Pleasant and Flexible Tour Guide

What drew me to choose Kaori is her seemingly genuine smile and her excellent reviews. She promptly replied to my queries. She adapted the tour based on our preference and age groups. Osaka is a wonderful place! You will not get bored, especially we stayed very near Dohtonbori but going around can be very perplexing that is why touring with a local like Kaori made our visit pleasant and memorable. I was surprised that she even casually brought my daughter to a guitar shop in America Mura, of course to the delight of my teenage daughter! She accompanied my daughter in a cat cafe (which was pre-arranged as I mentioned that my daughter would like to go one) while the rest of us had coffee. She would step up if needed, sensing that we were a bit tired. She really is awesome! Highly recommended tourist guide and a veteran at what she does. Just manage your expectations when you tour Osaka. Maybe 2 or 3 spots in a day to enjoy the place. I hope to come back to stay in Kyoto longer, hopefully with Kaori again! Dōmo arigatōgozaimasu, Kaori!

Amazing Tour Experience

Kaori is a very enthusiastic guide who led us around Kyoto on a well planned tour, covering the historical sites, gardens, markets and tucked away locations, with lot of explanations and suggestions for activities. It was a very enjoyable experience for us.

Hi Soumyadeep! Thank you for leaving great review :) It was Japanese holiday week so we start earlier to avoid crowd! Thank you for your understanding and cooperation! Even though you had friend wedding party and cannot join all the tour with me, but your friends and I were having very good culture exchanging conversations :)) I wish you have another chance to visit Kyoto again! Hope to see you again! Kaori

Kaori was amazing, From Osaka but has lived all over. Very smart, kind and fun. Perfect.

We just had the greatest end to our 2 week trip to Japan and it was all thanks to Kaori. She is a very knowledgeable guide who is from Osaka but also has lived all over the world so she has a lot of experience as a traveler and perfect English. He is amazing at logistics and worked out the large shuttle picking us up at a port, took us on the perfect length tour and in covered areas (rain) and got us back in time to leave for the airport. Look no further, Kaori is your guide. I would recommend hiring her for both Osaka and Kyoto and any other places she is willing to take you.

Hi Jamie! Thank you for your kind reply :) We had such short amount of time to be together but because of your understanding and cooperation we could make very fun time! Arigato! I wish you have chance to visit to Kyoto and Osaka next time! Kaori :)
