英語 Anne


Traveling at small towns in each country is my hobby. And finding how they live is a lot of fun for me.
Izumisano City located at the entrance of West Japan by airplane is a small town, and not a big city which has distinguished structures like pictures you can see in a guidebook. But it has many historical and traditional appeal points, such as old nostalgic town, landscape of medieval manor site, hot springs and even ascetic place by waterfall ablution deep in mountains. Or how about having experiences of Japanese culture, such as making a miniature size tatami mat, dyeing handkerchief and others, with local resident. We would like to show you around our Izumisano City.
Why don’t you stay in our town, on arriving at Kansai Int’l Airport, or before leaving Japan from Kansai Int’l Airport? I ‘m sure we can make your trip enrich, and it will remain in your memory.
We are looking forward to seeing you at Izumisano!

英語 Kazu


Hello, I’m kazu.
I have guided foreigners such as European, American, Malaysian and Filipino to Kyoto, Osaka and Nara until now. I would like to show you Izumisano city as an area guide in Izumisano with my guide experience. Unlike the regular tour spots, Izumisano is the city in which foreign visitors can feel not only places of historic interest and scenic beauty but also common daily life of people directly.
Many foreign tourists I entertained often ask for me to take them to the real Japanese life spots which are not written in the tour guide book. I believe Izumisano satisfy such demand. If you want the same demand, I ‘m sure my guide skill is useful to carry out your wishing. I’m looking forward to seeing you at Izumisano.

英語 Kaeko Katsuya


My favorite place is Mt.Inunaki where people from olden times have been respecting great nature of the mountain. It is the place where ascetic monks have been training themselves and got supernatural powers. Visitors could experience almost the same training as standing under the waterfalls. All throughout the year, visitors can enjoy trekking along nature’s ravine and relax in the hot springs. All these can make you feel comfortable and rejuvenated. This is what I love about Mt.Inunaki. Why don’t you come and experience it yourself!!



Hello, I’m Masako from Kishiwada, not far from Kansai Airport. I’ve spent most of my life here. I majored in English at university in Kobe and also I’ve studied in America. In my previous job I worked with many foreign instructors and visited clients all around the Kansai area.
