This day trip takes you to one of the 12 remaining Historical Castles of Japan. Though there are over 250 places there were Castles and still over 100 foundations remain and some Castles have been renovated and rebuilt, these 12 are historical, Marugame Castle is one of them. Let me take you there. All tours leave from Shin Osaka Station (Kyoto for a separate small fee).

What to Expect

We will depart for Marugame Castle early morning and head to one of the most awesome original Castles left in Japan. One of only 12 that remain completely original and historical. We will talk history, back stories, and see an amazing Castle that reflects what Japan was like before the 19th century, sometimes 300~400 years prior to that. Come let me take you back in time.

“ Memorable Kyoto Tour ”

We spent two days in Kyoto, visiting Himeji Castle and a number of shrines and temples in Kyoto. Mr. Richard is an excellent guide. His animated discussions about Buddhism, Shintoism, the political powers of Japan ensured there was never a dull moment in places which were otherwise steeped in history. My son too had a lovely time with him. His objective view of Japan and its culture were interesting.


Thank you Samhita for your kind words. I am happy you guys had a good time and I hope we did not wear mom out. I hope she had a good time as well. Please come again and tell your smart son to keep up the good work. He is amazing!

“ Day tour highlights of Kyoto ”

Our family of 5 with teens 16, 14 and 11 years had a great day with Richard. He was flexible, warm, knowledgeable and aimed the day correctly for teens and parents to enjoy. We highly recommend him as a guide in Kyoto.


Thank you guys! So much! Sorry for the rain, it puts a damper on things. Hope you enjoyed the Samurai House. Special day indeed. If you could take the time to write something on TripAdvisor and tell them you found me here on Triple lights, I would appreciate it deeply. Thank you again for a fun day!!!!! Kind regards Richard

“ 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.


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

“ a day with the oldies ”

Richard met us at our hotel on time. good start. We had a marvellous day. He is so informative about all things japanese. He was very patient and caring as sometimes we were a bit slow moving. In addition we had a new guide learning, Sirena is a gorgeous person couldn't speak highly enough of her as well. We would highly recommend Richard for a tour of Kyoto. Memorable day. Thank you Richard

“ Fun day in Kyoto ”

Richard was great. He has lots of stories, history and fun facts to share as we went on our tour...and his passion for Japan is very evident....great & fun guy , we had a really nice time and certainly recommend him to show you around Kyoto .


Thank you guys so much for coming with me on the tour and letting me drag you around Kyoto. I think you guys took my train cards, and if possible could you throw them in an envelope and send them back to me? Please come again, but next time let's make a little more time as you were pressed for time this time. Kind regards Richard
