Hi, I'm Tokie.

I was born and grew up in Osaka, and I have lived in Osaka for 90% of my life. I like to show people around my city, not only famous sightseeing places but also local places where you can feel how real Osaka is.

I also travel a lot. I have traveled to Europe, South East Asia, North and Central America, and more. I always enjoyed tours where I could meet local people and enjoy an awesome experience. So I want to offer similar tours here in Osaka.

My likes:
1. Local tours
2. Good food
3. Cooking
4. Language and culture exchange (I can teach Japanese!)
5. Japanese calligraphy
6. Running (I have some marathon experiences.)
7. The beach (That's what I miss here in Osaka!)

Please contact me if you want to enjoy Osaka and Japan!

    Worth it!

    Rie-san was very patient and accommodating. We had to adjust the schedule since we were activating our Jr pass. She even helped us exchange our orders for the pass. Highly recommended!

    Kyoto afternoon

    Chacko was prompt and friendly, meeting us at our Ryokan. We had limited time, and she helped us see our top desired sights efficiently. My family enjoyed asking her questions about Japanese life. She explained some Japanese words, etc.
    only downside I had not really anticipated was that we got around by public bus. This saved some money, but for people with few hours in Kyoto it may be better to prespecify a private vehicle or plan taxis. The buses were somewhat crowded, too, and we could not always find a seat for our younger kids.
    Still, this was a very worthwhile guided afternoon for us.

    We booked this at the last minute and Yuki was unavailable. But lucky for us, Kei was the replacement tour guide.

    Since it was a last minute booking I was emailing Kei, the night before the actual tour. He was able to recommend great places for us to see within our limited time available for Kyoto.

    Kei spoke great English and was able to explain a lot about the places we saw in Kyoto. I would have to say that our Kyoto trip would not have been as successful and enjoyable without Kei.

    Given the language barrier in Japan, it is important to find someone who can guide you around to really help you experience the place and enjoy your stay.

    I would definitely recommend the tour packages here at Voyagin. And if we have a chance again to come back to Japan, we will definitely look into the other tour packages.

    My 8 year old daughter is giving you the thumbs up. Thank you very much Kei :-)
