Our tour with Hide was great. It was our first full day in Tokyo and he helped orient us, taught us how to use the subway system and took us to see the pop culture areas of the city. He was right on time to start the tour, and was interesting and fun to talk to. He also found a great local place for lunch. I would strongly recommend Hide to anyone coming to Tokyo, he is a great guide!

The guide has introduced me more anime places in Tokyo will definitely travel with him again. He is quite knowledgeable and will recommend those tourists who are Otaku fans to travel with him. I really enjoy myself very much with him.

We had an amazing tour with Hide! He was informative, funny and spoke perfect English. My two teens enjoyed his company as much as my husband and I. We would highly recommend his services to anyone visiting Japan!

We had an amazing Tokyo Pop Culture Tour with Hide. We did a lot! - we toured the Akihabara , the "anime enthusiasts' paradise" of the world; shopped at the Yellow Submarine and other Gundam shops on different floors in one of building there; went to Aki-oka Artisan shops in Ueno; we had fun in a Maid Cafe; had delicious lunch in the Crossfield eateries; went people watching at Takeshita; witnessed the "big scramble" while at Starbucks at Shibuya Crossing; shopped at Loft. Our teenage sons loved Hide!

Hide walked us all over the modern parts of Tokyo yesterday. He took us to so many busy and exciting places. Hide's explainations are interesting and detailed. We learned about culture and traditions of the Japanese people. Hide's English is excellent. He provided us with a bit more rest time today due to the heat We relaxed at Shinjuku gardens and enjoyed the beautiful Japanese Gardens there. I would highly recommend Hide as your personal guid e in Tokyo!!

Hidefumi met us at the hotel promptly, and showed us everything we wanted in the time frame. It would have been very difficult to see to much by ourselves. He accommodated everything my two girls requested, even though they were not really on the map for the day.Would thoroughly recommend.

Hide was personable, knowledgeable, considerate and efficient. He made recommendations for another areas to visit, helped make dinner reservations and located a cinema for my entertainment. I had a wonderful day learning about the Japanese Pop Culture and the Electric District. I would highly recommend Hide to any traveler.

If you are having doubts about booking a tour with Hide, don't. My tour with Hide was a pleasure. His English is excellent and he is very knowledgeable, friendly and reliable. The tour I booked was a walking tour, Hide was very kind and ask me several time if I wanted to stop for a break. He is also very flexible with tour adjustments, and he certainly knows his way around the trains and subway systems.

Great tour with a great guide. Took us all over Tokyo's pop-culture districts including Akihabara and Harajuku, as well as some interesting side streets. Hide was extremely polite, helpful and open to conversation. A very enjoyable tour and one that I highly recommend. The 7.5 hours flew by.

Hide is great! He always reply to my questions quickly before we took our trip. He is always on time, flexible, and extremely helpful. We booked 2 separate tours with him and we had a wonderful experience. Highly recommended tour guide.

Hide has the best job in the world guiding tourists through the pop culture of Japan which is not to be found anywhere else in the world. You don't need to be a child to love this part of Japan. Hide has the knowledge, English-skills and personality to guide you anywhere you want to go in Tokyo. He can also think "outside the box" and take you to "hidden" Tokyo sights.

Hide is a wonderful, very knowledgeable guide who took me to the places that I was interested the most. In addition to that, he helped me find my way around Tokyo's public transit network and found the right SIM card for my mobile phone. He is a great guy who is fluent in English. I can recommend this tour wholeheartedly to anyone.

Hide was very patient with us and was flexible with the itinerary of the tour. He took us to some shops during the Pop Culture tour that we wouldn't have been able to find by ourselves. All-in-all a good way to spend a day in Tokyo if you've already seen the usual temples and sights.

My family enjoyed the Pop Culture tour with Hide. He was a kind and patient guide and with three older daughters who love to look and shop that was essential! Our favorite stop was a huge comic book store that they spent close to an hour in and Harajuku was a shopping paradise! They also loved the Maid Cafe that Hide took us too. What an interesting experience that was! We had a wonderful sushi lunch at a restaurant Hide located for us and he was flexible with his itinerary based on what we wanted to see.

We had a recent Pop Culture walking tour with Hide. He is a fantastic guide with fluent English. We travel with 2 young kids, 4 and 9. And Hide is very accommodating, adjusting the tour and the pace. Our kids had great fun, did a lot of shopping at Akihabara, Pokemon center, Nakano Broadway, etc. Hide is extremely patient and knowledgeable. He took very good care of our whole family, even getting us back on the hotel shuttle. We highly recommend him, and will definitely like to go on his tour again

We can't thank Hide enough for yesterday! What a great day on the pop culture tour. Hide not only took us to so many great places he also helped us set up our JR passes and schedule a bullet train for later in the week. Hide explained Japanese customs and culture as we roamed around the city. My 15 year old son loved it all. If you have a chance to do this tour with hide don't think twice just do it! Thank you again Hide for a great day!!!

Interesting tour of aspects of Tokyo. Hidefumi was very adaptable and varied the places we visited according to my interests. He is a very able conversationalist in english and we talked about lots of aspects of Japanese society which I rely appreciated. Strongly recommended

This tour was super fun. Take Hide's recommendation on going to the maid cafe in Akihabara. At first I wasn't sure, but the whole experience made me smile.

We took the Pop Culture tour on July 1st. Hide was a fabulous guide! He spoke wonderful English and gave us a great sense of the different pop culture centers in Tokyo, including Akihabara. We were amazed by the variety of figurines in the collectible stores, and we really enjoyed the manga and cosplay stores, too. The best part was definitely our visit to a maid cafe (there is absolutely nothing like it). Hide was very flexible on the schedule, allowed us moments to rest, and gave us lots of information.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating. I had a very good time with you. If you'd ever have a chance to come back to Japan, I'm pleased to guide you anytime.
