Eight of us had an excellent day in Osaka with Kazuhiko who was a delight to be with. He was very informative and kept the day interesting and adapted our day as required. His English was good and his knowledge was excellent. He tailored a tour for our needs. We meet at our Hotel and we visited Sumiyoshi Shinto Shrine which was fascinating, then Osaka Castle where we saw Martial Arts competition, a good look round the Castle grounds and learned a lot about the History which Kazuhiko was very knowledge and interesting. We traveled by train between venues and which made it so much easier for us as he knew his way round. After our choice of lunch (sushi) we moved on to Kuromon Market for a tour. We found this experience an eye opener (in a nice way) with the amount of foods available and the size of some of the shellfish. Some were huge. After that he took us to a shopping district which was great. The ladies particularly enjoyed. I would recommend Kazuhiko to anyone who is in the Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe areas. The 8 of us are in the 50/60 age group and found this a great day out and great value. I wouldn’t hesitate using him or Triplelights again. We have used Triplelights in the past and have always had a great experience.
Dear Mr. Brian I appreciate your feedback. I’m very pleased that your nice group enjoyed their tour. I had great time as well showing your group around Osaka. We went to Sumiyoshi Shinto Shrine. You found 3 pebbles which will give you 5 big power (Longevity, Happiness, Physical, Wisdom and Financial). Moreover, you lifted up stone. I hope that your wish come true. And, you have known how to purify your body before visiting Shrine or Temple and you have known how to pray at a shrine. I hope that it was nice experience. At Osaka Castle which was the strongest fortress, you saw huge stones, castle tower etc., and you saw traditional martial arts called "Kendo" which students practiced. At Doutonbori area, you took nice pictures in front of most famous advertising of "Glico" which is a Japanese confectionery company, and you enjoyed Sushi at most famous Sushi shop in Japan called "Sushi-Zan-mai". After that, we visited Kuro-Mon" Japanese traditional market. I am glad that your group enjoyed the tour in Osaka. I sincerely hope this experience was memorable and you visit Japan again and if so I would be glad to guide you again. Thank you!! Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto
