“ A Great Day Out In Osaka ”

Eight of us had an excellent day in Osaka with Kazuhiko who was a delight to be with. He was very informative and kept the day interesting and adapted our day as required. His English was good and his knowledge was excellent. He tailored a tour for our needs. We meet at our Hotel and we visited Sumiyoshi Shinto Shrine which was fascinating, then Osaka Castle where we saw Martial Arts competition, a good look round the Castle grounds and learned a lot about the History which Kazuhiko was very knowledge and interesting. We traveled by train between venues and which made it so much easier for us as he knew his way round. After our choice of lunch (sushi) we moved on to Kuromon Market for a tour. We found this experience an eye opener (in a nice way) with the amount of foods available and ... read more

Kazuhiko:

“ A day out in Kyoto ”

Kazuhiko was charming and engaging, he was well prepared and had lots of options for us. We would recommend taking taxis around Kyoto or you will spend a disproportionate amount of time on buses as the sights are located a fair distance from each other. There was lots to take in but we saw all the main sites, Imperial Palace, Kinkaku-ji Temple, Fushimi Inari Shrine and some ceramic shopping. He could have not been more helpful generally, and we would certainly recommend him.

Kazuhiko:

Dear Mr. Mark I appreciate your feedback. I’m very pleased that your nice couple enjoyed your tour. I had great time as well showing your couple around Kyoto. In order to save time, I made you walk quickly, and you spent much taxi charge. Sorry!! We visit Imperial Palace, Kinkaku-ji Temple, Fushimi Inari Shrine and ceramic center, Moreover, you were able to see Japanese wedding at Yasaka Shinto Shrine by chance. I sincerely hope this experience was memorable and you visit Japan again and if so I would be glad to guide you again. Thank you!! Please enjoy your tour in Japan!! Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto

Very good; got us around Kyoto like a pro. We chose to taxi around instead of buses. Limited time. Well worth my expense
