My name is Asako. I would love to show you around the cities in Kyushu Island. There are so many beautiful sights to see and delicious food to eat.

Born and raised in kyushu Island, I have been juggling three jobs, that is, being a mother of four children, a professional tour guide and a teacher.

I hope to see you in the near future.

“ Very approachable. She knows her city. ”

Asako is easy to talk with and knowledgeable. She crafted a tour that met our interests and was flexible to add a few changes to meet the immediate circumstances. Highly recommended.

“ Yuri on Ice tour ”

Asako-san was the most wonderful tour guide she really took me to all places Yuri on Ice locations based on the anime. Discussed Karastu and Kyushu in general with history and recommendation in other places I was visiting. Very knowledgeable, professional, and great communication leading up to the trip. I could have done the places myself, but with Asako she made it more fun and enjoyable. Booking with triplight was easy and reasonable. Again communication outstanding. Thank you for a very memorable tour.


Tina-san, thank you so much for the highest review. It was my great pleasure to serve you as a guide. Hope you had a great dinner at Caravan. Thank you again for choosing me from among many guides. Arigato-gazaimasita! Best wishes.

“ Kyushu Discoveries ”

Memorable. We learned so much about Fukuoka, Beppu, Karatsu and Nagasaki from her. She is well versed, punctual and hospitable. We like her to be our tour guide again if we visit Hiroshima. We'll also recommend her to our friends.


Hi Wai, Thank you very much for joining my tours. I am glad to hear that you have safely returned home. Hope to see you again in the near future.

“ First day with Asako in Dazaifu ”

Asako was a bit early from our appointed time, but it was ok since we are ready anyway. It was overcast and drizzled the whole day. She is very knowledgeable and made Dazaifu interesting even if the weather was not cooperating. We bought some souvenir items with her help, and then treated us to tea and mochi. Well spent half day tour👍.


Hi Vivian, Thank you very much for your kind words. You are such a kind person, so that I had a great time. Looking forward to seeing you this morning.
