YOUR HOST

Tamaki NISHIMURA

I manage the Kansai area-based tours for Experience+, especially those in Osaka and Kyoto. I'm originally born and raised in Osaka, but recently I have lived in Kyoto for almost 4 years. During my high school years, I lived in Canada, and have traveled to many destinations throughout Asia. These experiences gave me a love for travel, and a deep curiosity for finding local places and hidden gems that I can visit with local people along the way. Now, back in Japan, I feel that it's my turn to start showing travelers around my favorite spots, including some of the coolest, lesser-known locations around Kyoto and Osaka where I grew up! Come and join my experience as we make new, unforgettable memories from the best corners of Japan!
