Hiroko was an amazing guide! She expertly guided us through Kyoto via subway, tram and bus. We loved visiting the Fushimi Inari and Heian Jingu shrines in the Eastern area as well as the Arashiyama bamboo forest and Golden Pavilion, located in the West. On top of that we were treated to a kimono fashion show, which we all enjoyed. We highly recommend Hiroko as your tour guide! Hiroko, our family loved spending the day with you! It was a highlight of our visit and filled us with wonderful memories.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, thank you very much for your messages! Yes, I arranged the schedule on the day. I’m very happy you and family members love Kyoto and we made a memorable day. I’m looking forward to meeting you again! Best regards, Hiroko

Hiroko took us to various places of interest in Hiroshima, including little visited places not known to many people. It is this kind of knowledge and familiarity with the areas we visited that made this tour so rewarding and so worthwhile. I highly recommend asking for Hiroko when traveling to Hiroshima.

Date: Jun 18/18

Our trip to Himeji castle was interrupted by the huge earthquake that occurred in Osaka. Hiroko quickly took us to the station to cancel our seats on the Shinkansen and made arrangements to visit the next day when all the trains were up and running again. So our trip was only delayed a day. We appreciated her quick thinking and her assistance. Hiroko took us to Himeji castle and the gardens next to the castle. She provided excellent commentary on both the gardens and the castle.

We are very happy with Hiroko as our guide. She prepared well for our visit; she noted what we had asked for and provided that and much more. Our trip was interrupted by the huge earthquake we experienced, so could not use the Shinkansen as we had planned, but she quickly mapped out a walking tour of Osaka that took us to places we had not known about. She also pointed out many interesting and various restaurants for us to try. I highly recommend using her for any visit to Osaka and Kyoto.

Hiroko was a wonderful guide. She spoke English well, and provided many insightful comments on the various sights she took us to. She waited patiently while we took many stops at stores to shop. She helped us with purchases, explaining what we were buying and intervening when we had questions of the shop keepers. If there was something special we were looking for she kept a sharp lookout for us and helped us find various things we wanted. This was our second time with Hiroko.

Guide was not flexible when we told her about things we wanted to do. She did not give clear directions about where we were to meet and got angry when we could not find her. She did not have much historical knowledge.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cindy-san, thank you for the comment about my tour. Honestly I apologize you my inappropriate attitude on the day. I’m very sorry not to have given the better time.

We had a great day touring Kyoto with Hiroko. Definitely a 5 star day. Hiroko plotted out the most efficient route to all the sights we wanted to see, using all different forms of public transportation. We NEVER could have figured this out on our own. She also took us to a ramen place for lunch that left quite an impression. It was soooo delicious, I'm still thinking about it. Thank you Hiroko for a wonderful day!

She met us at our hotel and returned us safely in the evening. All transport was handled very smoothly, something we wouldn't have been able to do without Hiroko's guidance. Hiroko is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the history and religious traditions of the Buddhist monks. We very much enjoyed our lunch together. Thank you.

Our three days with Hiroko as our guide in Kyoto was like being looked after by a close friend of a relative showing you their home town. Hiroko was wonderful, friendly and very flexible in adjusting the itinerary to our particular interests. She provided a valuable insight into Japan's culture and history. Her time management was impecable, but she often generously provided us with more of her time than was allocated. She has definitely inspired us to want to return to Kyoto.��

Hiroko was so personable and friendly that it made this tour a complete pleasure. From beginning to end, she provided the perfect amount of input. Once she knew that I was a history buff, she allowed me to take my time through the historical elements of the museum and provided commentary that made me confident she was a true professional. We were blessed with beautiful weather, and the picturesque sunset from the observation deck at the Umeda Sky Building made for the perfect way to end the tour.

We also toured with Hiroko for two wonderful days in Kyoto. Hiroko gladly modified the Nara tour to start from our hotel near Kyoto Station, then go to Nara and after Nara we went to Osaka and toured Osaka Castle. She knew exactly how to manage the train connections which gave us a wonderful day, and she got us back on the correct train from Osaka to Kyoto. Hiroko's English is exceptional and her knowledge of history and Japanese culture is very inspiring. We highly recommend Hiroko!

Hiroko met us at our hotel next to Kyoto Station and did an exceptional job of planning our two days of touring sights in Kyoto. Her English is wonderful so our conversations went beyond the history of shrines and temples and logistics matters - we were able to gain insight into Japanese culture and modern lifestyles. With her help we learned how to use the buses, subway, and trains and she recommended our self touring on the weekend to Mt. Kurama, a wonderful day trip. We highly recommend Hiroko.

This was the perfect way to end our 9 day Japan tour. Hiroko was exceptional and was the perfect guide. Mt Kurama is an experience and not a destination. Hiroko made that experience the most memorable one and in life memories are all that matter. I would recommend Tours by Locals highly as it provides an experience and not just a destination. I will definitely use Tours by Locals in the future..... much more value for the time and money.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Punyabrata-san, thank you very much for your comments and lots of starts ! Yes, Mt.Kurama is a very very special place.
