Important

On Sunday morning, almost all churches have MASS, so might not be able to observe inside.

I'm very flexible. If you inform me early enough, at least 72 hours and more beforehand, I may manage to accept your requests.

During the tour, my coverage areas are mainly poor public transportation area, so mostly use my vehicle(4 adult Max), it is easy to travel and free to move. I don't charge for the vehicle operation fee (only request you to pay costs for parking and toll road fee in cash on site, if used).

My vehicle can take 4 adult guests max . 5 adult guests and more need a rental car. I have a professional drivers license, I can drive most of types vehicle. Depends on the numbers of customer, I rent a suitable size car and drive during your tour. I drive as a designated driver. In this case, you have to pay for all cost for the rental car (Rental fee, insurance, fuel, toll road, parking fee, etc).

My coverage areas are Nagasaki, Saga and Fukuoka. But I live in near Ohmura city in Nagasaki prefecture, so depens on where I go to meet you(meet-up), I will request you to pay Meet-up fee(transportation cost for round) on site. It is showed 3000JPY on my pricing page. But meet-up fee will be different price based on the transportation fee from where I stay. I will inform you meet-up fee in your proposal tour plan before your booking.

Here are basic meet-up fee on each area, Ohmura city is Free, Sasebo city is 1,000JPY, Nagasaki city is 3,000JPY, Saga ,4,000JPY and Fukuoka 8,000JPY. I try to choose cheapest way, but If meet-up fee costs more than 8,000JPY, I may not accept your tour request. But if you don't care high pick-up fee(more than 8000JPY), I go anywhere as far as I can.

I am working in both Nagasaki and Okinawa, so working 2 places about the half and half days of a month. I'd lived in Okinawa for 8 years until March 2018 and I am qualified and registered as a Okinawa Prefectural interpreter tour guide .

On my schedule calendar, available days means that I stay in Nagasaki, on the contrary, unavailable days means I am in Okinawa(mostly), so I might be able to guide you in Okinawa. If you intend to have a private tour in Okinawa, please inform me through this web site, I might be able to guide you.

Hokkaido is also not on the list. But I lived in Hokkaido for 10years when I was young and traveled all over Hokkaido by mortorcycle. So I can guide you if you provide for my transportation and cheapest hotel costs.

One of my hobby is handmade Japanese Soba noodles. I can teach you how to make Japanese Soba. Soba is made of backwheet flower, one of Japanese traditional healthy low calorie food. I hope you don't have back wheat allergy.

Making Handmade Soba and Tempura Experience activity has been showed on my original tour list.
Please try it.

Meet-up time can be coordinated after your booking.

Admission fee in some facilities and lunch are not included in guiding fee, so you need to pay on site in cash. If you want me to go inside of the facilities for translation, you will pay for my admission fee, too.

I can managed to shorten the tour time until 4 hours(minimum), but the tour will be invaluable one, just a driving, so I cannot guarantee the tour quality.

We might not be able to observe inside of the churches because of the church condition(Sunday MASS, special event, etc...).

4 and fewer guests can move by my car(5 adults Max, no charge for vehicle operation, you pay only parking and toll road fee, if used), but 5 and more guests have to use a rental car and pay for all cost. It costs 5,000 to 10,000JPNYen in total for one day normally, but depends on the type of the car. I inform you estimated rental car cost in the proposal tour plan before your booking. read more

“ Kumamoto castle and fruit picking ”

Yukihiro San is very nice and professional. He is very response to the message and provides very clear information on the non-includes items. During the tour, he tried his best to accommodate our requests and took care of my parents, who has limited mobility. Overall speaking, I will highly recommend Yukihiro San to plan to visit Japan.

Yukihiro:

Dear Bobby, Thank you very much for the high evaluation to me. The weather was so nice, but sorry for the inefficiency because of the middle day of three consecutive holidays of Japan, heavy traffic and crowded situation. Kumamoto is not my home area, so it is not well known area, I felt the shortage of knowledge and experiences in Kumamoto, so I couldn't provide you the best performance. If you visit Nagasaki, please hire me again, I promise you to guide you in my best performance to travel there. Yukihiro
