Important Information

・You have to pay for lunch, transportation and tickets to any attractions for your guide during the tour. ・The itinerary is merely a suggestion. Upon your request, it may be changed and tailored to your interests. ・You may choose to start and end the tour at any location including airport and your hotel. However, I may charge you for the transportation depending on the location. ・Maximum group size is 6 people. This is to ensure the quality of the tour. However, this does not apply to small kids or babies. You can take small kids or babies with you without any extra charge even if the group will be bigger than 6 people. ・Bring enough cash with you because Japan is still cash-oriented.

・You do not have to order a Kobe beef for the tour guide as the price is high. The guide will have the cheapest option available at the restaurant or simply eat somewhere else.

・Guests with tattoos might be denied entry into some hot spring. If your tattoo can be covered with a tape, I suggest you to bring the tape with you. If your tattoo is too large to cover with a tape, please tell me in advance so that I can make sure that the hot spring we visit allows tattoo.

・Bring a towel with you to avoid renting/buying it at the hot springs unless you want one as a souvenir.

Day tour of Osaka

I had a great tour with Aimu, getting to visit all the locations that were suggested on the itinerary. Slightly unfortunate that some of them were closed (due to Covid-19) but Aimu just found more locations to visit on the go which suited me perfectly fine, as I like to just sort of explore randomly. Her knowledge on the history of where we went was fascinating and meant I learnt more about the areas then if I was alone. I also got to try a variety of different types of food. After the tour Aimu provided me with more places I could visit while I was in Osaka which was really helpful. Aimu was really fun to talk to and spend the day with (her English is excellent). I would highly recommend booking a tour with her.

Thank you very much for the nice comment and also for having me as a guide during this hard moment. I hope to see you again after all this things calmed down. Stay safe and please come again!

Day trip to Kyoto

Aimu was tireless in showing us around Kyoto. We had limited time to explore, but she made sure we immersed ourselves in the most interesting spots.

Thank you very much for your nice comment! I had fun going around with you too. Your questions were a little challenging, so I learned a lot during the tour as well :) Hope to see you again in the U.S!

Great taste of a guides hometown.

We loved spending the day in Kobe to learn about Aimu’s hometown of Kobe. Aimu is a great communicator and was great and being flexible in combining her local knowledge with our tastes and interests.

she has a wealth of knowledge of Chinese history which i found fascinating. Also, she was quite willing to customize my trip so that it met my needs and interests

-she was punctual -she has a good attitude -prior to my trip she helped me think through what options I had available. She spent considerable time in helping me plan my visit so that the days were structured around my particular interest which was photography. -she pointed out ways I could save money by doing things a certain way. -booked us a tea ceremony so i could photograph a Maiko. Excellent intro to the world of Maiko's and Geisha's.

I’m very grateful for your kind words. Thank you very much for a memorable day and all the experiences you’ve given me. However, I cannot stop giggling because you still don’t remember where you’ve been. Keep in mind that you visited Japan not China when you talk about the trip to your friends :D hehe Hope to see you again one day and take care until then ;)
