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.

We want to thank Noriko for the wonderful tour of Southern Okinawa. We enjoyed learning about the history and culture of the Okinawan people.
Thank you for a wonderful day and thank you for choosing Okinawa. It was great to see you as a guide.
Noriko was an excellent guide for our short 4 day visit to Okinawa. She led us to the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, and it was a great tour. What made Noriko so special was her love for her home island Okinawa, and her passion and knowledge of it's history was super impressive! She was wonderful, and her genuine admiration for the island was fantastic, including all of the background and historical lessons she was able to teach us. The aquarium was really exciting too. A great day!! Thank you Noriko!!
