My name is Yuko. I have lived in a small island town called Amakusa for over 30 years. I have worked as a tour guide and I am also a translator for an NPO which helps children in India to go to a nursery school. I love my job. As a professional certified tour guide and a tourist who widely travelled within and beyond Japan, it will be my pleasure to show you around Amakusa and other areas including Nagasaki and Fukuoka .

“ Wonderful Half Day in Fukuoka ”

My parents and I had the delight of spending a half-day with Yuko-san touring Fukuoka. She is punctual, kind and has excellent English - along with a deep knowledge of Fukuoka. She also showed awareness of my older parents and their comfort with walking around the city. I really appreciated her concern for them. Many thanks, Yuko-san.


Dear Bob-san, Thank you for the warm comment. It was a joy to have a tour with you because you and your parents are so nice and intelligent. I was glad to know more about the culture, the tradition and the lifestyle of your parents' home country. Please say thank you to them for me.

“ Excellent guide ”

Yuko tailored our visit perfectly according to our needs. Yuko met us at the port in Nagasaki and helped us buy our tram tickets. We visited the A-bomb Museum and Peace Park, Dejima as well as a shopping area. It was a perfect tour of Nagasaki for us, our daughter got to dress up in a Kimono and Yuko was very patient and aware of how much the children (aged 6&8) could handle. Yuko has great English and had very insightful knowledge to share. Thanks so much Yuko, it was sad to say goodbye!


Thank you for the 5 stars,Janet . I too had a great time with you two and your children. I hope they will keep playing tennis, rugby, football and doing gymnastics and also contribute to making the world without conflicts. Best regards, Yuko

“ Informative Guide ”

Yuko met us at our cruise ship and took us all around Nagasaki using trolleys and walking. She shared with us the history of Nagasaki as well as taking us to all the important sites related to the A-bomb attack on the city. We visited Dejima, and the history with the Dutch that we didn't know about. She was flexible and we were able to modify our itinerary to get back to the ship a little earlier than originally planned. Her English skills are excellent.

“ Great tour of Nagasaki ”

Yukon was excellent. She had an excellent command of the English language and was very knowledgeable. She really brought to life the events surrounding the horrible attack on the people of Nagasaki. I would highly recommend her.


Dear Cheryle Thank you for nice words. I am so happy that you chose me as your guide because I too had great time with you. I hope you will enjoy cherry blossoms in Aomori and see different aspects of Japan there. Best regards, Yuko
