Hello. My name is Ryota. Please call me "Ryo" for short. I'm a government-licensed tour guide-interpreter. Soon after I was born in chiba prefecture, I was taken to Kansai region where I grew up. I love music, history, and the Japanese culture, but science is not my cup of tea. I'll pull out all the stops to lead you to a deep insight into the Japanese cultural aspect like the difference between a buddhist temple and a shinto shrine and the Japanese way of thinking. I assure you that my guiding will knock your socks off. You can take my word for it.
Hi, I am Saki! I was born in Awaji Island. I used to live in Hiroshima and Vancouver. And now I live in Osaka! I enjoy it here, cause there are a lot of nice places such as Osaka castle park, good restaurants, cafes, and Izakayas (Japanese pubs). I would like to go there with you guys. I’m sure we will have a good time. I am looking forward to seeing you in Osaka, and having a wonderful time together! See you soon!
Hello everyone! I’m Masumi. I grew up in Osaka and lived on the Gold Coast in Australia.
I love nature, city life, temples, shrines, delicious food, and Japanese sake. I really like talking with people from other countries. Osaka is a lively, gourmet and historic city. The locals are friendly. I would like to introduce you amazing places that you would want to tell others about. Enjoy Osaka! I’m excited about meeting you.
Hi, there, I’m Yumi! I grew up in Nara, which is a small prefecture next to Osaka, and used to live in Australia for a few years. I’ve been really keen on traveling around the world and meeting new people. So, I’d love to talk with you and enjoy every moment together here in Osaka. Even though Osaka isn’t my hometown, I used to work here for 5 years and it's where I spent my early and mid 20’s. That’s why I have lots of my favorite things which I’d like to recommend you! I’d say you can have brilliant and memorable experiences with me in this exciting and lively city! I’m looking forward to seeing all of you guys :)
I was born and raised in Osaka, and have also lived in the Philippines and Canada for two years. I’ve been to many Asian countries to find good food, always on the lookout for the best restaurants. I really love eating, drinking, and playing soccer, and am looking forward to meeting everyone in Japan!
