Hi! I'm an American by birth, but have spent over seven years in Japan. I live in Osaka, which is the best city In Japan!!! :) But, let me show you around and then you can be the judge of that.

I speak Japanese fluently, and I can take into "deep Osaka" for experiences you just normally can't find with a guidebook and limited Japanese ability. Let's get adventuring!

    Educational and enjoyable!

    We experienced great food, drink and company on our journey through multiple restaurants in Osaka. Kevin was a fantastic guide, and I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. Thank you!

    Fun and Quirky Tour! Must Do!

    Tour was awesome! It's a great way to learn about Japanese culture and the best places to grab pub food in Osaka. Tour was led by Kev; who is very chilled, laid back and versed in the Japanese culture. Tour was funny at certain parts with a few funny surprises. I did the whisky tour; where the whisky was AMAZING!!! Give this a SHOT! I didn't know much about Osaka nightlife but thanks to Kevin definitely know a lot more. Cheers Mate.

    Possibly the best tipsy night in Osaka.

    You know a tour is good when you literally are having to much fun to take photos. Kevin was everything you want in a guide, knowledgeable, good sense of humour and easy going. Probably asked him to many personal questions but he rolled with the punches. We visited a bunch of bars filled with funny and interesting people. All very welcoming, the food was great, good for adventurous foodies and beginners. Don't be scared to try the recommended dishes and make sure you scope out the love hotel locals. 5/5 buddy thanks for the laughs.

    Deep Osaka Tour - Fantastic

    Absolutely fabulous experience. Kevin showed me the side of Osaka that I would have never experienced by myself. I would highly recommend this tour for any traveller to Osaka who wants to get an authentic sight and taste of what the city has to offer. For non-Japanese speakers, language can be a major barrier to exploration. Many guides claim to speak English but cannot hold a conversation. Kevin, an American by birth, now living in Osaka, provides a unique opportunity to explore this city. Kevin was very accommodating with my schedule and designed an experience matched to my time and availability. Thank you.

    Enjoy an adventurous evening of food and drink in Osaka

    This tour was beyond expectations and KEVIN was wonderful!!! We enjoyed his knowledge, his company, his food and drink selections. The places that Kevin took us to would have never been found by us alone and to be honest... he totally MADE our trip to Osaka memorable. I would HIGHLY recommend to ANYONE to go on Kevin's tour called Enjoy an adventurous evening of food and drink in Osaka. Kevin is a true local, yet born in USA......cannot say enough nice things about this evening and would say that if you are headed to OSAKA...it would be a huge mistake to not book an evening with Kevin. Not only did he give us a wonderful tour he also extended himself to other information regarding restaurant suggestions, shopping areas, museum information and subway tips. He was the FULL PACKAGE and like I said.... he is the reason that we loved our Osaka visit. THANK YOU KEVIN!!!!

    Great Local Tour!

    Had a great time with Kevin learning about one of Osaka's more historical neighbourhoods and some interesting things about Japanese culture. Delicious food at local places that I could not have experienced without this tour and my host's knowledge of the area and language.
    Thanks Kev!

    Great way to experience Osaka through food

    Our group of 8 had a great experience seeing different areas of Osaka as well as trying many different types of delicious food. If you enjoy whiskey go for a extra tasting as it was definitely worth it. Kevin is a great host and would recommend to anyone looking for a different way to see Osaka in the evening beyond the Dotonbori.

    Great experience

    My husband and I really enjoyed our time with Kevin! He provided lots of fun information while showing us the parts of Osaka we would likely never had visited on our own. We had plenty of yummy food and drink in some stand-up bars known only by locals! Highly recommend.

  • Patricia Patricia

    A must!

    If you want to experience how the locals eat/drink, this is the tour to take. Would be intimidated to go to the bars we visited without Kevin. My husband and I enjoyed the tour. Highly recommended.

    Just book your time with Kevin now before he gets too busy! Aloha!
