Mike Masaki Hira - Private Guide in Kyoto
Meeting with people is a gift from God.
A new encounter inspires me and enriches my heart.
People sometimes ask me unexpected questions I can't answer on the spot.
So new encounters are like an adventurous journey.
I am a licensed tour guide with 4 years of experience in Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. Over the years I've guided 200 solo or group tourists from various parts from abroad, including US, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, UK. Belgium, Germany, , France, Spain, Italy, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, India.
Japan has various 'Must to See and Experience'
but Kyoto, Nara and Osaka are especially popular because of their abundance in history, culture, natural beauty and delicious food.
You can enjoy going around World Heritage sites or experiencing agriculture at Off-the Beaten local areas.
Various types of tours are available according to your inquiry or request.
Anniversary or family tour, travel between friends, business trip, or experience tour.
I offer any advise, suggestion or necessary information to make your tour smooth and memorable, helping you arrange your itineraries in Japan.
Please feel free to ask me.
I was a senior high school teacher for 35 years.
I know Japanese history, culture, religion and food very well.
I will be happy to share my knowledge with you.
