About

Hello, I’m Kazuhiko Goto. Please call me “Kazu”. I'm a national-licensed tour guide. I have a wife and 4 children.

I was born in Osaka city near Kyoto, although I have lived in many places across Japan. I used to work for multinational electric company and I traveled to many countries (U.S., Thailand, Hong Kong etc.) on business.

I have enjoyed guiding many foreign tourists in Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Hiroshima, Tokyo, Mt. Fuji etc. for many years.

During your tour, you can discover a rich Japanese history spanning about 2,000 years, learn about and experience profound Japanese arts (tea ceremony, flower arrangement etc.), feel the spiritual atmosphere of Buddhist temples or Shinto shrines, see a breathtakingly beautiful scenery of Mt. Fuji, bamboo forest, Japanese gardens etc..
Moreover, you can taste Japanese cuisine that each season has to offer (Sushi, Tempura, Soba or ramen noodle etc.).
You can get close to nature and feed wild deer or monkeys or even a build snowman in winter.

I’m sure that I can provide a splendid tour of Japan that will be a lasting memory for you to treasure.

Experience the mysteries of Japan with 5 senses !!
Your memorable tour awaits you.

Please feel free to contact me!!

“ Cheery blossom ”

We have been to many countries and had many guides before. However, Mr. Kazuhiko by far the best guide we ever had. Not because he took us to the best places and explained everything in detail. He of course did that. He is the best because he is caring, loving, most dedicated and responsible person. Truly a very good human being. I guess this too is Japanese tradition.

“ Osaka night food tour ”

Kazuhiro was one of the best guides we have ever had. We had an issue with my husband losing his wallet and he went over and beyond to help us He called our hotel and gave them the name of the restaurant with s map of location and even called the restaurant to see if we left behind. The food he selected was wonderful and showed great concern about our food allergies. Kazu spoke excellent English and we are so lucky to have him as our guide.

Very Good

“ Most memorable day in Kyoto ”

Kazuhico was a wonderful guide! He filled our day from early morning to dusk with monkey park, bamboo grove, the golden pavilion, temples, shopping and a great lunch. He is a kind gentleman with tremendous energy and a sincere desire to please. He was always looking for opportunities to take great pictures of us with our camera. He answered all out questions in excellent English and provided background information on the sights we visited. He also taught us how to use the bus, the train and he subway! We could not have had a better guide. We highly recommend him!
