Hiro is an excellent Kyoto tour guide. In addition to explaining the temples, shrines, and the city to us, he was always available to translate written text or spoken Japanese upon request. Our toured events were always running over time, which he helped us manage by prioritizing locations, sights within locations, and even recommending dropping one or two events to allow us to spend more time at other locations. His English is excellent; we highly recommend him to everyone.
