I would like you to have good memories with local residents while you stay in Okinawa. I would like to try to find the best way for your favor. Having guide and asking what you want to know about the city and country, that make your journey more interesting. I prefer to take a tour within a month or two month. So please ask me to guide for you just only two month before or within it.

Hi. I was a tour guide for Japanese speak in Japanese in main-land Japan around Tokyo. Now, I live in Okinawa for over ten years with my family. I wanted to be a tour guide for foreigners because I appreciate people's helps when I traveled around world. I traveled over seventy countries. I like traveling because I learn a lot from people who I meet. Finally, I got a certificate for being an English tour guide. I would like you to spend meaningful time in Okinawa. Okinawa has unique culture, they mixed Japanese and Chinese way, then, built up a new own culture. With limited time, I hope you enjoy seeing a lot and knowing a lot.
