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.

Thank you. It was marvelous time with you and your friend. I think visiting to distillers for Awamori in Okinawa was interesting tour. You have known the hisrtory of Okinawa and the attitude of people who work for Awamori. Your country is close to us, I hope see you again.

“ Wonderful, fun and educational filled day in Naha. ”

Excellent tour!!! Noriko speaks perfect English. Very knowledgeable about the history and cultural of the area and Japan. My dad and I got to see a lot and “lived” like an Okinawan for a day (e.g. we had a dinner with the locals at a fish market). We learn a great deal and want to come back again some day and stay longer the next time we visit. Thank you Noriko for a wonderful day!!!


Thank you. I am glad to have guests like you who enjoy traveling. I also learned a lot from you and your father. Thank you for choosing Okinawa, it was a great opportunity to meet you and Happy birthday.
