About Mediator
My name is Yuki, and I am a licensed tour guide in English and Italian. With 6 years experience as an interpreter in a food trading company and as a licensed sommelier (wine and sake), I often organise foodie tours in Osaka and Kyoto, in addition to normal walking tours. I am also licensed by the Osaka Prefectural Government to handle fugu (blowfish), so ask me if you would like to learn about (or taste) this famously poisonous fish (which is, of course, perfectly safe to eat!!). I was born and raised in Osaka, the city known as "the nation's kitchen" or "the food capital of Japan". However, it is also true that many of the city's restaurants are too geared towards serving tourists, and the quality of the food is far from satisfactory for us locals. As a big foodie myself, it is my duty to make sure that my guests enjoy the real food scene of the area. I also hope to introduce my guests to some of the rich historical sites and very friendly locals of the Kansai region (the area around Osaka, Kyoto and Nara). So please join me on one of my tours and let's have fun together over a few drinks and local food!
