Hi, there!!
I’m Masa, a tour guide for Osaka Free Waking Tour.
Hope you all are doing fine in this unprecedented pandemic.

Thank you all for joining my Osaka Free Walking Tour during your stay in Osaka, Japan.
I hope you had a good time with me as much as I did with you all!!

I started this Osaka tour in January 2018, right after I moved back from USA. I started it from a very scratch, learning from you guys and it is currently listed as #1 tour in Osaka in Trip Advisor.
My tour has even ranked #2 in Trip Advisor as things to do in Japan among international visitors in 2020!!
I have conducted total of 753 tours ever since, and more than 11,400 people from all around the globe joined my tour so far.

My tour has been successful thanks to all of you. I couldn’t have come this far without your supports!!

I love what I do, showing my beloved city to the people visiting Japan, and love talking with people from all over the world.
But in late March this year I had to pause my tour due to the spreading of COVID-19.

As of now in Aug 2020, Japan sees COVID-19 case numbers dramatically increasing again and no sign of opening up our border for foreign visitors yet.

It has already been 5 months since I conducted my last tour in March. I now get to spend lots of quality time with my family since, which I always wanted. But at the same time I miss spending time with you guys in person so much. With no sign of foreign visitors coming back to Japan as of yet, I and my management team are struggling to make our ends meet, as all of us are full time workers in the tourism business,
which has been devastated by this unprecedented event.

We need your help if you can, even a few dollars, or just spread the word through social media about this campaign, to help us keep our tours going when things get back to normal again.

Every dollar counts. Your kind support would be highly appreciated!!

Our passion for Osaka still stays the same.
We just can’t wait for the day to see you all again in this exciting city of Osaka!!
Until then please stay safe and sound!!

Your friend in Osaka, Japan
Masaaki

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the information, history, opinion, and exposure to Japan (on my first day); made a difference in my first time visit. Would suggest for all other first time visitors.
