¡Hola! or Hi
How are you ?

Feel the difference.
I would love to introduce places and things that I am really into.
Especially, if you are interested in Japanese history, I can help you to know about it.Because I have studied Japanese history in the university. And I have trained Japanese martial arts especially sword fighting for yeas.
I would like to introduce this beautiful country, Japan to the World.
And I would like to tell you
Bushido , samurai spirit, which includes brave gentle dignity and so on.
My motto is
Not only famous sightseeing places but also minor but interesting spots.
I always wish I would like to show you something special about Japan.
I can make your original tour plan ask me anytime.
If you are not satisfied with typical sightseeing tour, I can guide you rare and interesting places.
Most of my tours start from local stations but I might be able to pick you up at your hotel in Tokyo.
Please ask details.
Hello, everyone! I am Yoshiharu, a national certified tour guide. Fukuoka is my birthplace, so I have a close attachment to this region. Though you may not be familiar with the name of Fukuoka, I assure that Fukuoka will provide new discovery and pleasure to your stay in Japan. I will do my best to make your stay in Japan more memorable in a fun way. Let’s go out for new adventures together!
Hello! My name is Tadashi. I was born and raised in Fukuoka and I've lived here all my life. I used to work for a local bank where I was mainly involved in export, import, and foreign exchange, etc. Afterwards I joined a university where I taught international economics and foreign trade for five years.
I'm happy to arrange your tour plans according to your requests and help you to write your own unique story with me.
If you're coming to Fukuoka for the first time, I recommend Tochoji Temple, Kushida Shrine and Fukuoka Castle Ruins where you can get feel for Japanese culture and history. Thirty minutes away from the center by train is Dazaifu. There you can enjoy a very famous shrine, Dazaifu Tenmangu, known as the home of " the god of literature or calligraphy." and Kyushu National Museum. Fukuoka is also a mecca for shopping and food.
If you're coming to Fukuoka again, I recommend that you try local food, for example, Hakata Ramen-noodles in pork broth and locally caught fish. I can also take you to a traditional Japanese shopping arcade,
Kawabata Shotengai. If you would like to get out of the city, we could go to Yanagawa, a town of canals, which is a one hour ride from the city center. You can try boat tours enjoying the leisurely view of the historic buildings and try Steamed Eel.
Fukuoka travel tip: if you arrive in Fukuoka by JR, make sure to get off at "Hakata Station." Sorry, there's no "Fukuoka Station." on JR lines. Hakata is an old name for Fukuoka and your destination.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
I worked for foreign affiliated companies in Tokyo for years, and returned to Kumamoto, my home town. It is my passion to help tourists from around the world to have the greatest time during their stay in Japan.
I would like to tailor your visit to suit your own interests and time constraints. As a native and a local tour guide, I will make sure you will have a fabulous time in Kumamoto.
