Osaka

Drank all night, didn't get drunk

It wasn't the sake that was intoxicating, but it was all the things that Richard spoke. He truly has the best knowledge about the cuisine, area, spots and local history. We talked a lot, visited hidden gems, has all the way from affordable, expensive till priceless food, the best of their categories. If you're looking to explore the food scene of Namba/Dotonbori, Richard is THE guy

Fantastic tour guide

Richard was recommended by a friend who had toured with him before. Richard was outgoing and funny. We really enjoyed his sense of humor and stories of his life in Japan. His English and Japanese was great. He had preplanned our stops at local, off the beaten track Sake bars and was very friendly with the vendors. It was clear they new him well and we were treated like gold. I wish he did more tours as I would have booked them all with him. I highly recommend Richard !

Thank you Kathy for allowing me to whisk you around the back streets of Osaka! I am so happy you had a good time and I hope the rest of your Japan trip is just as enjoyable. Any questions, please let me know.
