This is a very unique tour that you get to learn how to make Ramen and Gyoza dumplings! You will make noodles from scratch. Tonkotsu ramen(pork based soup) is very popular and famous in Fukuoka. After satisfying your stomach, we'll visit Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine by train. The shrine is dedicated to a scholar and politician of the Heian period(794~1192). Over 10 million people visit this shrine, it is definitely one of the famous and popular spots in Fukuoka. There are lots of small shops on the way to the shrine, so you can enjoy shopping as well!

“ Nagasaki in a Day ”

Coming into Nagasaki straight from Hiroshima, already having some prior knowledge about the atomic bombs, Hitomi showed me around Nagasaki and it's history. Going through Glover Garden and some brief history about Mitsubishi (yeah it's not just a TV company), Oura Church, then the atomic bomb museum, and the Peace Park. Everything from the beginning to the end had a purpose. Each and every new place we went to had more details than the last, so the pieces of the puzzle was being put together. She is the perfect story teller. Even when it was all over, she even shown me where to get Yakitori! I had a blast. It's not everyday I get to have that much fun with someone. I wish I could spend two days with her.

Hitomi:

Hi Eric, I had such a great time with you too. It was nice to hear your thoughts and ideas, I was actually impressed by you for the reasons you came to visit Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Thank you for your visit and I'm proud that I guided you. So I guess you enjoyed your dinner at that yakitori place, sorry I couldn't join you there. Please enjoy your trip and the concert in Tokyo. If you come visit Fukuoka next time, we go to a really good yakitori restaurant and have lots sake together;) Hitomi

“ Great Day in Nagasaki ”

My wife and I had a great day with Hitomi. She picked us up at the cruise terminal. Her English was outstanding. She took us to many of the local sights in the city and to a local restaurant for lunch. She showed us how to ride the local tram and returned us to the cruise terminal at the end of the day. If you need a guide for Nagasaki you cannot go wrong with Hitomi.

Hitomi:

Dear Chris and Helen I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour in Nagasaki. It was a big pleasure to show you around the city and to share some time together. Thank you for choosing me as the guide and giving me a kind review! Please come back to Kyushu again, I'm willing to introduce you some other beautiful and interesting areas! Hitomi

“ Tour por la isla de Kyushu ”

La experiencia vivida con la Srta. Hitomi fue excelente, Ya que con ella tuvimos la posibilidad de recorrer lugares que solo se podian visitar en carro particular, Yo rente un auto porque queria viajar por diferentes lugares de la isla que ean de mi interes y necesitaba de un guia, que conociera, la zona, las carreteras y lugares recomendados para comer .

Hitomi:

Alex & Gina Gracias amigos, It was a big pleasure to meet you and spend 4days together! It was an adventure to visit many places by car, and I gotta say you are such a great driver! and Gina is such a sweet and kind person. It was nice listening you two speak in Spanish, it reminded me of old time in California and Sevilla, made me want to learn Spanish again. I'm glad that I could help your trip in Kyushu area. Hope to show you around the south area of Kyushu next time. Thank you very much for your kind review, and it was really nice meeting you both. All the best, Hitomi
