Private tour guide Masahiko

Masahiko T.

Hirakata city, Osaka, Japan

Hello everyone! I'm Masahiko, a national licensed tour guide in English.

I live in Hirakata-city, where is convenient to Kyoto and Osaka.

I am very familiar with Kansai region (Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, and Kobe) and I can introduce interesting secret places in this region. Kyoto had been a capital city in Japan and the emperor's residence from 794 until 1868, so there are a lot of historically important places. Osaka is the largest city after Tokyo and it's one of the most popular tourist destinations in Japan. Nara is famous for the Todai-ji temple which is one of the largest wooden building and has the biggest bronze Buddha (Daibutsu) in the world. Kobe is a port city and has many beautiful places.

I had worked as an engineer in Japanese manufacturers. During the time, I had been to more than 30 countries and I had many wonderful experiences at various places all over the world. I realized I love travelling with all my heart. I hope we can share unforgettable experiences with you. So please join my tour.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Our guide was very friendly and his English was good. The day with him was enjoyable and we learnt a lot. Maybe, he could have explained some more details at the various points we visited
