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!

Food and sightseeing are my therapy when I want to relax and be grateful for living on the most amazing era of our time, and there is no better place to be in than Osaka. I love kids and to share and hear about experiences of different people. I always want to make sure people have a great time.

I love to explore new places and eat, and I'm currently trying to travel to all 47 prefectures in Japan. Whenever I travel in Japan, I try my best to find some local specialties to try. I love searching for cafes to take in the surroundings around me and have a good chat about life. I am a bit of a picky eater (animal inert is not my cup of tea, but I love meat), but I try to be respectful of the food given to me. I'm passionate about anime and gaming. Japan has also made me fall in love with hot springs. I love a good ryokan stay with onsen and good food.

Hello, I am a master's student at Osaka University studying international public policy. Because of my studies I can offer you a lot of insights to the political and cultural relations between Japan and other countries. Outside of my studies I do many things: whether it is DJing in local bars and clubs, modelling, acting, going out with my friends to dance venues, or hiking in quiet forests outside the city, I am down for it all! I know a little bit of everything after a year in this city so I am open to hearing what you are interested in doing and we can work together from there!

Hi, call me Jay Tee. I've lived in Kobe, Japan since 2007. That's the longest I've lived anywhere, so this has truly become my hometown! Do I live in Kobe, or Osaka? Good question. This is basically one big, linked city; I work, live, and play across them both. A fast (and cheap) 25-minute train ride joins their downtown areas, and you never see countryside anywhere in between! Since I love to eat well (both Japanese and other ethnic foods), and explore new things to do around my home, I've learned where to get great food, see neat things, and have fun like the locals—often just around the corner from the mobbed tourist places. And who am I? Well, I'm sometimes known as Professor Jay Tee, the Lightning-fast Hypnotist. I'm a professional entertainment hypnotist and part-time university teacher. I have a wide-ranging work history as federal officer, corporate manager, book editor, and even forklift driver. I would like to host your experience, because it will be more up-close-and-personal than my usual 1000+ shows and seminars. I enjoy getting to know people as I show them around in my adopted home. Let's plan your visit soon!
