Hi. I was a tour guide for Japanese speak in Japanese in main-land Japan around Tokyo. Now, I live in Okinawa for over ten years with my family. I wanted to be a tour guide for foreigners because I appreciate people's helps when I traveled around world. I traveled over seventy countries. I like traveling because I learn a lot from people who I meet. Finally, I got a certificate for being an English tour guide. I would like you to spend meaningful time in Okinawa. Okinawa has unique culture, they mixed Japanese and Chinese way, then, built up a new own culture. With limited time, I hope you enjoy seeing a lot and knowing a lot.

“ A wonderful day with an extremely good guide ”

She realised a special day tour for us to Churaimi aquarium and Ogimi in the north of Okinawa. She was a very knowledgeable and pleasant guide and companion to us. Nothing was too much for her. And she is a very good driver as well. She made this day our best day in Japan. On the way back to Naha we also visited the cliffs at Manzano. Thank you very much Noriko, we will not forget this day with you!

“ Great days of touring ”

We couldn’t be happier with our 2 days of touring with Noriko. It was great having her drive us around in her car-so comfortable. We were able to cover a lot of ground. She also picked out GREAT restaurants for lunch-we never would have found then ourselves. Even after out tours were done she picked us up at our hotel to bring us to a wonderful sushi place. Our time with Moriko was definitely a high point in our trip to Japan!

“ A Great Afternoon ”

My wife and I find her friendly, professional and very accommodating. We spent an afternoon with her at Makishi Market and Shuri Castle. Besides the usual facts and figures, she gave us some interesting insights of the 2 places and Okinawa in general. Thanks to her, we had good company, a great time and a fruitful afternoon.
