Guide Bio

Hi! My name is Koji Matsuda, a nationally certified English-speaking guide. Let me welcome you to Japan and be your Private Tour Guide in the Kansai region of Japan’s main island of Honshu.

The region includes the prefectures of Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Hyogo, Wakayama, Mie, Shiga. The area of Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe (the Keihanshin region) is the second most populated in Japan after Greater Tokyo.

After more than 20 years in the business world, in May 2015 I began a new career as a professional guide. It is not a mere job, but a vocation for me. Through my education, private study and travel experience I am well qualified to be your guide to the geographic wonders, history, customs, and places of interest in Japan.

To take your own tour with me, please contact first. We will correspond and work out the very best tour. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. I always feel happiness whenever I see my client enjoy the tour. Why don’t you join me? – Koji Matsuda

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
