Shiga Tour Guide - Koichi W.

Koichi W.

4.95 / 5
(61 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.

We can go to the top of the Bridge, 300m over the sea, and enjoy the panoramic view from the top! Let’s get together to enjoy real Japan!

Be Kobe Natsuko

From the very first meet, the rapport with Natsuko was instant. A caring n thoughtful guide with good knowledge of the place. Though Japanese, Natsuko spoke very good English too. Though this private tour involved a lot of walking, we kept up with each other well. Natsuko met us at the cruise port, and our first visit was to Chinatown followed by a walking tour of the extensive kobe harbour. Then on to sample some Japanese food at a local Japanese restaurant. A visit to the Ikuta sheine was a good part of the experience too. The last part of the guided tour was taking the ropeway up to the herb Gardens ( very worth the visit). And walked halfway down experiencing various herbs along the way. Our tour ended with a drop of at the Samomiya station. Thru it all, Natsuko's experience n kmowledge shown through. Would highly recommend Natsuko as a guide for the Kobe n Osaka areas. And wouldn't hesitate to use Natsuko again.

Michael M.

From the very first meet at the terminal, I could immediately sense a connection with you and your wife. The tour started with smiles and even the bus ride was enjoyable. Despite the extensive walking from Chinatown to Port Tower and Harborland, it was a delight to admire the beautiful views of Kobe's seaside. I appreciate your interest when I shared the historical background of why Kobe's monument reads BE KOBE instead of KOBE. It was a pleasure to experience the sacred atmosphere together at Ikuta Shrine with eyes closed. The view from Nunobiki Herb Gardens was truly breathtaking. I was genuinely happy to be your tour guide. Thank you! Warm regards, Natsuko

Wonderful tour of Kobe and Kyoto

We had a fabulous day with Natsuko on our recent trip to Japan. She planned the day with us ahead of time to make sure that we had a great experience. She was in constant contact with us from the time of booking and gave us a lot of choices. She met us at the Kobe port and gave us a wonderful walking tour of Kobe. She told us the history of Kobe as we walked. We asked her to choose a Kobe beef restaurant for lunch and she chose a great spot that we enjoyed very much. After lunch, she traveled with us to Kyoto by train and reserved a Kimono experience for the four of us. It was a fabulous day because of her. I addition to being a very nice person, she spoke very good English. We highly recommend her and consider her a friend now. We look forward to seeing her again.

John P.

To John, I am truly delighted to read such a wonderful review from you. I feel very lucky to have met you and your family. Your family is so kind and wonderful. As we walked around the Kobe Bay Area, local children approached you and looked at you with admiration, making me feel like I was escorting a celebrity. I am glad that you enjoyed the Kobe beef restaurant I chose for you. It was a local spot where you could savor authentic Kobe beef, and I was happy to share that time and happiness with you. Thank you for sharing the details leading up to the tour as well. It was enjoyable discussing the itinerary with you before we met in person. And even more so, it was a pleasure to meet you on the day and take your family on the tour of Kobe. I look forward to the next time we can meet as friends. Natsuko
