I have worked in the multi-national organizations including UN agency for around 30 years and stationed at various cities including Rome, Bangkok and Hanoi. Although I have retired from those international carriers, I wish to keep the international cooperation and develop the friendship with people who visits our country. As I like history and am practicing Noh song and wood curving of Buddha images, I have decided to live in Nara where is surrounded by many historical places and traditional cultures, when I returned back to Japan in 2017. I wish to offer you custom made trip ideas to be able to enjoy the atmosphere of old city, Nara. I am also planning to develop trip plans to enjoy the local cultures. Please call me Yasu.

“ Amazing superguide ”

Yasuhisa speaks perfect English and knows Nara and the surrounding cities and towns backward and forward. But more important, there's nothing he can't do. We asked him for a custom tour with lots of planning, unusual requests, and long hours. He accommodated it all, in some cases beyond what anyone could reasonably expect. He has my highest possible recommendation.


Thank you very much for your kind words. I was also very happy to guide you in Nara.

“ Very good experience ”

Great at everything: English, knowledge of history, attention to customer and ability to navigate in Kyoto


Elena Thank you very much for your kind and nice comments.It might be difficult to arrange the tour in Kyoto that can be satisfied by both adult and children. Hoping to continue nice tours in Hiroshima, Osaka and Hakone. I could discuss more about the fisheries issues in US and Canada..
