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!

    Great tour!

    We had a wonderful day!
    Mitsuyuki was a great tour and took us to some beautiful places! Even tried a few desserts! We all had sore feel but a great first day in Japan!

    worth it

    Toke gave us a great, laid back tour of some key sights. It was nice to relax and not have to navigate and just enjoy the city.

    Very good ...

    Quite important step if you are for the first time in Kyoto...

    The booking was made last minute (within 36hrs) and I was impressed to have personal confirmation shortly made after the booking.
    The guide (Tanaka san) is a very kind, patient and very experienced person during 3 hour tour. I loved how he knew all the stories behind all the sites we visited and how genuine he was about things ( what he liked and what he didn't like about things).
    I've been checking out different websites to find a local tour guide and I think I really liked how Voyagin's interface. Will definitely book a tour guide again with Voyagin.
