If you are looking for a fun knowledgeable guide this is guy for you! I was finding it hard to do a food tour and he custom made one up for me for Osaka. He took me to a brilliant Sake tasting place and to some great food places! I never would have been able to do this on my own without Takatoshi. As a solo traveler it can be difficult and also language barrier trying to eat out. He was fantastic the whole time. I learnt so much about the temple, and also about eating and drinking habits when out. Like vodka with hot water. I have never heard of this! It was great for someone to explain these things! Please do not hesitate in contacting him. If I ever come back I will definitely hire him for a guide for Nara. Highly recommend. You will have a great time whatever it is you decide to do!
Dear Elsie-san, Thank you very much for your very positive review on my Osaka tour. I hope you could have a nice stay in Nara as well. As we have talked, tasting for drinking and eating of any country would be best understanding of culture,history and people in the country. I really appreciate it if you could come again in near future to see among cities in the west Japan. Awaiting your next visit to Japan !
