Hello everyone, it's Tad!
I studied clinical psychology in my university to help children in need of special help. And after university, I moved to Australia for two years.
During my time in Australia, I was surprised by the beauty of nature and how wide the world is, and I was helped and well treated by locals. I also realized Japanese has very unique and beautiful culture. I went to see the outside world of Japan but I was the amazing aspects of my own country.
That experience made me want to share Japanese culture and help you experience traditional Japanese hospitality.
I have over 5 years of tourism experience and have introduced both history and tradition of Japan to the visitors from all over the globe (Over 1,500 people).
Especially I hold a cultural food walk tour which complies with any special dietary restrictions in Osaka.

Highly recommend. Very fun experience doing activities and meeting locals in Osaka. Tadashi is a funny and friendly guide. I recommend preparing yourself to finish later than the advertised time to get the maximum enjoyment out of the tour.

First off: everyone unsure about if they should book this tour or not: DO IT ! Tadashi and all the people we met through him were incredibly kind hearted and he really made us feel included. The whole thing was really immersive and the takoyaki experience was a personal highlight for us! Absolutely worth it!

This is a must have experience. I wish I had done this on the first day as he was able to help me understand the culture and customs of Japan. Not only that we had a great time seeing all the secrets of Osaka while learning the history behind them. And the food! We got to try a so many things! From blow fish to sake to takoyaki and more. He gave a great pointers for exploring ourselves later on. And the man himself was so kind and tried to give is a taste of anything we were curious about. He truly went above and beyond! This is the best tour I have been on in Japan. Would recommend to anyone coming to Japan.
