“ Not what we had hoped for. ”

Apart from being met at the port & delivered safely to the airport, the day was very disappointing. We did not visit the famous castle, had great difficulty in keeping up with our guide & felt it was a very expensive & unsatisfying exercise.

Nobuyuki:
Hello. Thank you for your comment. I will take your advice into my future improvement. Best regards, Nobuyuki

“ Kyoto, Nara & Osaka ”

We spent 4.5 days with Nobuyuki seeing many of the sites in Kyoto, Nara & Osaka. Nobuyuki was a great guide, full of interesting historical insights, and always ready for a joke or good laugh. He speaks English well and most importantly varies the things that you are going to see or do so that you don't get bored or tired. Highly recommended.

Nobuyuki:
Thank you very much for your comment, Hugh. I really enjoyed your company and hope to see you again somewhere in the world, possibly in Europe or in Japan again. I hope you will have spent the rest of your tour days safe and with much satisfaction. I wish many happy days to both of you. Thank you again. Nobuyuki

“ Osaka Tour with Osakajo Castle ”

Nobuyuki met us promptly at our hotel and guided us on a tour of Osaka highlights as listed, with informative commentary reflective of his knowledge and passion for the culture and history of the city. We highly recommend Nobuyuki.

Nobuyuki:
Dear Randie and Sandie Thank you very much for your comment on my tour. I am glad you liked every street I showed you during our trip. In addition to that you were very interested in historical and cultural sides of the Osaka city and how the Japanese are living based on the traditional customs and food and attraction, etc. I hope someday we will meet again somewhere in the world and I try to be always smarter. Thank you again. Best regards, Nobuyuki

“ Tour of Osaka ”

Nobuyuki provided an excellent tour of Osaka. He was very obliging and knowledgable. We arrived at Kobe by ship and Nobuyuki met us at the port and assisted us with taxis and train to Osaka where he then helped us store our luggage and exchange our JR pass. Once sorted, he took us to so many places including Osakajo Castle and we experienced a traditional lunch of Okonomiyaki. We had a great day and at the end of the tour, Nobuyuki made sure we returned to Osaka station and were in the right place for our train. His assistance with negotiating the train system & tickets, etc certainly helped us in the next few days when we were travelling on our own.

Nobuyuki:
I appreciate so much your having written the review on my tour. After much walking we could arrive and see the good places and after a little bit of waiting we could have a good lunch at Dotonbori. I hope we had a precious time together and that this experience will lead to another visit by you to our region of Japan. Thank you again and I wish you good holidays.

Nobuyuki was a very informative tour guide. He always had interesting facts about the sites we visited. He was very patient with our group of five. He was very concerned we stayed together I highly recommend him

Nobuyuki:

The Osaka city is culturally divided in two areas, namely north side and south side of the region. The southern side of the region reminds people of fresh food and comedy theaters and culture of a long tradition. By joining the tour you can enjoy the old Asian Tastes combined with the passionate young people trying to become the center of the whole culture of Japan.
