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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathy. Himeji Castle was so amazing even after the earthquake. We could visit both the gardens and the castle, had the experience to make Japanese sweets, very interesting experience! There are many attractive places in Japan. I hope you’ll make another plan to visit Japan and experience anything new. Best, Hiroko

Hiroko is charming and we spent a fun day exploring Himeji Castle and the gardens. When we got back to Kobe she even helped me find a local beauty salon where I was able to get my hair washed and blown out for a very reasonable price. Local knowledge is a wonderful thing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marcy, thank you very much for giving me amazing comments ! I'm very happy to introduce you Himeji on a sunny day. I wish I could meet you also after finishing the local beauty salon. Hope you'll enjoy the rest of your travel ! All the best, Hiroko

Hiroke was a delightful person who was very flexible and kind. She really went out of her way to meet our needs. It was very hot so we decided to skip the gardens go to a history museum which was a delight. She was able to summon two taxis on short notice and even provided me with a restaurant option upon our return to Kyoto.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for high rating for me. It was so delightful day in Himeji. I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. All the best, Hiroko
Our group was very happy with Hiroko's whole day tour. Taking local transportation & being in a small group is so much more enjoyable than being in a huge tour group in bus. We got to see more, learn more & not waste so much time waiting for others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lynn Liu, thank you very much for your comments ! Not only your group but also I enjoyed the tour for Himeji on the wonderful day. I'm very happy to help you arrive and understand destinations. I hope you'll come back to Japan in the near future. Best, Hiroko
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much ! I hope you enjoyed other places in Japan ! Best, Hiroko
