Hi Horoshi SAN.... you made our day and did more then a guide ??. Thank you so much for the time and your guidance and explanation on our tour and not forgetting the insight you gave us on managing the train, food, tour in Tokyo for the next 4 days.

Back home I will definitely recommend to family and friends on you good hospitality and tour. Once again Arigato tosai masu

HIROSHI:

Thank you very much for your review, Vasanthi-san. We had a tour to Hakone. It was unfortunate we were not able to see Mt. Fuji because it was covered by clouds although the weather was fine. But I am relieved to know that you enjoyed the tour. At Owakudani we bought black eggs. We didn't have time eat them there, but I hope you enjoyed eating them in Shinkansen or Kyoto. I am sure your life has been extended! We parted at Odawara Station. I am also relieved to know you arrived in Kyoto safely. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan, and look forward to seeing you again in Japan or Malaysia! Hiroshi

“ Excellent guide! ”

Hiroshi-san is sincerly an excellent guide-a lot of knowlige,pleasent,helpful in any situation and helpd us to enjoy 3 wonderful days.

HIROSHI:

Thank you very much for the review. On the first day we enjoyed hiking on Mt. Takao. Red and yellow leaves were very beautiful. On the second day we went to Yakohama and Kamakura. It was a lovely day, and we were able to see a bride and bridegroom in kimono. On the last day it was unfortunate we had rain. We had to change our plan, but we learned a lot about the history and the way of life of the people in Edo period at Edo Tokyo Museum. And Planets Tokyo was a fantastic experience. At the next time to come to Japan I would be very happy if you choose me again. Japan has a lot of places to visit. Let's enjoy Japan together again!

“ Hakone tour with Hiroshi ”

Hiroshi guided my wife and I through a one day tour of the Hakone area. We communicated back and forth multiple times ahead of the trip as Hiroshi helped us work out an itinerary. He was very helpful with suggestions and working around some issues of closed areas due to the recent typhoon. Hiroshi also worked with us organizing the logistics of a morning arrival to Odawara by train, getting bulky luggage dropped at our hotel, and still managing a full day. We had an excellent day touring with Hiroshi.

HIROSHI:

Thank you very much for your review. I am happy to know that you enjoyed the tour in Hakone. But it was unfortunate we were not able to walk around Owakudani area although we were able to see Owakudani from a ropeway. We took a boat cruise on Lake Ashi and visited the old Hakone Checkpoint. We learned a lot about a checkpoint in Edo period. Hakone has a lot of nice places to visit besides the places we visited. So if you have a chance to come to Japan in the future, let's enjoy Hakone again. I am looking forward to seeing you again in Japan.

“ Very informative and relaxing experience ”

Hiroshi is very knowledgeable and very considerate and kind. He was happy to explain Japanese customs and answered all questions regarding history in customs of Japan. The day was well planned out and and we were not rushed to maintain the schedule. Our lunch at Tsukiji market excellent!!!!!! Highly recommend Hiroshi for your next adventure.

HIROSHI:

Thank you very much for your review. Although at first we were planning to go to Hakone, I am sorry we were not able to visit Hakone because of the damage by the typhoon. But I am happy to know that you enjoyed the tour in Tokyo. We visited Meiji-jingu Shrine, Tsukiji, Asakusa, etc. We saw Shichi-go-san ceremony, an annual event which celebrates growth of children, and Japanese traditional wedding at Meiji-jingu Shrine. We also visited Yanaka and felt the atmosphere of the old shopping street after the war. I hope we can get together again and visit Hakone in the near future.

“ Amazing tour guide ”

From the moment we reached out to Hiroshi, he was very timely and helpful with getting back to us. He organised the tour to suit our preferences in detail and made the tour for my parents very enjoyable. He looked out for their best interest such as keeping costs in travel down where possible. Would highly recommend Hiroshi. Thank you for taking care of my parents so well !

HIROSHI:

Thank you very much for your review. We visited Meiji-jingu Shrine and enjoyed the holy atmosphere early in the morning. At Tsukiji we enjoyed fish at lunch and tasted good coffee nearby. I am glad to hear your parents enjoyed the tour, and hope our next tour also will be enjoyable. Hiroshi

“ Very caring and sincere guide ”

Hiroshi san took me to all places as planned. He took care of all my needs and was very nice . He infact helped me buy a nice toy for my son. Showed me shibuya, sensoji, Odaiba and Shinjuku. Nothing was too much for him and he accommodated all my requests

HIROSHI:

Thank you for your review. I hope you enjoyed the two Tokyo night tours. On the first day we had a nice weather. We were able to see a beautiful night view of Tokyo from Tokyo Skytree. Sensoji Temple was beautifully lit up. But on the second day we had a little rain. If it had not rained, we could have seen a nicer night view from Odaiba. I hope we can get together again in a beautiful cherry blossom season! Hiroshi

“ Kamakura whole day tour ”

I can highly recommend Hiroshi-san as a tour guide. He organized a perfect day long tour of Kamakura for me and was very willing to be flexible with the itinerary. He was very knowledgeable about the area and local history and made the day very enjoyable.

