Shiga Tour Guide - Koichi W.

Koichi W.

4.94 / 5
(49 reviews)
Japan

Hi! I'm Koichi. I was born in Osaka, I studied in Kyoto when I was a university student. Now I live in Shiga next to Kyoto. I am a national government licensed tour guide. I have been guiding about 160 groups over the past twelve months. I usually guide my customers mainly in Kansai region including Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Kobe and Shiga by public transportation systems. Well, I am curious about Japanese history, especially the history of Japan's ancient times since I was raised next to the world biggest mausoleum of the ancient Emperor called "Nintoku" in Sakai city Osaka which has just become one of the world cultural heritage sites. I dug out some ancient earthen ware vessels around there when I was a primary school student like the adventure archaeologist “Indiana Jones" (It’s our secret!!). That was my hobby. Now, one of my hobbies is outdoor activities such as mountaineering, kayaking, skiing and others. So I would like to take you to some good places where you can enjoy Japanese unique nature. I love to guide foreign visitors from all over the world. I think it is my calling or heavenly given job. Let's go and enjoy together! I hope to see you soon.                                                                                                                                 

Fukuoka Tour Guide - Kazue I.

(15 reviews)
Japan

Hi! I am Kazue. I am from Fukuoka and live in the central city. I spent almost 20 years traveling around the world as a cabin attendant. Meeting different people, different cultures and eating local food were best things in my career. This experience definitely widened my perspective and will help me in some way when I work as a guide. Since I spent half my life outside of Japan, I noticed our culture and traditions are very unique and became more interested in historical sites in Japan. For my personal life, I am a mom of twins. It is still a hard work but I am enjoying a lot with them. We take them around Kyushu whenever possible for their fun and experience. We all love traveling after all. I am looking forward to showing you around our hometown soon!

Osaka

Kuromon Market is the kitchen of Osaka. Most of the market staff are Japanese. Also, the variety of foodstuffs is numerous! Japanese people feel a language barrier, and I will solve that problem. When I have been to foreign countries, I have not been able to eat what I wanted to eat because of the language barrier. Traveling should be fun first and foremost. I will also guide you through the wonderful culture of Kuromon Market with its stories. Have the best 3 hours with me!

KYOTO - A Tailor-Made experience for you

Kyoto

Brilliant guide!

Mari is the perfect guide to discover the magic of Kyoto! On two extensive half-day-tours she took us to see landmarks such as the Bamboo Forest, Fushimi Inari Shrine and Yasaka Pagoda as well as some enchanted places off the beaten track and the tourist crowds. She is extremely knowledgeable, attentive, kind and fun to be with. We had a lovely time exploring the city with her and getting a feel of it through special treats such as a tram ride, lunch in an excellent ramen restaurant or a peek into a lovely private garden. Thank you, Mari, for a delightful and memorable experience!

Siv B.

Hi Siv!! Thank you so much for sharing the great time with me too. :) The both dates were indeed excellent. I enjoyed the talks with you both, it was memorable time for me too. Thank you soooo much again! Vielen Dank! Alles Gute! :)
