My wife and 25 year old son were touring Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Tokyo and Okinawa. We wanted a local person's perspective and guide of Osaka and landed on this tour. We were thrilled with the tour ...

Yuki is prepared and shows Osaka in a way we never would have experienced it.

Yuki is personable, funny, and obviously knowledgeable of all thinks Osaka/Japan.

As a world traveler, Yuki brings a wealth of knowledge of other countries and cities which brings a more informed perspective to his descriptions of Osaka/Japan.

This tour was one of our top highlights of our tour of mainland Japan and Okinawa.

Our tour took place on November 12, 2017.

Date of experience: November 2017

Me and my friend had an absolute ball. Rica was such a lovely and informative and fun guide full of interesting information. We really felt like we experienced a more authentic side of Osaka and it was fun to try different food.

We took the tour with Yuki on the 18th of December and we are so glad that we did, it was an amazing insight into the real Osaka food culture and both me and my partner agreed it has been the best activity of our trip thus far.

Yuki speaks perfect/fluent English and is extremely knowledgeable about his city and has a genuine interest about the people on his tour and their culture, which is very difficult to find on most other tours around the world these days.

Thank you Yuki, we’ll definitely be recommending this tour to friends and family who plan on visiting Osaka in the future. It was an excellent experience.

I joined Tokie on this evening tour as Yuki was not available. Tokie was a larger than life and extremely welcoming lady. We had a brilliant evening tasting food, sampling sake and lots of traditional snacks and then a delicious and slightly scary chicken meal including sashimi! As a Brit this was a mind boggling experience for me but I’m glad I did it, and there was plenty of deliciously cooked chicken to eat too!!

Thank you so much Tokie for giving us such a fabulous night in Osaka, great company, great insight into the country and wonderful food and drink. 10/10!

This tour is a a must for the start of a trip to Osaka. Kevin gave us some background on Osaka first, going through some historical elements and pointing out quirky aspects to shops and the gave us an insight to Osakan's (is that even a word?) lifestyle. Kevin took us to places that i would have never found on my own and introduced us to some wierd and wonderful dishes. It was a great night, we even went to a little speak easy whisky bar which was a lot of fun. Thanks Kevin
