I'm very flexible. If you inform me early enough, basically 1week, 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 a rental car(suits for number of the guests), it is easy to travel and free to move in Okinawa main islands and other remote islands. Free Wi-Fi(2.4GHz, 5GHz) spot is available in the 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 instead of you during the tour. I drive as a designated driver. In this case, you pay for all cost for the rental car (Rental fee, insurance, fuel, toll road, parking fee, etc). If you reserved a rental car already, I can get on your rental car for guiding.

My coverage areas are all Okinawa prefecture including remote islands. But I live in the middle of Okinawa main island, so a starting and ending point should be in Okinawa main-island. And I also request you to pay Meet-up fee(real transportation cost of round trip to and from the meeting place) in cash on site.

It is shown 2000JPY on my pricing page. But meet-up fee will be different based on the transportation fee from my place. I will inform your meet-up fee in your proposal tour plan before your booking.

Here are examples of meet-up fee on each area, Nago city and Onna village are free, Okinawa city and Uruma city are 1,000JPY, Ginowan city and Urasoe city are 1,500JPY, Naha city is 2,000JPY. 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 meet-up fee(more than 8000JPY), I go anywhere as far as I can.

I am working in both Okinawa and Nagasaki, working 2 areas about the half and half days of a month. If you intend to travel in northern Kyushu such as Nagasaki, Saga and Fukuoka, visit my another account page(Nagasaki, Saga and Fukuoka area). There is another my schedule calendar in those areas.

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.

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(行博)。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 a half of month in Okinawa, and the rest of month in Nagasaki as a Triple Lights interpreter tour guide.
我一邊在沖繩縣大概半個月, 一邊在九州長崎周邊當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 whole Japan 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。
