Osaka and Kyoto day tours

Yoshiharu is a good tour Guide. He was at our hotel on time and was willing to do anything to make our tour good. He still a little new right now and everything didn't go as planned. Most of the time it was our group fault because some people in our group wanted go to a place that Yoshiharu has never been before and never told him about it before hand but Yoshiharu did his best to find the places and get us there. The only thing I can think of that might improve the tour is in the subway. I think yoshiharu might figure out the total Subway ride fare before hand so we could just pay one time instead of every single time we went to the subway. Overall Yoshiharu is a Good Guide and will get you to see the sights you want to. I would use him again next Time I visit Japan.

Yoshiharu K.

Thank you for your evaluation. I was very surprised to get there and could not have expected there. And I am sorry for having troubles when we bought tickets to get subway. We should have buy 1 day pass for subway but the pass is more expensive than buying tickets one by one, so we did.(Next time we will but 1 day pass) Next time you come to Japan, I will be ready for more interesting tour according to your interests. Thank you.

Osaka good times

Very friendly and helpful

Yoshiharu K.

Dear Peter and Derek Thank you for your evaluation. It is undeserved for me as a beginner's guide. If you come to Japan again, I want to guide you in Kyoto or Nara which has more than one thousand years long history. Yours sincerely, Yoshiharu

Hyogo Golden Route : Izushi-Toyooka (one of five tours)

Hyogo
12 hours

Hyogo prefecture is about 150km long in north-south direction. There are many sight seeing spots, not only Kobe, Himeji but also Izush-Toyooka, Tanba-Sasayama Awaji island. So Hyogo government decleared "Hyogo Golden Route" as recommended tours. I would like to guide those areas where tourists do not know well. Each area is one day tour. You can have a different experience from Kyoto or Osaka.
