Engaged 30years in overseas business of Japanese electrical & electronic manufacturing, I stayed 12years in Germany & Russia.
During the period I learned that mutual understanding of culture & history of each other would more important than advanced technologies & financial support. Thus, after leaving the company work, I would like to introduce history & cultures as well as eating & drinking traditions to inbound visitors so that they may have new experiences and understanding of Japan.
Those who spend time with me will have a beautiful memory and special experiences which could not happen in other tours.
Awaiting your contact to expand our new relationship!!
Takatoshi made our trip very memorable! He was kind, patient and knowledgeable. His itinerary was great and we ended the tour trying Japanese tapas style dishes pairing with Sake. I highly recommend him! Thank you very much Takatoshi! :-)
Thank you very much for your kind review. I have also enjoyed the tour with both of you visiting places and having sake at that time. As mentioned, Nara has several cities and places to where you have to visit like Asuka etc. as for the foundation area of Japan. You are always welcome and looking forward to visiting again in Nara.
Takatoshi is a wonderful guide! He is knowledgeable, thoughtful, and so ready to share his love for his country and culture. We spent the day touring many sites in Kyoto and learned so much. We toured beautiful gardens and mastered the subway system. He’s totally fluent in English and our day was an enjoyable learning experience. We highly recommend him!
Dear Debra san, Thank you for your nice comment to my tour yesterday. I really appreciate it and have also enjoyed tour time with your member. Hopefully, we will see you again anywhere in this small world. I wish your safely back to your home as well as your and your family's good health and prosperity in future.
We spent one day of visit in Kyoto with Takatoshi. He knows a lot about history and the different tips along the road. We had a great English discussion about any topics. We do recommend Takatoshi who also walked with us to a really nice Sake local place. Hope to see you again in Japan
Thank you for your positive review to my tour in Kyoto. It was also nice time for me during the tour. I convince that you have spent great days in Japan , how was in Fukuoka ? Hope you had a nice time at Yakitori restaurant . I wish you and your family's prosperity in future and see you again anyplace in this small globe.
This was such a great day in Nara. Takatoshi took us all over, showing us the highlights and adding a lot of history and depth at each location. He was able to answer every question we had about the different places with great detail which I really liked. He also knows the city since he lives in the area and was able to take us to cool places that I would never have even known existed. His English proficiency is also one of the best we had in Japan which makes a huge difference. If you are thinking of doing a half day/day in Nara, hire Takatoshi. Seriously, you will not regret it.
Thank you for your positive and kind comment to my Nara tour. I really appreciate having a time with you and your wife on that day, though the temperature was more than 32 degree and high humid . If we could have more time, I would be glad to show you other places, but I will expect your next opportunity among any city in the west Japan. I wish your nice further journey in Japan and your safely back to your home. I have already sent pictures taken by me to you address. Hope you have well received it.
