Hello, I'm HIDEo YOSHIda. Please call me HIDEYOSHI, the same name as the famous shogun who built the Osaka Castle in 1585. I was born in Kobe and worked in Osaka for nearly 40 years. I would like to introduce the Kansai region to you ,including Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama. Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, foreigners built their residences on the hillside of the Kitano-cho area, overlooking the ocean. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums, including the Weathercock House, with it's symbol weathercock on the triangle-shaped roof. In Meriken Park, the red Port Tower (the city's landmark), creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum. The museum's design was inspired by the waves and sailing ships. When you have a chance to visit Osaka, please join my tour. I'm sure you'll enjoy the interesting and historical, scenic spots. For example, Shin-Sekai is a downtown area with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) at a reasonable price. Billiken (a famous statue of the spirit of luck) will be waiting for you!!. Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi HIDEYOSHI in 1585. Oh, it's my residence, isn't it ! These days "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" area in USJ, or Universal Studios Japan, is also attracting more and more people. I'll be looking forward to seeing you !!

Hello, my future guests. My name is Kosuke. I have lived in Kochi for 62 years with my wife and two daughters. I used to work at high schools as an English teacher. I chose the job because I like telling the students about the joy of communicating with foreign people. Now I'm very happy, because I can work for foreign visitors as a licensed guide. As I know Kochi very well, I can show you various nature, traditional culture, local foods and so on. In every place you visit, I’ll explain how local people live there, because I have lots of acquaintances who want to tell the good points of their neighborhoods. When you join my tours, I’ll try to customize them to suit what you call for as a traveler. And I am confident I can entertain you in various ways. So click me if you like. I'm looking forward to meeting you soon.

A great day touring Kochi with Hideo!

We had a lovely day touring the city of Kochi with Hideo Y. He is a delightful man and was very knowledgeable about all of the places we visited. There were 9 in our party with kids aging from 10-17. We had a micro bus and that was a great way to get around. We started at Kochi Castle then went to Katsurahama Beach and Ryogado Cave. We enjoyed each of the locations and Hideo did an amazing job educating us while keeping the kids engaged. I highly recommend Hideo, he was definitely a highlight for our trip.

Sherry C.

I'm very glad to have your wonderfl review. You visited the castle for the first time. Kochi castle has 4 stories outside but 6 floors inside. We saw iron spikes on the top of stone walls that block enemies from climbing up for the defense. Ryugado cave is one of the 3 biggest limestone caves in Japan. We could enjoy sightseing cave such as Jellyfish Stone, Thousand pillars, Memorial Waterfall and the like. We had good exercises on that day. We walked up and down many stairs in the castle and the cave. Your kids were alive and kicking. I wish you and your family all the best.

Great day in Kochi with Mr Kawasaki from Tr Taxi R

Our driver was very attentive to us and an excellent driver. He accompanied us through Kochi castle, took us to a beautiful shrine, fun market where we tried bonito prepared in a seared fashion and then to a magnificent beach. He used Google translate to ensure that we had the key points. We knew ahead of time that he did not speak English but we had a wonderful time with him regardless.

Rena K.

Thanks a lot for your kind words and for sharing your 5-star review with us. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Excellent experience

Keiji was excellent and very knowledgeable about the history of Japan. The temple experience was enlightening and a highlight of the trip.
