Hiroko K.

Kishiwada, Osaka, Japan

Hi, I'm Hiroko. Thank you very much for choosing my tour.

I've been working as a licensed guide/interpreter since 2008. I guide mainly for private or small groups (6 travelers) for Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Koyasan, Himeji, Hiroshima(including Miyajima), Adachi Museum of Art, Naoshima and Teshima islands .
You can see not only the famous sightseeing spots but not often shown in the guide book.
I'm personally interested in the architecture. If you have the same preferences, please let me know. Let's explore the local towns with me!

If you have a preference, feel free to ask me before finalizing the tour.
Please pass me your travel information below:
1. your hotel location and name(except for Airbnb houses and apartments),
2. have a rail pass or not,
Let me guide you with hospitality.

-IMPORTANT-
Airbnb houses and apartments have not officially permitted accommodation in Japan. I'm a national licensed guide. As long as they're not licensed, I cannot accept travelers will stay there. If you'll stay there, please find another guide. Thank you.

A Recent Review of this guide

Hiroko was super helpful and taught us a lot about all the different sites we went to see. She was really nice to the kids and helped us have a wonderful wonderful day. We would highly recommend her to any family with children!
