ashi. Actually, it’s often foggy and cloudy there. Did you enjoy hot spring that night? Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama
