Yoshiro

Osaka-city, Osaka, Japan

I am a 3rd generation native Osakan and professional government licensed tour guide.

I have guided visitors around many areas and 35 Prefectures of Japan. I am especially experienced in guiding tours of Kyoto, Nara, Kobe, Himeji and my hometown of Osaka. I have a lot of information about these cities from the local perspective. I'd love to show my guests the hidden gems that not all tourists get to experience.

In addition to non-traditional tourist attractions, I will also guide you to top-rated tourist attractions, such as World Heritage sites, iconic landmarks, picturesque Japanese gardens, historic spots and Japanese cuisine restaurants. These experiences can also include a mixture of hidden secret places where only locals visit. Depending on how much time you have in Japan, I can advise you on how to get around and provide options for exploring on your own. I am able to customize the tour experience you want, whether this be your first time to Japan or your tenth time.

I have an enthusiastic and warm personality. I also pride myself on having an engaging sense of humor. I deliver high quality customized tours to meet your needs and share my knowledge and passion about the charm of Japan. I love touring and meeting guests from all walks of life, sharing who I am, and sharing my country with guests.

It is my experience and belief that your smile is of the utmost priority. I pride myself in making every tour fun and interesting.

Please check my availability status before asking me of my tour to save your precious time.
My availability often changes due to the timing of previous engagement.

I look forward to being your guide and helping you find inspiration ㏌ Osaka, Kyoto, Kōbe and Nara.
