What an amazing day!!! Koji is a great guide and very helpful. He took us to Osaka and explained to us the history of the city. He also took us around and made us feel like locals. We then went to Nara and again his knowledge and explanation was impressive. We really enjoyed our day and would recommend him as a guide 100%!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, I really appreciate your review on me. Thank you so much indeed. Koji
as new travellers to Japan our request was a personalized tour that would help us understand the Japanese way of life, the food and navigating the public transport, as an aside we mentioned we liked Japanese pottery. Koji understood what we were interested in and it seemed at every corner we turned there were more interesting points to explore. The pottery Street was a wonderful surprise. His English is perfect and he had a lovely sense of humour. Highly recommend Koji for a relaxed , informative tour

Our Osaka tour was great even in the rain.Koji is so personable & very aware of your needs.Your day is yours so if you want to do some shopping he is there to help you.There is a fair amount of walking, using public transportation. Having a Pasmo card makes it very easy.His English is excellent.We stored our luggage in train lockers & to get to Kyoto he accompanied us right to our hotel.Really went above & beyond. MJ -Canada

My parents had an amazing time. Thank you Koji for taking great care of them and making their trip memorable.
Thank you Koji for an amazing day in Osaka! We really enjoyed ourselves and found your knowledge about Japanese history very informative and interesting. You were great company and this experience was a highlight of our holiday. Thanks again!
We had a fantastic day out with Koji. He understood what we were interested in and took us to places we loved. He Recommended a great lunch spot, and assisted us with getting a table and how to get our meal. This was our second visit to Osaka and Koji has showed us so much more than we could have done ourselves. We loved how happy Koji was, keeping a big smile on all day!
Koji is warm, friendly and very personable. He catered for all we wanted to see and nothing was a problem. He knew so many local places and also a lot of history about Japan. You can definitely tell he loves his job and loves meeting new people and showing the sights and culture. He is so much fun and energetic, we thoroughly loved spending the day with him.

Koji was early and we were late. But he was very understanding. He said, " I am your guide and I am here to serve you. Wow! And so we had a great time with Koji. We were five adults and he tried his best to satisfy everyone's desires. We went around the Osaka Castle exited through the back to have lunch at this good ramen place. He took us shopping at Donkihote. He brought us to Shinsekai and Kurumon Market, places we really wanted to visit. He is someone you'd want to be with to bring you around. Great!
We had an excellent guide in Mr. Koji. We had a really wonderful day touring with him. Aside from sharing interesting information about Osaka's and Kyoto's histories, he also showed us places in Osaka and Kyoto we would have missed had we been on our own. We appreciated his kindness and his flexibility in our tour itinerary, his patience in teaching us how & where to take our train rides and his willingness to take our pictures in the places we visited. Thank you, Koji.

My mother and her friends really enjoyed their time with Koji. Very informative and helpful guide.
Excellent day with Koji. Most informative and enjoyable. Despite very poor weather, Koji had made it a very wonder day for us. Thank you.

Koji was quite simply fantastic! We had a long day on a Japanese holiday. He went the extra mile to purchase our tickets on the trains well in advance. He is knowledgeable and punctual. He was able to modify the itinerary as it was raining quite heavily to allow us to do indoor activities (Hiroshima museum) before outdoor activities such as Miyajima. This is the first of 3 days with Koji and we are so happy we found him!

Koji is the best. He was flexible, sensed what we liked and wanted to do, and accommodated that as we went through the day. He is also quite personable and fun to be with

Could not have found a better guide! I was unexpectedly ill but Koji saved the day and took my older teen son for the day on his own. They had a great time - a bit of history/culture and plenty of fun visiting manga shops and food markets.
Theresa EvansUnited States
I highly recommend Koji! He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He listened to what we wanted to do and he built a tour around it. He allowed us time to do things when we were very interested in a location. He also introduced us to several interesting areas in Osaka that we would never have known. Of all the tours we have done in our two weeks in Japan, this one was the best.
Highly recommended. We spent three days with Koji in Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. All days and activities were great, and he loves to drink Saki in the morning.

Koji was a real pleasure to be with. A very energetic and happy man with great people skills and knowledge of the area. We opted to have him show us Kyoto as that is where we were staying and even though we had a full day of rain, he made it fun and interesting. We highly recommend Koji.
Ron MirrUnited States
Koji was fantastic. He customized the itinerary to give us exactly what we were looking for. He stayed with us much longer than the allotted time. Great day!
Koji was absolutely brilliant, so good, he became a member of our family for the day!! We saw so much more of Osaka by using him, he adapted our day to suit us and our kids, we even went to a tucked away car museum (where many cars are actually for sale) which was for my benefit, Koji is also a car lover! Naturally we rate him a perfect 5 stars and we highly recommend him to others who are looking for that personal touch from a tour guide.
I did a 26 days trip to Asia, going through Japan, Korea and China, and this was the absolute highlight of the entire trip! Koji is the most impressive guide I've ever had the pleasure to meet, not only he has a lot of knowlegde but he is a pleasant person to be with. I really wanted to visit a dog cafe and as soon as he found that out he took me to one! Incredible guide!Thank you so much Koji!

We had a family of four with 2 teenagers, and we all really enjoyed Koji's tour of Osaka. He came prepared with a starting itinerary, but was very flexible in moving things around to accommodate some things we wanted to do. We highly recommend Koji as a tour guide.
Koji is a great tour guide. He helped us navigate through the city quickly which allowed us to spend quality time at the places we enjoyed the most. He was very accommodating and patient to any changes made during the tour and always ensured that his "guests" were his top priority.
