My wife and I just spent two days with Seiko exploring Osaka, the Himeji Castle and Kobe. She picked us up and delivered us back to our hotel. She showed us how to use the subways and trains in Osaka and took us to interesting sites. She also took us to restaurants serving local food. Her English is outstanding. We had a great time with Seiko and would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a local guide in the Osaka area.
Thank you Chris and Helen for the wonderful two days. I sometimes find it a bit challenging to entertain someone who travels a lot and already seen many parts of Japan, but I ended up being entertained by many good questions from you all the time (thanks to your understanding about history etc)!!! Thanks for many drinks and meals with you too. Safe travels back to the States:) Seiko
