Miwako met us at our hotel with a sign and was so thoughtful about our trip. We only had about 6 hours, so she had carefully planned out our agenda so we could maximize our time in Osaka. She had a great suggestion to get a weekend/holiday subway pass and that saved us thousands of yen. She really knew the history of the area and was so kind to me and my family. There were several times when she talked to the merchants for us and secured better deals than we would have on our own. Again, such a great day in Osaka with a wonderful guide!
Dear Ms. Ambre Thank you so much for having taking part in my tour and showing a great interest in Osaka. Also, thank you so much for your sweet compliment. I'm reminiscing you, your mother, friend and son. All of you are so lovely and kind not only to me but also other foreign visitors and shop and restaurant clerks. When we meet up, you came to me in full smile and took pictures with me. At the moment I was so happy to be blessed with such lovely guests as you. I'm impressed with your son's knowledge about Japanese history as well. I'm glad to know you enjoyed the tour and soul food in Osaka. Next time you will try Kushikatsu, which are deep-fried skewers. I hope I will meet you again. Thank you so much again for giving me a wonderful opportunity to have guided you. Fr... read more
