Short stopover

With just 4 hours available ahead of transfer to the airport Tokie put together a great itinerary, allowing us to enjoy the delights of Osaka castle and a brief taste of downtown street food, skillfully negotiating queues and providing a great insight into Osaka life Tokie was simply a delight and had great language skills We wish her well over the coming months and would have no hesitation in recommending her to future travellers

Worth Every Penny!!

It was a wonderful tour, got to see the inside of Osaka Castle, got to eat great food at the Dotonbori District, all while having a really engaging conversation with the tour guide (she spoke perfect English to boot)!

Fantastic day with Tokie

Tokie is a very professional tour guide. We booked a private historical and modern Osaka Tour. Tokie responded very quickly and flexible to our wishes. She speaks excellent english and it is a pleasure to talk with her. She gave us a very good impression of life in Osaka. We will come back to Japan, it was the best vacation ever.. Thank you Tokie

Osaka

There are more than 300 castles in the Japan, but only 12 have original castle towers. Of the 12, Himeji Castle is the largest, most beautiful and designated as Japanese national treasure and World Heritage Site. Shoshazan Engyoji Temple, known as the filming location of the movie "The Last Samurai", is a very prestigious temple and was said to be the three major dojos of the Tendai sect in the Middle Ages. The view from Mt. Shosha climbed by ropeway is superb.
