Private tour guide Toyoko

Toyoko M.

Osaka city, Osaka, Japan

Hello. I have been a licensed tour guide since February 2010.

My license is certified by the Japanese government. I have lived in Osaka since I was born. I have a lot of experience with walking tours not only in Osaka but also in Kyoto. I'll meet you at your hotel in Osaka or Kyoto. I can meet you at Osaka/Kobe cruise ship terminal, or JR Shin-Osaka Station.

I'm a friendly and courteous guide. I'm married and have two children.
I love to eat. Please let me know if there is anything you'd like to eat while you're in Osaka/Kyoto.

Depending on your preferences, I'll arrange the itinerary.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

A Recent Review of this guide

Toyoko was very accommodating when we had to change our itinerary a little. We enjoyed our tour with her and look forward to seeing her again! Mahalo, for showing us Japan...we would have never seen Japan without the help of Tours by Locals. We will definitely be using them again. Mahalo!!!

I'm not a driver. My tour is conducted using public transportation, like buses, subways and trains.
