We just completed a lovely tour this morning in Tokyo with Hiro. He was very gracious and informative and gave us a good overview for first time visit. He is a gentleman and great representative of his homeland!

We enjoyed Hirohisa very much. His English was perfect, he has an excellent knowledge of historical Japan and was very helpful to us during our stay in Tokyo. He thought of ideas for us to do even on days we were not with him. We highly recommend him.

My 18-year old son and I spent a day and a half with Hiro and had a great time. We saw every major sight and neighborhood in Tokyo and learned our way around the city and subway/train system. Hiro is very knowledgeable about Tokyo history and contemporary culture. His English is excellent and it was a pleasure to spend the time with him. He was also flexible and creative in coming up with good indoor options when a big rainstorm threatened to swamp our tour.

We had an enjoyable tour with Hiro, who showed us a nice variety of sights in Tokyo. We covered several distinct parts of the city, and had some nice conversations about Japanese history and modern day issues.

Due to some unforeseen issues, ship docking in an unusual location and lack of wifi access by myself, the initial appointment could have become impossible. The guide, Hirohisa, took independent action and resolved a very difficult situation. Special appreciation is extended to him.

We have just had the pleasure of having Hirohisa take us on a half day tour of Tokyo. He speaks and understands English perfectly and was very knowledgeable in all the sights he took us to. He offered us a locals insight in to Tokyo, not only seeing the main attractions but showing us a locals life. He showed us more in four hours than we would ever see by ourselves in four days. We would highly recommend Hiro's tours and we will certainly book him again in the future. Thanks so much for a great day

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 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.
