“ Richard is the most awesome guide! ”

My family (me, my wife and our 18 and 21 year old sons) spent two full days with Richard expiring Kyoto and Osaka, which was the highlight of our Japan trip. He is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable guides we have ever hired (in Japan or anywhere else). He took us to temples, shrines, forests, martial arts training centers, markets, tea ceremonies and a private lunch throughout Kyoto. Our Osaka street food/sake tour in Dotonbori is one of the most fun (and delicious) experiences we have ever had. Richard (and his wife) helped us track down and recover a lost wallet on Shinkansen, that could have really put a damper on our vacation, for which we are truly grateful. If you are looking for a guide in the Kansai region, Richard is the man!

Richard:

You guys were absolutely amazing. We did do a lot didn't we? It all worked out on the wallet because we got to see Osaka at night. There's a reason for everything! I thought it was great that we got to see you again when I was with another group on a different day. You loved those Wagyu skewers didn't you guys!!! LOL Thank you for coming with me and I'm so glad you guys had a great time. Please send your friends my way! Kind regards Richard
