We were a group of 4 visiting Osaka with tour guide Yoshiro, this was our second day with him. He is friendly, has so much energy, loves his work and has an answer to all our questions. He is a foodie and knows everything about good food and good sake. We left Osaka wanting to know it even better. We saw so much in such little time (cruise ship visit was too short) We will come back to Japan and we will contact you again to continue to learn more about Osaka. Thank you Yoshiro!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for giving me five-star rating and praising me to the skies. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour of Osaka as well. You tasted some Japanese food, but we have more and more typical local food as well. I wish to express my deep appreciation to you for your consideration. Thank you for giving me a pleasant memory. I hope our paths will cross again. Smiles, Yoshiro

We visited Kobe during our Cruise in Japan, and we had a wonderful visit. Yoshiro came and picked us up at the cruise terminal. Yoshiro is very friendly, loves his work and made our trip unforgettable. Thank you Yoshiro for your humor, good energy and all your explanations about the history of Kobe. Our Kobe beef dinner was the best, and your knowledge about Sake and explaining all the differences made us understand and appreciate it more. We recommend Yoshiro to everyone visiting Kobe.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your giving me five-star rating. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed Kobe beef and came to like real Japanese beef. I also enjoyed dinner with you, thank you so much. Next time please try other beef dish, too, like sukiyaki, shabu-shabu, and if you can afford to enough time for meals, why don’t you try Kaiseki cuisine ? Thank you for giving me a pleasant memory. I hope our paths will cross again. Best regards, Yoshiro

What a wonderful way to experience Nara, we had an amazing day with Yoshiro who was a wealth of knowledge. We were able to see everything this day on our itinerary including having multiple opportunities to feed the deer (200 yen for one pack of crackers). We walked 14,000 steps on this day which was comfortable and we moved at a good pace to see all the highlights including the temples and shrines in the area.

We really enjoyed our tour with Yoshi. Despite 100 degree temps, Yoshi guided us through crowds to visit top temples and shrines. He gave us advice on how to spend our additional days. He is a foodie at heart and also suggested top restaurants that would not break the bank. I highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for giving me five-star rating and excellent comment. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour of Kyoto and tempura restaurant. Thank you for giving me a pleasant memory and learning a new phrase using the word, bank.

Yoshiro was an outstanding guide in Osaka. He took my family on a full day tour of Osaka on our first day in Japan, and his help stretched well beyond the one day. Not only did he show us all around the city, he also made good suggestions for what to visit and where to eat in the days after our tour. We even put his knowledge about Kyoto to work as he gave us a list of recommended restaurants there. Hire Yoshiro if you like eating, walking, and taking public transportation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for giving me five-star rating and praising me to the skies. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour of Osaka and its food, such as sushi and tempura.

Mr Yoshiro is a great guide - we took a day tour with him and even though the weather was bad (it rained almost all day) - we had a great time time him in the covered streets and markets of many parts of Osaka. He's very knowledgable and provided many helpful pieces of information for our future use.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your giving me five-star rating and praising me to the skies. Due to the heavy rain, all of you got dripping wet. The rainy days will last in a few weeks, so please prepare for rainy gears. Thank you for giving me a pleasant memory.

Yoshiro was a great guide for our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. He is very knowledgeable in not only the history and culture of Kyoto, but also Japan in general.

Yoshiro has a wonderful sense of humour which led to a very enjoyable day.

We really enjoyed Yoshiro's food-focused day tour in Osaka. Yoshiro was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable about all things food-related in Osaka. We visited several markets and several restaurants during our day and learned a huge amount as the day went by. Yoshiro helped us find some particular kinds of food we wanted to try and places we wanted to see and along the way showed us many interesting places in Osaka, some of which were off the beaten path. A great way to spend a day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your giving me five-star rating and praising me to the skies. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the foodie tour of Osaka. Tenma (the place I took you before Umeda ) is a little bit too local for you. There are many other interesting off the beaten path in Osaka, so please come back to this town in the future if it’s possible. Thank you for giving me a pleasant memory. I hope our paths will cross again. Best regards, Yoshiro
