Yoriko is Fabulous. I booked her for 2 days (Kyoto). Our 2nd (April 29) in Osaka was better than day 1- no rain. We visited Osaka Castle, Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine, and lunch & free time in Dotombori area - among others. I had asked about finding a used kimono shop - after lunch Yoriko escorted me to one she had researched. It seems - just ask and she can deliver. Since it was Golden Week, she timed to avoid crowds and also experience them & gave hints for "best" photo ops. You won't be sorry with Yoriko.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maxwell, Thank you for your rating. I hope you enjoyed the atmosphere of local people of Osaka. Also did you enjoy dinner? Sincerely yours, Yoriko

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Victoria, Thank you very much for wonderful rating. I am sure you are back home now. It was a freezing day and I feel sorry for the missing glove of your mother. I am afraid but it was not found. I am sure, however, all of you enjoyed a day in Osaka with me. Sincerely yours, Yoriko

We had a great day in Osaka with Yoriko. She is very knowledgeable about the area and Japanese history/culture. She was instrumental in getting us situated to start the tour as we had disembarked from our ship earlier that morning. We highly recommend her for an excellent tour.

Thank you for staying with me. I am very proud to share precious moment of your family gathering in Japan. Arigato Gozaimasu! Yoriko
We had a wonderful day in Osaka, with our guide Yoriko. She was punctual, spoke very good English, and was very informative. We were a group of 4 people, and we utilised the public transport system to get around, and then walked around our various destinations. Yoriko was also very friendly, and was only too happy to accommodate any wishes that we had. I would thoroughly recommend Yoriko to anyone in need of a personal tour of Osaka.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ulrich, Thank you very much for giving me such wonderful comments. I am glad that I could share happy hours with all of you here in Osaka. I appreciate your understanding of our culture and tradition. Thank you for visiting us! With love, Yoriko

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Herbert, Thank you for your nice comment. I am glad you could enjoy cherry blossoms a little bit along with tasty food in Osaka. Thank you for coming to Japan. Yoriko
With the two days we spent with Yoriko touring around Osaka, Kyoto and Nara, we enjoyed every single moment with her. She was very flexible with our schedules - customizing it in a way that we were able to do and see exactly what we wanted. The best part for us was probably the restaurants she brought us to. The restaurants were very delicious and authentic. To sum it all up, Yoriko was a gracious and wonderful tour guide. Our trip was enjoyable and memorable because of her efforts.

Yoriko was an amazing tour guide. Even though we had problems with the cruise ship coming in late and on a different date than we had originally planned, Yoriko still made the tour happen. She is very knowledgable. It was an amazing day. I would highly recommend Yoriko to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for wonderful comments. I am glad that we could complete the tour in spite of the change of cruise schedule. I did enjoy your company and am so happy to have shared the wonderful time in Japan with your family. Love, Yoriko

Very nice lady. Quite quietly spoken so possibly better with a small party than a large group.
