Impressive temple tour

Natsuko was very friendly and professional tour guide, she was very knowledgeable about temples as well as Japanese Buddhism and Shintoism and I learned a lot. Nakayama-ji is a less visited, quiet and memorable ancient temple with impressive blue five-storied pagodas and cherry blossoms in spring. If you like Japanese temples and want to avoid the crowds of tourists, choose Natsuko's temple tour!

Yuchen S.

Thank you for joining my tour today. I was very happy during the tour because you were so kind. Even though you were a customer, you felt like a friend. It was a great time to be able to visit while seeing beautiful cherry blossoms in the good weather. Thank you for showing interest in Japanese culture and history. Despite it being cherry blossom viewing season, being able to visit a temple with few people and feeling warm and calm with you was a great experience. I look forward to guiding you on another tour. Thank you.

Amazing tour with Natsuko!!

Natsuko is so wonderful! She created an amazing itinerary for my family and it was such a fantastic experience. My daughter absolutely adored Natsuko. She brought a some fun side activities for my daughter to keep her entertained between things, which we really felt was extremely thoughtful. We will definitely book a tour with Natsuko next time we are in Japan and we will recommend her to anyone we know traveling to the Osaka area.

Ricky R.

Thank you for joining my tour. I truly appreciate your wonderful review. I was also happy to spend time with your kind family. The cherry blossoms at Osaka Castle were absolutely beautiful today, and I was delighted to be your tour guide on such a day. Your daughter is adorable, and I was happy to see her enjoying the shuriken game. It was a pleasure to have lunch with your lovely family at the wagyu restaurant. I'm glad the sticker book was useful for your daughter. Please come to Japan again. I look forward to seeing you all.

What an incredible day in Osaka!

I had an absolutely amazing time with her! She was full of energy and enthusiasm at every turn, and her positive attitude made every moment a blast. She was incredibly helpful and accommodating, making sure that everything went smoothly and that I had everything I needed. With her by my side, I didn't even think about missing my friends or family - she was all the company I needed! I would definitely recommend her as a fantastic guide.

Na K.

Thank you for sharing a wonderful experience with me! I am thrilled to hear that you had a fantastic time with me as your guide. Your stay was a little earlier than the cherry blossom season, but I'm glad we were able to find a few cherry blossoms. I sincerely appreciate your kind words and recommendation. If you ever need assistance or guidance in the future, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to welcoming you back for more amazing experiences!
