When I started Samurai Tours, my goal was to break down as many barriers to the Japanese culture as possible to allow people to experience and enjoy Japan to its fullest.

I was born and raised in Osaka and I now live in Kyoto. I would like clients to experience reasonable but delicious Osaka foods and aristocratic Kyoto culture during their stay in Osaka and Kyoto.

Kenichi “Ken” Adachi

I have been working for Samurai Tours for eight years now. Since I was a little child, my hobby has always been planning trips, sightseeing, and finding my way around. I would like our guests to see and experience Japan through the eyes of the locals.

I fell in love with the country and the culture and I knew then that I wanted to work with Japan and one day possibly live there.

I was born in Tokyo, and I have been working as a guide for almost 15 years. I have been working for Samurai Tours since 2009. I really enjoy working as a guide for Samurai Tours, and hope to meet as many clients as I can from the world to explore Japan together.

I wanted to become a guide to introduce Koyasan to foreign tourists and help them enjoy Koyasan as much as possible.

Even though Japan has a long history and unique culture, my studies have given me a much better knowledge and understanding of the Japanese culture.
