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.

Yasuo A.

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

Super day in Kyoto with Yasuo

Yasuo was an excellent tour guide. With an experienced local guide like Yasuo, we were able to see more sights than if we had toured Kyoto on our own...with the additional benefit of Yasuo’s insights about the places we visited. We also had an excellent lunch at a cool restaurant that we would have never found on our own. Also, Yasuo was very responsive to questions prior to our tour date. Feel comfortable that you will have a great tour experience with Yasuo.

Yasuo A.

Mr Don Wind Thank you very much for your kind compliment. I hope you have had and will have a good impression on Japan. Please continue your pleasant trip from now on. I hope we will meet again on your future trips. Thank you. Yasuo

Excellent. Highly recommended.

We spent the day with Yasuo on our day trip from Osaka to Kyoto. We had a really fantastic day with him, he was great company, friendly and extremely knowledgeable of all the places we visited. He also took us to a really nice place for lunch which we really enjoyed. We spent 10 days in Japan and this was by far the best day. If you are looking for a punctual, friendly guide with Good English then Yasuo is a great choice.

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.
