“ Nara Osaka ”

Masako is a great guide to have. She contacted us beforehand to ask if we had any special requests and picked us up and dropped us off in our hotel. She is very knowledgeable about Nara and we had a wonderful day with her.

“ Excellent shopping tour and experience in Osaka ”

We thoroughly enjoyed our short 3 hour tour with Masako in Osaka. Masako arranged a short excursion to Osaka for a group of 4 adults traveling by Cruise Line. She met us at the Kobe pier as arranged; we instantly enjoyed her warm and friendly manner. She arranged for us to take a local train into Osaka from the Kobe pier which was a very nice experience. We requested a tour which included shopping in the local markets and the shopping district of Osaka given our limited time in port. She met every expectation. We were able to sample some wonderful food at the local market which was definitely worth the trip into Osaka. Masako made sure that we got back to our cruise ship on time for our departure. Thank you, Masako, for making our short visit in Osaka a most memorable one!
