Who I am

Visit Japan, walking tours in Kyoto, Nara and Osaka Dario BertoniHi! My name is Dario Bertoni, I was born in 1973 in Italy. In 2004 I moved to Japan where I am living today. I worked in various Japanese firms and in 2018 I started working on my own. I speak English, Italian and Japanese.

I really like history, with it it is possible to nderstand the modern Japanese. I like to understand what the nature of things, the origin of habits, preferences and attitudes of people. And I also take great pleasure in explaining and telling to other people.

Walking tours in Kyoto, Nara and OsakaJapan is the result of many past events that changed the country, sometimes slowly and sometimes so quickly that many aspect of the past were left in the process.
Japan is a patchwork of various elements, that can be difficult to understand. The country, as it is today, is the result of centuries of innovation, sometimes brought about by outside forces and other times as a result of the dedication of engaged people. Along with their amazing skills in engineering, craftsmanship, and manufacturing, the Japanese have also woven together a civilization that has grown increasingly complicated through time.

Walking tours in Kyoto, Nara and OsakaSo while planning a vacation to Japan, there are two things to look into.
There is a tour into tangible locations, passing through serene gardens, magnificent temples, busy stores, and vibrant markets.
However, there is also a journey into the Japanese cultural world, where one can learn about a complex and sophisticated society with unique characteristics like a strong appreciation for beauty, a preference for consistency and order, a sense of respect and coexistence, as well as the joy of leisure and extravagant fun.

Guida Giappone Nara Dario BertoniSome of the many themes that accompany my tours are why the Japanese built wooden temples, why they practice two religions, why gifts must be given and received in a certain way, how certain foods have influenced generations’ way of life, and what ancient customs have evolved into contemporary practice. In Japan, there are countless remarkable things to be admired.
Understanding is better than just seeing, as it makes travel an opportunity to learn and discover.
