Hi, I'm Nobuhiro Sato. Please call me Nobu.
I am a national licensed tour guide.

I have been living in Chiba for more than 25 years.
Many people arrive at Narita Airport, but just pass through Chiba.
However, there are many good places to visit!
That is why I am focusing on the introduction of this area.
You can visit those places from either Tokyo or Narita by half-day or one-day trip.

Another area I am focusing on is Iwate, my hometown.
It takes more or less 2 hours from Tokyo to Iwate by Shinkansen. It means it is almost equal to the distance between Tokyo and Kyoto! If you have got a JR pass, you do not Need to worry about transportation fee.

Of course, I can guide you in Tokyo!

If you are interested in any of my tours, please feel free to contact me.
I believe you will be satisfied with my tours.

So, see you soon in Japan! read more