HIROSHI:

Thank you very much for your review. As you were interested in Buddhism, we experienced a Zen meditation in the morning at Engakuji Temple. I am very happy if it was a good experience for you. After the meditation, we visited other temples and shrines, and enjoyed matcha tea, delicious lunch, etc. If you have a chance to come to Japan again, let's explore Japan together. Nikko has old temples and shrines, and Hakone has beautiful scenery. In addition, spring is the best season to visit Japan because the cherry blossoms are so beautiful. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future! Hiroshi

“ Tour of Kamakura with Hiroshi ”

Hiroshi is an excellent guide. He arrived on time at our hotel, provided information that placed the subject of the tour in context, conscientiously guided the tour - carefully checking to see if we wished to stop and spend more time at a given location before moving to another and overall our condition to see if we needed a break to rest or take water or food, provided information that helped us understand what we were seeing at each location on the tour, and brought us back to our hotel safely on time. His command of English is excellent. And he has a great sense of humor. Bravo!

HIROSHI:

Thank you very much for your review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed our tour. We enjoyed matcha tea and the peaceful bamboo forest. We were lucky to see the Japanese traditional wedding. You were surprised at the Great Buddha and wooden Kannon statue with eleven faces. I also had a great time with you during the tour. I learned a lot about a sense of humor from you, and will further improve it until we meet next time. Thank you very much again and I look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

“ Custom One Day Tour of Nikko ”

Hiroshi extensively prepared for our trip, visiting our hotel in advance to time the walk from the lobby to the correct train platform. Trains were well coordinated with minimal wait time. The order of sites visited made for an efficient use of our time. Hiroshi was very knowledgeable about the temples and shrines we visited and spoke excellent English. He also suggested some places we should see the next day on our own and taught us some basic Japanese.

HIROSHI:

Thank you very much for your review. I am really happy to hear you enjoyed our tour. Nikko is located far north from Tokyo. I was afraid you were tired for the long trip. We enjoyed the spectacular view of Kegon Waterfall, Japanese lunch, old temples and shrines in Nikko. I was surprised you knew very much about Japan. So you might not need me as a guide, but next time you come to Japan please choose me again. I will make a research about your interests. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

“ Three days trip around Tokyo ”

We had wonderful 3 days with Hiroshi . He helped us with transportation , ticket reservations and good advise where and when to go. He was always punctual and helped us meeting challenging schedule every day. He showed great care for us to find stations and boarding the right trains. Very professional guide and flowing with the customers requests.We warmly recommend Hiroshi to everyone that comes to Tokyo and around. Well done Hiroshi San.

HIROSHI:

Daniel-san, Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed our three-day tour in Kamakura, Yokohama, Hakone, and Nikko. In Hakone we were able to see beautiful Mt. Fuji. We were lucky because the weather of the day was not so clear. And you had a "valuable" experience of taking a super packed train in Tokyo! I am looking forward to seeing you again in the future in Japan. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in this country. Hiroshi

“ Great Guide. Amazing Person. The Best Tour Guide out there. ”

Hiroshi is the type of tour guide you wish every city has. Why? He is not only kind, smart, respectful, & caring but he is a genuine person. He is truly motivated to give YOU a great experience. Hiroshi takes pride in his work and it shows with the way he looks after you. You won't regret being picking him.

HIROSHI:

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the tour. I also had a great time with you in Tokyo, Hakone, and Osaka. As you visited Japan at the end and the beginning of the year, everywhere was crowded because it was one of the busiest seasons in this country. The weather in this season was freezing to you. Next time please come in spring or autumn, and let's enjoy beautiful cheery blossoms or red and yellow leaves. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Hiroshi

“ A Customized Day Tour ”

Our day started with Hiroshi meeting us at our hotel. He was prompt at our meeting time. His explanation of our customized tour was very good as well as handing us a map of the noted tour sites. His grasp of the English language was very good. During the tour, Hiroshi was very accommodating to little changes in our tour schedule. His knowledge of the Tokyo transit system proved very important/efficient as we moved about the city. We would have struggled to stay on schedule ourselves if we didn't have that knowledge. He asked us if there was anything specific we wanted to purchase along the way, he planned ahead and adjusted during the tour to meet our purchasing goals. HIroshi also had ideas to make the tour cost efficient. The day concluded with Hiroshi dropping us back at our hotel. Plea... read more

HIROSHI:

Thank you for your review. I am so happy to hear you had a good time in our tour and enjoyed Japanese cuisine such as sushi and ramen. At this time you "enjoyed" extraordinary and abnormally hot weather in Japan. I hope next time you enjoy Japanese comfortable and beautiful weather in spring or autumn. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the future. Let's enjoy a trip in Japan again together. Hiroshi
