In addition to transportation fare during tour, my round transportation fare from my house to meeting place is required. As for Yamaguchi, I can only guide you western part of it, including Tunosima Bridge, Motonosumi Inari Shrine, Omishima Island, and Akiyosidai limestone Cave.In that case, East -end of meeting point is JR Shin Yamagchi station. I can't come to Hiroshima,because it is so far away from my house(240km).

Hello, everyone!
My name is Masa.
I’m National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter.
I like travelling, Japanese archery, and tea ceremony.
I visited 17countries including one month stay in Mexico.
Also I’ve lived in Netherlands for a year and three months.
Local people always kindly helped me, when I stayed at foreign countries.
So, I think it’s my turn to support visitors to Japan with the spirit of hospitality”Omotenasi”.
Currently, I live in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka.
Fukuoka is blessed with historic, cultural, scenic sites, as well as fresh seafood.

“ Mojiko and Masayo ”

Masayo is a great guide, making sure I was comfortable in the blistering heat. She planned a great itinerary right to the end! She spoke English well and was very informative about Mojiko and Shimonoseki. Thank you Masayo!


Wow! Corinna! I very thank you for such a heartwarming review and 5 stars on me. I feel like frying into the sky with your comment. You were always polite and tender. Chatting with you was so interesting and inspired me. I’m looking forward to seeing you again. Let’s try tasting blowfish next time although you and fishes have already become friends.
