Call me Bobby! I was raised in the USA but spent years of my life in Japan as well. I'm a native Japanese speaker and Japanese culture plays a big part in my life. I love meeting new people and showing them a good time in one Japan's homiest cities, Okayama. I'm also a freelance photographer and videographer so I enjoy teaching basics of photography in some of the more scenic parts of the city.

“ Okayama Kurashiki ”

From the moment I started to plan this trip, Yamato was my first guide I had decided to book with Triplelights. He turned out to be great, as he quickly communicated with me and we got an itinerary sorted within days. Thank you Yamato for a lovely afternoon walking through parts of Okayama and Kurashiki. The time went too quickly as we strolled around Kurashiki and also enjoyed some refreshments together while you gave me an insight into life of Okayama. A few hours just wasn’t long enough. I really enjoyed your company and loved hearing your stories of Japan. Yamato was able to help me regarding transport for Himeji and Uno, which was greatly appreciated. Goodluck with all your ventures and life in Okayama 😉


Thanks for being just plain awesome Franca :) é stato un gran piacere di conoscerti. Spero che vieni di nuovo a Okayama un giorno! Take care and stay cool. Cheers!
