An energetic enjoyable half-day with Mimmy

Mimmy is a 5 star guide! So lovely and friendly. We visited Osaka on cruise ship and travelled by public transport with Mimmy who was waiting for us right near the port. We went to the castle and downtown and managed to do lots and travel quite a way in 3.30 hours. It made our visit very memorable because she was so easy to talk to. Mimmy's English is fantastic. Communication prior to meeting up was great. Thank you Mimmy.

Energetic, Informative and Fun

Had a wonderful tour in Nara. Tomoe took us to all the famous sites one can possibly cover in one day, first on the train from Kyoto, then lots of walking, and finally taxis in Nara as necessary or when I needed to take a break (not to mention to save precious time). Tomoe gave us a wonderful overview of the local history, the Shinto traditions and other important cultural notes. She also patiently answered all our questions. In sum, Tomoe made us feel right at home while providing us a rich experience.

Dear Ervin and Mina Thank you for a good review. Thanks to your pushing yourselves, we were able to have a good time even there are some upslopes and stairs. You two are so sweet and kind, which warmed my heart though it was cold outside. I hope you did a good shopping in Tokyo and safe trip home. Arigato Mimmy(^o^)

Osaka One Day Highlights

Osaka is considered Japan's economic powerhouse having 2.7 million people. Many tourists say Osaka is more relaxing compared to other big cities in Japan. That's because Osakans have a good sense of humor. You will see old and new in this city: Osaka Castle built in the Samurai era, Shitennoji Temple founded 1400 years ago, modern Umeda Sky Building with an open roof observatory, etc. Also you cannot forget Osaka is the number 1 gourmet city! It used to be called Japan's kitchen.
