Yukihiro (Hero)行博

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。

Hi! I'm Yoshi. I was born and raised in Nagasaki. I'm very familiar with the best sightseeing locations and attractions in the city. Nagasaki is a fascinating and interesting city visited by lots of foreign tourists every year. I have guided many foreign tourists as an English tour guide for the past several years.. I always enjoy guiding every tourist and provide them with my best hospitality. I'll be looking forward to seeing you and sharing a wonderful time with you. See you soon!

Hi! I am Kazue. I am from Fukuoka and live in the central city. I spent almost 20 years traveling around the world as a cabin attendant. Meeting different people, different cultures and eating local food were best things in my career. This experience definitely widened my perspective and will help me in some way when I work as a guide. Since I spent half my life outside of Japan, I noticed our culture and traditions are very unique and became more interested in historical sites in Japan. For my personal life, I am a mom of twins. It is still a hard work but I am enjoying a lot with them. We take them around Kyushu whenever possible for their fun and experience. We all love traveling after all. I am looking forward to showing you around our hometown soon!

I had worked for the Japan's biggest travel agency JTB (Japan Travel Bureau) for 35 years as a tour escort for Japanese. I visited 68 countries and of course all over Japan as well. So I’m familiar with almost all of the tourist attractions in Japan. More over I’m also a professional magician now. I’m a member magician of The Magic Castle in Hollywood in US. That's why I made a decision to become an English tour guide. I acquired a tour guide license issued by the Japanese government with a lot of hard work in 2016 and I started from the following year. I guided 1,420 people with 17 groups totaly in 2017and 1,600 people in 1018. Through long work for travel business, I was assigned to excursions of all over Japan, such as Sapporo, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Okinawa and others, which gave me intimate knowledge about most places in the country. In addition, I am adept in business fields and knowledgeable about historical sites, traditional culture and modern subcultures in Japan. My wife is a disabled person with an intractable disease who needs 24-hour nursing care. Our daughter takes care of my wife while I am guiding. Even if my schedule is free, I may not be able to take the tour on days when my daughter cannot cooperate. Please ask me first. If it is possible.

Hello, everyone! I am Yoshiharu, a national certified tour guide. Fukuoka is my birthplace, so I have a close attachment to this region. Though you may not be familiar with the name of Fukuoka, I assure you that Fukuoka will provide new discovery and pleasure to your stay in Japan. I have a passion to introduce my country and regions from many points of views. Japan is a country which offers original culture and history. On the other hand, Japan has another attractiveness represented by advanced toilets with many functions, hotels with robot receptionists and so on. The co-existing society with the image of old Japan and the present Japan with high technology definitely make Japan a more attractive place. Not only take you to sightseeing spots and give you some explanations, but also I will help you to learn much more deeply about Japan and Japanese people, their way of thinking and lifestyle. In Addition to the tour guide license, I have received the qualification of international kikisake-shi,.sake sommelier. I will do my best to make your stay in Japan more memorable in a fun way. Let’s go out for new adventures together! (NOTE) I am not a land operator. It means that I don't make reservations for vans, accommodations and other things for you except I think it is indispensable for me. I can give you some advice but, for example, if you want to charter a van for your travel, please contact taxi companies and make a reservation by yourselves. If you have difficulties doing it that way, please contact GoWithGuide or land operators in Japan and your country. Thank you for your understanding.

Hi, my name is Naoko. I was born and raised in Saga on Kyushu Island. I'm very familiar with many sightseeing spots and attractions of the Kyushu area thanks to my long term life experience here. I love traveling, in which I can experience the local cultures. It is a pleasure to find hidden spots where only local people are familiar. Please contact me and join my tour, if you are tired of city tours! Depending on your interests, I will guide you historical sites, cultural places, handicraft studios and so on. In my private life, I am a mom of two children (a daughter and a son). I would like to talk about an ordinary Japanese family life if you like. I'm looking forward to seeing you, spending a wonderful time with you. See you soon!

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.

Asako I.

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.

Asako I.
