Update of the site: I will be in Nagasaki, Kyushu, in August, tentatively, August the 4th(Tue.) through the 6th (Thur.). I am happy to show you around "hidden Christian sites" with terraced paddy fields, "TA-NA-DA". The sceneries imprinted in Venezia come to my mind when I stand near the Hirado pier. Our itnerary (meeting at Sasebo at 9:00 and finishing there at about 17:30) includes Whale Museum, one of the main local industries of the time, too. I will help you with information on other tourists’ spots on the beaten track. If interested, please e-mail me for the particulars. (as of March 10, 2020)

I am available during the public holiday seasons and semester-end breaks; April 28 - May 6, Dec. 25 - January 7, and the month of August. Could you please bookmark them on your calendar and I will be ready to attend to you. Thank you. Hideaki
