A beautiful tour of Himeji

We really had a great time exploring Himeji with Nishi. Very professional and won't forget it.

Kichi J.

Thank you for your kind review. I am so pleased you really enjoyed on that day. It was the best timing to see sakura. You also enjoyed tasting several sake at the brewery. Your talk was so interesting and informative. Please continue your journey and visit Japan in autumn next time! I wait for your next visit.

Highly recommended

Nishi provided very informative tour. She explained the history, the building defense strategy, the construction of the castle. She showed the best photo spots, the locations used in the movies, and even some videos about the usage of the castle.I highly recommend to take this tour and Nishi as a tour guide.

Svetlana  L.

I appreciate your warm message. I also had a very good and pleasant time with you. I learned a lot of things from what you told and asked me. I was really glad to see you enjoyed every new thing you found. I appreciate the experience in guiding you. I hope you'll visit Japan again in another season. Thank you again.

Hyogo prefecture is about 150km long in north-south direction. There are many sight seeing spots, not only Kobe, Himeji but also Izush-Toyooka, Tanba-Sasayama Awaji island. So Hyogo government decleared "Hyogo Golden Route" as recommended tours. I would like to guide those areas where tourists do not know well. Each area is one day tour. You can have a different experience from Kyoto or Osaka.
