Hi,I'm Hiroyuki Fukui. Please call me Hiro.
I'm a government certified guide interpreter.
I'm originally from Gifu Prefecture located in Central Japan and have lived in Nara city for more than twenty years.
I used to be a civil engineer working for a construction company and experienced overseas projects mainly in South Pacific region for about nine years.
During my stay abroad, I had an opportunity to look Japan from outside and realized the beauty of Japan from different point of view.
Now I retired from the company and I'm guiding foreign visitors mainly over Kansai district including Nara, Kyoto and Osaka to help them know more about the history, the culture and the people of Japan.
I'm looking forward to serving you soon.
I am Yuriko from Japan. Now I'm an assistant English teacher at junior high school.
I also work as a kimono, Japanese traditional costume dresser. If you are interested in kimono, I'll dress you kimono. I have a certificate of a tour guide. I sometimes guide some foreigners around Nagoya castle, Gifu castle and so on. There are so many nice places to visit in Gifu, Nagoya, Kyoto, central Japan!! Let's enjoy Japan sightseeing with wearing kimono with me!! I would like to guide you around central Japan. See you soon!!!^o^
Hello everyone. I am Tetsuji. I worked as a public servant in the local government for 35 years. I belonged to the department of Redevelopment, Town-Landscaping, Preserving historical areas and Architectural Guidance. (I have a national 1st-class architect license.) I devoted myself to revitalizing the city by making plans and improving infrastructure for citizens.
Gifu is located in central Japan near Nagoya. As just being the crossroads of the West and the East, there are many unique attractions that are hard to discover in hectic big cities like Tokyo or Kyoto. I had a hand in restoring and preserving some of them throughout my career and want to introduce them to tourists from abroad. That’s why I became a guide-interpreter in Gifu.
I also enjoyed traveling around the world. My favorite part of each trip was walking around the city and talking with local residents. Traveling has taught me lots of things during my lifetime. Now, I would like to help others have similar experience in Japan. Shall we enjoy fantastic journey in Gifu?

Visit the best places, venues, spots and locations with me. You will enjoy neighborhood full of hidden local treasures.
I am a mother of two girls. I'd be happy to welcome families and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask me any.
I also translate and teach English. And I am a host of an Internet radio program at a Local Tourism Association. I like meeting people and all these experiences allow me to be good at communicating as a guide.
I look forward to exploring this beautiful culture with you.
