I have no fixed holidays. I'm very flexible, but not always. If you inform me early enough, at least 24hours and more beforehand, I may manage to accept your requests.

During the tour, my coverage areas are mainly local area, so most of the tour use my vehicle(5 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, if used).

I can deal with 4 adults or 2 adults plus 3 children max with my vehicle. 5 adults and more guests need a rental car. I have a professional drivers license, I can drive any types of vehicle(even drive big bus). I drive as a designated driver. Depends on the numbers of customer, I rent a suitable size car and drive during your tour. In this case, you have to pay for all cost for the rental car.

My coverage areas are Nagasaki, Saga, Fukuoka and Kumamoto. I live in Nagasaki, so depens on where I go to meet you first(meet-up), I will request you to pay Meet-up fee. It is showed 1,000JPYen on my pricing page. But meet-up fee will be different price based on the transportation fee from and to where I stay. I will inform you meet-up fee in the proposal tour plan before your booking. I try to choose cheapest way, but If meet-up fee costs more than 8,000JPYen(include hotel fee), I may not accept your tour request. But if you don't care high pick-up fee, I can go anywhere as far as I can.

Okinawa is not on the available guiding city list, but if you provide my transportation fee from Nagasaki and hotel fee, I can guide you. Actually, I've lived in Okinawa for 8 years until March 2018 and I am qualified and legistered as a Okinawa Prefectural Official tour guide interpreter.

Hokkaido is not on the list too. 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 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.

Hello, everyone!! I'm eager to introduce this unique country, Japan to foreign guests. I am not a professional interpreter. I have just retired from Japan Ground Self-Defense Force(JGSDF=Japanese Army). I've been in the military for 36 years. I experienced shooting, rappelling, map navigation, scuba diving, parachute jumping, and so on.

I have spent most of my life as a Army NCO(Non-commissioned officer) . My job experiences are only in the military world, 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.

I speak English, Chinese (simplify & traditional) , not like a native though.
