Hiro was terrific! He was interesting and totally understood our pace and what we were interested in seeing. I highly recommend him. A lovely day and we saw so much.

Hiro is brilliant & I had an absolutely fantastic time with him touring the west side of Tokyo. From the "Champs Elysees" of Tokyo & Takeshita St to Golden-Gai & Shibuya Crossing there is literally nothing Hiro doesn't know. He was endlessly fascinating as an expert on Tokyo, history, culture & as an individual. He also is incredibly thoughtful & spent time w/me highlighting other places to explore in Tokyo while we enjoyed delicious yakitori and beer. It could not have been more perfect. Thank you Hiro!

We had a fabulous afternoon with the competent and friendly Hiro. We had a small window of time and Hiro enabled us to see so many amazing sites, while sharing his knowledge with us. He created a truly memorable Tokyo experience for us. I highly recommend the private guide service. Thank you Hiro. Tracey and Joanne

This tour was a wedding gift for the daughter of friends (and her new husband, of course!). They were thrilled at the idea of having a guide to give them the highlights of Tokyo, and she emailed me mid-way through the tour to say what a fantastic time they were having. Thank you, Hiro!

Hiro is deeply knowledgeable, with a worldly perspective on Japan, historically and currently. Humorous, warm, personable, excellent English. Very efficient! We had a 6.5hr walking tour and he moved things along, so that we could 'cover Tokyo, East and West', as he put it. :) We saw enough and learned to navigate our way, esp by subway, that left us feeling enthusiastic, capable, and ready for more of Tokyo and Japan. Cannot recommend Hiro highly enough!

Great English and excellent Tour guide. Had excellent grasp of history and managed our time and visits well.
Thomas Vavrina-FloresUnited States
Hiro "customized" our 1/2 day tour as we wanted to see more "off the beaten path" parts of Tokyo. It was great to see more non-tourist spots and get a feel of what life is really like in Tokyo. We would highly recommend his services.
Richard KrausUnited States
We did 2 tours with Hiro on successive days and both were very informative and fun. See my earlier post.

Hiro is a fantastic tour guide for Tokyo. He was very flexible and immediately understood our preferences for things to see and adjusted our itinerary accordingly. Hiro has a deep knowledge of Japanese history and makes it highly interesting by comparing and contrasting it to other cultures politically, organizationally and otherwise. Hiro is also very personable and ideally suited for US visitors like us, as he has spent a great deal of time in our country. Five enthusiastic stars for sure.
Hiro was a very pleasant and charming guide and easily guided us to familiarity with Tokyo in a 6 hour period. We would highly recommend him to friends visiting Tokyo.

Wow!!! The rest of the reviews are true - Hiro is really amazing. Typically we have used other agencies (at a higher cost) but wanted to try tours by locals due to a recommendation to use Hiro in Tokyo. We are so glad that we did. Hiro was fantastic - our intro to Tokyo was very informative and fun and covered a lot of ground. We managed to do it all in the 4 hours east and west Tokyo. Hiro provided us with lots of good tips for the rest of our stay. THANK YOU for an awesome time.
Teresa ThornbergUnited States
Hiro was very knowledgeable about Japanese history and culture and enjoyable to spend the day with! He accommodated my requests on our day together and helped me plan for how to navigate the city when he left. His English skills were impeccable. I would highly recommend Hiro!
Michael LoboUnited States

Hiro met us on time at our set location and showed us so much that left us in awe and we couldn't be happier. From the subway system to historical landmarks he was brilliant throughout it all! I would recommend meeting him on the first day of being in Tokyo to get an idea of how to get around Japan and where to go for the rest of your trip. Thank you, Hiro!

Hiro was an excellent guide during our recent family trip to Tokyo. We scheduled him for 2 consecutive days and he created an itinerary based on our wants, and supplemented with other interesting sights that we loved. He was attentive to our needs and offered great suggestions for our first trip to Tokyo. We highly recommend using him if you want a guide knowledgeable about the history and sights of Tokyo. We enjoyed our tour immensely.

Hiro did a great job of showing us Tokyo in 2 days. He was flexible to the things we wanted to see and gave us very good historical background that helped us understand better. He showed us the sights and also gave us our personal space during resting and lunch time. We would recommend him very much for people that have limited time but want to cover a lot.
Thomas FlinnOld Orchard Beach, ME., United States
Our guide, Hiro was simply excellent. He guided us around Tokyo for two full days. At the end of the tour my wife and I came away not only seeing many amazing sites, but with the feeling we had a better understanding of Japanese traditions and culture. This was made possible only by the vast knowledge and expertise of our guide, Hiro, Any one coming to Tokyo, I would highly recommend you tour with Hiro. Thomas
Thanks to Hiro, we had a fantastic tour of Tokyo! He was very knowledgeable, very personable, and went out of his way to give us suggestions/recommendations for other places to see after the tour. I highly recommend Hiro.
