About Tour Guide Tatsuhiro N.

It took me some 20 years to be qualified for this job and I feel honored for being able to help tourists from abroad understand our nation and culture. Japan is a beautiful country with a long history, tradition and rich cultural heritages, having various features in each of the four distinct seasons. Although there are now many visitors from abroad, mainly from Asian countries, they are mostly interested in shopping taking advantage of cheaper yen rather than understanding our people and culture. Kyoto and Nara are the two cities best known by foreign tourists, but not all the aspects of Japanese culture are concentrated there. If you visit the countryside other than these two cities, you will never fail to see the beautiful natural surroundings and people who will warmly welcome you. I wish to work as the bridge between Japanese people and tourists from all over the world.

Amazing and incredible day!

Due to shortage of time we dedicated one day to see some of the major sites in Kyoto. Hiro san was our guide that day and we were so lucky to have met him! He is amazing and has endless amount of energy, full of enthusiasm and knowledge. He took us every where and we had such a fun day! Very impressed by his stamina and eagerness to please. He is just a wonderful man and we wish him all the best!

Hi Renee- & Nadir-san, Thank you so much for your compliment. I really enjoyed the day visiting some of the sights in Kyoto with you under the perfect weather. It was fun listening to you talk about your country and part of your life while we were chatting in the open-air cafe. It was interesting to learn that the U.S. movie "Magnificent Seven" was in fact a copy of Kurosawa`s "Seven Samurai." I wish you a good luck and good health. And the same for Steven-san. Regards, Hiro

Awesome time with tatshuhiro

I want to start off with saying what a great individual tatshuhiro was. So kind and understanding and really put us in first place above anything. He was very knowledgeable and took us to all the best places. He also stayed longer with us to make sure that we saw everything we wanted to see. A+ service. He really went above and beyond. I highly recommend. Thank you again for everything

Hi Matan-san, Thank you very much for your favorable comment. I feel a bit embarrassed for it, though. I am glad, above all that we were able to complete today`s tour safely despite the chilly rain and cold wind. And many thanks for your treat to lunch and snack. I wish you all happiness and good health. Regards, Hiro
