Very Good

“ Entertaining guide. Willing to customise ”

Richard was very entertaining and also responsive to changes and customisation. His interests are varied and so makes for interesting conversations. A student of Buddhism, he has strong views about the topic. His passion for the preservation of Japanese culture is evident. My sons enjoy learning from him.

“ Oh what a night... Fabulous Sake Tour in Osaka ”

Our sake tour through Namba in Osaka was the highlight of our time in Japan. For my son and nephew in particular (both in their late 20's) - it was the first time they felt like they moved from being a "tourist" to truly being enmeshed in the local culture. Richard does a phenomenal job of bridging the divide, bringing you to tiny back alley Namba bars, educating you on sake, but most importantly, allowing you to gain access to the people (from the bar owners to the patrons) in a way that you wouldn't ever experience on your own - unless of course you were both fluent in Japanese and had lived in this area for many years. (Note, I've done plenty of local private tours in Japan over the years, and this is a unique experience to gain such access!) Given that this was a Saturday night in busy Dotonbori, to say the night was lively doesn't quite do it justice:) We ended the evening in a small karaoke bar where the night moved from simply magical to riotous. Thank you Richard for an unforgettable evening.

“ All around Kyoto ”

Richard could not have been a more friendly, knowledgeable, customer oriented guide ,during my time with him. He is very punctual, and adaptable to the needs of his guests. See the real Kyoto with someone who can do the everyday tourist type itinerary to the behind the scenes of what Kyoto us really like. Highly recommend his services.
