Tokie our guide was very nice, friendly, and accomodating. We had a great time in the Cup Noodles Museam, Osaka Castle and The Osaka Aquarium. The one day was short but enjoyable. Thank you Tokie!

“ Osaka Market Tour ”

Tokie was fantastic. She met us at our hotel, we caught the train to the markets and she pointed out different food produce along the way- we sampled what we felt like buying and learnt a lot about different cultural customs and foods. After our tour she even sent sake bar recommendations and places to go out should we ever return. I was quite sick on the day and Tokie was sensitive to this so she made sure to keep checking if I was alright and what I felt like I could handle!

“ Awesome flexibility & conversation ”

Tokie was the guide for my parents while I had to work in Japan. My parents' favorite day of the trip was with Tokie - she was very accommodating with their schedule, adjusted accordingly, and had a great conversation the whole time with them. Thank you so much, Tokie - looking forward to being able to join the tour next time I'm in town.
