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 !!


-Transportation fee and lunch of you and a guide will be paid by the customer.

-If you'd like a car chartered tour with a guide, please check the PRIVATE CARS TOUR by yourself in advance.

-If you have some difficulties to walk a lot or any dietary restriction, I'll happy to send a message in advance.

Thank you for your attention.

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.
