My name is Tateo. I am officially registerd English tour guide and introducing about Okinawa's history,culture, and nature.I am elderly person but have gone through lots of expericences that happened during US occupation after WW2. For the example, change of monetary system(US dollar to Yen),Change of traffic regulation(driving vehicle from right to left).The reversion of Okinawa to main land Japan was biggest historical event.The US administered Okinawa for 27 years. As a result, thing were Americanized in many aspects. Historically, Okinawa was once independent nation until 1872.During Kingdum era, Okinawa actively traded with China, South Asia Countries, Korea, and Japan. In the end, our culture is quite differ much from main land Japan. For instance, architectural technique, daily customs, and culture are also unique. Okinawa is the only prefecture belong to subtropical climate zone. Even winter time, it's neither hot nor cold. People can enjoy marine sport all through the year.Canoeing, Kayaking, Diving, and Snorkeling are popular. Besides, beatiful white sand beaches and attractive coastline are abundant. Green sea water and blue sky have been lured people from all over the world. Traditional music and dance are worth seeing. Please visit Okinawa and enjoy extraordinary trip. I will be looking forward to seeing you soon.

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.

Hello, everyone!! My name is Yukihiro(行博), call me "HERO". I'm eager to introduce this unique country, Japan to foreign guests. I am not a professional interpreter. I have retired from Japan Ground Self-Defense Force(JGSDF=Japanese Army) on March 2018. 大家好! 我名字叫xing2 bo2, 請叫我xing bo。我喜歡跟外國遊客分享這個很有意思的國家---日本國。我是個業餘的翻譯導遊, 不太專業, 在2018年3月我退休了日本陸上自衛隊(日本陸軍)。 I have spent most of my career as a Army NCO(Non-commissioned officer) . My job experiences are only in the military, but there are variety of specialties, so I didn't feel boredom. I lived in many places all over Japan, such as Hokkaido 10years, Chiba 15years, Okinawa 8years and more places. 我在軍隊當陸軍士官過了大部分的生活。我的工作經驗只在軍隊內,但是它有很多兵種和工作,所以我沒有膩了。我住過日本各地的很多地方,例如北海道10年,千葉縣15年,沖繩8年還有別的有些地方。 I am working for the half of month as a tour-conductor in Okinawa Japan. Rest of month, I live in Nagasaki Prefecture, and work as a Triple Lights interpreter tour guide. 我一邊在沖繩當旅遊服務員大概半個月,一邊在九州長崎當Triple Lights的翻譯導游工作剩餘的月。 I am registered as a Okinawa prefectural interpreter tour guide (English & Chinese), but don't have a whole Japan area certification. So I am brushing my skill up to get it. 我登記了沖繩縣的地域翻譯導遊(英/中文),可是沒有全國的。所以為了獲得全國導遊資格,我正在繼續學外語。 I speak English, Chinese (simplify & traditional) , no problem to guide you, not like a native though. 我會說英語和中文(簡/繁),作為您的導游沒問題,沒有母語的人那麼好。

Trying to find a tour guide who is knowledgeable about Okinawa? I am a guide-interpreter based in Okinawa who majored in oceanology at the University of Ryukyus in Okinawa and has 13-year experience of teaching science in Okinawa and Hawaii. Therefore, I love introducing Okinawan precious nature both on land and in the sea with care for the conservation. Besides science, my other strength is introducing culture, especially, Japanese Budo (Martial Arts) and Okinawan traditional "Sanshin" music. If you want to make your trip to Okinawa unique, worthwhile, and unforgettable, let's travel together! (In addition to Okinawa, I can guide Mt. Fuji area where I was born and raised. An additional transportation fee is needed.)

Tateo ? What An Incredible Guide!

We booked Tateo for 3 days to tour around Okinawa, and what an incredible experience it’s been! Our lovely Guatemalan friend Maria absolutely adores him. Tateo speaks excellent English and is a superb guide – he explains everything with such detail and shares the rich history of each place. Whether you have a list of places you want to visit or you’re open to suggestions, Tateo can plan an amazing day (or days!) just for you. With him by your side, you’re guaranteed to enjoy every moment in Okinawa. We highly recommend Tateo – he’ll make your trip truly special!

Thank you very much for allowing me to be your important friend Maria's Okinawa tour guide for 3 days. She is very pleasant person and I was really happy that she told me many interesting stories about GUATEMALA, DUBAI, and INDIA that I had neveer heard about in OkInawa. The 3 days I spent together have become a unforgetable days. Thank you very much for taking the time to write nice review. Lastly, I would like to thank Maria, and all other staff members for their help. Regards Tateo U.

Hi, Lisa T. Today was extremely bad weather with the rainy season that symbolize Okinawa continuing wholw day. Still, I'm glad I was able to show you around the popular places in Okinawa. I hope that you will be blessed with nice weather in next destination Taiwan and both of you have another enjoyable trip. Thank you for your good evaluation and gratuity. Regards Tateo U.

Wonderful Day

Tateo was a wonderful guide and we learned so much on our visit to the Peace Memorial. It is truly a moving experience to see the soldiers of the U.S. & UK honored alongside the Japanese in Okinawa. (The museum unfortunately had disputable information.)
