    We are well seasoned travelers who are generally very comfortable in a new foreign city. This was our first trip to Japan and we thought it would be good to hire a local guide in each city to get us pointed in the right direction. This was our first experience with CityUnscripted and our host Akira. I am beyond pleased with the value of the tour and the experience we had. Akira met us at our hotel and asked a few questions to narrow in to exactly what we wanted to do and how to customize the trip for us. We were starving after flying for almost 15 hours to get to Osaka. Akira took us to the local shopping district and ordered the local favorite foods. These are the foods that I absolutely would not have ordered on my own. However, I had faith in Akira and he absolutely delivered. Every dish he introduced us to was absolutely delicious. Our half day experience with Akira was short but it gave us everything we needed to jump start our trip. We were able to navigate the local area, shop, and order excellent food. While these sound like rather simple tasks, they can be quite intimidating in Japan If you don’t speak the language or know the local customs. We asked hundreds of questions to Akira about our itinerary and Japan in general. Akira was able to give us incredible advice that allowed us to ensure we had our trip planned to maximize our experience. In summary, our experience with Akira and CityUnscripted was superb and I can’t recommend them enough. Osaka is an incredible city (Kyoto too), but I strongly recommend getting a local guide to ensure you are making the most of your time.

    We met our guide Jenny and it was very easy and comfortable from the start. She showed us where certain shops were that suited our daughters quirky tastes. She showed us around the city, where to eat, shop and relax. It was a fun walking tour.

    We spent 2 full days with Aki while in Osaka. She knows Osaka very well and was able to tailor our 2 days to meet our expectations. We saw what we wanted to see and did the activities that we wanted to do. Aki is very easy going, speaks excellent English and made us very comfortable. Aki was able to provide suggestions on how to spend the time we had booked. She also took the time to understand what we were looking for to make sure we used our time together well. We were very happy with our 2 days with Aki.
