If you pay extra 10000 yen (transportation fee ), I can also guide you in Hiroshima.

Osaka castle was originally built by Toyotomi Hideyoshi who unified Japan for the first time in the end of 16th century and destoried by Tokugawa Ieyasu who was the first shogun in Tokugawa shogunate and he rebuilt Osaka castle in the begininng of 17the century.
Osaka castle was burned down many times and the present main tower is the reprica, However the original great stone walls,moat ,gate and a few guard towers are remained.
Umed sky building was built in 1993. The hight is 173meters. The building is famous for the unique form and it is one of the most attractive
landmarks in Osaka. I am sure that you can ejoy the beautiful scenery of Osaka from the top floor. read more

“ Short walking tour of Kyoto ”

A group of 8 of us met up with Akira during our cruise ship stop in Kobe and took the train over to Kyoto for a walking tour of some of the cultural sites. Akira was prompt and met us ready to go right in the cruise ship terminal. We hopped on a train over to Kyoto and then a short bus ride to where we started our walk. Akira was very knowledgeable about the entire area and filled us in on the fine details of Kobe, Kyoto and Japan the entire time as well as answered any other questions we had along the way. We had a very enjoyable day and left with more knowledge of Japan and the culture than when we started - which is what travel is all about. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Akira!!


Dear Richard Thank you so much for your nice rating. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed Kyoto with me. I also enjoyed with a nice group like you. Thank you so much . Akira
