2 day night tour

The guided 2-day night tour of Osaka was an absolute delight, thanks to my fantastic guide Kazuyoshi. Right from the start, his friendly and approachable nature put me at ease, making the experience feel more like exploring the city with a knowledgeable friend rather than a traditional tour guide. What truly set this tour apart was Kazuyoshi's dedication to showing me authentic local spots while steering clear of tourist traps. He took me off the beaten path to places that truly captured the essence of Osaka, allowing me to experience the city from a unique perspective. Whether it was hidden izakayas, quaint alleyways, or vibrant streets, each stop was a treasure trove of local culture and flavor. One of the highlights of the tour was Kazuyoshi's personal recommendations. They shared their favorite things to do in Osaka, giving me insider tips and insights that I wouldn't have discovered on my own. Additionally, their recommendations for food spots were spot on, introducing me to some of the most delicious and authentic dishes Osaka has to offer. Overall, the two-day night tour with Kazuyoshi was an absolute delight. Their warmth, friendliness, and genuine passion for Osaka shone through at every moment, making it an unforgettable experience.

Hello, Kazuyoshi. We had an absolutely fantastic experience on the Kyoto tour with Kazuyoshi. He's not only an excellent guide but also a genuinely kind and friendly person. He made our tour truly special by taking us to the well-known spots like Kinkakuji Temple, Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, and Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine, but also to hidden gems that only locals know about. His deep knowledge of Kyoto’s history and culture made every stop fascinating. What I loved most were the secret spots and local areas he showed us, which gave us a real taste of the city's authentic side. These places were away from the usual tourist paths, making our experience unique and memorable. If you want to see the best of Kyoto and discover its hidden treasures, I highly recommend this tour. Kazuyoshi's passion and expertise make him an outstanding guide, and his friendly nature makes the whole experience even better. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Japan! Thank you.

Kuromon Market is the kitchen of Osaka. Most of the market staff are Japanese. Also, the variety of foodstuffs is numerous! Japanese people feel a language barrier, and I will solve that problem. When I have been to foreign countries, I have not been able to eat what I wanted to eat because of the language barrier. Traveling should be fun first and foremost. I will also guide you through the wonderful culture of Kuromon Market with its stories. Have the best 3 hours with me!
