We were a group of six who had a wonderful day experiencing the traditions and history of Koyasan. Hiroko always communicated promptly and friendly leading up to our day tour. 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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for giving me many stars and comments! That day was so special even though I remember it now. I hope we’ll meet again. Take care of yourselves and enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan! Warm regards, Hiroko

My friends and I could not have experienced Koyasan without this tour! Hiroko was wonderful!! She catered the tour to what we were interested in and was a delight to spend the day with. I highly recommend her and would definitely go on another tour with her upon a future visit to Japan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Alina ! I'm impressed you posted the comments after arrived in your country. In Koyasan, we didn't use umbrellas fortunately and approached Kukai more closer. Amazing ! Yes, Japan has everlasting attractinons. Please visit us again. I also hope we'll meet again. Hiroko
Absolutely fantastic! Hiroko was knowledgeable, and helped our family learn about the spiritual and architectural beauty of Koyasan.

Hiroko is extremely knowledgeable about Japan and Koyosan. She was able to find an authentic Buddhist temple and hotel where we were able to listen to the monks chanting their morning prayers. We were also able to eat and to sleep the way the Japanese do. Hiroko taught us a lot about Koyosan, culture and traditions. She had many wonderful stories to tell about the temples and the monks in the area that really made the visit a success. Hiroko is a wonderful tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stanley, thank you very much for giving me such wonderful comments and rates. I'm so happy to have met you as the first guide for your long stay in Japan. We worried about the chance of rain before departing, but the sun came up at last! I wish you'll make a lot of unforgettable memories in Japan and arrive at your home safely. Many thanks, Hiroko

Our family of 6 toured with Hiroko and had a wonderful time visiting Fushimi Inari/ Philosopher's Walk. She was patient when the children is slowed by distractions such as gift shops and kindly push us along in a subtle way to make up for lost time. She is conscientious in wanting to do her best and was very nice. I wouldn't mind more information but it was hard to get all of our attention at once. She took the initiative to show us Kyoto bus system and trained us to take buses on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jacqueline, thank you very much for your comments. I also enjoyed the time with your lovely family. Kyoto has the very efficient bus transportation system, so I could tell you very easily. When you have a chance to visit Kyoto next time, you'll enjoy a lot. Please take care !
