Hiro is a very knowledgeable guide with a keen understanding of Japanese history,Shintoism, Buddhism,commerce & world affairs plus a passion for teaching. His English is flawless. I highly recommend him. I would also like to acknowledge Adam, Tour Connection Specialist, who was immensely helpful,patient & kind as he efficiently helped me to reschedule at the last minute. His coordination with the Guides made everything run smoothly. I am excited to discover "Tours by Locals"; will definitely use again!!

Amazing tour guide! I would highly recommended Hiro to anyone thinking about visiting Tokyo. His guided walking/metro tour gave us an opportunity to see all the major landmarks and gain comfortability in circumventing the metro system. Throughout the tour Hiro provided us with amazing historical and cultural information allowing us to have more insight into each place we visited. Thank you Hiro for an amazing afternoon.
Hiro was wonderful. A professional. Highly recommended.

Excellent tour by Hirohisa. I appreciated his pre-tour communications, his prompt arrival at our meeting point in our hotel lobby, and his willingness to modify the tour to best meet our needs.
Hiro was a fantastic guide. His English was excellent. He was easy to communicate with pre- tour and even helped me understand booking for Shinkansen when we were in Australia.He was a great guide in Tokyo - very patient teaching us how to use subway, and he was most flexible with our half day itinerary so that we could stay longer at places of interest for us. He also guided us through the busy Tsukiji Fish market and recommended some great places to buy food. Would highly recommend this gentleman!

I highly recommend Hirohisa - you can be assured that his knowledge of the area and of the transportation system will make your tour go smoothly. I wanted to see three specific places and he planned the 1/2 day tour perfectly. He is easy to talk with and you will feel your time has been well-spent.

Hiro was an excellent guide. He planned our 1/2 tour of Tokyo to the minute. Great tour through the fish market....an out of the way tea ceremony and the Meiji Shrine.
Flexible, knowledgeable of details and history, very good English. We could not see and do as much by ourselves. Thank you.
