“ Walking and food tour of Osaka ”

We really enjoyed our tour with Fumi. Fumi spoke wonderful English and she took time to plan an itinerary around our interests. We made Takoyaki and had a go at also making plastic display food. We walked through the Kuromon market and enjoyed the food and snacks there. I think the most interesting stop for us was at the knife shop where we met the owner and learned how Japanese knives are crafted.


Suan, Thank you. I also had a great time with you. Your kids were so nice!! Did you enjoy in Hiroshima and Kyoto? Please come to Japan again. I am waiting with you!! Fumi

“ Fun time in Osaka ”

We are a family of 4, with 2 teenagers on our first trip to Japan. Fumi showed us the highlights of Osaka on our day tour. First, she took us to Osaka castle. It was hot that day with little shade, so Fumi helped purchase our tickets while we waited under a shaded spot. She is very kind, knowledgeable and friendly. She was also very patient as we walked through the museum floors of the castle. She then showed us the popular shopping areas. The Kuromon market was very interesting. The entire place was very busy. She took us to a great place for lunch and helped us shop. Fumi took the time to ask if we were looking for anything specific and we did. Our son was looking for a particular store and she was able to find it for us. We would highly recommend her for any tour.


Hi, Regan I am so happy because I can tell you again!! It was a wonderful day with your family. But it was too hot day, I thought you were tired. I do'nt forget your family, Regan, Ria, Andrew, Lauren. I appreciate all of you. Please come to Japan someday. I am looking forward to meeting you!! Thank you so much.
