Our family of five had a great time eating and drinking our way through two neighborhoods in Osaka. Richard was a master at handling our three overtired and surly children and he took us to some of the best meals we had in Japan, with the sushi approaching all time status. Make sure you come hungry and thirsty for sake along the way, with plenty of cash on hand. You will be the only foreigners in many places, and Richards Japanese is so good that the natives are in awe. He is also a wise and kind guide, who has an easy way with kids, and will tell them to get with the program in ways a parent can’t. Highly recommend!
