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!

    Your name in stone

    This was more difficult than it looks on the website, but the host will help you if you make a mistake. Got to meet four nice people who work there. Unbelievable how the Japanese can make such very detailed stamp designs with hand. I would recommend this activity for all.

    Great experience

    Supercool activity. Friendly people, great explanations and good output: a wonderfull self crafted stamp. Make me proud everytime I touch it. Thank you.

  • Kim Kim

    Great experience!

    This experience was one of the highlights of our trip and is highly recommended! The staff at the stamp shop were extremely warm and welcoming. We learned a lot about the craft of seal carving and getting to try it ourselves really added to our appreciation of the artistry involved. We came away with not only stamps, but feeling like we had made true friends!

  • Jackson Jackson

    Great!

    The class was great as I mentioned in my other review! Thank you!

  • Danai Danai

    Wonderful people

    Great experience with Taka the translator and the lovely people at the carving shop!
    I now have all the equipment and knowledge to start crafting my own seals.

    A big thank you.

  • Kumica Kumica

    Best souvenir from Japan!

    Very cool. Lovely people. Highly recommended!

  • Christina Christina

    AWESOME!!!!

    It was fantastic the gentlemen that worked in the shop were lovely and Tokie was a fabulous translator and guide. I was so nervous and lack in fine motor skills that I thought I would ruin the stamp but it turned out great with their guidance.

    My only regret was not being able to speak in Japanese.

    It was a nice experience for this learning class with Tokie who is very kind and cute. Thanks for the arrangement. The teacher was nice too. I took some photos with them all. Nice .

    We took a group of 15 students to do this activity. It was probably a little too challenging for them but they still had a good time. The hosts Mariko and Tokie were top-class. Relaxed and outgoing but still very professional. While we probably wouldn't do the stone seal activity again we would definitely do an activity led by either Mariko or Tokie.

    A wonderful experience worth signing up for. Being able to carve your own seal and bringing home a piece of Japan with you. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to bring home a really unique, traditional and yet a personal piece of souvenir.
