About Tour Guide Kazuhiko G.

Hello, I’m Kazuhiko. Please call me “Kazu”. I'm a national-licensed tour guide. I have a wife and 4 children.

I was born in Osaka city near Kyoto, although I have lived in many places across Japan. I used to work for multinational electric company and I traveled to many countries (U.S., Thailand, Hong Kong etc.) on business.

I have enjoyed guiding many foreign tourists in Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Hiroshima, Tokyo, Mt. Fuji etc. for many years.

During your tour, you can discover a rich Japanese history spanning about 2,000 years, learn about and experience profound Japanese arts (tea ceremony, flower arrangement etc.), feel the spiritual atmosphere of Buddhist temples or Shinto shrines, see a breathtakingly beautiful scenery of Mt. Fuji, bamboo forest, Japanese gardens etc..

Moreover, you can taste Japanese cuisine that each season has to offer (Sushi, Tempura, Soba or ramen noodle etc.).

You can get close to nature and feed wild deer or monkeys or even a build snowman in winter.

I’m sure that I can provide a splendid tour of Japan that will be a lasting memory for you to treasure.

Experience the mysteries of Japan with 5 senses !!

Your memorable tour awaits you.

Please feel free to contact me!!

Fantastic Most Memorable Tour

Kazuhiko San provided an excellent service. He toured me and my father around Osaka Castle, Local shrines and the Dotonbori area. We ate lunch at a fantastic conveyor belt sushi restaurant which we all enjoyed. Throughout the tour Kazuhiko san provided historical and interesting facts relating to the various areas visited. Me and my father had a great time and would strongly recommend Kazuhiko San. ありがとうございます.

Hello, Thank you for the nice review. I apologize for making you walk all over the place in a crowded place. But the weather was great and I was glad you had a good time too. I hope this tour will be one of the most memorable tours in Japan. Good luck with your Japanese language studies. こちらこそありがとうございました!!

Wonderful personalized tour of Kyoto

Kazuhiko was our guide for a wonderful day in Kyoto. I contacted him half a year ago with an unusual request. To meet us at the cruise terminal in Kobe and to visit specific sites in Kyoto for our one day there. I didn't know if it was possible to see all the sites in one day, there were six of them I wanted to see. But Kazu got us to all of them. It was a tiring, but great day. One day in Kyoto is really not enough, but it's all we had and Kazuhiko made sure we made the most of it, having us driven around to six different places in the city with just enough time at each to get a feel for them. He also told us about the culture and answered all our questions. He was with us for 12 hours, a very long day for him. I was so happy to find him, because it was very hard to find a guide who would give me and the group the tour I wanted.

Thanks for the good review. I apologize for making you walk a lot. I am also sorry that we could not spend enough time at Kiyomizu-dera and other places. But I am glad you were pleased and I am happy too. I had a great time too. I hope the tour was memorable for you. Thank you very much !!

Knowledgeable, kind and accommodating guide!

Kazu took us on a customized half-day tour of Osaka, meeting us at our hotel in Kyoto first, and helping us navigate our way to the city. We made some spontaneous changes to our plan for the day, and he did not miss a beat! Our family had a wonderful time! He is a wonderful guide!
