Hello! My name is Kaori.
When I was young I was interested in tourism.
I was studying and working as tour conductor around Kanto area in Japan.
I lived abroad from my early 20s to mid 30s.
Australia, Taiwan, Central America, Great Britain, Spain and Italy.
Now I came back and live in Osaka where I was born.
The reason why I applied for the tour guide is because I was pleased when I guided my foreign friends around Japan.
Me personally love traveling a lot.
Especially trekking in the mountains and MTB trip by myself!
I’ve done El Camino De Santiago in Spain 3times!
Camino francés, Vía de la plata, Camino Norte.
I’ve done Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, too.
I’ve travelled around Morocco, Greece and Italy by MTB :)
I love adventure!
I love to look up sightseeing informations and listen to the story of travelers!
In japan I also lived in several different prefectures such as Osaka, Nara, Wakayama, Tokyo, Kanagawa.
I might be able to guide you not only popular touristic sites but also to local hidden sights!
Please focus things what you like and want!!
I promise to do my best to organize a tour that is consistent with your interests!
Thank you for paying attention for my self-introduction.
I’m looking forward to see you soon.

Great guided tour by Kaori for my wife and I and our two cruising buddies. We wanted a day around Osaka in which we saw the sights and travelled by local means, saw the people, their life and city. We went to Osaka Castle and surrounding area, had a typical style Osaka lunch and returned to our ship in Kobe. Great day.
We had a great time for 2 days with Kaori. She is knowledgable, funny and incredibly personable! We cant recommend her enough! Thanks Kaori!
Kaori was an amazing guide! We hired her for 4 days to tour my husband, 15 year old son and I around Osaka and the neighbouring cities. She spent time upfront to understand what our interests were and what we were hoping to learn and do while in Japan. She then put together tours that hit the nail on the head. She is very knowledgeable, fun and related well to all three of us, making every day incredibly enjoyable. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide. 5 stars all the way.
I had a great day in Kyoto. I truly enjoyed walking through the area, visiting the temples and learning the shintoism and japanese culture, tasting the Japanese food and drinks. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. Kaori is such a warm personality, highly motivated and flexible guide. A true sample of excellent tour guide. Many thanks to Kaori and I recommend Kaori to everyone..

I wish you will come back and explore Japan more and more!! Please let me know if you have chance! Many thanks!! Kaori
