Hi! My name is Chinatsu. I am an artist, and like to travel with my art. I was born in Japan but I lived in the USA for a long time. I speak Japanese and English and understand both customs and cultures. Meeting travelers in Japan makes me feel excited because they give me a new perspective of places I have known. I love to share excitements, and take them to places that I feel good about. I travel around quite a bit, I would also like travelers to have a wonderful time in Japan. One of my favorite places is Kyoto.. I go there very often to show travelers around and also explore new places myself. I consider myself as an outgoing, friendly and open-minded person. I treasure every meeting! Thank you!

Hi! I’m Aki. I was born and raised in Japan. I live in Osaka for more than 7 years now. I love this city for people being so friendly and amazing. I’m a very social and friendly person, being shy is not in my dictionary. My favorite thing to do is finding a good bakery and coffee shop. I like taking things slower than being busy with a minute-by-minute schedule. I like to be spontaneous. I’m the person who doesn’t stay on the route on GoogleMap when I smell something interesting. I will help you have a experience that you can’t have if you’re on your own. You will find yourself eating food that you have never tried before, speaking to local Osaka people and making friends with them… and who knows what crazy ideas that I come up with. I like to have a great time and experience with you rather than only letting you have them. I’m looking forward to showing you around my favorite city!

Hello ! I'm Brice from France and been living in Osaka since roughly 7 years. I fell in love with the region as as soon as I arrived, and what I like the most is to explore unknow place then find hidden gem. Even after so many years, I feel like there are yet so many things to discover. I'm also a huge fan of going out to eat and drink, and on a perpetual quest of finding delicious restaurant ! I'm pretty easygoing and open minded so if you're looking for a different way to visit Osaka, I'm the guy you need ! Thank you !

Hey, I'm Barun from Canada and I've been living the expat life in East Asia since 2009. I love EVERYTHING there is about travel - including getting the chance to introduce my city to visitors! Whether you're an old friend or a new friend meeting me for the first time, I treat everyone like my best friend and love to share a laugh or few along the way. As an avid traveler, I have a keen photographer's eye and love taking pics for/with people, so bring your best smiles! From history to culture, street food to street drinks, I live for adventures, stories and making great new memories. Once you see Osaka from my eyes, I'm sure you'll love it just as much as I do!

Nice to meet you. My name is Mamo! I was born&raised in Osaka and I love it. When I was 21-24, I was living outside of Japan. (AU, The Philippines, New Zealand, Vietnam and so on.) My English skill is fluent (I believe). During the travel, I've met many great people everywhere and all the people I met treated me very well. So, I think it's my turn now to do something good for you guys. I think there still is difficulty for non-Japanese speakers to enjoy traveling Japan because of the language barrier. So, I believe I can be a bridge to connect foreigners with Japan. I used to work in a start-up company so, I like making my idea come true and making people happy with it! I hope my idea can work out to make the world a better place a bit.
