Great Guide, excellent communication and highly recommend.

Taku was fantastic. Immediate communication over email - really appreciated this since we booked last minute. He arrived on time with a sign with our name on it so we wasted no time. This was perfect since our hotel was busy. He took us everywhere we asked and we saw the Osaka castle which was a wonderful tour. Loved learning about the history. We had a great lunch which we asked him to find a good local restaurant and he didn't disappoint! Fab lunch!! Never felt rushed which was truly appreciated. Loved chatting and learning about he and his family, local life and history. He made sure we had detailed English maps and knew exactly where we were going. Really enjoyed our day together. Felt very comfortable and able to navigate the busy train system. Thanks so much. Lesley and Shaley

What a fantastic experience! Taku was punctual and his instructions on where we met were easy to follow. He is a friendly and informative guide who took me to the highlights of Osaka that I wished to see. We visited Osaka Castle and Taku took me to the best photo spots and told me about the history of the building. In the afternoon we went to Onsen hot springs on Takus advice. What a brilliantly authentic Japanese experience which took my budget into account. I would thoroughly recommend booking a tour through Taku to anyone interested in learning about Osaka! Thanks for a great day! :-)

Dear Phil, thank you very much for choosing my tour as the very first guest on this TripleLights website and sharing time with me. I definitely had a great time with you, specially seeing you relaxed at the Onsen hot springs was a relief and gave me the feeling of something that I could be able to direct you to the right place. Thank you again and please contact me when you come back to Osaka.
