“ Temples, shrines & food. ”

Richard was well prepared, energetic and easy going. Extremely knowledgeable on local culture, particularly regarding Osaka’s Shogan past and religious events. A vast amount of information to absorb in one morning and we were greatfull that there was no exam to follow up! The food and sake destinations were just what we hoped for and his regular contacts among the small food vendors made for a great culinary experience. His recent discovery of the historical Living Village and tour of the market were highlights.

Richard:

Thank you John and Sandy. I am so glad you had a good time. Thought I asked the Cruise Ship staff to leave the tests in the room...... odd..... Have a great trip and hope to see you again Kind regards, Richard
