I asked for something not touristy and Mari did not disappoint. We wandered through a very special,older but vibrant neighbourhood in Osaka, full of interesting activities and people. No tourists. With Mari explaining things and translating for chats *******. We ended at a private museum of storytelling with its curator/storyteller. Mari is a great guide with excellent English.
Thank you so much for your review! It was memorable to explore different sides of Osaka. I am also happy to help your discovery. I am more than welcome to have you again in the future, if you come back to Osaka or even Kyoto. I hope Osaka will not change that much when you come back. Again, thank you so much and have a good time in Japan!
