I was born in Osaka, and studied in Kyoto when I was a university student. Now I live in Shiga near Lake Biwa, Japan's biggest freshwater lake.
I can guide you mainly in Kansai region, including Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Kobe, and Shiga. I've been working as a professional sightseeing Taxi driver in Kyoto for over 5 years. Usually, we use public transportation systems, but in some tours, I would use my complimentary vehicle to make your tour enjoyable and effective.
Well, one of my hobbies is outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and kayaking. So I can also take you to some areas where you can enjoy Japan's unique nature.
Let's go and enjoy together!!
A Recent Review of this guide
Koichi was a wonderful tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and genuinely excited to show us as much as possible in one day. He was also very flexible as we made multiple changes in the fly. We really enjoyed our day very much.
