My sister, two daughters and I were very excited for our Osaka Day Tour with Koichi. We agreed to meet with him in our hotel lobby at 8:30 am, but as early as 8:15 am, we were already set. We were surprised to see Koichi arrive early as well. It gave us a good impression of him. The first place we went to was the Osaka Castle. In actuality, this was not part of the itinerary because we were onl...

Seiko led us through Osaka on our last day in Japan, taking us through areas of the city we would never have discovered on our own. She was a wealth of knowledge (I wish we'd booked Seiko for our first day - our entire Japan experience would have been more detailed and nuanced), friendly and funny. She was happy to alter the tour on the move as our small group made snap decisions about what we wan...

We had a wonderful night with Tasuhiro, Hiro-san. Starting with his punctuality, it led to an engaging night exploring Osaka and its vibrant food district. As first-time visitors to Osaka, he was a great asset, escorting us from Kyoto and immersing us in the local cultural rituals and adding his knowledge of the area. He was charming company and when we return one day, we would like to see him aga...
