About us (Kyoto/Nara/Osaka/Kobe Tour guides)

About us uchimoto 27-1-14Hello! My name is Masayo. Please call me Masa. I live in Kobe, a beautiful port city in western Japan with my husband and two children. After graduating from university, I worked for an American computer company in Tokyo for a few years and then moved to Kobe. As a wife and mother, I can tell the Japanese daily life as well as traditional and cultural aspects of Japan. I like travelling and meeting people, so a tour guide is my ideal job! I usually guide guests around Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe, and Nara which are so attractive places to visit. Some of my guests come back to Japan and explore different places with me again. Why don’t you come over Japan and explore with me!

I’m looking forward to seeing you very soon!








My name is Akira. In Japanese my name means “Sunshine”. Therefore, please call me Akira or Mr. Sunshine!  As a nationally licensed tour guide, I usually show visitors around Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe and Nara.

As noted above, I do tours in the Kansai region (western part of Japan) and this includes the areas around Arashiyama and Sagano in Kyoto.

I look forward to meeting you!
