We had a fantastic day with Hide and saw old and new Tokyo. Our two older sons asked many questions and commented at the end how much they enjoyed the tour because they learnt so much. Highly recommend. Thank you Hide for a great day.

Hide was an excellent tour guide. We did a full day tour of Tokyo and he brought us to several popular sites in addition to a number of interesting places we would not have known about otherwise. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend booking a tour with Hide!

This is a continuation of our time with Hide and is the 2nd day we spent with him. This was a little more leisurely of a day yet still visiting the major highlights. We went to Tsukiji Fish Market (Tsukiji outer market) and then the Tokyo Skytree (tallest building in the world). Next we visited Harajuku to do a little window shopping and taking in the unique sights. Lastly, we ended at Shibuya to watch the famous crossing. Unfortunately, we were a little early in the afternoon so it wasn't crazy busy

We booked Hide for two days, allowing us to see so much that Tokyo has to offer. The first day we spent visiting the older sites of Tokyo. We spent time at Asakusa: Old Sensoji temple, Ueno Park, Akihabara, Imperial Palace & the East Garden, then off to Yanaka which is an older residential neighborhood and quite charming. Lastly we ended in Ginza (high-end shopping street) and did a little shopping. Hide keeps the tour moving at a good pace and made sure we stayed on time without feeling rushed.

Hidefumi was and very charming and wonderful guide. We was prompt, courteous and had a great knowledge of the history of Tokyo. He gave us a very insightful tour and managed to keep all of us rounded up in some very busy areas! Thanks for a great time!

We were fortunate enough to have Hide as our guide in Tokyo for two days, and our family really enjoyed his depth of knowledge. He was able to show us so many different sites in such an efficient manner, but was also great at accommodating activities we came across and wanted to try/explore further. Hide was exceptionally professional and friendly, and we would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a guide in Tokyo.

This was the first of two full day tours with Hide. He was the perfect guide: very knowledgable about history, religion and culture. His English is excellent. We recommend him wholeheartedly.

Thank you Hide for showing us Tokyo like a local! The city can be incredibly overwhelming but thanks to Hide we were able to confidently navigate Tokyo on our own after his tour. He catered the tour to our preferences and made sure that our 3 kids (17, 15, 13) were able to see sites that interested them. We would highly recommend his tour to family and friends! Hope to see you again Hide!!

Hidefumi was an absolute pleasure. He was flexible and catered his tour to our preferences, was fun, was knowledgeable, and was enthusiastic. We had a blast just getting to know him during our tour today. Additionally, he was able to provide incredible knowledge both about the sites and areas we were visiting and about Japan (and Japanese history). We cannot speak highly enough of Hidefumi and would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone visiting Tokyo.

We can't say enough good things about Hide. We were very tired and hungry when we met him, we really were not "up" for what this tour was supposed to be (Evening Walking tour). Hide regrouped quickly and was able to find a wonderful place to eat that was not overly busy (every place was busy because of Golden Week). He listened to our request and was able to fulfill our needs perfectly. We highly recommend Hide, he is excellent.
