Overview

I would like to guide you Matsumoto called little Kyoto. The typical scenic spots as the castle town of Matsumoto are the spectacular Matsumoto Castle, the Former Kaichi School, Timepiece Museum, Nawate dori shopping avenue with an old-style atomosphere, and Matsumoto City Museum of Art.

What to Expect

You can see the oldest fivefold, six-storied among existing donjons in ]apan. Inside the black castle, You see a multitude of ancient artifacts including various weapons and elaborate armors.

The former Kaichi School is one of the oldest elemetary schoools in japan. It is a mix of Japanese and Western styles of architecture, and remains a designated symbol of the Meiji Era civilization.

Nawate-dori Shopping avenue is also called a frog street. The street represents the image of about 400 yeard ago. The avenue is lined with nearly 50 toy, antique, mom-and-pop candy stores.

You enjoy watching old moving clocks in the Matsumoto Timepiece Museum.

In Matsumoto City Museum of Art, you can enjoy watching the works of Yayoi Kusama both outside and inside the museum. In particular the "Red Pumpkin" in Naoshima is very popular as her work.

“ Excellent day in Kyoto! ”

Hideo is very organized and knowledgeable! He met us in the lobby of our hotel and we spent about 5.5 hours together. He knew quite a bit about the history of Kyoto and Japan in general and answered all of our questions. It was very hot, but we managed quite nicely as there were enough times we were in a cooler areas. His English, while not like a native speaker's, was perfectly fine. We had no trouble understanding or communicating. We did provide lunch, but it was our pleasure to have Hideo as our guest. He made the day very enjoyable!

Hideo:

“ A wonderful day in Osaka ”

Prior to the trip, we had many email exchanges with Hideo. He answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. Since we were coming from Kyoto, we met at the Shin-Osaka train station and started our day. The first stop was Osaka Castle. We enjoyed the structural features Hideo pointed out, and he showed us several pictures of the castle in spring when cherry blossoms are blooming. He showed us the best spot to have our pictures taken and patiently explained the historical backgrounds of the castle. The trip to Dotonbori was fun, and Hideo reserved a restaurant where we enjoyed okonomiyaki. He helped us ordered the right amount of food for the five of us, and it was absolutely delicious. Hideo took his time for us to visit the Umeda Sky Building and patiently pointed out the im... read more

Hideo:

I guided you Osaka Castle, Dotonbori, Doguyasuji (Kitchen utensil street), Kuromon Market (one of the three major markets in Japan) and Umeda Sky Building. Lastly I showed you a rare water clock at Osaka station. I'm sure you could enjoy your trip of Japan. I hope to see you again. I wish you and your family every happiness. Thank you, Summer.

“ Day tour of Hiroshima and Miyajima with Hideo ”

We loved touring with Hideo! He was so polite and so accomodating to whatever we wanted to do and see. He was extremely helpful with planning the full day for us and helping us with staying on schedule so we could see all that we had planned. He went above and beyond and even helped us with details of booking the train to get to our next destination of Koyasan. Very pleased in all with our tour and day with Hideo and would greatly recommend him to anyone for this tour. Thank you Hideo!

Hideo:
