About

Hi, I'm Takashi. I was born in Kyoto and grew up in the Kansai area including Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka.
I mainly guide you around the Kansai area.

I'm trying to make new tours everyday, but in Kansai are there are so many places worth visiting, such as Fushimiinai shrine which is famous for its thousands of red Torii gates, Kinkakuji temple (the golden pavilion), Kiyomizudera temple, sanjusangendo temple which is famous for 1,001 statues of Buddha, Todaiji temple which has the great statue of Buddha, Osaka castle, and so on. We really have so many attractive places!

Therefore I can arrange the tours I've already made to fit your requests or I can make a new tour just for you. If you have some places you would like to visit or something you would like to do, please let me know. We can make out the best tour for you!

I'm looking forward to your message.

Takashi was very flexible and was able to meet me and my son earlier than planned as we were feeling tired and jet lagged. He took us on a nice stroll around the Gion area and showed us the highlights. He was helpful with background information of the area and helped maneuver us around the crowds and took some photos for us. Lastly, he showed us a local restaurant per our request that served a local dish. Thank you Takashi!

Takashi:

Hello Nancy, Thank you for the review! I'm very happy to know you enjoyed my tour. And thank you for the chocolate. It was so nice! Takashi

Takashi was a very good guide, he showed us some interesting sights in Kyoto which we wouldn't have seen without him. He was very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely recommended him as a tour guide.

Takashi:

Hello, Anne Thank you for your review. I'm happy to know you enjoyed my tour. I hope you enjoy the rest of your travel in Japan(^^)

Takashi provided a good quick and informative overview of Kyoto on our first visit. Due to time taken for 5 yr old to also walk the tour was flexible enough to add an extra hour to cover off local highlights of Kyoto. Great base to get bearings.

Takashi:

Thank you for your review. I'm very happy to know you enjoyed my tour. I hope you could enjoy your travel after Kyoto too. Thank you again for taking my tour (^^)
