What to Expect

In this tour, you will experience nature and history. Yoshino is quite far from the central places of Kansai in Japan but it is relatively easily accessible. There are a few walks to do, mainly in the beginning in Okusenbon but the view is worth it, especially during the Sakura season.

Osaka Tour

Mouloud was exceptional! He arrives promptly at the airport for pick up even when my flight was landing quite late that day, and was very familiar with the city’s attractions. He is also familiar and reliable with Osaka’s public transportation, super helpful in saving us time when going to USJ by catching the direct train!

Thank you, Nadia. It was great to guide you to discover Osaka! I am glad you liked it. I hope you come back soon to visit Japan.

Visite Guidée d'un Jour en Montagne Japonaise : Ikoma, Osaka

Nara
8 hours

Quand un touriste visite le Kansai, il favorise les villes importantes comme Osaka ou Kyoto. Au milieu du Kansai, le mont Ikoma n’est malheureusement pas très connu. C’est un coin paisible à 20 minutes de train d’Osaka et vaut le coup de s’y arrêter au moins un jour. Je suis guide-interprète certifié du département de Nara. Allons découvrir cette montagne dans ce circuit. Vous pouvez vous attendre à de la nature, à de l’urbanisme plutôt rétro, de l’histoire... et à de l’attraction !
