“ Fantastic day in Osaka and Kyoto ”

Richard is the real deal. He is full of information, history, stories and insights. He also knows all the little, local, out of the way places that are fun to see and that most guides do not share. He also was a lot of fun and we went to seven different areas in one day! We tasted all kinds of great local foods and sake. I am really happy thst I spent the day with him. Saw so much that I would not have been able to see on my own. It is obvious that he loves Japan and he shares his passion with you. He is also a great photographer. Fabulous day. I highly recommend him as a guide and new friend in Japan.

Richard:

Thank you Roxanne! I am so happy that you had a good time and it was a lot of fun covering both Kyoto and Osaka. Remember, I only take eight by tens! LOL. You were very fun and have a great sense of humor and I hope you have a safe trip home and let me know if you need anything Kind regards Richard
