Hi my name is Hiromi. I am a wife and mother of two kids. I have been working for tour companies since 2001. When I worked in Tokyo, I went on business trips to more than 40 countries. During my business trips, I had opportunities to explore foreign cultures by meeting and communicating with the locals and I enjoyed it a lot. My trips inspired me to decide to introduce my hometown, Osaka, to foreigners. So I moved back to Osaka with my family and now I am a tour guide of Osaka. So far, I have guided various types of tourists ranging from just married couple to big size family. I can not only guide you around famous tourist attractions in Osaka but also take you to hidden gems in Osaka since I was born and raised in Osaka. Also I can guide you to Kyoto and Nara.
