“ Kyoto and Nara with Richard ”

Our group of two middle aged, active couples, recently returned from Japan and three days with Richard. Unique and uniquely qualified are the words best describing our three days. Even though he is not Japanese by heritage, Richard has enough years of varied experience to fill many lifetimes. He is proficient in ALL aspects of Kyoto/Nara/Osaka life from food and beverage (saki expert), temples and shrines (he is approaching the qualifications for becoming a Buddhist monk) and just about anything else you can hope for. Almost everybody on the street knows him and his fun and convivial personality carry the day. I promise that by hiring Richard in any capacity you will get experiences of a lifetime.

Richard:

You guys are not only kind but you were so fun to be with. I am glad our chance meeting turned into a few days. Thank you so much and I hope you have the chance to come back someday (and go to Osaka! LOL). Take care and see you soon! Kind regards, Richard
