Hello, I'm Hideo

Some info may be automatically translated.

As a nationally certified guide and a former TV correspondent, I bring a wealth of experience. My key strengths include my adeptness at gathering information, flexibility in adapting to various situations, and, most importantly, my robust crisis management skills, all honed by years of practical experience. While this guide features some popular destinations, it's just a glimpse of the unique experiences I can offer. I specialize in tailoring tours to your interests and preferences. I also send a weekly newsletter, Japan A to Z, by Substack, packed with valuable tips on visiting Japan. Please take a look. Book Hideo Tanikawa to see *I don't drive for guiding in Tokyo due to the bad traffic situation and time efficiency. *A separate car fee, such as the Fuji Five Lakes Excursion from Tokyo and other locations outside Tokyo, will be applied. Please get in touch if you wish to use a car for guided tours. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
