Hi, I'm a National licensed guide living in OSAKA.
Raised between KYOTO and OSAKA, I've got two different unique cultures, customs and dialects.
So called Bilingual??
I can guide you both cities from Major tourist spots to Off-the-beaten paths. Throughout the tour, I'll show you unique local cultures and history !!

Since I got the license in 2015, I've guided foreign tourists to OSAKA, KYOTO and NARA and really enjoyed meeting with foreign guests. And also experienced Mt.KOYA, HIMEJI and KOBE.
Based on your request, I suggest the best memorial tour just for you !!

“ Personalized excursions to Nara and Wakayama ”

I enjoyed two customized long days trips organized by Kay travelling from Kyoto to lesser visited temples, shrines and nature sights in Nara and Wakayama prefectures. My wishes for the trips were fulfilled thanks to Kay’s care and guiding input.


Thank you for your attending the tour. I'm very happyto hear you are satisfied with Nara and Wakayama tour. Kansai area has still a lot of beautiful places to visit , so I hope you travel again and enjoy the area.
