Best tour guide ever! If he couldn't answer a question on the spot he found the answer and sent it to us. He entertained and educated us all at the same time. I feel like I got an insight into the Japanese culture and history.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roger, Thank you very much. I am finally overcoming my cold now. I’m glad you enjoyed your time in Japan. Hope you found a perfect knife for your wife. Have a great year! All the best, Ichi

Best tour guide ever! (and I have had a few). Ichi answered all our questions, even if research were required. He entertained and educated us. He carries a bag with pictures and explainatory materials he was friendly and willing to adapt to my slower walking. He even sent us some photo's of the day. I feel like I know Osaka now.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roger, A Happy New Year! Thanks very much for your comments. Sorry I was not in my best condition on the day. Chíharu, the restaurant owner I took you on your last evening in Osaka felt sorry she wasn’t able to speak to you directly in English. The very best of everything for you and for your son for 2020! best regards, Ichi

Date: Dec 12/19

We spent 4 days in Japan and visited 6 of its amazing cities: Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Kobe, Hiroshima, and Miyajima. Our tour guide Toichi (Ichi) was amazing and exceptional. His warm personality, flexibility, excellent knowledge of the culture and history of these cities made our trip truly memorable and enlightening. Overall, our tour was super great. We would highly recommend Itchi to anyone visiting Osaka and the neighboring cities. He is a fantastic guide & definitely the highlight of our tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pearl and Jerry, Thank you very much for taking a time for writing the wonderful review. It was my pleasure to guide you around Kansai region. I too had a wonderful time having an opportunity getting to know you throughout our four days together. Have a beautiful holiday season and hopefully we’ll have another chance to see each other in the future. By the way, key rings are on the way! Lots of Love, Ichi

So much fun , knowledgeable with boundless energy. Help me to buy reasonable souvenirs, was always on time. He took us all over Osaka and was totally flexible while we changed our minds to see different attractions, . Would definitely have him guide us again!! 5 stars!! the Gillman's

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna, Thanks very much for your overwhelming comments. I enjoyed spending a day with you, too, but I’m sorry to make you walk a long distance to the point that your butt was dragging! Hope we will have another chance to meet up in the future. All the best, Ichi

Itchi showed us around Osaka riding on trains and subways very efficiently. We first went to the Sky Tower, Osaka Castle, Shitennoji Temple and Dotonbori street. I would have liked to spend more time on Dotonbori street for shopping and lunch. Next time...

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Catherine, Thanks very much for your comments. I am sorry we didn’t have enough time in Dotombori. Hope the rest of your trip was adventurous and exciting! best regards, Ichi

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer, Thanks very much for rating me *****! It was very nice of you to open the window and say hello to me today while I was doing Pokemon GO! I was surprised to see you coming back so early from Kyoto. You probably were fed up with rains and didn’t see anything??? Hope you enjoyed the day somehow anyway. Bon voyage!

Toichi is everything you want in a guide. Knowledgeable,energetic and funny.More importantly he was attentive to the individual needs of his clients. He adapted our route so that it was less demanding on one of us who developed a walking problem. He was a highlight of our trip to Japan

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sidney, Thank you very much for your overwhelming comments on my tour of Osaka. I enjoyed spending a day with you and your wife along with two friends of yours who showed talents in writing Japanese! Hope the rest of your cruise trip in Japan and South Korea will be exciting and fun and more than anything else, have a great life!

Our guide, Toichi, was excellent. We had some very specific needs and requests and he graciously accommodated every one. He had extensive knowledge of history and culture, and even found us a gorgeous yarn store. We highly recommend Toichi for tours in Osaka.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, Thank you very much for your comments. Sorry it took me a while for me to understand your specific needs. We had a very big typhoon going through Japan and some of my tours were cancelled because of that. I hope you and your mother enjoyed the rest of your cruise, and you are happy with the yarns you bought in Japan!

Toichi is an excellent and personable guide. His English is first rate. He customised the tour to suite our requirements and was able to answer any question we gave him which for first timers to Osaka was important. You know it has been a good day when at the end you say "where has the day gone". Very much recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alan, Thank you very much for your nice comments! I went back to Chinatown and ate some dumplings with a bottle of Asahi Super Dry. You would have enjoyed joining me!!! Hope the rest of your trip will be sound and fun.

We liked Ichi so much we decided to tour Kyoto as well with him as well, he met us at our hotel making it super easy for us, & not having to worry about "how" to get to where we were going was a big relief & it allowed us to focus on the tour, absorbing the culture and history of Kyoto. We saw so many amazing sites & had a wonderful time with a wonderful guide. We have been on many tours with many guides & Ichi rates right up at the top of that list. He truly is a gem of a guide. We highly recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris and Karen, Thank you very much for your overwhelming comments. I two enjoyed spending two days in Osaka and Kyoto with you, though I hoped it wasn’t as scorchingly hot as it was! Wishing you do all the things you wanted to do in Japan and good luck with your new career, too!

Toichi (Ichi) was the perfect host for our tour of Osaka! I am so glad that we decided to tour with him, his English is great and he is very easy going and friendly. We met Ichi at the train station where he was waiting on us with a sign which made it so easy, this set the tone for the day as we navigated around Osaka. We saw all the sites that we wanted to see & Ichi made sure we learned much more about the history and culture than we would have on our own. Skip the big, crowded tours and book with Ichi!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris, Thank you very much for your kind review. If the tour was enjoyable, the half of the success comes from you and your lovely wife. You were a very easy-going couple and you didn’t complain walking a long distance! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Japan.

Toichi was a wonderful guide, we saw so many places in Kyoto in one day, he explained the history and answered all of our questions. Our 13 and 9 year old daughters enjoyed it, he was very patient and flexible with their needs to take breaks and he kept the tour fun and entertaining for them. We recommend Toichi.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alper, Thank you very much for taking a time to write a review of the tour. I had a good time spending a lovely day with your family, too. Hope you had a meaningful day in Hiroshima, and hope you can do all the things you wanted to do for the rest of your stay in Japan.
