This park is located in the north part of Osaka Prefecture and was the venue of the last EXPO held in 1970. After the exposition, the site was reconstructed as the present park for the citizens and travelers mostly from inside the country. The park includes many cultural monuments and natural sceneries, including the Tower of the Sun and the National Ethnology Museum. About in a half day, the guests can expect to visit most of the main facilities and cultural monuments.

Poor Experience

No disrespect to Yasuo, but my client had a very poor experience with him which caused me to have to issue a refund to the client for poor service, as she was very upset that he was not able to find the location. This did damage to my company's reputation, and my reputation as a travel agent. Again, no disrespect to Yasuo, but this is the experience we had. Nothing malicious happened, but the experience was not good or reliable for the client.

Tour with Yasuo

Our tour with Yasuo was very nice and organized. Yasuo was thoughtful to contact us at our hotel to confirm with us as my internet was not working well. He planned out our route well and it was a good overview for the time we booked with him. He is a very pleasant person to spend time with as a tour guide.

John & audrey M.

Ms and Mr Marks, Thank you very much for your thoughtful message. I was worried if the legs of Mr. Marks were OK in the last stage of your trip as he seemed a little tired. I am glad to hear your kind message. Thank you again and wish you an enjoyable life. Best wishes, Yasuo

Kyoto

Ama-no-Hashidate, meaning the "Heavenly Bridge" in Japanese, is one of the "three most scenic sights" in Japan along with "Matsushima" or the "Pine Island" and the "Itsuku-shima" or the "Great Rock Island". It is a long sandbar planted with pine trees on the white sands. When you look toward the sight, you feel as if you were climbing a bridge on the ladder into heaven. That is the origin of the name of the sight. The guests can also see the panoramic scenery around it.

When you use ferry from Uji port of Okayama Prefecture, in 25 minutes a giant red pumpkin come into view through the early morning haze clinging to the dockside. Today, Naoshima island has become one of the brightest stars in Japan's contemporary art scene. In Chischu Art Museum you appreciate "Open Field" designed by James TURRELL. It is an art as if it were sucked in the light. Other exhibits are 5 paintings of water lily by Claude MONET.
