I only had 4 hours in Osaka before I had to catch my flight back to the U.S. and I'm so glad I made contact with Lisa. We developed an itinerary together and even though it drizzled a bit, she was so thorough and detailed, the light rain was not a bother. She helped me with my luggage and helped me buy a train ticket to the airport. Lisa is a wonderful guide. Thank you, Lisa
