My passion is food and history!

And as a neighborhood of Osaka castle more than 15 years, I would like to introduce "My garden Osaka castle" to the people visit Osaka with traditional matcha tea and sweets.

I am a certificated tour guide, so I can explain the charm of the castle from the view of history and geography too!

And I learn tea with my Urasenke teacher more than 5 years, so if you have any curiosity to the tea ceremony, Zen or tea farm, I am happy to answer!

My main work is a cooking instructor of "Osaka Kitchen" which is admitted as "Certificate of excellence" by tripadviswer. And I am very proud the heartwarming reviews from my customer. You will have a discount if you join both walking and cooking class !!

Can't wait to walk and enjoy tea with you!

This tour of the Osaka castle was really great. Yoko was so knowledgeable and helped us learn a lot about the history of the castle and gave us a deeper understanding of Japanese culture through interesting details throughout. I would definitely recommend her tour if visiting Osaka!

Yoko is very knowledgeable and gave us more insight about the castle and helped us appreciate it more than if we just went on our own. It was really fun talking with her and if you especially are interested in Japanese culture and history you will love this. Yoko is a very kind person and fun to have a conversation with! It’s best to come when it’s not too hot.

Yoko was such a pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide. She showed us things we definitely wouldn’t have known to pay attention to otherwise. We learned a lot about the castle and about Japanese history and culture. She also showed us a few great spots to take pictures that we definitely would not have found on our own. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed this castle walk! Yoko explained the history of the castle and the surrounding buildings and helped us to understand the significance they have to Japanese people and their culture. The sweets that we had at the end were delicious and the matcha tea was a perfect touch to end the tour.

It was a really interesting and wonderful time! Yoko was very friendly and explained many little tidbits about the local culture and history that we definitely would not have known otherwise. Ending the tour with some wagashi and matcha tea whilst overlooking Osaka Castle, was also a really lovely touch.
