About

Hi, I'm Tokie.

I was born and grew up in Osaka, and I have lived in Osaka for 90% of my life. I like to show people around my city, not only famous sightseeing places but also local places where you can feel how real Osaka is.

I also travel a lot. I have traveled to Europe, South East Asia, North and Central America, and and so on. I always enjoy tours where I have a chance meet local people and enjoy an awesome experience. So I want to offer such tours here in Osaka !

My favorite
1. Local tours (Tenjin, Temma area is my specialized area)
2. Good food (sake as well. Local bar hopping tour is also available)
3. Cooking
4. Language and culture exchange (I can teach Japanese!)
5. Japanese calligraphy
6. Running (I have some marathon experiences.)
7. The beach (That's what I miss here in Osaka!)

Please contact me if you want to enjoy Osaka and Japan!

“ Very friendly and adaptable ”

Because we were unsure of subway Tokie met us and helped us but tickets and at end of tour did the same again, even going with us because we had to change trains. She was very knowledgeable about the area and we met many local people. If we come back to Japan we would live to be guided by Tokie.

TOKIE:

Hi Gavin ! Thank you for joining my tour and I'm happy that you liked my tour ! I'm looking forward to seeing you again in the future !

“ Fantastic day in Osaka ”

Tokie was superb. She took us around her own neighborhood showing us a shrine and some local shops, including a stamp workshop were we made our own stamps. In the evening she took us barhopping and we tried out local drinks and foods. We definitely got to experience some of the local flavor that we probably wouldn't have found on our own. Tokie is easy to talk to, knowledgeable and an experienced guide. I highly recommend her.

“ Funtastic Osaka ”

Tokie our guide was very nice, friendly, and accomodating. We had a great time in the Cup Noodles Museam, Osaka Castle and The Osaka Aquarium. The one day was short but enjoyable. Thank you Tokie!
