What to Expect

Nagoya is the 4th largest city in Japan with a population of about 2.2 million. I would like to guide you Nagoya Castle, Osu Kannon Temple, old shopping streets, Oasis21 and Nagoya TV Tower.

Nagoya Castle was first built by Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1612. Afterwards it was burnt down in 1945 and it was reconstructed in 1959. You can see Golden Shachi on the both ends of the top roof. Furthermore the Honmaru (the keep of a castle) reconstructed in 2013 is open to the public, too. You can see beautifully decorated wall paintings in the Honmaru.

Osu Kannon is popluarly known as one of the three Kannons in Japan. And next to the Temple, we can walk through Osu old shopping streets. It is a mix-cultured town.

Sakae is the central area of business in Nagoya. You can enjoy Oasis21 and Nagoya TV Tower near Sakae. Oasis21 is a big roof made of glass foating in the air. It is called "Water Space Ship."

Nagota TV Tower used to be built as a broadcasting tower in 1954 and played the role until 2011. Now the TV Tower is lit up by using 100,000 LEDs. So we can enjoy the night view from the observatory of TV Tower. in particular the TV Tower viewed from Oasis21 is the best,

Local foods are Hitsumabushi, Misonikomi-udon, and Kishimen.

Hitsumabushi is a bowl of rice topped with finely chopped grilled eels. Misonikomi-udon is a udon noodle boiled in miso (fermented soybean paste) soup. kishimen is wider or flatter noodle than usual udon noodle.

Well planned tour of Kyoto!

We had an excellent day with HIDEo YOSHIda. From our wishes he planned a tour, took us around town and showed us different sights of Kyoto. He is very knowledgable in many different areas so we learned a lot about Japanese culture and history. We can warmly recommend a day with HIDEo YOSHIda.

Hello Brian. I'm very glad to receive your good review. Today we visited Japanese gardens such as moss garden in Saihoji, Sogenchi garden in Tenryuji and Ninomaru garden in Nijo Castle. They gave us peaceful and fresh atmosphere. I'm going to do my best on guide for many years to come. Thank you. Best HIDEo YOSHIda

Excellent guide. Well prepared tour.

He is so friendly and very knowledgeable about local history and japanese mythology. His itinerary was well preplanned. I would not have been able to explore all the places we did on my own. Thanks Hideo san!

Hideo Y.

Hello Pobparat I'm very happy to receive your message. Favored by good weather, we could enjoy visiting Kumano three Grand Shrines such as Kumano Nachi Taisha, Hongu Taisha, and Hayatama Taisha. Furthermore we watched Nachi Waterfalls with a height of 133 meters, the longest drop in Japan. I look forward to your activities and success in your life. Thank you, Tua.
