About Tour Guide Masaki H.

Hello I’m Mike, a national licensed tour guide from Kyoto.

Meeting with people is a gift of God for me.

A new encounter inspires and enriches my heart.

People sometimes ask me unexpected questions I can’t answer on the spot.

It is the moment when I I am frozen.

Indeed, guiding people is like a thrilling, adventurous journey.

I would like to offer a memorable journey to you.

I retired from work as a teacher at senior high school and then started this job in 2015.

I’m familiar with Japanese history, culture, religion and architecture.

My guide areas are mainly Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. But as a national tour guide, I guide around Hiroshima, Kanazawa, Nagoya, Wakayama, Shirakawago, and Takayama.

Feel free to ask me anything.

Important

I can guide you in Hiroshima, Okayama, Kagawa, Nagoya and Takayama if you pay my transportation fee.

Masaki H. Japan Tour Reviews

An amazing day with Mike!

Mike was an outstanding tour guide during our visit to Kyoto, blending deep historical and cultural expertise with a warm and engaging approach. He skillfully led us through Kyoto's key palaces and shrines, enriching our experience with fascinating insights and stories. What truly set Mike apart was his ability to make history come alive, catering to everyone's interests and ensuring a memorable journey for all. A highlight of the tour was an incredible local lunch Mike arranged, allowing us to savor authentic Kyoto cuisine in a setting that felt welcoming. This thoughtful touch added another layer to our exploration of Kyoto, seamlessly integrating the local flavors with the cultural and historical exploration. For anyone seeking a comprehensive and engaging tour of Kyoto, Mike is the guide you want by your side. His passion, knowledge, and attention to detail make him an exceptional guide, ensuring your visit to Kyoto will be rich, informative, and incredibly enjoyable.

Vikrant B.

Hi Vik, Thank you for sending me a review. Nothing gives me more energy and stimulation than receiving a review. In Japan, we have a famous phrase, "ichi-go-ichi-e". It means "Once-in-a-lifetime chance." Our encounter may be the first and last. That's why each of us devotes him or herself to each other. This tour with you was really the exact tour of "ichi-go-ichi-e". All the photos with you will remind me of these sweet early-spring experiences. Thank you again.

Very accommodating, friendly guide

Mike is super kind, friendly and accommodating. He was excellent at communicating in advance of the tour. He gave us a very good high level overview of the key Nara sites and answered our myriad questions as best he could. He was energetic and didn’t mind being outside in the cold with us all day! He took many photos to share with us. Thank you, Mike!

Anna B.

Hi Anna, Thank you for your warm review. Your good heart encourages me to move forward. Spending a full day traveling reminds me of my younger days and helps me adjust to the coming new era for younger generations. Whenever I saw photos in the past tours, I missed heartful tours with my clients. Still very cold. Please take care of yourselves. Mike

Our Day In Kyoto

Mike had a wealth of history to share with us on our day in Kyoto! In addition to the sites we requested, he added some hidden gems such as the Seiryōji Temple where we practiced calligraphy. He was also very helpful in creating an itinerary for us for our next day on our own in Hiroshima.

Noah K.

Hi Noah, Thank you for a nice message. I'm glad that you enjoyed Kyoto, spending a whole day with me. Nothing gives me more pleasure than my clients have good experiences. Sweet memories will never die. I hear a terrible storm is hitting your area. Please take care. Mike
