Hi. my name is Byung. you may feel my name unusual. Yes, I came from Seoul, Korea 20 years ago. Since that time I have been living in Osaka, so, Osaka is the second hometown for me. I am also a licensed tour guide with a car(TOYOTA HIACE VAN) which is acceptable 8 passengers. Of course, the carfare is free(no charge). Usually Nara, Kyoto and Kobe around the Osaka are in what we call Kansai region(south-western half of Japan). Nara was the first capital with Yamato government since 4 century, and Kyoto was a more than one thousand year's capital from 8 century to 19 century before moving it to Tokyo(today capital). This long historical background and the well management of protecting historic sites could make Kyoto have 17 World Cultural Heritage sites. While Kyoto was a stage of the culture of the nobility and royal power, Osaka have been developing an unique common people's culture, especially a food culture. Today Dotombori in center of Osaka city is worldly famous as a food culture street. For this reason Osaka has a nickname of 'World of Kitchen'. Because Most of the wonderful tourist spots in Kansai are within about one hour distance including Kansai international airport, you can be touring diverse sites for shorter days. Come on! Now, exciting and amazing attractions and the unique Japanese hospitality are waiting for you. Thank you.
안녕하십니까. 오사카에 거주하고 있는 전국통역안내사 현병기입니다.일본국의 역사는 나라(奈良), 교토(京都), 오사카(大阪)에서 출발했습니다. 일본은 오랜세월 투쟁하는 역사속에서도 토착신앙이라 할 수 있는 신도(神道)에 대륙에서 전해진 불교를 융합하고 섬나라의 보수적인 정서를 조화시켜 일본만의 독특한 와(和)문화를 발전시켜왔습니다. 이 세곳은 간사이공항과 고베(神戸)를 포함하여 자동차로 1시간 거리내외에 있습니다. 이곳의 명소를 가이드와 함께 탐방하면서 그 역사적 의미를 이해하고 일본문화의 과거와 현재의 접점을 살펴보는 것이 고적지 관광의 재미입니다.

My inlaws are Korean and don't speak english well. Mr. Byung was the perfect tour guide! His English, Korean, and Japanese are perfect and he was incredibly considerate of my husband's 80-year-old grandmother. He was a safe driver and very knowledgeable of the sites we visited. He suggested a lovely, affordable place for lunch and even though we were late getting back from our tour he didn't seem to mind and didn't rush us at our last stop. Overall, Mr. Byung's tour was an excellent, comfortable way for my family to experience Japan. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Byung as your guide.
I am so flattered for your praise, my guests are my family. God bless you, God bless your family. Thank you.
