The Fushimi Shrine is one amazing Shrine, it has over 10,000 Red (Vermillion) Torii Gates that takes 2 hours to walk through. The history and culture, the energy, it is hard to put into words. Come let me take you on Spiritual Journey that you will not soon forget! We will have some tasty Sake at the end.

What to Expect

I will pick you up at your Hotel or Kyoto Station, then we will head to Fushimi Inari. We will write some prayers for you on a wooden plank and offer them for the Fire Ceremony the next morning. We will then make a 2 hour hike up and around 10,001 Torii Gates (OR NOT).

After, we will head for the vendor street, have some food, some lunch and a sake tasting afterwards. If you decide not to take the hike, we head to Kiyoizudera Temple or some other place if you have been there with me or someone else already.

Nishiki Market maybe?>

Let me know, I am flexible....

“ Kyoto and Osaka ”

Richard was the best. We had a 6 year old and he helped tailor the event to accommodate her. Very knowledgeable about things. He also gave logistic suggestions (e.g. ICE card). He had ideas of what to do, but was able to make on the fly changes rather easily. Make sure he takes you to the food markets. He knows the right places to eat and tries to keep the price down by picking high value food items. Even though he is anglo-American, his knowledge of Japan makes you feel he has lived in Japan all his life


Hey Jim, thank you for your kind words and the two days you booked with me. You and your family were the best. I hope Arielle takes care of those chopsticks! LOL Please tell Amy thank you and if you guys ever need assistance again, please let me know. Hope you learned a lot on my tour, hope to see you again. Kind regards, Richard

“ Amazing 2 days in Kyoto ”

What an amazing experience to have someone who could explain Japan and Kyoto from a western and eastern perspective. His knowledge from food, to history, and mysticism were a highlight of our trip to Japan. Every place and experience was better than the last. Place yourself in his hands and enjoy. We look forward to returning to explore more of Japan and Richard would have to be a part of that! Highly recommend.


You want 'more of Japan' with me??? Oh no, you will be in trouble! LOL Thank you so much for everything and I am so happy you enjoyed yourselves. I hope you guys come again and let me take care of you on your next Japan trip! Kind regards, Richard

“ Tour of Kyoto and Osaka ”

My wife and I were visitng Japan in the very hot summer months of July/August. We had the pleasure of doing a single day tour of Kyoto and the next day a tour of Osaka with Richard. He was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of each city. Touring with Richard is like touring with a friend that you have known for years and can causually speak with. He is also someone that can show you all the local ******* that you would never venture into on your own. With Richard having lived in Japan for several decades he is familiar with the locals in each city making the tour seemless. Thank you Richard for proving us with a wonderful experience.


Thank you guys for coming and sorry for the heat. I appreciate your kindness and for allowing me to drag you around Osaka!!!! Kind regards, Richard

“ Awesome day with Richard ”

The tour with Richard was wonderful. We learned many new things about Japan and the culture. Our boys especially enjoyed it and bonded with Richard. He was great with kids. Thank you for a great tour.


I really do not understand why you did not leave the children with me??? I thought we had agreed I could care for them and teach them the ways of the Samurai.........LOL. Okay... maybe next time. Thank you so so much for allowing me to drag you around and show you the amazing history and culture of this amazing country. Oooooookini!! Kind regards Richard
