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 6 years now. I love this city for people being so friendly and funny. 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 a local in Kansai accent… 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 show you around my favorite city!

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!
