Private tour guide Hide

Hide N.

Nabari, Mie, Japan

Hello. I am Hideki, Hide for short, a licensed English-speaking tour guide.

Born and raised in Osaka, I live in Mie prefecture (60 km from Osaka)now.
I have been engaged in guiding as a tourist guide for 10 years including the terms as a local volunteer guide.

So, I can show you not only the must-see places but as well, places the average tourist is likely to miss. I can also customize a tour to suit your preferences.

It is my pleasure to learn more about and introduce things Japanese to visitors from overseas.
I'm looking forward to meeting you.

A Recent Review of this guide

We definitely had a great time with Hide and enjoyed learning about the history of Osaka as well as taking in the popular sites. We kept a good pace and we were able to see everything on our itinerary that day. We walked nearly 17,000 steps which was fantastic. Kuromon market was a great place to have lunch and try many different types of foods. The okonomiyaki here was amazing and Hide found us a great spot to enjoy it.
