A very pleasant, balanced and informative overview of some of Tokyo's main districts. Hiro offered plenty of room for customisation and discussion of the itinerary, flexibility and the time to explore as we felt fit, an interesting narrative, and the ability to discuss what we were seeing in a way that we could not possibly have hoped to replicate on our own. His English is impeccable. Now we can revisit some of our favourite spots. Thank you Hiro!

Hirohisa is excellent! Great communication before our tour to determine our areas of interest. He expertly addressed our interests in exploring the history and culture of Japan and Tokyo. He suggested a subway day pass that allowed us to travel easily between sites in air-conditioned comfort during a heat wave. Hirohisa's English is excellent and it was truly our pleasure to spend the day with him. Book your tour now, if he is available!

I gave a detailed description of our half-day tour with Hiro. We spent a total of a day and a half with him, which was a pleasure. We saw every major sight in Tokyo and had a great time. I would highly recommend touring with him. His English and knowledge of Tokyo is excellent.

There is no better way to see a new city and get a flavor of its population than to ride the subway. Hiro recommended a one day ticket and we've gotten our "yens" worth. Hiro is a knowledgeable guide who passes on his love of country through history, politics, dynasty and every day life. So glad he's leading us through the city.

Hiro is the most amazing guide we have ever had on Toursbylocals! He spent 3 days with us and literally showed us all that Tokyo has to offer. He made very good use of our time and really knows how to navigate the city. We also visited the KamaKura area with him. He is very fluent in English and incredibly knowledgable about the history of Japan, the shrines and the temples. He was so great with my wife and 3 children as we navigated the Tokyo subway and train system! My wife says he looks like a GQ model

Hiro-San was an excellent tour guide. He customized the tour for us, and we were able to see many things in our short 6 hour day. It was the perfect way to start our visit to Japan (keeping busy certainly helped us push through the jet lag!) Even though the Tsukiji fish market was closed, we were still able to visit the many shops surrounding the market and had an amazing lunch in a small restaurant.

Hiro was fantastic! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. Hiro speaks English perfectly, was highly insightful regarding the historical and cultural significance of the sights we visited. He was efficient, but we never felt rushed and were able to cover all of the items on our agenda during our 6 hour tour. We would highly recommend Hiro as a tour guide! Thank you!

Hiro was our best tour guide in all of Japan. I can't say enough great things about Hiro. Not only is he passionate about the culture and people of his country, but he has a deep knowledge on everything about Japan and is incredibly efficient and detail oriented. Do yourself a favor and hire him if you want a 1-day or multi-day tour....HE IS THE BEST!

Saw a lot of Tokyo in a short period of time. Learned how to work the subway and train systems. Without his valuable knowledge we would have been at a lost on how to get around. Hiro is extremely knowledgeable,patient and gracious. Excellent English. My husband, son and I would highly recommend his services.

This was a great way to see the sites we wanted to see in the amount of time we had. Hirohisa did a great job of providing us with the background of the various sites we visited. His English was much better than we expected. He was very easy to understand. Overall we were very happy with this tour and would recommend it to others.

We enjoyed an excellent introductory walking tour of Tokyo with Hiro. Prior to arrival we communicated by email and he planned an itinerary taking account of our interests and circumstances. He arrived early to meet us in our hotel lobby and finished the tour at the appointed time. He speaks excellent English, is well informed and conducted the tour with humour and professionalism.

We were thankful for Hiro's thoughtfulness in keeping the pace slow as the day was extremely hot. Hiro explained the rail system each time we went to a new line and also amended the tour to suit our particular interests. We really loved seeing the fish market. A little more history about history and culture would have been great.

Amazing! Hiro was so genuine and accommodating! He truly knows the history and current issues within the Japanese society which makes this tour all the better. We saw so much in a such a little time and never felt rushed. We still had time to take pictures and walk around. Even time for breakfast at Tsukiji! His English is better than advanced...definitely fluent. Very easy to understand and answer questions. Can't say enough good things about Hiro and this tour! You will regret if you don't book it!

Hiro is an informed and effective guide for Tokyo. He knows his city well, and he is also versed in culture, politics, and life in general in this vast city. We peppered him with questions throughout our time together and he never was failed to give an engaging answer! We happened upon a festival which was not planned but he was able to fill us in on the specifics--we got so much more from that experience than we might have otherwise. I highly recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer Thanks your great comments and rating!! It was my great pleasure guiding the wonderful clients like yourselves. Thanks again.

Hiro is a fantastic tour guide, and I can't recommend him enough. He's incredibly well-read, knowledgeable, sharp, and funny/charming to boot. He naturally made me feel at ease, and he was a complete gentleman. If you're interested in history, politics, culture, economics, and other intellectual matters, he's the perfect guide for you.
