What to Expect

Nagoya Highlights
Nagoya Castle has been a symbol of Nagoya over 400 years. It consists of the tower, palace and garden. The original building were burnt down in 1945 but they were reconstructed as it used to be. The gorgeous inside of the palace is overwhelming to visitors.
Atsuta Shrine
Atsuta Shrine is one of oldest shrines in Japan. It is located at the south of Nagoya, covered with thick forests. There are three camphor trees estimated over 1000 years old. Next to Ise Shrine, it is rated as the second important shrine. The legendary sword is enshrined inside.
Osu Kannon
The history of the temple dates back to the 12th century.
But it was moved to its current site in the 17th century.
The Kannon, a wooden statue, is said to be carved by Kobo Daish, Japan's the most important Buddha priest. It also contains very important classic texts. After visiting the temple, you may enjoy shopping in the neighboring shopping district. There are 1200 shops there.
Magome Post Town
Tsumago Post Town
About 400 years ago, there was "Nakasendo" national route covering 500 km between Tokyo and Kyoto.
People traveled along the route on foot for 12 - 16 days. There were 69 post towns. Most of them were lost but even today there are a few that retain the original scene. Magome and Tsumago are one of these. Here you can see the original Japan, different from those of Kyoto and Nara.

“ Outstanding tour of Kyoto ”

I simply can not say enough about Masaki and his skill as a tour guide. Not in a million years would we had been able to see so many beautiful sights in Kyoto without his ability to move us from place to place, purchasing entry tickets without hassle but also knowing the fastest ways in & out plus the timing of our arrivals & exits were spot on. Masaki & Steve had quite a long conversation about the Samari rock garden & breathing that we have continued to reflect upon. We also did some off the beaten path places that I loved but the absolute topper on Masaki’s resume was after the tour when I received 100 photos he took of us in Kyoto with his own camera. And may I say they are not only excellent photos but ones that I will treasure forever. I’m grateful for his touring skills & leadi... read more

It is a wonderful thing that you have a good memory in Kyoto. Please visit me again. Next time I take you in the norther part of Kyoto. See you. Masaki

“ Hiroshima Day Tour ”

Masaki was Awesome! He really lets us absorb and learn so much culture from our day in Hiroshima and Miyajima. My family really loved our time with Masaki and he was very enjoyable and easy to work with. Thanks Masaki for an enjoyable time!


Hi Trisha, Thank you for a wonderful review. Yes, it was a great day for me, too. I had some first experiences. Relaxed time and leisurely tours made me forget the time passing. Thank you again for sharing precious time with your family. Good luck in Japan!! Masaki

“ Gion and Philosophers Walk Kyoto tour ”

Masaki was a very helpful guide. Even before we started the tour with him, he gave us directions to get to Kyoto (as we were coming in on train) and helped me source a wheelchair for my Mum who needed it after she had a fall the day after she landed. He made the whole thing easier. I am glad we had him. He also provided in depth info about Kyoto through information that he put together in a booklet to make it more meaningful. And took heaps of photos of us. Thank you Masaki.


Hi Kirandeep, Thank you for a nice message. Very happy that you enjoyed Kyoto tour. Now you have already come back home. Hope your mother's recovery. Please say hello to all the members.

“ Excellent choice ”

We experienced a most relaxing yet educational day with Masaki, touring the sites of Uji, home of matcha. Because my husband’s mobility and energy was compromised, Masaki chose this outing for its length and flat terrain, plus he is very atuned to the history there. He was most patient with our challenges yet delivered a wonderful tour.
