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.

This tour mainly tours Osaka and Kyoto. I have lived in Osaka for 10 years and have been to Kyoto 300 times through tourism. I can also offer hands-on guided tours. I can offer maiko and geiko viewing, furoshiki (wrapping cloth) making, matcha (powdered green tea), professional acupuncture in ninja costume, and introduction-type experiences.

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!

First, this tour takes you to "Tower of the Sun museum" built at the time of EXPO 70 and was renewed in 2018 as a permanent facility. The inside is a spectacular art space with "Tree of Life" created by Taro Okamoto. Actually this tree shows the evolution of life from ameba to human being. Strongly recommended to see the this tower as a hidden gem. Then you will visit highlights of Osaka as Osaka castle and Dotombori.

Peace of Mind

This was our first international trip and the language barrier was giving me the most concern. Having Koichi there to meet us at the airport and help us navigate the public transportation (we took the monorail then train) to travel to our hotel, was beyond helpful. On top of having someone there to help us (I saw many other people looking very lost), Koichi had a welcoming smile and demeanor that made us feel immediately welcomed and at ease. We knew immediately we were in good hands!

Fun and Informative

Yui was an energetic and fun guide taking us to Osaka Castle and Dotonburi to eat. She was personable that my teenage daughters were talking with her throughout the tour. We enjoyed her so much that we asked her to take us on another excursion to Nara Deer Park. When we are in Osaka again, she is our choice for any touring. By the way, her English was excellent.
