“ 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.


Dear Stew Welcome back to Canada and thank you very much for your kind review for me!! You are the elegant and kind person.I also learned something from you and could spend very nice time with you.I love your beautiful paintings ( I checked your site! ).I hope to see them at your art gallery some day! Please stay healthy and have a nice days! Hiromi

“ From the port of Osaka Kyoto ”

İt was a revealing and nice tour with Hiromi. With the train we saw also the public transportation of Japan and the beautiful shrines. All the tour was informative and we learned a bit of japanese tradition and history. We enjoyed the traditional restaurant and the whole trip. Thank you Hiromi !


Dear Deniz Thank you very much for your review! I am impressed that you did not forget me and review for me after your long cruise ship tour! I already noticed that you and your friends are very nice people when I met you at port.I enjoyed sharing time with you.The most memorial moment of that trip for me was "Strawberry tasting in the train!".A man in the train suddenly give your group packed strawberry.I asked him why.He answered that you looked nice people and he liked turkey. It was nice tour thanks of your cooperation. I am looking forward to see you some day, Please say hi to all for me. Thank you Deniz san! Hiromi
