I'm very flexible. If you inform me early enough, at least 72 hours and more beforehand, I may manage to accept your requests.

During the tour, my coverage areas are mainly poor public transportation area, so mostly use my vehicle(4 adult Max), it is easy to travel and free to move. I don't charge for the vehicle operation fee (only request you to pay costs for parking and toll road fee in cash on site, if used).

My vehicle can take 4 adult guests max . 5 adult guests and more need a rental car. I have a professional drivers license, I can drive most of types vehicle. Depends on the numbers of customer, I rent a suitable size car and drive during your tour. I drive as a designated driver. In this case, you have to pay for all cost for the rental car (Rental fee, insurance, fuel, toll road, parking fee, etc).

My coverage areas are Nagasaki, Saga and Fukuoka. But I live in near Ohmura city in Nagasaki prefecture, so depens on where I go to meet you(meet-up), I will request you to pay Meet-up fee(transportation cost for round) on site. It is showed 3000JPY on my pricing page. But meet-up fee will be different price based on the transportation fee from where I stay. I will inform you meet-up fee in your proposal tour plan before your booking.

Here are basic meet-up fee on each area, Ohmura city is Free, Sasebo city is 1,500JPY, Nagasaki city is 3,000JPY, Saga ,4,000JPY and Fukuoka 8,000JPY. I try to choose cheapest way, but If meet-up fee costs more than 8,000JPY, I may not accept your tour request. But if you don't care high pick-up fee(more than 8000JPY), I go anywhere as far as I can.

I am working in both Nagasaki and Okinawa, so working 2 places about the half and half days of a month. I'd lived in Okinawa for 8 years until March 2018 and I am qualified and registered as a Okinawa Prefectural interpreter tour guide .

On my schedule calendar, available days means that I stay in Nagasaki, on the contrary, unavailable days means I am in Okinawa(mostly), so I might be able to guide you in Okinawa. If you intend to have a private tour in Okinawa, please inform me through this web site, I might be able to guide you.

Hokkaido is also not on the list. But I lived in Hokkaido for 10years when I was young and traveled all over Hokkaido by mortorcycle. So I can guide you if you provide for my transportation and cheapest hotel costs.

One of my hobby is handmade Japanese Soba noodles. I can teach you how to make Japanese Soba. Soba is made of backwheet flower, one of Japanese traditional healthy low calorie food. I hope you don't have back wheat allergy.

Making Handmade Soba and Tempura Experience activity has been showed on my original tour list.
Please try it.

About

Hello, everyone!! My name is Yukihiro, call me "HERO". I'm eager to introduce this unique country, Japan to foreign guests. I am not a professional interpreter. I have retired from Japan Ground Self-Defense Force(JGSDF=Japanese Army) on March 2018.
大家好! 我名字叫xing2 bo2, 請叫我xing bo。我喜歡跟外國遊客分享這個很有意思的國家---日本國。我是個業餘的翻譯導遊, 不太專業, 在2018年3月我退休了日本陸上自衛隊(日本陸軍)。

I have spent most of my career as a Army NCO(Non-commissioned officer) . My job experiences are only in the military, but there are variety of specialties, so I didn't feel boredom. I lived in many places all over Japan, such as Hokkaido 10years, Chiba 15years, Okinawa 8years and more places.
我在軍隊當陸軍士官過了大部分的生活。我的工作經驗只在軍隊內,但是它有很多兵種和工作,所以我沒有膩了。我住過日本各地的很多地方,例如北海道10年,千葉縣15年,沖繩8年還有別的有些地方。

I am working for the half of month as a tour-conductor in Okinawa Japan. Rest of month, I live in Nagasaki Prefecture, and work as a Triple Lights interpreter tour guide.
我一邊在沖繩當旅遊服務員大概半個月,一邊在九州長崎當Triple Lights的翻譯導游工作剩餘的月。

I am registered as a Okinawa prefectural interpreter tour guide (English & Chinese), but don't have a government certification. So I am brushing my skill up to get it.
我登記了沖繩縣的地域翻譯導遊(英/中文),可是沒有全國的。所以為了獲得全國導遊資格,我正在繼續學外語。

I speak English, Chinese (simplify & traditional) , no problem to guide you, not like a native though.
我會說英語和中文(簡/繁),作為您的導游沒問題,沒有母語的人那麼好。

“ Awsome custom tour ”

We had an awsome full day with Hero, he was literally our hero. He fixed a custom tour at our request, following alot of the coast and scenic spots around Kjukushima, Sasebo, and Omura bay. His local knowledge is excelent and his English is good. Expect a jovial host, which is always smiling, and a dash of humor. Will recommend! 👍 😊

Yukihiro:

Dear Marius, Thank you very much for great evaluation. I appreciate early evaluation on the way of your tour. I could take you many places as many as I could, but made you tired because of long driving. I drove more than 600km in a day!! Actually this is my first meeting with Norwegians who talk to. During the tour I could have a lot of conversation with you so that I understood lot about Norwegian culture, terrain, food, climate, custom, vegetation and so on. I have never been to Norway, but now I am so interested in your country. My view of knowledge was expanded. Take care and enjoy rest of days in Japan. Hope to see you in Norway someday. Hero

good guide and plan

Yukihiro:

Thank you very much for good evaluation for me. Japan has just entered the rainy season, weather was no good during the tour, on the first day driving time was too long, it made you boring I think. Sorry for that and I'm very appreciate for your patience. Please come again and enjoy other places that you never been in Japan, there are so many attractive ONSENs in there. Yukihiro
