About Tour Guide Hiroshi S.

Hello, I'm Hiroshi.

I am a National Government Licensed Tour Guide Interpreter in English. I have got a master's degree in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the U.S.

I have been living in a city of Fujisawa, which is the city next to Kamakura, for more than 20 years, and also lived in Kamakura for more than 10 years. So far, I have visited almost all the temples and shrines in Kamakura. So I am sure I can offer you a pleasant trip to the historical city, Kamakura.

In addition to Kamakura, I can also guide Tokyo, Yokohama, Hakone, Nikko, etc. because I have visited many places in Kanto area. For example, in Tokyo I can show you around the sightseeing spots such as Asakusa, Tsukiji, Imperial Palace, Meiji Shrine, Tokyo Skytree, etc.

I like baseball and used to play baseball, but now enjoy watching professional baseball games. And I like watching Rakugo, Japanese traditional story-telling performance.

Of course, I also like travelling very much, and am interested in Japanese culture and history. So I would like to show you Japanese tradition and culture.

Let’s enjoy a trip in Japan together.

I am looking forward to seeing you soon.

Hiroshi S. Japan Tour Reviews

Hakone Tour!

Hiroshi-san has been really helpful from the get go. He is really knowledgable about the area, and have a lot of suggestions on how to make the day of the trip flow better. He helps in planning the trip, and made sure that the day of the trip progressing smoothly! Would recommend Hiroshi-san to anyone who comes to Hakone!

Laura A.

Thank you for your review to the tour in Hakone. I am very happy to hear our tour was enjoyable. We ate black eggs at Owakudani. I am sure we got a life expectancy of seven more years:-) In addition to Hakone, I can guide you in Nikko, Yokohama, Kamakura, central Tokyo, and so on. I would be very happy to meet you again somewhere other than Hakone!

An amazing tour with a great guide

We had a full day tour of Nikko with Hiroshi. He met us at our Tokyo hotel and helped us travel on the subway to our express train from Tokyo to Nikko. Nikko was an amazing place to visit and made more special by Hiroshi’s knowledge explaining all of the details of the places we were visiting. We plan to book another tour with Hiroshi on our next trip to Japan.

Michael D.

Thank you for your review of the tour to Nikko. I also had a great time with you. Nikko is a small town but the sacred place of Buddhism and Shinto. We could feel the atmosphere of both Buddhism and Shinto. Nikko is also famous for its beautiful nature, especially beautiful red and yellow leaves in autumn. I look forward to seeing you again in the beautiful season in Japan!

Amazing Tour of the Natural Wonders of Hakone

Hiroshi met us at our hotel, helped us navigate our trip from Tokyo to Hakone station and showed us multiple sights in Hakone-machi. We took the cable car up to see the natural beauty of Owakudani volcanic valley and the Ropeway to view Mt. Fuji and eat Black Eggs. We enjoyed the pirate ship on Lake Ashi and the lakeside torii gate and shrine. Hiroshi was very kind and gave us a great full day tour.

Suzanne W.

Thank you very much for your review of the Hakone tour. Hakone was very crowded since it was Saturday. But I am happy to hear you enjoyed natural beauty in Hakone. We saw very beautiful Mt. Fuji, ate Black Eggs, and enjoyed the boat cruise on Lake Ashi. I believe that both of you have increased your life expectancy by more than 10 years because you ate one and a half Black Eggs! I look forward to seeing you again in Japan in the future. Thank you. Hitoshi
