I am Nobuko, English licensed tour guide.
I’ve traveled around many countries like Philippine, China, Singapore, Thai, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Italy, England and America. I usually hired the local guide there especially when I visited the countryside, as I wanted to visit not only city but also countryside. I needed their help because I was not familiar to the language and transportation. And thanks to the guide, I could meet the local people and their daily life. It was really wonderful trip that I couldn’t have experienced without the guide.
I became an English guide to help the tourists have unique experience like I had abroad.
Do you want to rush to the sightseeing bus even though you want to spend more time there?
Or want to just follow the tour conductor to the place you are not interested in ?
If you want to use your precious time more effectively please hire me.
I will plan a tailor made tour only for you.
My aim is to make the world more peaceful.
If you have friends in other country you wouldn't fight with that country, right?
Wishing you bring back your memory of making friends with Japanese.
