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 class!

    My husband and I booked this experience last minute (the night before). Communication was excellent both from the company and the host regarding confirming the booking and meeting place. We were at the meeting point for aboit half an he waiting for the guide before I found a nice local who escorted me to a pay phone so I could call the number provided. After few phone calls (500 yen later!) The guide realised he was in the wrong place and Meg UA at the correct location. From there he took us to the pottery class and was only the translator. We ended up in a private class with a guide each. They instructors didn't speak much English but it's not really required for pottery as everything is shown by hand. Was a great balance of letting us mould our own pieces but making sure they will turn out OK. Shipping was 4000 yen to Australia and we got a "receipt" which has our reference for the pottery on it. The translator told us the pottery is insured if it arrives broken. Fantastic unique Japanese experience. My husband was very skeptical but highly enjoyed the class once he got started!

    Couldn't be happier with this experience. The host was very helpful and the artist managed to teach two people who had never touched clay before to make beautiful tea cups.
