Hi, I'm Nobuhiro Sato. Please call me Nobu.
I am a national licensed tour guide.

I have been living in Chiba for more than 25 years.
Many people arrive at Narita Airport, but just pass through Chiba.
However, there are many good places to visit!
That is why I am focusing on the introduction of this area.
You can visit those places from either Tokyo or Narita by half-day or one-day trip.

Another area I am focusing on is Iwate, my hometown.
It takes more or less 2 hours from Tokyo to Iwate by Shinkansen. It means it is almost equal to the distance between Tokyo and Kyoto! If you have got a JR pass, you do not Need to worry about transportation fee.

Of course, I can guide you in Tokyo!

If you are interested in any of my tours, please feel free to contact me.
I believe you will be satisfied with my tours.

So, see you soon in Japan!

“ We are all Happy ! ”

It was quick, polite and relieved. We were a lot of people, but his navigation was easy to understand. I would like to ask for your continued support from now on.

“ One day tour in Narita ”

Nobu took us on a customized tour in Narita which was very informative and enjoyable. We visited different shrines and we were fortunate enough to attend a Shinto ceremony in one of the shrines. Very impressive!! We also visited a sake brewery where we attended a presentation on the production of sake. Nobu did everything thinkable to make our tour as memorable as possible in which he has succeeded 100%. I would highly recommend Nobu.

“ visit to Aomori/Hirosaki ”

I had engaged Nobu over the net. Poor command of English and poor knowledge of Hirosaki city. Not great with background info on some of the sights we went to see. He had no plan B when we decided not to go to the Nebuta festival museum. He also led us around the long way from the Aomori shuttle drop off point to the JR Station.

“ Easy breezy ”

The guided tour was really relaxing n Mr Nobu allowed us ample time to do as we wish. We were on a budget and he courteously told us the dos and don'ts of where to go and where to eat. Great guy! Thanks Mr Nobu.
