Tour applcation form will be accepted until 7 days before the tour

I'm very flexible. If you inform me early enough, about 1week 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 a private vehicle(4 adult guests Max), it is easy to travel and free to move. Free Wi-Fi(2.4GHz, 5GHz) and AC100V/DC5V, DC12V charger are available in the car. I don't charge for the vehicle operation (only request you to pay parking fee and toll road fee on site, if used).

The private vehicle can take 4 adult guests max. If you are 5 adults and more, need to rent 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 instead of you during the 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 prefecture. But I live in near Omura city in Nagasaki pref., so depend on where I go to meet you(meet-up), I will request you to pay Meet-up fee(real transportation cost to and from the meeting spot) in cash 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 1,500JPY, Nagasaki city is 3,000JPY, Saga ,5,000JPY 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 meet-up fee(more than 8000JPY), I go anywhere as far as I can.

I am working in both Nagasaki and Okinawa, working 2 places about the half and half days of a month. I had 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 visit my another account page of TripleLights(Nagasaki, Saga and Fukuoka area), there is another job schedule calendar there.

One of my hobby is handmade Japanese Soba noodles. I can teach you how to make Japanese Soba. Soba is made of buckwheat 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.

You can choose your transportation (walking plus public transportations, my car or a rental car).

Max 4pax can get on my car(3pax in rear seat would be tight: TOYOTA prius), 5 and more guests need to rent a suitable rental car. I can drive a rental car instead of you. When we use my car to move, operational charge is free (except toll-road and parking fee), but when we use a rental car, You have to pay all rental car related costs because it is outer service.

As for the transportation, the most suitable way is depends on the situation, so I try to choose as you like, but I cannot promise, finally I decide the best way, please understand that.

Street track car is very conveniet for moving in central Nagasaki city and cheep(one day 500JPY/pax), too. But you have to walk some distance and waste of your time. Terrein of Nagasaki city is very steep slopes, so it is not suitable for walk around so you need to be tough in physically. Roads are very narrow and crowded, not suitable for a big vehicle like a bus and may often have traffic jam.

If you use my car or a rental car, we need to park somewhere, but there are no free parking area, so please understand that you need to pay at each parking lot in cash. read more

“ 6 hours in Nagasaki ”

Yukihiro our tour guide is very friendly and knowedgable so far with all things that we’ve asked him, especialy about history and localities. We also felt comfortable with him as our tour guide.


Dear Geraldine, I am so happy to be evaluated greatly as your comment. I feel sorry that we couldn’t go Mt. Inasa outlook because of unexpected construction on the route. Please try again at night in the future, you will be able to observe the one of 3 greatest night view of Japan. Hero

“ Nagasaki 4hr tour ”

Great tour with Hero. Anything you'd ask, he replies. 4hr is really jampacked and no problem with communication. :)


Thank you very much for high evaluation, Cessy ! This time was short tour, so couldn’t visit many places. I hope you to stay Nagasaki longer next time. Hero

“ Awsome custom tour ”

We had an awsome full day with Hero, he was literally our hero. He fixed a custom tour at our request, following alot of the coast and scenic spots around Kjukushima, Sasebo, and Omura bay. His local knowledge is excelent and his English is good. Expect a jovial host, which is always smiling, and a dash of humor. Will recommend! ? ?


Dear Marius, Thank you very much for great evaluation. I appreciate early evaluation on the way of your tour. I could take you many places as many as I could, but made you tired because of long driving. I drove more than 600km in a day!! Actually this is my first meeting with Norwegians who talk to. During the tour I could have a lot of conversation with you so that I understood lot about Norwegian culture, terrain, food, climate, custom, vegetation and so on. I have never been to Norway, but now I am so interested in your country. My view of knowledge was expanded. Take care and enjoy rest of days in Japan. Hope to see you in Norway someday. Hero

“ good guide and plan ”

good guide and plan


Thank you very much for good evaluation for me. Japan has just entered the rainy season, weather was no good during the tour, on the first day driving time was too long, it made you boring I think. Sorry for that and I'm very appreciate for your patience. Please come again and enjoy other places that you never been in Japan, there are so many attractive ONSENs in there. Yukihiro
