“ Amazing 2 days in Kyoto ”

What an amazing experience to have someone who could explain Japan and Kyoto from a western and eastern perspective. His knowledge from food, to history, and mysticism were a highlight of our trip to Japan. Every place and experience was better than the last. Place yourself in his hands and enjoy. We look forward to returning to explore more of Japan and Richard would have to be a part of that! Highly recommend.

Richard:

You want 'more of Japan' with me??? Oh no, you will be in trouble! LOL Thank you so much for everything and I am so happy you enjoyed yourselves. I hope you guys come again and let me take care of you on your next Japan trip! Kind regards, Richard

“ Tour of Kyoto and Osaka ”

My wife and I were visitng Japan in the very hot summer months of July/August. We had the pleasure of doing a single day tour of Kyoto and the next day a tour of Osaka with Richard. He was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of each city. Touring with Richard is like touring with a friend that you have known for years and can causually speak with. He is also someone that can show you all the local ******* that you would never venture into on your own. With Richard having lived in Japan for several decades he is familiar with the locals in each city making the tour seemless. Thank you Richard for proving us with a wonderful experience.

Richard:

Thank you guys for coming and sorry for the heat. I appreciate your kindness and for allowing me to drag you around Osaka!!!! Kind regards, Richard

The tour with Richard was wonderful. We learned many new things about Japan and the culture. Our boys especially enjoyed it and bonded with Richard. He was great with kids. Thank you for a great tour.

Richard:

I really do not understand why you did not leave the children with me??? I thought we had agreed I could care for them and teach them the ways of the Samurai.........LOL. Okay... maybe next time. Thank you so so much for allowing me to drag you around and show you the amazing history and culture of this amazing country. Oooooookini!! Kind regards Richard

“ Great tours of Osaka And Kyoto ”

We did multiple temples and learned deep insights into the Buddhist teaches. We had amazing food and beverages at all meals that allowed westerners to enjoy the real tastes of Kyoto and Osaka. He knows the Saki well and provided a great introduction. We learned a lot about the farmhouses, the castles, and about some of the wonderful food and shopping locations in the two cities. He was lots of fun and allowed us an opportunity to learn to cook local foods as well. We also saw the new Mitsubishi regional jet factory. Excellent guide!

Richard:

Thank you so much for everything. I'm glad James found his footing in Japanese food and he was a real trooper to try everything. I hope you make it around town to all the places I showed you, let me know if we have forgotten something. I do apologize for the heat. Hope we all lost a little bit aw thank you so much for everything. I'm glad James found his footing in Japanese food and he was a real trooper to try everything.
