Wakayama Tour Reviews

Hiroyuki is a wonderful guide!

My family and I had the pleasure of having "Hiro" as our guide for our two days in Osaka. On the first day, he took us to see the highlights of Osaka. On the second, he took us to Koya San. Both days were extremely special. Hiro, fluent in English, spent the first part of his career working in cultural management for the Japanese government so his knowledge of these sites is extraordinary. What is even more amazing, is his ability to explain very complicated details (historical, religious, and cultural) in the most concise and approachable way. His manner is calm and professional; he's a true gentleman and the perfect guide for travelers serious about getting the most meaning from their time here. Highest recommendation!!

Amazing guide for visit of main Kyoto landmarks + gardens

Hiroyuki showed up early and we packed way more into the day than I had dated to hope. He is incredibly experienced, very good English so we had lots of interesting conversations about the history and ideas of our destinations Strongly recommend

It was very nice meeting you yesterday in Kyoto. It was a beautiful day. It was also very nice to have conversations with a person who showed a lot of interest and respect to the history and culture of Japan. Sorry for the Nara tour. I hope that you will have another wonderful day in Nara.

Kyoto Highlight Tour

It was a pleasant time to meet up with Hiroyuki-san the second time for a tour in Kyoto! This time I brought my 2 bosses along and they were very impressed with his knowledge and explaination. He also considered our request for lunch and found a good soba/udon shop. Thank you for also sending us to Osaka from Uji ! I hope to see you again soon!

Stephanie C.

Stephanie, It was very nice meeting you again in Kyoto. I have met a lot of people for my job. You are the first and only person who came back to me. Do not bring your boss next time. I deserve a tour for your own to relax.

There are many temples with beautiful gardens in Kyoto. Gardens are part of religious practice and are divided into two, Pure Land style gardens to image the Pure Land of Buddha where our souls go after death, and Zen style gardens to meditate Zen. This tour is focused on Zen and Pure Land gardens in Kyoto. In addition to these, we will also visit Fushimi Inari Shrine that is very famous for its Torii gates. I also can include other places like Nishiki Market & Gion upon request.
