“ 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!

Dear Paul Thank you very much for your warm review! I’m very happy to hear that. It's very nice meeting both of you and your friends. Sharing the time with all of you was so enjoyable and memorable for me! Actually, I really miss all of you. I hope I can see you again in the future. Thank you very much and please take care of yourself. Sincerely, Mako
