About me:

Hi, my name is Ryota Usami. I’m a national guide-interpreter who can also play the shamisen, a traditional Japanese three-stringed musical instrument. If you want to tour around Osaka, hiring a tour guide like me will broaden your cultural horizons. I love Osaka. Osaka is western Japan’s business and cultural center. Osaka has been dubbed as the “Kitchen of the whole country” since the Edo period because many distributors have brought ingredients together in Osaka. Osaka is the birth place of the Japanese cuisine, but now it has spread across the entire region of Japan, and gained world-wide acclaim, so it’s very difficult to tell them apart. Takoyaki is one good example. Kaiten-zushi, or conveyor-belt sushi, and the world-famous Cup Noodle are also from Osaka.
The service I offer is as follows. I’ll pick you up at the lobby of your accommodation or meet up with you wherever you’d like at 9:00 am. The starting time is also changeable. From there I’ll take you around Osaka city including some hidden sightseeing spots and places you would like to go to for about 5 hours or more. We mainly use subways and public transportation to get there. My transportation fees during the tour are not included in the price. While having lunch, I’ll give you many travel tips, so let’s enjoy eating and talking. I assure you that I’ll take you to breathtaking sightseeing spots in Osaka at a reasonable price.
I can customize your itinerary according to your needs. I’ll organize a special tour for you.
I was wondering if you could give me the tour guide fare per group at the very beginning of the tour. This price does not include my transportation cost, which I will ask you to cover. Thank you.
