The tour highlights mentioned above can be changed depend on the guest's requests, but there are only 3 or 4 shuttle ship in a day to and from, so tour time will be minimum 8 hours and maximum 9 hours. If you stay longer, you have to stay one night, I can manage to make one night 2 days plan for you.
meet-up fee 1500JPY(guide's transportation fee to and from SASEBO), shuttle boat fare(you and guide), rental power assist bicycle fee(you and guide), lunch fee.
((Important)) Presently, no available to observe inside of Kuroshima church(Worl heritage) because of long term maintenance( until the end of Mar. 2021)
((High season))Apr.29 to May 8, Aug.13 to Aug.16, Dec.29 to Jan.5 in every year
((Normal season)) Any other days of above
Meet-up time may be very early (0730), because the first shuttle ship leave at 830am(Off season).
Extra fees are lunch fee , shuttle ferry boat fare and rental power asist bicycle fee are not included in guiding fee, you will pay those on site.
In Kuro-shima, public transportations are poor, so we have to walk or rent a power assist bicycle.(Kuro-shima is not flat land)
We might not be able to observe inside of the churches because of the church condition(Sunday MASS, special event, etc...).
4 or less guests can move by my car from and to the port(4 guests Max, no charge for vehicle operation, you pay only parking and toll road fee, if used), but 5 and more guests have to use the public bus or taxi to and from the shuttle ship port.
4 and fewer guests can move by my car(no charge for vehicle operation, you pay only parking and toll road fee, if used), but 5 and more guests have to move to the shuttle ship port by yourself or rent a suitable rental car. I can drive a rental car instead of you. In this case, you have to pay all costs for the rental car.
It is possible within my covering area, but you need to pay more meet-up fee depends on my transportation fee, and also waste your time, so I don't recommend you meet-up in remote area from SASEBO.
Yukihiro our tour guide is very friendly and knowedgable so far with all things that we’ve asked him, especialy about history and localities. We also felt comfortable with him as our tour guide.
Dear Geraldine, I am so happy to be evaluated greatly as your comment. I feel sorry that we couldn’t go Mt. Inasa outlook because of unexpected construction on the route. Please try again at night in the future, you will be able to observe the one of 3 greatest night view of Japan. Hero
Great tour with Hero. Anything you'd ask, he replies. 4hr is really jampacked and no problem with communication. :)
Thank you very much for high evaluation, Cessy ! This time was short tour, so couldn’t visit many places. I hope you to stay Nagasaki longer next time. Hero
We had an awsome full day with Hero, he was literally our hero. He fixed a custom tour at our request, following alot of the coast and scenic spots around Kjukushima, Sasebo, and Omura bay. His local knowledge is excelent and his English is good. Expect a jovial host, which is always smiling, and a dash of humor. Will recommend! ? ?
Dear Marius, Thank you very much for great evaluation. I appreciate early evaluation on the way of your tour. I could take you many places as many as I could, but made you tired because of long driving. I drove more than 600km in a day!! Actually this is my first meeting with Norwegians who talk to. During the tour I could have a lot of conversation with you so that I understood lot about Norwegian culture, terrain, food, climate, custom, vegetation and so on. I have never been to Norway, but now I am so interested in your country. My view of knowledge was expanded. Take care and enjoy rest of days in Japan. Hope to see you in Norway someday. Hero
He plan a great schedule. He picked the locations i needed to see. His English are good, easy to communication. he also kept me on schedule. Excellent service provided by Mr.Yukihiro. I will highly recommend Yukihiro. Thanks
Hello Hieng!! Thank you very much for great evaluation for me. Next time I will show you around Unzen and Nagasaki. There are many good natural Onsen in Unzen. Okinawa is my another hometown. When you visit Japan again, free to ask me. Yukihiro
