Hello! My name is Kaori.
When I was young I was interested in tourism.
I was studying and working as tour conductor around Kanto area in Japan.
I lived abroad from my early 20s to mid 30s.
Australia, Taiwan, Central America, Great Britain, Spain and Italy.
Now I came back and live in Osaka where I was born.
The reason why I applied for the tour guide is because I was pleased when I guided my foreign friends around Japan.
Me personally love traveling a lot.
Especially trekking in the mountains and MTB trip by myself!
I’ve done El Camino De Santiago in Spain 4times!
Camino francés, Vía de la plata, Camino Norte, Camino de Madrid, Camino de San Salvador, Camino primitivo.
I’ve done Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, too.
I’ve travelled around Morocco, Greece and Italy by MTB :)
I love adventure!
I love to look up sightseeing informations and listen to the story of travelers!
In japan I also lived in several different prefectures such as Osaka, Nara, Wakayama, Tokyo, Kanagawa.
I might be able to guide you not only popular touristic sites but also to local hidden sights!
Please focus things what you like and want!!
I promise to do my best to organize a tour that is consistent with your interests!
Thank you for paying attention for my self-introduction.
I’m looking forward to see you soon.
Even my calendar closed, possibly I can guide you :)
Please ask me with direct message!
Spending the day discovering Osaka with Kaori felt like spending the day with a friend. We saw all the main points of interest in Osaka but also a lot of the off beaten track. Speaking with her we also learned a lot about the local culture and people mindset. It was a really wonderful day overall and we would recommend her to our friends if they visit the area. Highly recommend this guide and this tour which is aligned to your interests.
Hello Francois :) Thank you for your kind review! Our tour was the end of the day of 2022, 31 Dec. I’m really appreciate to have you 2 for my last guests 2022! Your challenging spirit, energetic soul gave me great vibration and feeling to show you more and more deep OSAKA lol Thank you very much for your cooperations to enjoy every moment! Kaori
Fascinating to see and learn about the kofun (burial mounds) as well as the various crafts with ties to the area (such as knife making, textile dying). Shimano Bike Museum provided interesting history of bicycles as opposed to the history of Shimano company. Kaori planned the transportation routes in advance so we moved around efficiently. We appreciated that she asked regularly if anyone needed a restroom when there was one nearby. She planned a great day based on our interests.
Hello Amy! Thank you for your kind review! Your requests were not same as my usual guests and it was interesting challenge for me :)) I like your unique sensitivity ;) and thank you for your unique and useful gifts! Thank you very much!! Kaori
Made it easy to meet in Osaka from Kyoto and met us at the train station just as we exited the car. A highlight of the trip was the market in Osaka. Very flexible with our requests!
Hi Marina :) Thank you for your quick and kind reply! I'm the one who want to say thank you for your flexibility! Thank you for accept my personal request for your day! Your boys are all very good behave and polite. Anthony is very fun person to communicate. And you are so sweet lady :) I wish you are having happy new year time in Japan! Kaori
We spent a great day with Kaori in Kyoto. We love good food and sake and also want to take our 6 years old kid to see some temples. Kaori is very flexible to cater for our needs. We will definitely book her again if we visit Japan again!
Hi Ron :) Thank you for sharing your holiday with me! You are all very relaxing and have peaceful heart. I enjoyed the time together, too! I’m very happy to introduce you my favorite good sake restaurant for our lunch :) I’m looking forward to meet you again sometime soon next year ;) Keep enjoying your stay in Japan!! Kaori
