Important

I would like you to have good memories with local residents while you stay in Okinawa. I would like to try to find the best way for your favor. Having guide and asking what you want to know about the city and country, that make your journey more interesting. I prefer to take a tour within a month or two month. So please ask me to guide for you just only two month before or within it.

Transportation fee (taxi, it should be around 24000 yen, if you over 3 person, we need jumbo taxi, it should be around 34000 yen), entrance fee of Shuri castle 840 yen, The navy underground headquarters (440 yen), Peace memorial museum (400 yen). Lunch are excluded. I will reserve the traditional restaurant which you can have Okinawan specialty if you want.

“ Wonderful, fun and educational filled day in Naha. ”

Excellent tour!!! Noriko speaks perfect English. Very knowledgeable about the history and cultural of the area and Japan. My dad and I got to see a lot and “lived” like an Okinawan for a day (e.g. we had a dinner with the locals at a fish market). We learn a great deal and want to come back again some day and stay longer the next time we visit. Thank you Noriko for a wonderful day!!!

Noriko:

Thank you. I am glad to have guests like you who enjoy traveling. I also learned a lot from you and your father. Thank you for choosing Okinawa, it was a great opportunity to meet you and Happy birthday.
